This hotel is perfectly fine as hotels go, it's nothing nice but it's not bad, it's in a depressing and depressed part of town with NOTHING near by as far as nightlife. If you were say doing business near by, jackpot this is a great hotel for you.
HOWEVER: if you are in Frankfurt to attend a convention as I was, be forewarned the Shearton Congress hotel is NOT....NOT a quick nor short trip there. I would never stay at this hotel again whilst attending a convention at the messe. While its true that there is a tram station right out front, that is misleading. The trip takes at least 20/25 minutes with good train times and a little luck. A sample journey is as follows:
Tram Station at Hotel --> Metro Platform (1 stop); Metro Station --> Main Train Station (1-2 Stops); At main station change to the S-Bahn to Messe, 2 Stops. Then in the evening you do that in reverse. If you wanted to go back to city center to eat you'd then repeat everything up to Main Station.
SOMETIMES, you might get lucky and the train from the 1st metro station after the tram will go directly to the Messe....not likely though.
I gave myself 45 minutes travel time. The hotels advertisement led me to believe it was comvieniently located. It's not, it no where the city center or any places to eat or bars.
With that said though, the staff was quite lovely. The room is pretty standard with lower than standard shower water pressure (even by European standards). My shower had a problem of changing from ice cold water to scalding water randomly. I complained the first day i was there and when I checked out 6 days later I'd enjoyed scalding hot water in my face for 6 days.
The lobby is fun and very nice and has great computers in the business center and a printer that SPG Guests use free of charge. I'd again like to mention that the lobby staff of the hotel (actually it was only the Female staff members I found) were kind, gracious and a credit to Starwood hotels!
