Grand Hyatt Hotel


Frankfurt am Main, Germany, 2009

The design for the Grand Hyatt tower highlights the cosmopolitan character and diversity of Frankfurt. With three different elevations linked to the different aspects of the city the tower takes up the variation and diversity offered by the city of Frankfurt and reflects that multiplicity of experiences back to the city itself. The tower can be perceived differently from various perspectives.
The new tower will house a 5-star-plus hotel with 405 rooms and suites, a ballroom, spa, various restaurants, a lobby bar and a public Sky Lounge on the top floor, and the possibility of an adjacent congress center. The hotel tower consists of 30 floors at a height of approximately 110 metres and an area of 54,562.70 m2 for hotel tower + plinth.
