Design-led Meliá Frankfurt City opens in new skyscraper

by | 04 Jul 2021 | Hotel Openings, Projects

Spanish hospitality company Meliá Hotels International has debuted its fourth property in Frankfurt and its first in the city under the fast-growing Meliá Hotels & Resorts brand.

Designed to reflect the cosmopolitan lifestyle of the city, the 431-key design hotel takes up a significant section of Frankfurt’s One Forty West skyscraper.

A landmark building in Germany’s economic powerhouse

Meliá Frankfurt City is now hosting guests on levels one to 23 of the new One Forty West tower, which also houses luxury apartments, and rises 140 metres above the city’s Senckenberg Quartier between Westend and Bockenheim.

Cyrus Moser Architects designed this striking glass tower with balconies that create a unique silhouette on the city’s skyline. This new skyscraper takes up the site formerly occupied by the University of Frankfurt’s Afe Tower.

Kai Lamle, managing director in Central Europe & Middle East for Meliá Hotels International, said: “The opening of Meliá Frankfurt City is undoubtedly one of the most long-awaited projects in the city and one that promises to raise the bar for hotels in Frankfurt to the highest level. We’re really excited to bring our most internationally recognised brand to Frankfurt and in a hotel as iconic as this one, and we are totally convinced that it will be a great success.”

Elevating Frankfurt’s hospitality scene to the next level

Each of the hotel’s 431 rooms and suites come with floor-to-ceiling windows for optimum views over the city skyline and mountains beyond. Most rooms also feature a private balcony – and they all come with stylish, minimalist design and amenities including flat-screen TVs.

For the most exclusive experience, guests can stay on The Level, encompassing superior rooms, bespoke service and enhanced attention to detail, with private areas including a separate reception and lounge.

Guests can then dine at the 15th-floor Oben Restaurant & Skybar, which aims to become one of the city’s social hotspots with its panoramic views and a culinary offering focused on Mediterranean cuisine and cocktails. The international Neu-Frankfurt restaurant will open soon.

These venues are joined by a fitness and wellness space, as well as 1,400 sq m of adaptable meeting and event space. The hotel’s multifunctional meeting rooms come with high ceilings, natural light and state-of-the-art technology, and can be flexibly combined, while the Power Meetings by Meliá programme – which encourages the efficient use of low-impact resources – ensures functions can be run on a more sustainable basis.
