Set on the banks of the River Main, with dazzling views of the Frankfurt skyline, this 500-room stay is an attractive choice for business travelers and sightseers alike. Dine out on chef Klaus Bramkamp’s farm-to-table cooking, which uses ingredients from the Hesse region, at the Signatures Veranda restaurant, which has a tranquil summer terrace overlooking the river. Or choose from more than 60 whiskeys at Daxx Mainhattan’s Bar, named for the German stock market index — a clue to what makes the pulse of this city race.
In the Area
Start your day with an invigorating jog on the running path that runs right outside the hotel along the Main River, then browse the Kleinmarkthalle, the famous food market, which offers a dazzling cornucopia of fruits, vegetables, cheeses and meats; the traditional German pastries alone are worth the trip. Or choose an entirely different perspective on the skyscraper-rich city that locals sometimes refer to as “Mainhattan” onboard a river cruise. Afterward, stroll the picturesque streets of Old Sachsenhausen, a district close to the hotel that’s all cobblestone lanes, antique fountains and charm-filled cafés and pubs. Stop in for an apple wine and a soft pretzel at one of the many äppelwoi pubs that line the streets.

We were only here for one night but even so we were very impressed by the staff. Everyone we spoke to was helpful, friendly and welcoming. The hotel itself was clean and cosy with a pleasant bar. We didn’t eat in the restaurant but it looked nice! We would definitely stay here again next time we are in Frankfurt.
Check in at Intercontinental Frankfurt was thorough and precise, there was a good welcome to the hotel and I was recognised as a Spire Ambassador member and a returning guest. I booked a 3 night stay through IHG website, the first night in a standard room and a panoramic suite for the last two nights. A nice surprise was that the first night was upgraded to a suite which meant use of the same room for 3 nights. There was no Lounge Access given for the 1st night but that was fine.
The suite was spacious and similar to other suites I have stayed in at the property previously, it was well appointed and there was a welcome bottle of red wine, sparkling water and a small fruit platter in the sitting room on arrival. There was a spectacular view from the suite of the Main River and the surrounding area.
The Club Lounge was excellent with a wide range of food and beverage options on offer all day starting with an extensive breakfast buffet and ending with a light dinner offering in the evening with many options available inbetween.
I left my tablet in the room on departure from the hotel and I only realised this when I was at the airport, I immediately contacted the hotel who said they would arrange for it to be mailed to UK. As I was due to be in Frankfurt a few days later I asked if I could collect it personally. All was handled very efficiently by email and I collected the tablet a few days later. The tablet had been thoughtfully packaged for me by the hotel.
A spectacular stay at Intercontinental Frankfurt, everything about the stay was perfect and could not be faulted in any way.
