The Jumeirah Frankfurt Hotel is located in a high-rise building built in 2009 with a height of 96 meters (315 feet) near the Hauptwache square. The building was originally built for office purposes and then converted into a hotel. This fact also explains why, for example, the entrance area is relatively cramped for a hotel and why the in-house restaurant is on the second floor and not in the head of the high-rise.
The Jumeirah tower is part of the Palaisquartier, which was built between 2004 and 2010 on Große Eschenheimer Strasse in the city center. Palaisquartier consists of four buildings: a scaled-down reconstruction of the baroque Palais Thurn und Taxis, the Hotel Jumeirah Frankfurt shown here, the 136-meter-high (446) Nextower, and the MyZeil shopping center.
The design for the Jumeirah Hotel comes from Frankfurt architects KSP Engel und Zimmermann Architekten (today KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten). The slightly inclined facades made of glass and aluminum panels give the Jumeirah Frankfurt Hotel a striking appearance. The lease agreement with the international hotel chain Jumeirah Group from Dubai was signed in April 2009. In August 2011 the Hotel Jumeirah Frankfurt was opened after an extensive interior work.
The luxury hotel with 217 rooms and suites is the first hotel of the Jumeirah Group in Germany and the third hotel in Europe after two hotels in London. The hotel has a 364 square meter ballroom on the third floor, a Talise Spa with separate saunas for men and women, a presidential suite and the modern grill room restaurant Max on One on the second floor. The Ember Bar & Lounge is located on the ground floor.
From the upper floors you have an unobstructed view of the high-rise skyline of the Financial District with its many skyscrapers. From here you also have a perfect view of the four new skyscrapers of FOUR Frankfurt, which will be built by 2024. The Jumeirah is one of the few high-rise hotels in the city center and the second highest pure hotel high-rise in Frankfurt after the Leonardo Royal.
