Outing World Cup Hotels: Team Brazil
With the FIFA World Cup starting on June 9 we thought we would take a look at where some of the world's finest football players are being housed--starting with the 2002 champions, the Brazilians.
The Kempinski is on the outskirts of Frankfurt and has 45 short and mid-term residence options--perfect for the footballers. The hotel's main feature is the ASCARA Health & Beauty Center which provides "medical checkups, workshops, seminars, and individual health counselling" along with numerous beauty and health treatments.
Additionally, the water at the hotel might give the champions a leg up on the competition as:
It comes from the depths of the Taunus spring, clean and clear, supplying the entire hotel from its own source. Each tap provides our guests with precious water. Even the hotel pool is supplied with water from the spring.
When the team heads over to the Schlosshotel, they will continue their pampered accomodations as the place is a Relais & Chateaux hotel. Once a former country manor, the hotel motto is "Where Dreams Comes True" and is home to one of the country's most famous chefs, Dieter Müller. There's also a spa on hand as well so the footballers should not have to miss out on their weekly mani/pedis.
Update: Apparently, these hotels will get some heavy traffic after Team Brazil moves out as fans of star player Ronaldo bid close to a 1,000 francs to stay in his hotel rooms in the Swiss Alps after he checks-out.
