I wanted a more central location but this hotel was the only one I could find that could confirm at booking time that I would get a smoking room (though the smoking preference may not be confirmed if you choose the lowest rate, see their website). Several hotels in Frankfurt have smoking rooms, but they are subject to availability on arrival, and are not guaranteed.
The smoking rooms are located on the 15th floor, so the view was nice. I got a corner room with a very nice view, despite being a little small. It was a standard room. Business rooms may be slightly larger but they are located on the sides of the building, so you won't get a corner room if you choose this kind of room.
A tall building is being built next to the hotel, so the view and privacy of some rooms are going to be a little worse soon.
The rooms are overpriced during busy periods, but at other times they are quite affordable. The room was clean. The closet space is ridiculously small. The air conditioning was OK, though maybe a little weak even when set at maximum.
The buffet breakfast is expensive (28 euros) but has plenty of choice. Unfortunately, the quality of most items (bread, meat, fruit juice) is poor.
The room service at night offers very little choice. There are no desserts. The club sandwich was good, but the lasagna seemed to be very cheap industrial frozen food.
The only really unpleasant thing during my stay was the water temperature in the shower. The temperature changes abruptly every 10 seconds or so, no matter how you set it. The water can suddenly become burning or freezing. A shower is supposed to be a relaxing moment, but it is certainly not the case in this hotel. There are old reviews on TripAdvisor about this problem, so I guess it will never be fixed. There is probably a design flaw in the hotel that is too costly to fix.
