WestCord Hotels is a purely Dutch owned and operated family business, with its origins on the Island of Vlieland. In the 1960s tourism started growing on the Wadden Islands so in 1968 baker Emo Westers bought his 18-year-old son Harry a hotel, “De Wadden”. The very first WestCord Hotel.

Today, there are 16 WestCord Hotels throughout the Netherlands. A number of hotels operate under their own name and are soft-branded ‘by WestCord’, each a unique story and a link to Dutch history. Like Hotel New York in Rotterdam, located in the former headquarters of the famous ‘Holland-America Line’.

We are only satisfied when our guests are satisfied, and everything we do is aimed to contribute to the guest satisfaction.

Involved, sincere, personal and cool. That is what WestCord stands for. Will you become our new colleague? Leave your information down below and we will reach out to you as soon as possible.
