Yagao Meihua Hotel Management Company, a Huazhu affiliate, opened the Mercure Shanghai Hongqiao Airport on August 28. The building used to be known Junrui Hotel Shanghai before it was closed several years ago, and has since been completely renovation by Mercure.

The other Mercure in Shanghai, the Mercure Shanghai Royalton, was the first hotel to be directly managed by Yagao Meihua Hotel Management Company in Shanghai and has already demonstrated excellent results in terms of performance, thanks to Huazhu's strong membership system and abilities in customer acquisition combined with Accor's international management and distribution platforms. These positive results have served as a strong encouragement for Mercure to further expand its presence in China and laid a foundation for the successful opening of the new hotel.

Huazhu's and Accor's booking systems have been fully integrated, allowing their members to enjoy benefits and to be able to make reservations on either platform. By connecting their loyalty programmes, Huazhu and Accor together serve 75 million members, expanding the scope of rights and benefits for existing members and allow points to be exchanged on either platform.

In Shanghai, a metropolis that is a genuine blend of history, culture, fashion and modernity, Mercure is committed to creating an ambience and decor that is a welcoming experience that blends a French essence accented by locally-inspired details. With its superior location and comprehensive suite of facilities, the Mercure Shanghai Hongqiao Airport is an ideal choice for  business travellers who want to experience the city's local characteristics amid French-style elegance.

As the hotel is adjacent to Shanghai Metro Line 10, it takes only 10 minutes to Shanghai Zoo and 17 minutes to the National Exhibition and Convention Center by subway. The superb location also provides easy access to many scenic spots.

The Mercure Shanghai Hongqiao Airport has 224 rooms whose decor is inspired by old Shanghai, but with French elements. The deluxe king rooms are equipped with a set of comfortable sofas, a Philips 43" LED TV and free Internet. The privilege rooms on the higher floors expand on the theme, adding a desk, a coffee maker, an oversized bathroom and shower facilities.

The restaurant on the first floor features a buffet breakfast. Meals for busy business executives on the go assure a diverse choice of dishes. The gym on the first floor offers a full array of fitness facilities.

Mercure is Accor Hotel's midscale brand with unique style and characteristics. It owns more than 750 hotels in 51 countries.
