“With this great property, we celebrate the market entry of our collection of very exquisite, design-affine hotels within the BWH Hotel Group and WorldHotels brand family here in Germany: WorldHotels Crafted. We are very proud and happy to welcome the b’mine Frankfurt Airport with its exceptional concept and high-class facilities to our portfolio,” said Marcus Smola, CEO of BWH Hotel Group Central Europe GmbH headquartered in Eschborn.
The BWH Hotel Group is an international hotel group headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, and the parent organization for the three global brand families including WorldHotels™ Collection, Best Western Hotels & Resorts, and SureStay Hotel Group with a total of 19 individual brands which are jointly marketed internationally as individual hotels.
“The b’mine at Frankfurt International Airport provides a special experience when travelling – it combines architecture, design and innovation in a very unusual way and, with its special car lifts, offers technology that is so far unique in the world and that leaves guests in awe. At the same time, it conveys generosity, high quality and individuality, so it fits perfectly with the design-savvy collection of WorldHotels Crafted,” said Alexander Teichert, Director Hotel Development at BWH Hotel Group Central Europe GmbH. “We look forward to working with Matthias Beinlich and his team to raise the profile of this newest and very exceptional hotel in Frankfurt, both nationally and globally.”
b’mine Frankfurt Airport: Extraordinary on All Levels
With its patented carloft concept of car lifts and associated carloft rooms, the lifestyle hotel has an unusual offering and highlight that is visible from afar thanks to a lighting concept in different colours: elevators transport vehicles in front of the 40 carlofts from the first to the tenth floor, so that guests can spend the night right next to their own cars. The b’mine Frankfurt Airport, which has been nominated for the German Design Award 2020 and has just won the Arch Design Award 2022 in the Interior Design category, is located in the quarter of the so-called Gateway Gardens, about one kilometre from Frankfurt Airport.
It has 241 rooms, including 160 Smart Rooms, 40 Smart Doubles, 40 “CarLofts” distributed on the first to tenth floors, and a Skyloft on the top floor. All rooms impress with an interior design that conveys a special feel-good atmosphere by means of a well-thought-out cocooning concept. In collaboration with the Berlin artist Pola Braendle, a distinctive ambience has been created in all areas, from the foyer to the rooms as well as in the event area and right up to the restaurant: Collages and décollages by the internationally renowned artist are an integral part of the design of all b’mine hotels. Another highlight is the entire event area of b’mine Frankfurt Airport: The hotel has a total of eleven event rooms for up to 250 people, most of which are located on the eleventh floor of the building with optional views of the Frankfurt skyline or the airport’s runway. Outstanding is the extreme load capacity of four tons in the main event space, which for example allows events and presentations including cars and more kinds of vehicles.
