From Kempinski to Hilton: The Munich Airport Hotel

Non-smokers friendly

The Hilton Munich Airport (until 31 December 2014 Kempinski Hotel Airport Munich) is a hotel located on the grounds of Munich Airport, next to Terminal 2 and the Munich Airport Center business facility.

Following a construction period of 20 months, the hotel opened on 17 May 1994, two years after the airport went into operation. The architect of the hotel is German-born Helmut Jahn of the Chicago-based Murphy/Jahn Architectural Group. The hotel's grand plaza is a 24- metre high and 1400 square metre large atrium hall with a glass roof and decorated with palm trees (18 metres tall) from Florida. Green cubes and grown-over pyramid shapes continue the outer landscape surrounding the airport.

On 1 January 2015, the hotel has been taken over by Hilton Hotels & Resorts and will receive an extension building in the near future. While the existing building is used for the brand Hilton the extension will be a Hilton Garden Inn when completed.

I was there one month before renovation started. A god stay, a wide atrium, a relaxing room. Check out the photos.

Set between Munich Airport Terminals 1 and 2, this upscale hotel with a striking glass atrium is 12 km from Der Freisinger Dom, a romanesque basilica. The subdued soundproof rooms feature Wi-Fi (fee), flat-screen TVs, and tea and coffeemakers, as well as minibars.

Other perks include a gym, and a spa area and an indoor pool and a sauna. Massages are available. There’s also a 24/7 business center and 30 meeting rooms.
