This city centre hotel has a location overlooking the splendid town hall and Peace Gardens which cannot be bettered. However, this can also be a negative if you are bringing a car.On a recent visit to the city I decided on staying at the hotel because of its central location which meant that I could walk to all of my meetings. Arriving by car I was given the option of valet parking-expensive for this type of hotel and city or leaving it in a near by car park and walking back.Neither were ideal but the valet won simply because of the convenience factor but took a little of the shine away from the rate I paid for the room.Having negotiated the communication system/barrier to actually get the car to the outside of the hotel everything else about the stay was stress free.Check in was efficient accommodating and courteous. My room was of a superior standard expected from a hotel of this quality with some nice touches such as the ability to plug your MP3 player into the TV for a more individualistic choice of music,a stand in shower and a well presented and very comfortable bed.
In the evening the downstairs lobby and champagne bar become the sort of area that you can relax and chill in though the selection of wines could have been wider.
Overall the staff were ambassadors for the hotel showing a real desire to make your stay as positive as possible.They had been trained professionally in customer care and it showed!
As a LeClub member I have stayed in a number of Mercure hotels in Europe and whilst pleasant they are not exactly at the standard of this hotel perhaps because it has been transferred from the original MacDonald Hotel brand.Whatever the reason marketing need to find a way to differentiate this hotel from others in this brand as it is definitely on a different level.
