For the subsequent cease on the journey with my dad and mom, we spent two nights on the 130-room Roomers Baden-Baden, which belongs to Marriott Autograph Assortment. I used to be wanting ahead to this keep, particularly as many OMAAT readers raved about this property, with some saying it’s one of the best Bonvoy property in Germany.
All-in-all, we had an excellent keep at this lodge. Roomers had a enjoyable vibe, an excellent spa and health club, a tasty breakfast, and a lovely rooftop. The lodge can be very beneficiant with upgrades, which is fairly noteworthy these days.
We additionally all loved Baden-Baden and the encompassing space much more than we had been anticipating to. For these not acquainted, Baden-Baden is actually a spa city on the foothills of the Black Forest. Not solely did we discover the city of Baden-Baden to be cute, however we additionally beloved exploring the Black Forest. Given Baden-Baden’s proximity to Frankfurt, I’d extremely advocate trying out this property.
What’s the Roomers lodge model?
To begin, let me briefly cowl the fundamentals of Roomers. Roomers is a small German lodge group with three properties, in Baden-Baden, Frankfurt, and Munich.
Curiously the properties in Baden-Baden and Munich are branded as Marriott Autograph Assortment inns, whereas the property in Frankfurt belongs to Design Accommodations, which has a restricted partnership with Marriott. I’m curious what the logic is for that call. Presumably the corporate simply doesn’t want as a lot assist filling its Frankfurt property?
Roomers is a fairly cool lodge model, with a heavy deal with design. Roomers properties considerably have the vibe of W Accommodations, however are a lot much less annoying. They’re quirky, with nice meals and beverage shops.
Reserving Roomers Baden-Baden
I booked our rooms at Roomers Baden-Baden with money. The speed was roughly €200 per evening per room, which appeared cheap, given how a lot inns all over the place else are costing in the meanwhile. I booked our keep by the Marriott Luminous program, which affords free breakfast and room upgrades topic to availability (since technically my Marriott Bonvoy Titanium perks solely apply to 1 room).
As some extent of comparability, if redeeming factors, the lodge would have price 42,000 Bonvoy factors per evening. I worth Bonvoy factors at 0.7 cents every, which means an award keep would have price the equal of ~$294. So I paid money, as a result of I’d fairly redeem factors for probably increased worth redemptions.
Roomers Baden-Baden location & parking
Baden-Baden is situated a couple of 90-minute drive from Frankfurt Airport, so it’s fairly simply accessible. It’s also possible to take a prepare, and it simply takes slightly bit longer. We had been coming from the Marriott Heidelberg, and that drive took solely an hour, so it was a brief journey for us.
Whereas one of many nice issues about Europe is often how one can get round by prepare, I’d extremely advocate having a automobile in Baden-Baden. Our favourite a part of our go to was exploring the Black Forest, and all of the quaint cities situated round it. We couldn’t have completed this if we hadn’t rented a automobile.
The lodge affords parking for€36 per day, and the associated fee is similar whether or not you utilize valet or park your self. That’s on the steep aspect little doubt, however house comes at a premium in Baden-Baden. One factor that wasn’t nice is that there have been sometimes only one or two bellmen on responsibility who additionally doubled as valets, so at instances valet service wasn’t very immediate.
So far as Roomers’ location in Baden-Baden goes, the lodge is a roughly 10-minute stroll from the city’s important pedestrian zone, so it’s fairly straightforward to get round city by foot.
Roomers Baden-Baden foyer & check-in
I fell in love with the design of Roomers Baden-Baden as quickly as we walked into the foyer. To me, the design felt cool, quirky, and splendid.
Earlier than even getting into the lodge, I observed the lovable little Porsche “automobiles” for younger youngsters, plus jars of sweet that you possibly can assist your self to.
Upon getting into the foyer, reception was situated to the left, and consisted of particular person stations, so you possibly can sit down whereas checking in.
The foyer additionally had a lovely sitting space with every kind of seats, starting from comfy couches and chairs, to benches.
Behind that was a pool desk, which you don’t usually see in a lodge foyer.
Inside the doorway and to the correct was a protracted hallway resulting in the lodge’s important restaurant. This had much more seating, plus cuckoo clocks, that are standard within the Black Forest.
There was one more sitting space there, separated from the hallway by a really effectively stocked bookshelf.
The lodge additionally has a courtyard with a bunch of couches. This space appeared fairly underutilized to me, because it wasn’t a part of any bar, however fairly was simply someplace to relax. You’d assume that they’d flip this right into a bar space, or one thing.
