Comments  

Iconic, impressive and ideally situated just 15 minutes from downtown Frankfurt, the futuristic The Squaire building houses the Hilton Frankfurt Airport Hotel. Designed as a horizontal skyscraper, 660m long and up to 65m wide, The Squaire sets new standards in architecture and design. “Location, location, location” – Conrad Hilton‘s famous words truly apply to the Hilton Frankfurt Airport.

The award-winning hotel has an outstanding location at Frankfurt Airport, with a short pedestrian route to Terminal One. In addition, guests have direct motorway access and more than 185 high-speed trains with rail links across Europe leave from the Inter-City railway station underneath the building on a daily basis.

The internationally renowned interior design firm, JOI-Design from Hamburg, has mirrored The Squaire’s theme of mobility within the hotel, while also creating an oasis of tranquillity for guests seeking rest and relaxation after a long journey. Natural tones throughout the hotel provide a relaxing atmosphere in a comfortable environment. The golden ceilings above the reception and lobby bar combined with stunning design features throughout the Hilton hotel result in contemporary and stylish surroundings.

Rooms and suites
Designed with work and relaxation in mind, the 249 soundproof guest rooms and suites feature warm décor and top-quality furnishings. Amenities include high-speed wireless internet, a phone with voicemail, air conditioning, a flat-screen TV, UK and US power sockets at desk level, on-demand video, and a radio alarm clock with MP3 connection. Bathrooms are spacious and include a separate shower and bathtub.

The hotel’s 83 executive rooms and 17 comfortable suites offer even more space, upgraded amenities and access to the exclusive executive lounge. Enjoy continental breakfast in the morning or sit back with light snacks and a selection of refreshments throughout the day. In addition to the finest facilities and attentive service, it includes quiet lounge and business spaces, complimentary internet access as well as international magazines and newspapers to keep up with global news.

The 140sq m presidential suite at the Hilton Frankfurt Airport offers spectacular views over the city forest and the impressive skyline of Frankfurt. The fully soundproof suite provides an exciting impression of aeroplanes passing only 150m from the building. Guests refer to this as a “surreal and exceptional experience,” as one can only see the planes, not hear them. The presidential suite features a warm, natural colour scheme, visible throughout the hotel. With a conference and dining room, living room, bedroom and bathroom, the suite boasts four distinctive areas to relax and work in style.

Food for thought
Take off on a culinary journey of international cuisine and local delicacies. At the RISE Restaurant, modern décor mixes perfectly with a cosy and inviting atmosphere, making sure that you find all the ingredients to treat yourself to the gastronomic delights available. Bread is an essential part of the culture and cuisine in Germany. The concept of RISE has been built around the traditional importance of bread, making the restaurant the perfect place to discover and taste some of the finest varieties baked daily. Start the day with a sumptuous breakfast buffet, or try the culinary highlights of the à la carte lunch and dinner menu, all of which can be accompanied by a premium wine selection, featuring exquisite wines from all over the region.

The FIFTH, a lounge and bar in the light-flooded seven-storey atrium of the hotel is the ideal spot to meet clients for coffee or drinks, or to simply relax after an eventful day. Guests can enjoy a fine selection of pastries and cakes, exclusively crafted by world champion pastry chef Bernd Siefert.

The spacious 24-hour fitness centre offers guests all the elements of a balanced workout. The wellness area features services to help guests reduce stress in a calm setting. Enjoy the sauna and steam room to relax and refuel before your next flight.

Unique event venue
The hotel’s meeting and conference facilities include 11 contemporary function rooms, equipped with the latest business technology. With a 470sq m event space and a ceiling height of 6.3m, the spectacular Ballroom Globe offers the perfect setting for events with up to 570 guests. Conceived as a ‘building within a building’, the ballroom boasts eye-catching design features. The exterior is covered with thousands of mirror mosaic tiles, while inside small details such as hundreds of Swarovski crystals in the timber wall and ceiling allow any type of event to make a grand impression.

The adjoining panorama foyer with views over the city’s forest provides an excellent surrounding for coffee breaks, exhibitions and receptions. Hilton Frankfurt Airport is a distinctive venue for prestigious corporate events, gala dinners and product launches offering the possibility to display cars in the ballroom, lobby and foyer area.

Out and about
Frankfurt am Main, the dynamic financial and commercial metropolis of Europe, is well known as the centre for international banks and trade fairs. This is the image that many visitors associate with Frankfurt. However, there is much more to see and explore in the city with the most imposing skyline in Germany. The cosmopolitan city on the Main River and its surroundings are full of exciting contrasts. This is where urban excitement meets rural beauty.

Only 15 minutes away from downtown Frankfurt, Hilton Frankfurt Airport is the ideal starting point to explore the city or go for a shopping trip on the famous shopping mile Zeil, or the more exclusive Goethestrasse, dotted with the boutiques of international fashion designers.

Culture plays an important role in the city; at the museum embankment, numerous contemporary and historic museums are lined up along the Main River. Looking for an evening out? The Main metropolis offers many renowned stages, such as the Frankfurt opera house and the English Theatre. The Alte Oper with its world-renowned late-classical façade is an important concert and event venue far beyond the boundaries of Frankfurt.
For wine lovers, a visit to one of the many vineyards in the Rheingau region, home to Riesling wine, is a must. While in the area, pay a visit to the Eberbach Monastery, a former Cistercian abbey founded in 1135 and backdrop for the film The Name of the Rose, starring Sean Connery. In the nearby Taunus you can find the 2,000-year-old traces of a Roman settlement.

Admire the impressive Frankfurt skyline by helicopter or pay a visit to the alluring state capitals of Mainz and Wiesbaden, both of which look back on well over a thousand years of rich and intriguing history.
