Yagao Meihua Hotel Management Co, Ltd, an entity of Huazhu, announced the opening of the Mercure Shanghai Hongqiao Airport on Aug. 28. Following a large-scale renovation by Mercure of the Junrui Hotel Shanghai which closed several years ago, the hotel now has a completely new look. Complementing the Mercure Shanghai Royalton, the Mercure Shanghai Hongqiao Airport welcomes its guests with a comfortable, convenient accommodation experience which combines a romantic French style with local characteristics that define Shanghai.
Mr. Sun Wu, Executive Vice President and CEO of Upscale Brands Unit at Huazhu Hotels Group, mentioned: there are four mid- and upscale brands which are managed by Yagao Meihua mainly focusing on first- and second-tier cities as well as major business centers. Shanghai has become the main market for Huazhu’s expansion in the mid- and upscale hotel market. Among the more than 30 Mercure projects for which the company has signed contracts, 10 are located in Shanghai. The company plans to establish a steady presence in several first- and second-tier cities, then move into a second stage of growth by expanding into third-tier cities.
The Mercure Shanghai Hongqiao Airport is located at 398 Konggang 1st Road, opposite the entrance to Hongqiao International Airport T1, only 7.3 kilometers from T2 and 8.4 kilometers from Hongqiao Railway Station. 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 provides easy access to many of the nearby scenic spots.
The Mercure Shanghai Hongqiao Airport has 224 rooms which are not only reflective of the old Shanghai decor but also incorporate French elements into the details. The deluxe king rooms are equipped with a set of comfortable sofas, a Philips 43″ LED TV and free internet, offering guests an exclusive private space. The spacious privilege rooms on the higher floors expand on the theme, adding an independent desk, a coffeemaker, a clean oversized bathroom and comfortable shower facilities.
The lobby of the Mercure Shanghai Hongqiao Airport features modern decor against a backdrop of purple elegance. The restaurant on the first floor features a delicious buffet breakfast with a wide variety of selections. Special meals for busy business executives on the go prepared by the hotel’s chefs assure a diversified choice of nutritious dishes. The gym on the first floor offers a full array of fitness facilities, allowing guests to experience a vigorous and healthy French lifestyle.