Anyway, our check-in course of was environment friendly and pleasant. I had used a Marriott Bonvoy suite evening award to substantiate an improve to a one bed room deluxe suite, in order that we’d all have a spot we might hang around. I respect how this lodge permits suite evening awards for use to substantiate some fairly premium suites, fairly than simply probably the most fundamental ones.
We had been additionally suggested that our different two rooms had been upgraded to junior suites, on account of reserving by Marriott Luminous. OMAAT readers weren’t mendacity once they stated this lodge treats visitors effectively with upgrades!
Throughout check-in, we had been all additionally supplied welcome drinks, with the selection of sekt or beer. I believed that was a pleasant contact, and a very good begin to our keep.
Roomers Baden-Baden one bed room suite
With keys in hand, all of us headed as much as our rooms, situated on the second flooring (the lodge has 5 flooring, plus the rooftop).
I attempted to get my mother and her associate to remain within the one bed room suite, however she insisted that she didn’t need to, and that it will make her really feel responsible. So I ended up staying in it.
The one bed room suites at this property are 839 sq. ft (78 sq. meters), so that they’re very generously sized. Simply inside the doorway to the suite was the lounge, which was an excellent dimension. The lounge featured a sitting space with a sofa and two chairs, plus a eating desk with 4 chairs.
There was a minibar proper subsequent to the eating desk, with a Nespresso espresso machine, a kettle, and quite a lot of drinks and snacks for buy.
There was additionally a half lavatory proper off the lounge.
Then there was a door resulting in the bed room, which featured a really low king dimension mattress. I’ve gotta say, that is probably the most comfy mattress I’ve ever had in Germany, because it was very delicate (which is my choice).
The remainder of the bed room had robust W Accommodations vibes, with the tub in the course of the room, proper subsequent to an enormous TV.
I beloved all of the artwork on the wall, plus thecuckoo clock.
The principle lavatory was off the bed room, and was giant. It had double sinks, a rest room and bidet, and a walk-in bathe.
In Germany, I’m fairly used to showers not having nice water strain, usually justified on environmental grounds. OMG, I’ve by no means skilled something like this bathe earlier than. It’s not simply that the water strain was robust, nevertheless it was nearly like being energy washed. I additionally preferred how customizable the bathe was, as water might circulation in every kind of various methods.
Toiletries within the lavatory had been in reusable containers, and had been from Grown Alchemist.
So far as views go, the room confronted a close-by road. It was fairly with all of the bushes, however hardly probably the most memorable view.
We had been additionally introduced a welcome amenity in every of our rooms, which was a tasty chocolate nut cake.
Roomers Baden-Baden junior suite
Within the curiosity of being thorough, I figured I’d additionally report again on what the junior suites are like at Roomers Baden-Baden. These rooms are 538 sq. ft (50 sq. meters), so that they’re not precisely probably the most spacious junior suites on the market.
The junior suite had a king dimension mattress, and a sitting space by the window with a sofa and two chairs.
The toilet was spacious as effectively, and had double sinks, an enormous bathe and tub “compound,” after which a rest room.
In keeping with the W Accommodations vibe, the bathe was separated from the bed room by a glass defend. I’m unsure if there’s any approach so as to add privateness there, however I can’t say I’m an enormous fan of that design idea.
Roomers Baden-Baden Moriki Restaurant (breakfast & dinner)
Moriki Restaurant is the signature restaurant at Roomers Baden-Baden, and it’s situated simply off the foyer. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Breakfast consists of a buffet, whereas for lunch and dinner it turns into an Asian fusion restaurant (with a deal with sushi), and appears to even be fairly standard with non-hotel visitors.
The restaurant is a beautiful house, with the indoor seating primarily being in an “L” form.
There’s additionally a coated out of doors terrace the place you possibly can get pleasure from a meal in summer season, climate allowing.
Breakfast was served from 6:30AM till 11AM on weekdays and from 7AM till 12PM on weekends. It consisted of a buffet, plus the power to order eggs. Whereas the buffet wasn’t big, I discovered the standard to be excellent. The buffet consisted of 1 important bar at what turns into the sushi counter within the afternoons and evenings, plus a round desk.
The breakfast choice consisted of contemporary fruit, yogurt, cereal, fish, cheese, chilly cuts, veggies, scrambled eggs, breakfast potatoes, sausage, bacon, and an countless number of bread, pastries, and so on.
Maybe probably the most noteworthy a part of the buffet was the self-serve drink choice. As well as smoothies and juice, there was additionally tequila, vodka, sekt, and extra. Like I stated, this lodge is a bit quirky, because it’s not day-after-day you see that at a breakfast buffet!
