Grand Mercure Debuts in Hanoi, Vietnam

Accor recently celebrated the opening of Grand Mercure Hanoi. Located close to the Temple of Literature and within walking distance of the Imperial Citadel of Thang Long and Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum, this culturally immersive hotel allows guests to uncover Hanoi—a city with over 1,000 years of history.

The hotel's interior design concept is inspired by rice. From the water-filled fields and hillside terraces where rice is grown, to the color and shape of the individual grains, this symbol is showcased in many elements throughout the hotel, including the walls, ceilings and tapestries. Throughout the hotel, the skill of local artisans is also on display with lacquerware from Hạ Thái lacquer village, Chu Dau pottery from Hai Duong province and Bat Trang ceramics. Inspired by the architecture of the Temple of Literature, splashes of red and yellow—representing prosperity and affluence—can be seen throughout the hotel.

The hotel offers a choice of 181 rooms and suites ranging from 291-square-foot Deluxe Rooms to the 1,249-square-foot Presidential Suite. The amenities include 50-inch Smart TVs, high-speed Wi-Fi, pod coffee machines, walk-in rain showers and high-tech Japanese toilets. The 11 suites offer separate living areas and the Executive Lounge provides an exclusive space for guests staying in the hotel’s premium accommodation.

LỘC-ALLY restaurant (Grand Mercure Hanoi)

Grand Mercure Hanoi houses four restaurants and bars with originally curated culinary concepts, comprising four diverse culinary and social venues, including LỘC-ALLY, which offers contemporary all-day dining with international flavors and local favorites, and Cat Vi, a signature 15th-floor Asian brasserie that blends the regional gastronomy and Vietnamese soul food with city views. Van’s lobby lounge is a great place to socialize and grab light refreshments and VIVU Rooftop Sky Bar is where  one can sip cool cocktails as the sun sets over the city’s iconic attractions.

The hotel also has a unique glass-sided rooftop pool and a well equipped fitness center, both of which are perched on the 16th floor. For deeply soothing therapies, the fourth-floor SỐNG Spa offers wellness based on time-honored Vietnamese techniques.

Grand Mercure Hanoi also has three flexible meetings and events venues that can host a wide variety of business functions and social occasions. The grand ballroom offers 3,488 square feet of soundproof space with integrated screens and a sound system.
