Taj Frankfurt: IHCL in continental Europe: Frankfurt to get a Taj in 2025

NEW DELHI: Taj parent Indian Hotels Company (IHCL) will soon be present in continental Europe with the signing of Taj Hotel Hessischer Hof at Frankfurt in Germany. After extensive renovations this property will join the list of Taj hotels around the world in 2025 under an operating lease arrangement.
IHCL MD & CEO Puneet Chhatwal said: “This is a milestone in IHCL’s journey as we expand our footprint in key international gateway cities. Frankfurt, a vibrant metropolis is one of Europe’s most dynamic destinations. We are very proud to gain a foothold in such an iconic structure and to be able to reopen it with new splendour will now bring the quintessential Taj hospitality to Frankfurt. We are delighted to partner with Peakside for this venture.”
The hotel was built in 1952 on a former city palace site, owned and operated by the Prince of Hessia as a member of The Leading Hotels of the World. The 134-room Taj Hotel Hessischer Hof is centrally located in proximity to the Frankfurt trade fair grounds.
“Frankfurt is a major international crossroads where we will set new standards for luxury hotels while also achieving a milestone as the first Taj hotel in continental Europe. We are confident that our new concept will offer exactly what German and international travellers are looking for as they come to Frankfurt,” Boris Schran, managing partner at Peakside, said.
“As part of extensive refurbishment, the new design will feature modern accents while at the same time preserving the architectural integrity of the historical structure. After London, Cape Town and Dubai, Bombay Brasserie, the restaurant famed for its eclectic Bombay and Indian cuisine, will enter Frankfurt. The Chambers, India’s first exclusive business club, will have a new outpost at Taj Hotel Hessischer Hof,” IHCL said in a statement.
“Right from the start, the most renowned hotel operators showed strong interest in the Hessischer Hof. A key reason for the choice of IHCL was their many years of demonstrable experience as an excellent operator of luxury hotels. Through our joint plans, we will build upon this hotel’s rich legacy under the new brand,” Simon Lutz, partner at Peakside, said.
