Our last night of a 2 week trip by motorcycle was spent at this hotel. It's in a great location just 10 minutes from the centre of town where there are loads of bars and restaurants, as well as the beautiful cathedral which is well worth a visit. We couldn't see the lights show which seems to be every evening at 10.30 except Mondays, and as we were there on a Monday evening we missed out, but just seeing it lit up against the blue night sky was fantastic.
The hotel is lovely, as you would expect from a Mercure. After sitting for a few hours on a motorcycle the first thing I always do in a hotel is have a shower, and the wet room type shower in this hotel was wonderful and refreshed me for a night out in Reims.
Reims is probably one of the most expensive French towns we've stayed in and having a beer at one of the lovely pavement bars in town costs a fair bit, with 2 large beers costing over 15 euro. Either this is the price for tourists or the locals earn a good wage (or don't drink in town) but we did find a bar called Gin Pamp (or something like that) near the big ball fountain, and there drinks were about 3 or 4 euro each albeit in plastic glasses.
We didn't have breakfast at the Mercure as I refuse to pay 17 euro each for the same meal I would have paid 7 euro for at an Ibis, so we had it en route.
The car park is underground and accessed via a code given to you on check in. It's very secure but a bit daunting to get to on a motorcycle as the ramp down is very steep and ridged, but we got down safely and access to the hotel is by lift from the car park so all very easy.
I'd definitely visit Reims again and would probably stay at this hotel as well, even if only for the shower!
