We were underwhelmed with our one night stay at the Mercure, Brighton. My husband who travels for business all over the world stated, "this is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in." We stayed there March 17th. The weather, indeed, was horrid. However, the hotel was just as horrid. There was no hot water as one of the boilers had busted. The windows in our front room were so old that the wind noise coming through sounded almost equivalent to tropical storm force wind. It wasn't---but the noise was so loud all night long. The room was dated and tired. On non smoking floors, clearly people are smoking in their rooms as you can smell in in the hallways and it seeps into the other hotel rooms. Also, the walls are so very thin that if there is talking and partying of any sort going on, a good night sleep will be hard to achieve. Overall, the Mercure seemed to be a dated and neglected hotel yet, it can still be rather pricey. From what I could tell, it seems perhaps the boutique hotels may be the way to go in Brighton. If you appreciate a quality hotel this is not the place for you.
