Besides being known as Germany’s business center, Frankfurt also offers a charming city center rich in cultural and architectural landmarks. Visitors will find several hotels in this area that allow access to historic sights, shopping and restaurants. These hotels vary from well-established chains to family-owned independents with a historic flair. Most hotels in the city center also allow convenient access to Frankfurt's main train station.

Hotel Steigenberger Hof

The prestigious Hotel Steigenberger Frankfurter Hof is built in a 19th-century neoclassical building at the Kaiser Platz, one of the main squares in Frankfurt’s city center. Its historic facade opens to a luxurious interior with parquet and marble floors, stucco walls, chandeliers and large French cascade windows reminiscent of an old world’s classiness. The guest rooms feature an elegant contemporary design with luxury fabrics and first-class amenities. Mornings at the hotel start with an abundant breakfast buffet before guests stroll around Frankfurt’s city center or relax in the hotel’s spa and wellness area with sauna, steam bath and gym. Four restaurants, two bars and a terrace cafe serve French, Japanese and Mediterranean gourmet cuisine as well as traditional German pastries in sophisticated surroundings.

Le Meridien Parkhotel Frankfurt

Le Meridien Parkhotel Frankfurt welcomes guests to an Art Nouveau building with an attached modern glass wing near Frankfurt’s main train station. Marble floors, ceiling windows, mahogany furniture and illuminated lobby pillars introduce guests to the hotel’s stylish and prestigious interior design. It features 300 guest rooms and suites that are either decorated in a modern style with designer furniture and panorama windows in the modern wing or in an antique classic design in the original building. Hotel facilities include a spa area with massages, sauna and steam bath, fitness center and access to the Paragon Golf Club Frankfurt. A restaurant and bistro with summer garden serve international and regional cuisine, and the Casablanca Bar invites guests to cocktails and piano music in an interior reminiscent of the bar in the movie “Casablanca."

The Westin Grand Frankfurt

A homey yet elegant contemporary design welcomes guests of the Westin Grand Frankfurt hotel, situated in the heart of Frankfurt’s lively city center. The lobby features a large atrium with glass cupola, mahogany furniture and subtle light illuminations. The hotel’s 369 rooms and suites come decorated in an urban design with natural colors, designer furniture and marble baths. An on-site wellness area with indoor swimming pool, sauna and massage treatments encourages relaxation in a setting reminiscent of a Roman bath with marble pillars, ancient statues and sweeping panoramic views over Frankfurt’s downtown area. The hotel's dining-and-drinking scene offers a variety of possibilities, from a breakfast restaurant to sushi, Chinese and international gourmet cuisine, cigar lounge, pool bar and a glass cupola lounge in the lobby.

Hotel Concorde

The Hotel Concorde lies right across from the main train station. It extends to its guests a carefully designed interior with Art Deco-style elements such as chrome, inlaid wood and marble with geometric shapes. A special light system allows guests to choose how they want to illuminate their rooms and suites. Their interior features black ostrich leather furniture, large, panorama windows with white floating curtains, glass room dividers and zebra-design floor carpeting. The hotel serves a hearty breakfast with fresh fruits in the morning and small snacks and drinks in its bistro bar. A large variety of restaurants lie within a few steps from the hotel.
