Quite a few times I’ve found myself sat waiting in Frankfurt Airport waiting for a connection. If you cannot access the business or first lounges there are a couple of Priority Pass lounges but these are a little bland. There is also the lesser known option, the Sheraton Frankfurt Airport Lounge.
This lounge can be accessed without booking an overnight staying for SPG Platinum members. The hotel is directly linked to the airport so there is no need of a shuttle transfer. The walk down from the main airport terminal to the Sheraton Frankfurt Airport hotel takes around 5 minutes. The lounge also provides complementary shower facilities, and a buffet food and drinks service for visiting SPG Platinum members.
The lounge is on the 9th floor of the hotel. To gain access first visit the reception and show your SPG Platinum card. As this is a hotel lounge there is no need to show any boarding cards. Not a lot of people know about this hidden perk so there is little chance that the lounge will be overrun, plus it is only open to Starwood loyalists who have the SPG Platinum status.
