Frankfurt and Dubai, 1 August 2011 – Jumeirah Group, the Dubai based luxury hospitality company and a member of Dubai Holding, is opening its first hotel in continental Europe. The team at Jumeirah Frankfurt welcomes its first guests today, August 1, while the Grand Opening celebrations are scheduled for September.
The five-star-hotel is located in the centre of Frankfurt at the Thurn-und-Taxis square, in close vicinity to the business district, opera and shopping streets. Spread over 25 floors and enjoying stunning views over the city, the 218 rooms and suites have a minimum size of 35m², making them the largest rooms in Frankfurt. Each room features an original artwork by German contemporary artist Hartwig Ebersbach. The hotel’s signature restaurant, Max on One, is managed by Executive Chef Martin Steiner, previously of the Savoy Hotel in London and Hotel Adlon in Berlin. The lobby bar stands near the chocolaterie on the ground floor which offers the finest French patisseries and specialist chocolate confections. With its state-of-the-art equipment, Jumeirah Frankfurt brings in-room technology to the next level. Instead of the conventional air-conditioning technology, the hotel features a hybrid room tempering system using body heat detectors and motion sensors that regulate all in-room energy consumption efficiently and sustainably.
With its abundance of natural daylight, spacious meeting rooms and state-of-the-art facilities, Jumeirah Frankfurt is also ideal for meeting and event organisers. The 364m² ballroom can be divided into two smaller areas and offer stunning views of the Thurn-und-Taxis Palais. For functions and banquets, four meeting rooms accommodating between 30 and 100 persons are available. Guests of Jumeirah Frankfurt also have access to Jumeirah’s signature spa, Talise. Stand-alone bathtubs, tropical rain showers and zen-inspired relaxation areas add an Asian touch to the spa.
