Leading hospitality group Accor is opening a new Mercure hotel in Cardiff by the end of 2020. The hotel previously operated under the Park Inn brand but is currently being extensively redesigned and fully refurbished to align with Mercure standards.
Mercure Cardiff North Hotel, located in Circle Way East, is owned by Danish real estate group Proark and managed by Mercure.
Every Mercure hotel takes its inspiration from the features, traditions and history of its individual location while sharing the consistent quality of an international brand. Each hotel features locally inspired artwork, design, décor and even textures encompassing elements of its area’s cultural and historic past.
Mercure Cardiff North Hotel takes its inspiration from the historic docklands district Tiger Bay and the key role it played in the export of coal, iron and tin from South Wales during the industrial revolution. The design of the hotel features copper aesthetic lining inspired by the Millennium Centre façade in Cardiff Bay, while curated display items include Welsh love spoons, miners’ hats and welsh textiles. The hotel offers 132 guest rooms and provides a convivial eating and drinking experience with a 32-cover restaurant, a café and bar lounge area.
Jean-Marc Vendioux, Senior Vice President Managed hotels UKI at Accor, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Proark on this new hotel in Cardiff and are proud to brand it as a Mercure. Guests can already expect an incredibly high level of quality and personalised service, as they would receive in any Mercure, and this will be elevated by the look and feel of a hotel rooted in its local Cardiff community once the refurbishment is complete later this year.”
Michael Brag, Chairman of Proark commented: “We have worked closely with Accor since signing this hotel and are extremely pleased with the ongoing work being done to redesign and refurbish it. The hotel has the Mercure service and features guests expect but it will also offer local touches specific to Cardiff, which we are confident will be well received by business and leisure travellers alike.”
