According to The New York Times, Rotterdam is in the Top 10 of Places to Go.
Why not stay in a unique and typical Dutch building, just outside Rotterdam - a Converted Windmill !!!
The mill was build in 1836 and helped draining the Zuidplaspolder, a skill where the Dutch are famous for. It's located only 25 min. away from Rotterdam City Center and only 5 min. from Gouda, famous for its cheese.
The old windmills of Kinderdijk (Unesco World Heritage) are also less than 30 min. away.
