We love technology. Especially in the context of making our stays more comfortable. At the 218-room Jumeirah Frankfurt, for business and pleasure travelers, technology plays an important role in the guest experience.

While you are checking-in, your room is being acclimated to your preferences so that upon arriving at your door the in-room climate will be set at what Jumeirah refers to as "optimal heating or cooling." Before you get in the elevator, you must use the key touch pad to press in your room floor. The system will then direct you to a particular elevator to catch based on the "matched grouping" of other guests desiring the same floor or nearby floors.

Jumeirah says the elevator also limits the number of guests so the number of "stop-overs" is reduced. We didn't try it, but what about that kid who presses the buttons for all of the floors? If you try it, let us know how this works.

In-room you'll be able to use one central touch pad for lighting and climate control, open and close drapes, deactivate the doorbell and light the "Do Not Disturb" sign.

Here's where the high-tech gets more interesting if there are two of you: If one person leaves the room, heat detectors and motion sensors recognize that there is still another person in the room, all lighting and technical equipment will keep working. If the second person returns to the room while the other guest is asleep inside, only the down lighting will operate. As soon as the system senses that both of you have left the room, all tech settings are turned off and climate and energy consumption is reset to lowest setting.

The climate control here is worth mentioning too. Rather than a conventional A/C system, cooling and heating is via a "room tempering system" utilizing warm or cold water flowing through the ceiling.

Even if none of this techie stuff appeals to you, the central location of the hotel near the Messe Frankfurt Exhibition Center and a ride of 20 minutes to the Frankfurt International Airport or an easy walk to the Zeil shopping street makes this a very attractive place to sleep. Add a mosaic rain shower in the bathrooms, crisp and sophisticated décor, German Artist Hartwig Ebersbach's work in all rooms, a media hub in-room, free Wi-Fi, BOSE surround sound, full service spa and restaurants, a fully equipped 24- hour business center and advanced IT facilities and you have the perfect command center in Frankfurt.

The Jumeirah boasts the largest rooms in Frankfurt. A check of a Skyline Deluxe Room King category shows they are 36- 48 Sq. meters ( 388-517 Sq. Ft) with the best rate of 335 Euros per nite. The Business First package rate for this room is 385 Euros, includes breakfast, a pass to the fitness club nearby and they will press your shirt!
