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.
How to Get There
We stayed 5 nights and had a fine time. 1st night was tough because of construction. I spoke with guest relations and Sabine helped with a very nice upgrade that put us upstairs with a lovely river veiw. Excellent hearty breakfast buffet. Alejandro then assisted me with reservations for my return and provided excellent advise. I highly recommend this hotel and will stay here again.
After a long flight from Australia approx 24hrs we arrived at the Intercontinental (IC) Frankfurt early in the morning, the reception were very accommodating and provided us a temporary room so that we could have a shower and change our clothes which was fantastic!
We then could go up to the club floor and have some breakfast and refreshments which we did, so far so good!
We then went out sightseeing around Frankfurt and then came back to hotel in afternoon, so we thought we would check in upstairs as they had told us we could do that, there was no one around. So went back down to reception and got room key.
To me this was a minor inconvenience.
We went to evening canapés when we went to sit down we noticed that the tables were dirty and hadn’t been cleaned properly. After eating some Canapés I went to get a new plate lifted the first plate up to discover the plates where dirty (as per picture) it look this was a stack of dirty plates.
The next morning we thought we would go and have breakfast in the main restaurant instead of the club floor, when we turned up to the restaurant we were told that we have to pay extra for that! This seemed very strange to me as I’ve stayed many times at other InterContinental’s and as Club floor guest have the option at eating at either. I then went to reception desk to confirm if this was actually true or not and the receptionist advised yes you would need to pay extra!!
It seems to me that the club floor is an afterthought and the hotel just needs to have it to be an IC!
Management needs to put some focus into the club lounge. To ensure that dishes, tables are clean, and correctly staffed if they want this lounge to operate as a true club floor!
The Intercontinental Hotel is my favourite in Frankfurt. I love this hotel for the following reasons: location is perfect, very close to the train station but also to the downtown; although it is a big hotel, you can have a room at the higher floors, which offer a wonderful panorama of the City (I always prefer a view towards the skyscrapers). The rooms are very comfortable and elegant. Perfect sleep quality. Rooms are classy; every single detail shows that this is a luxury hotel. Bathrooms are a little bit small but very well equipped and with high-quality toiletteries. Breakfast is gorgeous, with a large variety of food and beverages. Above all, the level of service is the highest possible, you will feel welcome from your first step into the hotel lobby. Will definitely be back for my next trips to Frankfurt.
Nice hotel. 10 minutes walk from train station. Few restaurants in the neighborhood. Good breakfast with live station. Room and bathroom small and old but room has nice views of the river. Didn’t note a swimming pool in the hotel. Free WiFi. Friendly staff.
A pleasant hotel with an efficient friendly reception. Bar reasonably priced. Good walk to old town along the river. Does look like both interior and exterior are tired and need an upgrade. Ditto for bathroom with shower curtain in over tub set up. Spacious room however with a nice view over the river.
