AccorHotels is rolling out an aggressive expansion across Australia and New Zealand, resulting in a presence across five new locations.

Auckland aside, AccorHotels' Mercure brand will land in four new Australian locations over the next three years, boosting its presence to beyond 50 hotels in the region. The commitment is also a boon for the respective hotel developers, allowing hundreds of millions of dollars worth of development to proceed.

The addition of these new four new Australian developments to the Urban.com.au Project Database takes to 90 the number of hotel developments being tracked.

What they say

We are thrilled to announce our 50th milestone for the Mercure brand and add four new Mercure hotels to AccorHotels’ Pacific network in dynamic locations including the Gold Coast, Canberra, Melbourne and Auckland.

Mercure is a leading global midscale brand with a strong reputation for delivering quality service and great guest experiences. Each of these hotels will have significant impacts locally, driving employment and tourism to each location. We look forward to working with the owners and further expanding our new-build Mercure network of hotels.
