We originally booked to stay at the Mercure but were upgraded to the Grand Mercure because they had a function on and had over booked - we were quite happy with this. Our room was excellent, large and very clean. The bathroom was spacious, clean and had a good size bath.
The Grand Mercure doesn't have much in the way of facilities itself but you can use the Sofitel and we made good use of the swimming pool area there. The pool complex is fantastic - great jacuzzi spa - only negative was the spitting - surely in a 5 star hotel they don't need to allow spitting all over the pool deck - fortunately we only saw it once but it was pretty disgusting and two members of staff stood by and watched. I know they spit in China but inside?? Not pleasant.
We found the bar prices very high but the food was better value. Room service was excellent - the member of staff I spoke to on the phone couldn't understand me and next thing I knew she was at the door with her copy of the menu to take my order - I was very impressed. The food was great too. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay here - the location is great - Renmin Square is a little way from the Drum/Bell Tower area (we walked it in about 15 minutes) but worth it for the peace and quiet after a busy day.
