The Mercure Yokosuka will be the fourth Mercure Hotel in Japan – Mercure Ginza, Mercure Narita and the newly opened Mercure Sapporo.

Patrick Basset – Vice President Accor – Japan, South Korea, Philippines and Vietnam says that “It is an exciting year for the Mercure brand in Japan and throughout the Asia Pacific, where 13 Mercure hotels will open in 2009. This burst of mid scale hotel development is an indication of an increase in demand by owners and developers, seeking the reassurance of recognised hotel brands and the expertise of international hotel companies.”

Mercure Yokosuka will feature a restaurant and lounge as well as 8 meeting rooms, including a ballroom of over 500 square metres.

Accor operates 54 Mercure hotels throughout the Asia Pacific and 690 Mercure hotels around the world. The Mercure hotel brand is experiencing significant expansion throughout Asia Pacific.
