Two hotels, the Hilton and the Hilton Garden Inn, opened at the same time yesterday (December 20, 2011) in THE SQUAIRE at Frankfurt Airport.
In the eastern part of the building there are 249 rooms and suites in the Frankfurt Airport Hilton, and the Frankfurt Airport Hilton Garden Inn has 334 rooms. Whereas the Hilton offers the well-known standard, the Hilton Garden Inn is tailored to the needs of business travellers.
Charles Muller, Cluster General Manager of both hotels, says: "We are very glad to be represented with two hotels in this extraordinary property. Location and access are what makes an attractive location in our eyes, and THE SQUAIRE offers both.
"To this is added the comprehensive infrastructure in the building from which our guests also benefit. And naturally the architecture, which is an absolute highlight not only at the airport."
IVG Immobilien AG also takes a positive view as building owner: "The opening of the hotels is a crowning conclusion for our opening year 2011," says IVG Managing Director Dr. Wolfgang Schäfers.
"With the many office tenants who have moved in, the many catering establishments and businesses which have opened, we have taken a large step forward. Added to this is the new letting of over 32,000 m² in 2011, including to Deutsche Lufthansa AG. The idea of a NEW WORK CITY in THE SQUAIRE has already taken real shape today."
THE SQUAIRE is meanwhile around 82% let and in large part occupied. Deutsche Lufthansa will move into its 18,500 m² in the spring. For 2012 the goal is a letting status of 95%. The next large step in the coming year is the taking into service of the public car park THE SQUAIRE parking, which will make the building even more accessible with its 2,500 additional parking spaces.
