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
Sweet and sour sensation: excellent staff and customer service, especially by Mr Lukas Larbig. But on check-out they claimed some minibar juices I did not drink! They should pay more attention as it is a little bit embarassing when they say you had something from the minibar you didn't. Then the entire hotel needs a refurbishment NOW. The room (I was upgraded) was very old, the bathroom very small and the carpet had "history". Tidying up is not cleaning: the room had some dust and the bathroom was not cleaned behind the door.
Concierge staff: 100% professional
This is the best hotel for business in Frankfurt. Having stayed in many other hotels in the Hesse region it surpasses the newer design hotels, and I much prefer this address to other chain hotels in the city. Highly recommend
We ended up in InterContinental after a delay with our flight meant we missed our onward connection. With an unexpected 24 hours in Frankfurt the airline booked us into this hotel. The staff on reception kindly loaned us adapters to be able to charge devices, and gave us a map and suggestions for places to go to spend our day. The breakfast buffet selection was vast and the quality excellent. It’s fairly central and close to the river.
A star lost as although the room was comfortable it was a little warm, and we were situated very close to the lifts and the noise carries.
Thank you, InterContinental, for making our unplanned detour much more bearable.
