Dam it!(spelling adjusted) Why didnt anyone mention Duvel at this property before..... Yes, I would have changedmore than a few stays to Rotterdam for this alone. This isnt sarcasm either, this will make for a heck of lounge visit!!

Note to fellow posters, details about the food and drinks in the lounge is very helpful...... some of us, book a hotel based mostly on the lounge

The Hilton Rotterdam Executive lounge is very nice.
You can find it at the entrance.
Service from hostess is 5-stars.

Rates seem a lot higher for 2014. Time to wait for the BAR/Easy Cancellation to fall after the sale ends!

Should be plenty of J/S + Suites, each room on a corner of building is a Suite! Not even like Lounge is near Exec Floors, nothing more annoying than top 14th floor room whilst exec lounge being on ground floor.
This fantastic Hilton hotel only has 10 floors.....

Well, anyone who requires a bath(tub) and expects Golds will be upgraded (and over a Diamond) to a higher level of accommodation with full bath has high expectations...

One should definitely pay for what one requires, and then hope for further benefits. For scubaccr'ds reference:

Gold HHonors guests receive upgrades to preferred rooms, which may include the next-best available room from the room type booked. Upgrades may also include rooms with desirable views, corner rooms, rooms on high floors, rooms with special amenities, or rooms on Executive Floors, as identified by each property. Upgrades exclude executive suites, villas and specialty accommodations (which may include, but not limited to, "Vista" and "Villa" accommodation types), subject to the discretion of the hotel. Group reservations and certain rates are not eligible for complimentary upgrades. All upgrades are granted on a space-available basis for the entire stay, as determined at the time of check-in. Preferred rooms are identified by each individual property and may vary within each brand. Upgrades will be given only for one room for the member, regardless of additional rooms the member may have purchased at or after the time of booking.

Booked 3 nights in October. A Thursday (rates were EUR159) I used Cash and Points for 20K+EUR65. Friday and Saturday were an amazing EUR75, so I am paying for those nights.
As a Gold, I should expect Lounge access, and breakfast at the buffet (or in the lounge only?)
Anyone use the fitness room? I will likely go jogging once but if it's rainy I might use the gym.

Honestly, as a gold, you should never expect it unless you are upgraded to an exec floor.

Anyone got the t&c to post again?

Maybe the hotel is more generous than some?

I have stayed here a lot in the past two years and while I am Diamond I feel confident that as Gold you will get access to the Executive Lounge by way of an upgrade to the Executive Floor. RTM is by no means a stingy hotel and the GM is very well regarded. The EL can be poor at times in terms of F&B especially during the day but the chef does send some very nice and non-stodgy items to the lounge that you won't ever find in the BA Concorde Room! I have eaten langoustines in there on numerous occassions and delicious roast beef. I forgive them for the lack of spirits with the Duvel and the aforementioned food. Having said that, the hot items are just pure unhealthy stodge!

The Hilton Rotterdam in 1963 had a grand opening with Conrad Hilton himself attending. Much of the city's downtown area had been wiped out by the Nazi bombardment in May 1940, with many hotels and restaurants gone. Because of its loction next to Town Hall and major companies, the Hilton restaurant became a place where important local economic decisions were arranged. Over the years, with more restaurants opening, the Hilton lost it's importance. Business people preferred more stylish and intimate restaurants in the suburbs.

After last year's full renovation of the Hilton Rotterdam, one big retail area remained unoccupied and for lease. In early 2015 this space will be going to accomodate a brand new restaurant 'Joelia' by top Chef Mario Ridder. This chef currently operates a two-Michelin Star rated Restaurant The Zwethheul near Delft. However business is slow because the current generation doesn't want to spend an hour on travel back and forth anymore. So the restaurant is moving back downtown.

You may need to use your favorite translation engine to transfer this story from dutch into your home language.

A local TV news-item is availabe on youtube which shows the current restaurant and new location. http://youtu.be/i4yKAu3XdIY Mr. Ridder says: "The guest are staying away these days, because they don't like to travel for an hour, that's why we are relocating our business to our guests."

Edit: it looks like the Hilton Global Media Center already published this news on September 26 (in English!)

Stay in Hilton Rotterdam this night. The Breakfast downstairs in getting better with fresh products. As Diamond you can have your breakfast in this restaurant instead of the lounge.
