In May 2015, three new addresses will open in Recife, which has been dubbed the “Brazilian Venice”.
Recife is a colorful city with many canals, superb religious buildings and a beach stretching for several kilometers. In a few months’ time it will be home to the Mercure Recife Mar Hotels Conventions, the Grand Mercure Recife Atlante Plaza and the Grand Mercure Summerville Resort, which will replace three hotels from the Pontes Hotels & Resorts network.
For Accor, bolstering its already substantial presence in Recife is no coincidence. Indeed, this city boasts the highest average daily rate and the best occupancy rate in the North-East region of Brazil, with more than 85% of travelers on business trips.
These three eagerly awaited openings will add 432 rooms to Accor’s local network, making it the absolute leader in Recife.
The Group claims it strong ambition in North-East Brazil with these three contracts. 24 hotels have already opened in Alagoas, Bahia, Ceará, Maranhão, Rio Grande do Norte, Paraíba, Pernambuco, Piauí and Sergipe.
Accor currently operates 210 hotels in Brazil, the world’s fifth largest country.
