FRANKFURT AIRPORT, GERMANY: Frankfurt is a typical business city – with a hotel providing business and pleasure next door to the airport. Hilton is convenient for a quick overnight stay – mostly because it’s directly connected to Terminal 1. From the lobby you can walk to the flight departure in 10 minutes. But for a slightly longer overnight it’s tough to beat a hotel in the city, which is just a 20 minute train ride from the airport. Hilton Frankfurt is more for business and a good night sleep, not so much for pleasure.
The five-star Hilton at Frankfurt Airport is located in the iconic ‘The Squaire’ building, situated directly above the InterCity Express railway station and only 15 minutes from downtown Frankfurt. The hotel has direct pedestrian access via skywalk to Terminal 1 at the international airport.
In addition a high speed train station for long-distance rail service. Restaurant with German delicacies and international food. Lounge and bar for a cocktail or meet with friends. Car parking with elevator from the lobby. WiFi and integrated US & UK power sockets. Small pets are welcome. Pavilion Mart next to the hotel with 24-hours service.
