I seem to transit Frankfurt Airport quite a bit, and when I have a quick overnight my preference is to stay at the Sheraton Frankfurt Airport. It’s a great way to earn stay credits towards SPG status, the hotel is connected by a walkway to the airport terminal, and the club lounge is one of the better ones out there.
So on one hand my Frankfurt Airport overnight needs are more than taken care of. However, I also appreciate a good airside transit hotel. An airside transit hotel lets you get some rest without having to leave security or immigration, and there’s no denying that there’s something especially convenient about being able to head straight to your gate, rather than have to factor in security, etc.
For a while I’ve been hearing rumors about a transit hotel opening at Frankfurt Airport (I first heard about it in Daniel’s interview with Frankfurt Airport’s director of operations).
