Arrival/Check-In: Schloss Reinhartshausen is a 5-star hotel in Germany’s Rheingau wine region, managed by Kempinski and set on land with a long history. After centuries of housing the fort of local knights, a palace was built in its place in 1801. Princess Marianne of Prussia bought it in 1855 and, until her death, treated it with flair and a high level of luxury. That sense of luxury was apparent from the moment I entered. The space was grand. The reception was warm, and check-in was swift and efficient.
Guest Quarters: As a 200-year-old converted palace, Schloss Reinhartshausen has 63 guestrooms in three wings, each wing with its own set of elevators. One wing is devoted to suites with relatively modern décor. Two wings are kept classic and historic. I stayed in one of those wings, in a junior suite which opened to a large entry hall and, in turn, to a large bedroom with a gas-burning fireplace and three windows overlooking the Rhine River. The walls were covered with paper of broad and subtle stripes in shades of ivory. And the bathroom, rich in toiletries and towels, left nothing to be desired.
Services/Amenities: Schloss Reinhartshausen presents a number of dining and drinking possibilities. Located in one of Germany’s most prestigious wine regions, the hotel has its own vineyard and offers a wine list with an enviable choice of the local product.
The Experience: Marianne of Prussia amassed an art collection of 600 paintings. About 300 pieces of her collection still adorn the hotel’s private and public spaces. Today the staff enhances her palace with its kindnesses and attentiveness. Schloss Reinhartshausen still looks like and still feels like a grand palace. And it is only 35 minutes from the Frankfurt International Airport.
