Hotel for overnight in Frankfurt, help

I thought maybe the folks that visit this sub forum might be able to help me. I fly into and out of FRA very often but have never had to over night there. This time I will. I arrive from Vienna at around 21:00 on Feb 10th. My flight to Denver is not until around 13:00 the next day. What is my best option for easy transport out of the airport to a hotel not very far away? Also what hotel should I book? I would rather make a reservation now so I don't get stuck. Price is not much of an issue. 200 Euro max maybe? I have never stayed in Germany since 1996, so have no idea what prices for hotels are like now.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Ben

The Sheraton at the airport seems a good choice,
especially if you have 200 euros to spend.

The new Hilton Frankfurt airport and the Hilton Garden Inn would be an excellent choices for you. I tried the new Hilton at the airport couple of times and I was very pleased with my experience.

Are either of those on airport (ie: walk to / in terminal like the Sheraton) or does one have to use a shuttle ?

Welcome to Germany then

Hiltons are within walking distance I believe or comp shuttle. But its out of my league. Last time I tried

www.nh-hotels.de

next to FRA, both can be reached by complimentary shuttle (5-10 min drve). You'll get the shuttle at T1 exit A, Arrival level, go outside and there or to the left (as if you would go to the FCT) there is the bus shuttle stop.

NH Frankfurt Airport
Hotel in Frankfurt, 4 stars
Mörfelder Strasse 113. D-65451 Kelsterbach. Frankfurt (Germany)
Tel. +49.6107.9380 | Fax: +49.6107.938100 | Email: nhfrankfurtairport@nh-hotels.com
> around €140

NH Frankfurt Rhein-Main

Thanks for all the great hotel ideas guys and or gals! I Tried the Hiltons first and they were both booked up for the night I needed. I ended up booking 1 night at the Sheraton. Queen Bed, Breakfast, and Wifi package for 332$ Euro. If it werent for a company expense account I would have booked those NH hotels that were reccomended. (more my price range) Thanks gain all!

The former Queen's hotel, now the Holiday Inn FRA North isn't too bad.
It has a shuttle which will take you to/from the hotel in about 10 mins.
Alternatively, take the S-bahn (subway) to downtown FRA.
I usually stay at the LeMeridien which is 2 mins from the main station and thus 20 mins from the airport by train.

They are attached to the terminal A on the same level as the sheraton but with an extra two minutes of walking. You don't need any shuttle to get there.

Holiday Inn Express is currently on point break special. Its only 5000 Priority Club points for a night which i think is amazing value. Has a shuttle for 5 euro roundtrip. Will be staying there in 2 weeks.

I guess it's a done deal now, but as a general remark, that time window and budget would also allow one to stay in Frankfurt proper if so inclined. By hub standards, the airport is close and well connected to the city.

I am sure the Sheraton will drop their prices soon especially after the opening of the Hilton and Garden Inn within the same premises

The Sheraton on a Cash and Points (4000 SPG points + $60 USD) is my go to hotel for FRA layovers with early morning departure.

The Hilton Garden Inn is excellent and priced reasonably compared to the Hilton and the old and worn Sheraton. All three are inside the terminal building and don't require a shuttle or taxi like all the other hotels mentioned here.
