For years, Villa Kennedy was one of Germany’s leading hotels and an internationally known symbol of luxury in the Main metropolis. Operations at Kennedyallee ended in March 2022. However, Althoff Hotels has a new vision for the property and will reposition it in the Althoff COLLECTION portfolio as an “Urban Retreat” once renovations are complete.
The history of Villa Kennedy dates back to 1901, when it was built as a stately home by Frankfurt architect Alfred Günther for the prestigious von Speyer banking family. After the house housed the “Max Planck Institute for Biophysics” from 1948, the property was privatized and converted into a hotel after it moved away in 2003.
Relaxed luxury in the new hotel of the Althoff Collection
The Althoff Collection’s new concept for Villa Kennedy calls for 147 rooms and suites, including twelve Signature Loft Suites and a 320-square-meter Presidential Suite. The focus is on a relaxed and luxurious stay for guests seeking an urban retreat. Details on the gastronomic outlet, spa, meeting facilities and new hotel name will be announced later this year.
Opening expected in fall 2024
Renovation work on the historic building is currently underway and is expected to be completed in the fall of 2024. The Althoff Collection plans to establish the hotel as a unique jewel in the Frankfurt hotel landscape and offer its guests an unforgettable experience.
For luxury guests, the Althoff Collection in Frankfurt will thus soon offer a new highlight: an exclusive and appealing urban retreat in a historic building with modern facilities and first-class service. We are excited about the new opening of the Althoff Collection in the former Villa Kennedy.
