I will be spending 5 days at the Marriott in Frankfurt beginning this Monday and was wondering if anyone has any comments about the property, its location and service. As a meeting manager thinking of organizing a meeting there but need more information about the hotel besides what I see on the web
Sorry, I missed your post earlier. I have stayed at the Frankfurt Downtown Marriott several times. Big plus is no need to rent a car - See train notes below. Big minus is no ironing board or iron allowed in rooms. Fire code, not Marriott's fault. You iron your shirts in a room across from the fitness center (which is great, but kinda small). If you like to run outside, rent a car & stay at the Courtyard-Messe. Wonderful park and canal to run around.
From the Flugehafen (airport), go to the basement. Buy the cheapest ticket (€ 3.80) for Code 50 - Frankfurt am Main. Take the train for Frankfurt Hbf (Hauptbahnhof - Main Train Station). Walk out the front door of the Hbf. Cross the street to the west bound trams. Take the #16 tram to the Ludwig-Erhard-Anlage stop. The front door for Marriott is just across the street.
