The DEHOGA Hessen (German Hotel- and Catering Association) has confirmed it – the Kempinski Hotel Gravenbruch Frankfurt still belongs to the league of the best. In the future, the hotel may thus adorn with the title Five-Star-Superior-Hotel. The review by the DEHOGA is done by rotation every three years. It is the third time in a row that the Kempinski Hotel Gravenbruch Frankfurt got recertificated.
Last Monday, the 18th November 2013, it finally happened – the new brass plate was attached to the hotel entrance. For this, the general manager of the Kempinski Hotel Gravenbruch, Stefan Schwind, was supported by Konstanze Fritsch from the district Offenbach, by district administrator Oliver Quilling and by the mayor of Neu-Isenburg, Herbert Hunkel.
"We, the team of Kempinski Hotel Gravenbruch are very happy about the recertification of our hotel" says Stefand Schwind "All employees have constantly worked to preserve the high standard of services".
And yet another important refurbishment project has been completed: As of now, connoisseurs of fine tobaccos find a perfect spot in the new Smokers100 lounge at our hotel. In the ambiance of a traditional British club – deep armchairs and sofas upholstered in the finest leather, classic elegant design – they can enjoy cigars from all renowned production areas worldwide. Smokers100 offers a choice of more than 200 hand-rolled cigars, stored expertly in a huge humidor with a temperature of 20°C and humidity of 72 percent. To enhance the pleasure of smoking the lounge also serves drinks that complement the exquisite cigars: The extensive bar menu not only contains wines by the glass and cocktails but also a wide range of whiskeys and rums.
After a glass of sparkling wine and a warm welcome by general manager Stefan Schwind the two winners Sandra Foltyn and Dorothea Zimmermann as well as their families went on an exclusive tour through the hotel. Then, the lucky winners and their families relaxed to their hearts’ content in the brand-new suites and at our spa. After a restorative night in the comfortable new four-poster beds they enjoyed our sumptuous buffet breakfast before they headed home again, perfectly relaxed.
"Even as a teenager I was certain that I would eventually want to work in the hotel industry. Whenever I passed the monumental Hotel Atlantic in my hometown Hamburg I hoped that I would someday be able to work in this time-honored white "castle" on the banks of the Alster. After I finished my schooling in 1998 my childhood dream virtually came true when I got an apprenticeship training position at the Hotel Atlantic Kempinski.
Later on I moved from the Elbe to the Isar in Munich; and since January 2013 I have been living at the Main. As the Director of Sales here in Gravenbruch I am responsible for all sales activities of our property. The hotel's renovation is an exciting challenge: our capacity for events will double to a total of 1,800 square meters and we will get a second big ballroom – that is unique in the region."
Do women have different requirements for hotel rooms than men? They sure do! This is the result of a study by the Cologne International School of Design. While women mention about 30 different items they would like to find in their room for a perfect hotel experience – from attractive cosmetics and big mirrors to a sufficient number of clothes hangers – men have only three demands: WLAN, a good mattress and shaving foam.
Curtain up for the new deluxe rooms at the Kempinski Hotel Gravenbruch: We invited six readers of Mix am Mittwoch to exclusively put the new ambience to the test. What does it feel like to sleep in the new bed? How comfortable is the armchair? Is there sufficient space in the bathroom to store the various cosmetic paraphernalia that men and women tend to travel with?
An eventful year is drawing to a close. A time with many exiting experiences, great guests and one very special event: the successful start of our hotel's refurbishment. We have already spruced up big parts of the property; many more will follow up until 2014.
During the last days of the year we are all set to pamper our guests even more than usual and therefore offer exquisite menus and brunches over the holidays. On New Year's Eve our guest can, for example, enjoy an exclusive six course dinner and see the year out with a glass of champagne in an enchanting ambiance. On the first day of the New Year we will then serve a delicious New Year's breakfast until 2 p.m. so you can recharge your batteries sufficiently.
We did not only renovate and refurbish our premises; we also spruced up our technology. Our colleagues now work on new screens and faster computers, have state-of-the-art printers and use a more recent version of the Microsoft operating system.
The new collaboration with the ENTIRETEC promises quite a few advantages. The successful IT company takes care of the hotel's complete network infrastructure. WLAN continues to be on offer throughout the property but as of now, basic access to the internet is free of charge for our guests.
