Stopover in style in Frankfurt with Villa Kennedy
Frankfurt, May 2013 – Thanks to Rocco Forte’s Villa Kennedy in Frankfurt lengthy transits on transcontinental trips needn’t be a drag. Savvy travellers wanting to make the most of their temporary touchdown in the German city will be able to escape the airport lounge and rejuvenate in style with the hotel’s new Luxury Layover package.
Located just a ten minute drive from the airport and benefitting from a 1,000 sqm spa, the hotel makes for the perfect choice to take refuge and re-energise for the second leg of the journey. For those with an extended stopover, a 30- minute anti jetlag massage is included in the package, an ideal way to unwind. Targeting those areas affected by sitting in one position for long periods of time, this treatment will soothe the body, while a good night’s sleep in one of the hotel’s luxurious rooms will leave guests re-invigorated, ready to head back to the airport the next morning. Complimentary transfers are also included, as are a guaranteed 10am early check in or a 4pm late check-out, taking into account those awkward flight times. Rates for the Luxury Layover Package start from €324 per night based on two people sharing a Deluxe King Room.
Those with a shorter transit times can take advantage of the hotel’s Layover Day Use package, which in addition to return transfers from and to the airport and the anti-jetlag massage includes a €30 voucher to be used for breakfast, lunch or dinner at Villa Kennedy’s GUSTO restaurant. The Day Layover Use Package costs €130 for one person or €200 for two people.
