Staying at a hotel in your home town really is like a twelve-hour mini business trip. I met up with ten of the biggest and best bloggers from Rotterdam last Wednesday at the CitizenM Rotterdam – and got to spend the night at this all-new boutique hotel in the city center. I love the concept of CitizenM– and I’m not just saying they were kind enough to foot the bill. The rooms at CitizenM are small but very comfortable and well thought out. Mine had a lovely view over the historic Oude Haven area to boot. The size of the rooms keeps prices affordable and encourages you to spend your free time in the huge, perfectly styled lounge area that comes complete with the latest Vitra furniture, iMacs and the best design books and magazines. Perfect for a relaxed night working on your own – or for a casual business meeting. I had a great time listening to what all the other local bloggers had to tell about their work – and of course I was very proud to show everyone all the great stuff that’s been going on lately here on Interiorator.com.
I’ve included a list of all the bloggers who attended – it’s great to see so many talented news, fashion, food and lifestyle bloggers from the same city. Check them out – I’m sure you’ll like them.
