The Frankfurter Hof is a hotel in Frankfurt am Main. It was built between 1872 and 1876 on the grounds of the former Weißer Hirsch by Karl Jonas Mylius and Alfred Friedrich Bluntschli and was one of the first addresses of Frankfurt’s gastronomy. First director was J. Fauchère-Shimon. The Frankfurter Hof is the flagship of the Deutsche Hospitality.

In 1940, Albert Steigenberger acquired the hotel. Only four years later, the house was destroyed by the aerial bombardments of the Second World War in the air raids on Frankfurt am Main. Already in 1948 the makeshift reopening took place with initially 20 beds. Five years later, the house was rebuilt in a simplified form – with a staggered floor instead of the original mansard roof.

The hotel now has 303 rooms, of which 261 are in the Deluxe and Superior category. There are also 42 suites. The furniture is based on different styles. There are 19 meeting and conference rooms with a capacity of up to 600 people. All rooms were completely renovated at the turn of the millennium in order to preserve the charm of the 19th century, while at the same time meeting most modern demands. In 2011/2012, another extensive renovation took place, in the course of which a just under 1000 m² large spa area was newly created.

The hotel building is located on Kaiserplatz in Frankfurt’s city center. It is a listed building. The hotel lobby, the three restaurants and the “Autorenbar” are also open to non-hotel guests.
