    I just stayed there on opening day. Usual rate Mon-Fri is 89-109 euro/night including a restaurant breakfast, AAA rates about 10 euro less. Friday-Sunday its 69-79 euro/night.

    Good quality hotel with a tapas restaurant that also serves the breakfast in the morning. Good plat recognition with upgrades into one of the 12 two room suites.

    Problematic: No free parking nearby and hotel parking charged at 25 euro/day. No free shuttle to the airport (but 4 public buses per hour from/to the airport at 1,60 euro per leg).

    I find it strange that this newly opened airport hotel doesn't offer an airport shuttle, plus parking is too expensive IMHO, seeing the location. Thanks for your review and pointing this out to us here on MP. Overall, despite some weaknesses, mainly due to the two points raised earlier, sounds like a solid hotel with good PLT recognition and some attractive overnight rates on offer.

    Thank you for the update! Good to hear that Elements has finally come to Germany, or is it even Europe in general? I am not sure how convenient the public buses are that you are mentioning. Are the bus stops right in front of Element Hotel and the FRA airport? Do the buses run from 5am till at least 11pm? If not how will Elements compare with the Sheraton and the 2 Hiltons that are connected? It would be good to get an official statement/reply from a spokesperson at the newly opened Element FRA.

    there are already several good choices, including SPG, at FRA; if one has to take public transport, might as well take the train into Frankfurt.
