I am an Accor gold card holder and usually use the Novotel/Mercure/Ibis chain as my first choice of hotel.
I stayed at the Mercure Picaddilly on 9th May and was very impressed with my stay. (I stayed here on a couple of occasions in the past before Mercure took over, and had mixed experiences, but standards have clearly improved).
I was particularly impressed with with the courteous, friendly and professional nature of the reception and bar staff. The room was very clean and comfortable (nice large bed and powerful shower) and the location of the Mercure couldn't be better.
My only negative comment was with regards to the overnight parking charge of £15.00, which by any standards isn't cheap!! (Unlesss your staying in London!).
To be fair, the room rate was reasonable so I was happy to absorb the cost of the parking. If the room rate had been much higher I would have had a struggle to justify.