I’m unsure if that is only a widespread characteristic in any respect Roomers properties, if this simply displays that Baden-Baden appears to be fairly standard with Russians, or what.
Employees within the restaurant supplied espresso, and each the americanos and cappuccinos hit the spot.
I additionally loved the veggie omelet that I ordered on our second morning.
Since my dad and mom had mainly completely been consuming German meals for per week straight, we determined to have dinner one night at Moriki, and you may discover the dinner menu right here. To drink, we ordered a bottle of sake to share, and we additionally had some edamame to start out.
We then ordered the chef’s alternative number of sushi and sashimi for 4 folks, which additionally got here with miso soup. It was far more meals than we had been anticipating.
Actually, the meals was a lot appreciated selection after all of the German meals we had been consuming throughout our go to. I’d say the sushi and sashimi had been fairly good, particularly given the place we had been.
Roomers Baden-Baden rooftop pool & bar
Roomers Baden-Baden has a rooftop on the sixth flooring, which consists of each a bar and pool. The rooftop bar is open day by day from 9AM till 1AM (till 12AM on Sundays). I’ve heard that this generally is a actual social gathering spot on weekends, and a few folks discover the noise from right here to be bothersome. That wasn’t a problem throughout our keep, although in equity, we had been staying throughout the week.
There was an inside round bar, plus an enormous indoor sofa space.
On prime of that, there was an outside deck with every kind of seating choices.
The rooftop boasts cute views of Baden-Baden.
The rooftop additionally has a pool, although it’s nearly extra of a visible centerpiece for the rooftop bar than one thing that appears to be that standard with swimmers. The pool has the identical hours because the spa, and is open day by day from 6:30AM till 1AM.
Given how lovely the climate was, we had drinks on the rooftop a few instances, and you may discover the meals menu right here and discover the drink menu right here. We had every part from espresso, to wine, to martinis.
Roomers Baden-Baden health club
Roomers Baden-Baden has a 24/7 health club on the fifth flooring, which I discovered to be fairly good. Whereas not big, it had trendy tools. Cardio tools included treadmills, bikes, and ellipticals, whereas there have been additionally free weights plus a number of weight coaching machines.
Roomers Baden-Baden spa complicated
Roomers Baden-Baden has a fairly epic spa complicated on the fifth flooring, which all visitors have entry to. That is completely price visiting in the event you keep at this lodge. The hours are extraordinary as effectively, because it’s open day by day from 6:30AM till 1AM.
The door main into the spa has fairly the message — “we prefer it nude.”
The spa had a lovely whirlpool, sauna, and steam room, plus quite a lot of rest areas, each indoors and outdoor.
And in case you haven’t observed a sample but, sure, the spa additionally has complimentary vodka. 😉
As you’d count on, that is additionally a full-service spa, and you may discover the spa menu right here. Nevertheless, I didn’t get any therapies throughout our go to, since we stayed busy exploring the realm.
Impressions of Baden-Baden
Once we deliberate our street journey, my assumption was that Baden-Baden would have the nicest lodge, however that we’d discover the vacation spot to be the least attention-grabbing. That positively wasn’t the case, and we had a unbelievable time right here.
For one, the city of Baden-Baden as such is charming. Whereas it’s standard with vacationers, it’s not as overcrowded as Heidelberg or Strasbourg, for instance. We loved a few good meals on the town, although to be trustworthy, I don’t assume it’s good to spend various hours exploring this space.
What we completely beloved about Baden-Baden is the way it sits proper on the fringe of Black Forest Nationwide Park. This wasn’t crowded in any respect, and though we went on one of many important roads, at one level we didn’t see one other automobile for 10 minutes.
Photos don’t do justice to how lovely the Black Forest is, however there’s simply one thing so good about driving by this space with the home windows down, taking within the contemporary air.
The opposite factor that’s superior about this space is that there are such a lot of cute villages proper on the foothills of the Black Forest. So we sort of simply aimlessly drove round, and had a good time. Since I used to be driving, I didn’t get many photos, so I apologize.
However in the event you love simply driving by lovely areas, I extremely advocate this type of journey.
We had an excellent keep at Roomers Baden-Baden. It is a distinctive property with a enjoyable design, good elite recognition, luxurious rooms, a tasty breakfast, and a lovely rooftop and spa. Whereas we loved our keep on the lodge, what we beloved most was the area, because the Black Forest (and the realm round it) has a lot to supply.
I intend to return to Baden-Baden sooner or later with Ford, as a result of I’m positive he’d get pleasure from it as effectively. Subsequent time I’d combine issues up and keep at Brenners Park, which belongs to Oetker Assortment, and which is presumably Germany’s most effectively regarded lodge.
