Hotel New York is the fourth studio album recorded by the Dutch pop/rock singer Anouk and released on December 3, 2004 in the Netherlands. The album is named for the location where Anouk wrote all its songs: Hotel New York in Rotterdam. Debuting at number one, the album was a major success, staying at that top spot for twelve weeks. "Hotel New York" remained on the Dutch albums chart for eighty-seven weeks, eventually going triple platinum. In Belgium, the album spent a week at number one and stayed in the top 50 for 72 weeks. The first single off the album "Girl" peaked at number two on the Dutch Top 40, and so did "Lost", the second single. The third single "Jerusalem" peaked at number twenty and the final single "One Word" peaked again at number two.
Hotel New York peaked at number 2 in the 2005 Album top 100 Year-end charts, meaning it was the second best-selling album in the Netherlands.
In Belgium, Hotel New York sold over 50,000 copies and thus was certified platinum. EMI Holland confirmed on December 2 that the album had shipped over 210,000 copies in the Netherlands, resulting a 3x Platinum certification.
Hotel New York was also a big hit in Israel, 3 singles of the album charted there at the same time: Lost is the single with the highest rating at #2 (11 weeks), Jerusalem at #7 (8 weeks) and Girl was number 10 for the 10th consecutive week. (This hit list is based on airplay and interactive voting.) [as of February 2].
"Girl", the first single released from the album, became the best-performing single ever for a female artist in the Netherlands, despite the fact it never topped the Dutch Top 40. With this record, she beats Céline Dion with "My Heart Will Go On", who kept the number one position for best selling female single for a long time, and Britney Spears' "...Baby One More Time", which was number 2 and now #3 best-performing female single in the Netherlands.
"Lost" reached the number 9 position on May 17, 2008, three years after its release, on the Norway charts. The single has been added on the album Who's Your Momma (2007) and planned for a release in June 2008
"One Word" was a big hit in Albania; it reached the number one position on the radio airplay charts.
