Hyatt Hotels has announced that a Hyatt affiliate has signed an agreement with SIC Hospitality GmbH for Kennedy 89, a luxury hotel currently under development. Set to open later this year as part of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt, the hotel will mark the brand’s first hotel in Frankfurt.
Kennedy 89 will be set in Frankfurt’s Sachsenhausen district, neighboring consulates and 19th-century residential buildings; it will be within walking distance to the city’s historical center. The hotel name is inspired by its location on Kennedy Allee, a street name paying homage to the legacy of John F. Kennedy, the 35th president of the U.S., and his well-documented stay in Frankfurt in 1963.
The property is located at the intersection of Kennedy Allee and Stresemann Allee, less than five minutes from the banks of the Main River, besides a multitude of museums and exhibitions. It is just a 10-minute drive from Frankfurt International Airport, the city’s main station as well as Deutsche Bank Park stadium and the Frankfurt trade fairgrounds.
The hotel’s geometric design and cubic-inspired approach will be complemented by interiors designed by Studio Lux Berlín, which are a nod to the design style of the 1960s. All 181 guestrooms, including 68 suites, will have private balconies. The rooms will also offer integrated kitchenettes, introducing added comfort for extended stays.
The hotel will additionally have a ground-floor restaurant with street-level entrances and outdoor seating, as well as standalone bars on the first floor and the rooftop, the latter offering skyline views. The event space will host the property’s lounge with its bar, lit by floor-to-ceiling windows and surrounded by nearly 1,400 square feet of banqueting space with meeting rooms for gatherings and bespoke experiences. Other facilities include a gym and underground parking.
Kennedy 89 will mark the second Hyatt-branded hotel in Frankfurt, joining Hyatt Place Frankfurt Airport. The hotel will also mark the second hotel in Germany under The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand, joining The Wellem in Dusseldorf.
