For some people it's slippers; for others it's a kettle or a great hairdryer. We all have our little triggers that endear us to a certain hotel room; mine is a bath tub and a kettle. Yes I like a cuppa (made with my own tea bag) whilst I'm having a soak!
So recently whilst staying in a couple of airport hotels in Germany I got to wondering what would be the priorities for a hotel room in an airport hotel.
Obviously number one has got to be the proximity and convenience of the hotel to the airport. That's the whole point.
This is a hard one but can be achieved, as I discovered.
After being on a plane for an extended period a great comfy bed is a must
TEA/COFFEE IN ROOM
In this day and age I need a USB port for charging my phone and multiple plug sockets so I can use my own appliances. This really makes a difference. Trying to wearily explain to the hotel porter at 2am that you need an adaptor for an Australian plug not an Austrian one is painful.
Of course FREE wifi should be included.
So how did the two Starwood properties stack up against this criteria?
Sheraton Hotel Frankfurt Airport
One night here and this hotel scores highly.
My overnight experience here was excellent and I can definitely recommend a stay here to rejuvenate and refresh if you're travelling this way.
Element Frankfurt Airport
A Starwood "Westin" hotel.
In complete contrast to the Sheraton this one year old property is a cool fresh and funky boutique style property that also delivers when it comes to the requisite criteria.
