I've stayed at the HGI and FRA Hilton. Both are brand new and in The Squaire--walking distance convenience to Terminal 1 arrivals, Lufthansa check in terminal, rental cars, and the DBahn regional train station. The facilities are side by side and share a common exercise area and kitchen area. In general, the HGI rooms are a little less expensive and slightly fewer amenities than the same size Hilton room. But HGI is quite nice as well and a more than adequate choice. Both offer breakfast in the restaurant (free for Gold/Diamond members--others depends on room offering). Both have free internet. The Hilton has suites and an executive lounge, and thus more upgrade opportunities for Gold/Diamond members. Hilton has a full bar area, whereas HGI has the self-service kiosk. Of interest, they share the same exercise facility, sauna/steam bath. The facility is on the 11th floor of the Hilton. If you are in HGI, you go to the 11th floor of their area and your room card allows you to pass through a series of doors into the Hilton area to reach the exercise area.
So overall if you just need the cheaper place to sleep that has great amenities, go with HGI, but if you will be there a while or with a larger group that would enjoy an upgraded room and use of exec lounge, then go with Hilton.
Note that in both hotels, despite being near a train station, over a highway, and by an airport, the hotel is perfectly sound insulated--I heard absolutely no noise.
