We spent a night celebratung NYE 2012 at the jumeirah. We had a junior suite with a skyline view and a special NYE dinner at the Max on One Restaurant.
The Hotel opened in 2011 so evrything as awesome new and fresh. I think the styling and design is close to perfect. It could be a bit more fancy but I think that is really a personal thing.
The junior suite is really nice, especially with the skyline view where you have a nice view at the frankfurt skyline. There are more impressive motives in the world but it's really not to bad.
The furtniture an equipment is state of the art.... big flat screen, bose sound system, iPod docking station (unfortinately iPhone didn't work). The Bed is a pure dream, it is huge and super comfortable. The Bathroom is close as big as the suite itself and is really a nice place to take a bath or long shower.
The Service is one of the week spots of the Jumeirah. To be fair it is on pretty good level but for such a Hotel which aims the top rank of luxury hotels in Frankfurt there are some ke elements missing.
One example was that I called the front desk as the bluetooth access din't work. I asked for some help or resulution which I never got. To be fair it was a smaller issue which wasn't important that night but that they don't get back to me was the bigger disappointment.
The bigger issue from my point of view is the service personell itself (excluding the restaurant) or better said the way the personell is trained to communicate with their guest. Sometimes you have the feeling that a robot is in front of you. I want authentice people and not somebody whos is talking to me as he is a bad actor who barly could memorize what he is saying that moment. I think this is an issue many Luxury Hotels are facing as they are afraid of leaving a bit individual space to their employees.
Dining and wining:
The Jumeirah is equipped with one bar, located at the lobby, located ground floor. The Bar itself is fine but not exceptionel but what crosses my mind when I see a hotel in a skyscraper with a bar at the ground floor. Why didn't you put it into a higher level with a nice view. MIght be the case that you don't want to attract an audience purely for the bar. But still... it wuld have been just to amazing to have a nice bar located in one of the higher levels.
The Max on One is a Business/fine dining restaurant which combines austrian with local frankfurt Kitchen and some international influences. The food was really good adn the service close to outstanding. The somelier is really a big assett. Broad and still deep knowledge about wines and food how you would expect it from somebody who get's payd to know what's good and what goeas along each other. I just have experiencd to many people declared as somlier but not worth this title.
I hope the title i've choose is now self explaining. If the hotel can develop a local character and escapes from just being a further chain hotel it will have a good time ahead. Anyhow I can recommend the hotel for all business traveler with close to no restraints (which would be the bar). As you have a couple nice bars close to the jumeirah you won't have any issues in spending so spare time in the evening with some entertainment.
