Inside the Largest Hotel Suite in Germany
Above the staircase where President Kennedy once stood during his famous visit to Germany to give his "Ich bin ein Berliner" speech, now sits the country's largest hotel suite. Villa Kennedy's Speyer Suite measures an impressive 3,509 square feet, has three bedrooms, a chef's kitchen with Gaggenau appliances, and completely bulletproof windows.
Chances are, since the Villa Kennedy (of the Rocco Forte Collection of hotels) is the best show in town when it comes to 5-star hotels in Frankfurt, that when the big celebrities and politicians are in town, they stay in this suite. It also helps that it's got a private elevator, panic buttons in the rooms (just in case), a massive entrance hall, and an impressive dining room inside one of the Villa's turrets, that lends itself well to interviews and photoshoots.
No, we didn't stay here, but just had a drool-tastic look around.
So how many Euros will it take to call the Speyer Suite home for just a single night? Four nice, round numbers: 8,000 Euros. For that, you better get some free perks too, right? Right! Staying in any suite at the Villa Kennedy (the cheapest is a Junior Suite at 683 Euro per night), includes free internet access, an unpacking and re-packing service, the breakfast buffet, use of a mobile phone for local calls, in-room premium movies, in-suite check-in, a pillow menu, DVD player and list of available titles, and the possibility of interconnecting rooms (in case you've got the kids or personal assistant in tow).
Regular, non-suite rooms at Frankfurt's Villa Kennedy can be had for a more bottom line-friendly rate of 495 Euro per night. For a look at these rooms and their palatial terraces and Haribo-laced minibars, check back here tomorrow!
