18.06.2012

Accor Group, which was the first operator to open midscale hotels in Russia, has just announced its Russian debut with Mercure brand by opening Mercure Arbat Hotel in Moscow, signalling a new and symbolic stage in its expansion.
Mercure Arbat Moscow hotel is a newcomer in Russia to bring its unique combination of French elegancy & chic with best traditions of Russian heritage.

The capital, which lacks 300,000 hotel rooms, is indeed a high potential region for Accor: "Our search for investors is paying off: the pace of openings is set to accelerate even though our strategy has always been one of moderation. We would also like to announce that the Sofitel scheme in Moscow, signed in 2007, has been revived," explains Alexis Delaroff, Chief Operating Officer for Accor Russia.
Today, Accor is working on more Mercure hotel projects in Russia and CIS than any other Accor brand.
