In the heart of Frankfurt’s residential area of Sachsenhausen, Villa Kennedy stands as a haven of tranquility, expertly juxtaposing the area’s urban vibrancy. The property, situated away from the hustle and bustle, is an emblem of serenity, encapsulated within its own private domain. Accessibility remains a cornerstone, with the S-Bahn station a mere ten-minute journey on foot, connecting guests to the wider city with ease. Cultural attractions like the museum embankment are just a short stroll away, with the historic Römer accessible via a picturesque 25-minute walk by the river, immersing visitors in the city’s vibrant heartbeat.
The Villa Kennedy’s architecture and decor pay homage to its namesake, President John F. Kennedy, and his 1963 visit, capturing a slice of history within its walls. The 2018 refurbishments, overseen by Olga Polizzi, Rocco Forte’s Head Designer, infused contemporary touches while respecting the property’s classic foundation. The interiors, a seamless combination of old-world charm and modern flair, feature a careful selection of furnishings and artworks that encapsulate a refined yet approachable luxury. The colonnaded walkways and the lush courtyard garden serve as the backbone of the Villa’s layout, offering guests a stately yet serene environment.
Accommodations at Villa Kennedy are nothing short of luxurious. The rooms and suites manifest Martin Brudnizki’s vision of minimalistic luxury, with tasteful decor and Bavarian wood flooring setting the stage for a restful stay. The spaciousness of even the entry-level Deluxe King rooms is a testament to the hotel’s commitment to comfort and elegance. The marble bathrooms, complete with modern amenities, heated floors, and sleek design, add a touch of opulence to the living spaces.
The suites, recently redesigned, are a nod to the prominent women of the 1960s. Each suite, named after figures like Jackie O and Marilyn Monroe, is decked out in vibrant colors and patterns, ensuring each stay is as inspiring as it is comfortable. The terraces offer views of the serene garden or courtyard, reinforcing the Villa’s ethos of tranquility.
Gastronomy is central to the Villa Kennedy experience. The Gusto restaurant, under the leadership of Swiss chef de cuisine Caterina Vosti, showcases Italian gastronomy, from beloved classics to unique creations. The JFK Bar is the perfect companion, providing a sophisticated space for cocktails and premium beverages, enhanced by live music on select days.
The Villa Kennedy spa, an embodiment of wellness, spans four stories, with an array of facilities designed to soothe and invigorate. The indoor pool and the hot tub provide a sanctuary for relaxation, complemented by a steam bath, sauna, and a cutting-edge fitness center. Catering to a range of preferences, the spa includes a versatile studio for yoga and Pilates, with an extensive menu of treatments that promise rejuvenation and a holistic approach to health.
Events find their perfect setting in the elegantly appointed ballroom, various meeting rooms, or the welcoming foyer, all supported by a comprehensive business center with a legacy of unparalleled service and an immersive experience that has enchanted guests from around the world. The hotel icon will appear in new splendour from autumn 2024 as part of the Althoff Collection. This new chapter promises to honor the property’s storied past while charting a course for a new paradigm of luxury hospitality in Frankfurt.
