“Frankfurt (FRA) airport Hilton versus Hilton Garden Inn”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

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.

On a 3 day business trip to Frankfurt, and accompanied by my wife, I was a little reluctant when my client, who was paying, offered up this property. It's part of the massive 'city' that is Frankfurt Main... But we needn't have worried. Convenient, with good supermarkets and coffee shops within a two minute indoor walk, it is also connected to public transport. The train takes 15 minutes to central Frankfurt and I was able to leave the hotel at a little after eight am and still make my 8.30 meeting times downtown. The rooms are clean and reasonably spacious. A great bed. All the amenities including Neutrogena room appointments and an empty minibar fridge for you to load up ith your own water and snacks. A good room safe and a great reception attitude. Michaela, at reception this morning, happily gave me a late check out of 2pm when I enquired about the possibility with a warm smile too! Book it. You won't be disappointed.

Stayed in this hotel for one night. Great value and was really pleasantly surprised. Service was of a high standard and rooms comfortable and spacious. New and very clean.

Upgraded as HH Diamond members. Breakfast was excellent with a good choice and omlettes and fried prepared fresh as ordered.

Great location within airport above train station and easily accessed on foot.

Small rooms on top floor. Ventilation loud. Nice and clean and one of the better workout rooms you can find at a hotel. Long walk from terminal to hotel, it is situated at the end of the railway station. Expensive breakfast, 21 Euro. Buy your morning meal at the train station instead.

We had a lovely stay at the Hilton Garden Inn-Frankfurt Airport. We arrived at Terminal 1 and initially, followed the signs for the Regional Trains, then we eventually saw signs for 'hotels'. The walk took approx. 10-15 minutes. We arrived at check-in and the English speaking receptionist was very pleasant. Although it was only 10:30 in the morning, a room was available, which we happily accepted. We put down our bags and headed out to see Frankfurt, with some guidance from the from desk staff. Once in the train station, we had some difficulty understanding how to use the ticket machines. So we decided to wait in line at the information center. We were quickly issue a group travel pass for a little over 14 euros. We took the S9 from track 1. Five stops later we arrived at Hauptwache station. This was a great location to begin our walking tour. Returning was just as easy. The hotel is located in The SQUAIRE and the location is absolutely beautiful. There is a grocery store, several restaurants, and even a Starbucks!!! Our room was so beautiful and clean with FREE wireless internet!! The bathroom was very nicely appointed. Ice machine was by the elevator. We had a king size bed that was so comfy! There were a few English speaking TV channels including CNN. We so enjoyed our stay! Thank you so very much!!! We know where to stay on our next trip to Frankfurt...The Hilton Garden Inn @ Frankfurt Airport.

I stayed one night in this hotel prior to my flight home to Canada. Great location as it is within walking distance to Terminal 1 and above the train station for long distance trains. Quiet rooms, modern and efficent. Dining opportunities inside the hotel and within The Squaire complex are diverse and abundant. The morning breakfast buffet was well laid out and enjoyable. I look forward to staying at this hotel the next time I am in Frankfurt, hopefully more then 1 night.

Room Tip: 11th foor room gives you a panoramic view of the airport

Friendly, efficient greeting. New decor and design. Quiet, efficient rooms. Nice touches, like built-in plugs for US and UK appliances. Clean bathroom with a lovely deep bath. All the basics extremely well done.

Then another surprise - the "bar and restaurant" at first glance looked rather like a motorway service cafe. However, although the menu was small, the food was really excellent. I had schnitzel and was genuinely surprised by how fresh and nicely presented the food was. The service was also very pleasant and seemed genuinely friendly.

Overall - given it was less than half the price of the rate quoted for the "full" Hilton next door and it was still not what you would call cheap - I'd stay here again without question rather than go "next door". Plus, it is ten minutes walk from the terminal, which is very pleasant whichever way you are travelling.
