I spent a weekend at the Sheraton airport hotel in Frankfurt recently. As a group of food & travel bloggers, we had the opportunity to sample some of the culinary creations from the hotel. With two restaurants, two bars and a café, the hotel offers guests (and people stranded at the airport) plenty of options.
The Club Lounge at the Frankfurt Sheraton hotel offers a complimentary buffet breakfast, afternoon hors d’oeuvres and cakes plus coffee and smoothies throughout the day. Access is complimentary for guests of the premium hotel rooms, or can be purchased by both guests and non-guests of the hotel on a daily basis. The afternoon hors d’oeuvres were particularly tasty—but it was hard to ignore the cakes, too. I especially liked the carrot cake (not pictured).
The Taverne Restaurant is located on the basement level of the hotel. It’s your typical German restaurant serving meat & potato type dishes, though with a bit of a gourmet twist. I sampled a risotto appetizer and an amazingly tender slice of steak. The dessert options were small and light—the perfect way to end a German dinner.
A new initiative by the Sheraton hotel group is called the Sheraton Social Hour. I spent about an hour-and-a-half at the hotel bar, Lemons & Limes, during the Frankfurt social hour. For just 6€ you could try two glasses of wine. The night I visited, the wine came from a local winery near Frankfurt. Check Twitter and Instagram for the #socialhour hashtag to see other people enjoying the daily event around the world!
During the Frankfurt social hour, there were also pretzels, German breads and a few other small snacks available.
