Frankfurt Hotel for Stop-Over

Last fall several of you helped me plan an overnight stopover in Frankfurt (enroute to South Africa), and my husband and I had a great time in Mainz and seeing some of the Rhine valley.

Now a friend is going to South Africa in early May, and she has a 16 hour stopover in Frankfurt. She would dearly love to get a nap before going on to South Africa since she doesn't sleep well on planes. I vaguely remember seeing something about a hotel near the Frankfurt airport that would allow someone to book a partial day or something for just this kind of situation. Can anyone help me find this information for her? She would want to use a taxi or hotel shuttle rather than dealing with the train.

Hope you can help. Thanks!

Check the Sheraton Airport Hotel at Frankfurt. She will be able to walk to the hotel and not leave the airport grounds. It may have the day room she is looking for.

Thanks for the input. A reviewer on Expedia mentions that a day stay is an option at the Sheraton but I don't see anything about it on the Sheraton website. Have just sent off an email inquiry to them.

Thanks again.

I don't think there is a hotel at the airport that you can book for a day. There are a few hotels near the airport that she could book for less than $100 (The Sheraton is pretty expensive - but convenient.)

One time I stayed in a Courtyard that offered a shuttle to/from the airport that was handy.

(Some people find an out-of-the-way spot at the airport and sleep.)

Since she is traveling by herself and counting the weeks or months to retirement, I don't think she would opt for sleeping in an out of the way spot at the airport but I will keep looking into options for her.

Thanks!
