Not Dutch, but living here a number of years. It is not so much that they are grand or historic at all, but rather an integral part of every day life. In each town it is likely the most well known land-mark and directions to and from it are important when visiting said town, since you probably came their by train. :)
Are you asking if the English sentence can be, "The station is located to the west from the hotel?" If so, the answer is no. If you say the sentence above, one it just sounds wrong and two it makes the reader think you are starting from the hotel and not from the station.
