Hilton Frankfurt City Centre by THDP

THDP have been shortlisted for Hotel Over 200 Rooms – Europe Award in The International Hotel and Property Awards 2021.

The Hotel is nestled in an amazing location in Frankfurt’s city centre and the Hilton open park benefits the hotel with beautiful views from guest rooms and the terrace.

The lobby, check-in and lobby bar have all undergone a combination of hard/soft refurbishment. Completed last in the overall refurbishment programme the existing layout could not change significantly but the look and feel needed to keep pace with new guest rooms and suites, which had already been mostly completed and had already received fabulous guest reviews.


The new Hudson Yards Bar, resembles a typical New York bar, with brass gantry shelving, custom counter lights, brass foot stops and front facing custom coloured Rancilio Barista Machine. The perfect place to kick back in the day or evening to enjoy a beverage, snack or dine in style. The overall style has a sense of heritage, with a focus on natural leathers, elegant veneers, Verde Alpi Marble, and brass.

The 328 guest rooms of both Standard & Executive category as well as the 14 suites were all given a full refurbishment, the last phase completed in 2020. The new rooms are distinct by their soft rich colours featuring warm rich oak timber flooring, rich rugs creating an inviting atmosphere, imbuing a familiar feeling of being at home but with smart and business touches suitable to its city location.


A special feature of the guest rooms is the new headboard which is unique and asymmetrical, its design plays with the eclectic nature of the room. The concept was to express the idea of an interior design which has evolved over time, as if different furnishings were purchased at different times, and different places rather than the whole being designed all at one time.

The guest rooms have a particular focus on the hotels surrounding area, with window seats being an early choice by the designer to allow guests to sit and enjoy the fantastic ‘Mini Manhattan’ skyline view.


The soft furnishings of the room are modern yet derive their design cues from an urban point of view, looking more like found objects or furnishings that have been re-purposed. Material choices are warm, rich and express a sense of luxury–with oak-wood flooring, walnut furnishings, manmade green marble and faux leathers and wool felts and area rugs.
