The Hilton Frankfurt Airport is one of the best airport hotels I have been to! It is so conveniently located and directly attached to the airport of Frankfurt. No shuttle service needed here! It opened in 2011 and everything is still looking fresh and new!
The lobby area is just fantastic. It is like a large atrium with a lot of light and space. As you look up, you can actually see the planes flying by. The check-in staff were very professional and kind. They have us all the information we needed to know about the hotel and its facilities. After some administration, they handed us the keys and guided us to our beautiful deluxe room. All the restaurants are located on the ground floor. There’s a bar/restaurant called The Fifth right opposite the check-in desk offering burgers, sandwiches, etc. At Rise, guests can enjoy several international dishes. Also, breakfast is served here every morning. I liked the overall design of the hotel, contemporary and modern.
Our room, a deluxe executive room, was located on one of the executive floors (floors 9-10). The room we stayed in was comfortable and had all the amenities I would expect of a four star hotel. The king size bed was great to sleep in! The large bathroom had both a bath tub and separate walk-in shower. The room was immaculately clean and temperature was great! The comfy couch was very relaxing for watching television later that night! Loved it!
The executive lounge was located on our floor and actually was one of the best Hilton executive lounges I have experienced! The food throughout the day was excellent and all soft and hot drinks are complimentary all day long. From 6pm – 8.30pm alcoholic drinks such as white/red wine and some spirits are offered as well. The food was great too! Small hamburgers, vegetables, pasta and some sweets. The lounge was large featuring several sitting areas. It was great to hang out reading a book or surfing with my tablet. Service was fantastic and nothing was asked for too much!
With all the eating and drinking, I wanted to work out. The fitness center at the Hilton Frankfurt Airport is large and one thing I noticed is the nice temperature. I don’t know why, but most times it is just too hot at a hotel’s fitness center, but here it was as it should be, not too warm… and not too cold. Perfect! After a great work out I used the steam room and felt completely zen afterwards.
After a wonderful night, we had breakfast at the executive lounge. The small buffet was an excellent start of the day and I appreciated the calm atmosphere at the lounge! At some lounges, you do need to look for a place to sit, but no need to worry about that here… the lounge is huge!
If you ever need a place to stay near the airport of Frankfurt, do not hesitate to stay at the Hilton. With direct access to the airport, great rooms and fantastic service… This is THE place to be!
