Grandhotel Hessischer Hof is near many local attractions, including the Festhalle, Cape Europe, and the newly-opened Skyline Plaza, that houses over 170 shops and a 10,000 square meter roof garden, all just a few hundred meters away. Once inside the hotel, you'll notice upgrades galore, including hotel-wide renovations and a brand-new hotel gym. The location is closer to the Fairgrounds than Frankfurt's heart, so taxi rides will be in order to visit the city's most popular restaurants and sights.
Upgrades have turned the accommodations from antique to chic. The room and suite atmosphere is both tasteful and elegant, decorated in either art deco style or with antiques from the collection of the Counts and Princes of Hesse. They also invite hotel guests to join in a welcome cocktail hour, with drinks and snacks on the house. Jimmy's Bar, located inside the hotel, comes highly recommended, as well. Be sure to whet your whistle, as many other traveler's have.
Finest, a fitness center that's well-placed on the top of the hotel employs "specialized" staff that can help with your workout while on the road. If you're not in need of a personal trainer, there's still more than enough cardiovascular and resistance training equipment (by German-made Proxomed) to suit your needs. Finest was created in conjunction with a renowned German sports medicine clinic, so expect high-quality equipment and knowledgeable staff.
