This luxurious five-star villa hotel, which dates back to 1901, is located close to the south bank of the Main river. Extensive restorations have transformed Villa Kennedy into a refined haven of high-end luxury, complete with an award-winning restaurant and bar, comprehensive spa, and quintessential Rocco Forte service.Renamed in honour of President John F Kennedy’s 1963 visit to the city (large-scale photos of him and other American ‘celebrities’ can be found inside), the original villa’s three new wings are connected via a peaceful courtyard garden and surrounded by elegant colonnades. Interiors, by Swedish designer Martin Brudnizki, are an impressively tasteful blend of modern and classic.
Straight out of an Old World fairytale rises the castle-like facade of the Villa Kennedy, a Rocco Forte Hotel, bringing a touch of luxury and romance to the quaint historic area of Frankfurt am Main’s Kennedyallee.
Located in the leafy Sachsenhausen district, the 163-room Villa Kennedy redefines luxury lodgings in the age of the chic, small hotel. For starters, it gets service just right—staff are well drilled and well mannered, and rooms have a low-key but fun decor, with acid-green patterned pillows on neutral natural-fiber couches and chairs, along with beds with heavy linen sheets. The bar is one of the coolest avant or après addresses in town, and Gusto, the hotel’s restaurant, turns in a top-drawer performance on regional Italian cooking. The centerpiece of the superb spa is a 15-meter green-granite lap pool with a window wall overlooking a garden.
The 163 luxury rooms (including 36 suites) are thoroughly modern, yet exude an organic, personalized ambiance. The hotel sums up its use of neutral tones, timber floors, and glass paneling as “minimalist deluxe,” a subtle decision to appear homey and never Spartan or gaudy.
Villa Spa provides the perfect outlet to escape the pace of Frankfurt’s city life. Here, a team of qualified therapists provide a range of facial and body treatments at a four-level spa facility. Set across three floors, the spa has a 15-metre indoor pool, a hot tub, steam bath and sauna, as well as a fitness centre with Technogym equipment and a studio space for yoga and pilates classes. The spa’s eight treatment rooms include a room for couples and two rooms for facials, body treatments and pedicures. Events and conferences can be held in the ballroom, the foyer or one of several meeting rooms, and there’s an on-site business centre. Staff are well trained, attentive and helpful.
The award-winning Gusto restaurant with its innovative Italian menu is the perfect place to meet and unwind. The dishes, sophisticated in their simplicity, pair the freshest local ingredients with authentic Italian recipes.
