Tribute Portfolio sets up in the Netherlands with the opening of The Slaak Rotterdam
Tribute Portfolio, one of Marriott International’s new brands, welcomes The Slaak Rotterdam, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel within its European portfolio, following an impressive transformation of the emblematic building ‘Het Slaakhuys’, originally designed by the Dutch architect Jo Vegter in 1952.
This new design hotel, part of Marriott’s Tribute Portfolio, is fashioned from a former newspaper press room in Rotterdam. The aesthetic has a heavy hipster edge: expect arched brass floor lamps and graffiti wall art in the loft-style rooms.
The Slaak Hotel, for a design interpretation of the fifties
Another interpretation of the design of the fifties, is the brand new hotel The Slaak, located in the dynamic district of Kralingen-West, just a few minutes from the city centre and the old port. This establishment is part of the Marriott Group’s Tribute Portfolio lifestyle collection.
There is an old Adler typewriter in the lobby. Record players remind us of the time the building was built for the social democratic newspaper “Het Vrije Volk”. All 74 rooms of the boutique hotel are so spacious that a real wooden writing desk has been placed in it.
The beautiful printing pressrooms and newsrooms have made way for thedesign. This former headquarters of a Dutch newspaper is just a stone’s throw away from the city centre and the Old Port of Rotterdam.
