Frankfurt Travel Tip:
Westend Gate, formerly known as Plaza Büro Center and commonly referred to as The Marriott, is a 47-storey, 159 m (522 ft) skyscraper in the Westend-Süd district of Frankfurt, Germany. It had been the tallest building in Germany from 1976 until 1978 when it was surpassed by the Silberturm, which is also located in Frankfurt.
The Westend Gate is located just across the street from the Frankfurt Trade Fair grounds and near the Naturmuseum Senckenberg and the Bockenheim Campus of the Goethe University Frankfurt. The main tenant is a Marriott hotel which oppucies 19 floors (26 to 44) and offers 588 rooms.
The structure consists of 2 slabs plus a narrow wing attached to the east side. It was renamed Westend Gate in 2011, when it was completely renovated as a green building.
