Hilton Frankfurt Airport

Dec 1, 2012
2012 / December 2012

Arrival/Check-In: The hotel is part of a brand-new complex called The Square that incorporates an elegant interior courtyard concept within the airport complex — complete with select restaurants — and a second Hilton option, the Hilton Garden Inn. As soon as I entered The Square and approached the desk, a member of the staff stepped forward to greet me. Check-in was exceptionally smooth, and I was escorted to my room on one of the two executive-level floors. The glass elevators require a room key to function, which added to my sense of comfort and safety. After my bags had been deposited, I was shown the entrance to the executive lounge and how to access the space using my room key.

Guest Quarters: My spacious, light-filled room, fashioned in soothing earth tones by JOI-Design, had a generous desk and ample surface space, along with an ergonomic Mirra chair designed by Herman Miller and a cushioned footrest. Huge, soundproof windows offered nice views of a nearby forested area and the Frankfurt skyline. The king-sized Hilton Serenity Bed was comfortable, and the large closet had automatic lighting that turned on when the door was opened. The well-designed bathroom featured a large, walk-in shower and separate soaking tub. My room included a small refrigerator, a clock radio with an MP3 connection, easy-to-access electrical outlets and plenty of lighting — plus the option of black-out curtains for day naps. I was especially pleased there was a separate tea kettle — having to run hot water through a coffeemaker to make tea leaves an unpleasant taste and is one of my hotel pet peeves.

Services/Amenities: WiFi is complimentary at the executive level. The spacious executive lounge offers a nice selection of hot and cold dishes in the evening, cakes and sweets in the afternoon and a generous breakfast spread. Beverages and other snacks are available 24 hours a day. There are 10 state-of-the-art meeting rooms with ample natural light. The 24-hour fitness center — with steam and sauna — is shared with the Hilton Garden Inn, along with an elegant ballroom and private parking facility. Though I didn’t dine in the restaurants, international cuisine is available at two: Rise and The Fifth Lounge & Bar. Pastries and cakes are supplied to the hotel by world champion pastry chef Bernd Siefert.

The Experience: The service, from check-in to departure, was gracious and superbly efficient. Despite being located at the nexus of two of Germany’s busiest motorways, a major train and metro station, and busy runways, my room was serene and quiet. I was especially impressed with the help I received after asking if there was a railway ticket information kiosk nearby, as I needed to make some changes to my itinerary traveling on to Munich by train. A member of the desk staff immediately offered to escort me to the kiosk and dealt with the ticket changes on my behalf. I travel to Germany frequently and will definitely stay here on future trips.

Former 1940s-Era Italian Bank Transformed Into Rome EDITION Hotel

It is hard to resist the pleasures of Rome, a city filled with world-renowned paintings; sculptures; thousands of colorful cafés; and hundreds of ancient buildings still standing and often used as offices, homes and museums. Certainly, Rome is the cradle from which all that is best about Italy emerged. It is difficult to open a new hotel in Rome without connecting it to the city’s history, art and culinary tradition. When Rome EDITION opened last year, it was the perfect fit for a city that lives and breathes all things extraordinary.

Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs Review

It’s often declared Paris’ Left Bank, or La Rive Gauche, the local side of the Seine —  where bohemian and chic are used superfluously, albeit with some veracity. It only makes sense that travelers looking to stay on the Left Bank would seek as local an accommodation as possible — Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs is the new kid on the block and certainly delivers this with its design following the likes of a Parisian art collectors’ residence.
