My wife and I just concluded a trip to Germany. On the final two nights of our trip, we stayed at Roomers Frankfurt — for free. A few years ago, we had two rooms booked at Roomers Baden-Baden, but they rebooked us in another hotel due to a wedding being hosted at Roomers. We made out like bandits because they put us up instead at the incredible Brenners Park Hotel & Spa, plus they offered us two future nights for free at either Roomers Baden-Baden or Roomers Frankfurt. Time ran out on those free nights during the pandemic, but Roomers was gracious enough to allow us to use them anyway. I’d have preferred to stay in Baden-Baden, but this trip didn’t bring us there. Since we were flying home from Frankfurt, Roomers Frankfurt worked out well.
Roomers Frankfurt Bottom Line
Roomers Frankfurt is a terrific hotel. It’s in a great location close to Frankfurt’s central station (Hauptbahnhof, or Hbf for short) and the river Main (you can easily walk along the river to many city attractions). The hotel itself is gorgeous and the staff were friendly and attentive. Breakfast (included free for Marriott Platinum Elites and above) was terrific. And the spa was amazing. Some online reviewers complain about loud music, but that wasn’t an issue during our Monday & Tuesday night stays.
- Points Price: Varies, usually from 35K to 40K per night.
- Cash Price: Varies. During the dates of our stay, Superior rooms (which is the room type bookable with points) listed for $286 per night before taxes. We were put into a Deluxe Room which listed for $388 per night before taxes.
- Points Value: Average. Points value can be very good on nights when the hotel is priced much higher.
- Resort Fee: None.
- Parking: 35 EUR daily
- Turndown service: None
- Housekeeping: Daily
- Internet: Excellent
- Breakfast: Excellent. 39 Euros per person includes menu service plus an extensive buffet.
- Lunch / Dinner: We didn’t try it. A reader volunteered that it was good.
- Spa: Extraordinary. The top floor of the hotel is dedicated to the spa and fitness area. Access to the spa is free for guests and it includes standards like a sauna, steam room, relaxation areas, and a hot tub. It also includes some more unusual things like heated glass chip beds (I tried everything else at the spa, but I couldn’t figure out what to do with these) and Medyjet massage beds (see pictures and descriptions near the end of the post). I believe that they also offer massage therapist services, but I didn’t try these.
- Fitness Room: Small, but functional.
- Marriott Bonvoy Elite Benefits:
- Suite Upgrade: Due to the unusual way in which I booked this hotel, my status wasn’t recognized until check-in and we were not upgraded to a suite (that said, the Deluxe room they booked for us was great). I don’t know whether this hotel accepts Suite Night Awards.
- Club Lounge: None
- Free Breakfast: Yes. Thanks to my Titanium status, breakfast was free. I expect that the same would be true for those with Platinum status.
- 4PM Late Checkout: I didn’t need or ask for late checkout on this stay.
- Would I stay again? If I had reason to be in Frankfurt, then yes, definitely. However, in my opinion, there are so many more interesting cities to visit in Germany, I don’t think it’s likely that I’ll return. if I was just looking for an airport hotel, there are good options directly attached to Frankfurt’s airport.
