Global hotel operator Accor has continued the UK expansion of its midscale Mercure brand with the opening of a hotel in a former police station in Greenwich. 

The 145-bedroom Mercure London Greenwich is housed in the architecturally-prized 1930’s ‘Police House’ on Catherine Grove and has opened following a remodelling of the property.

The refurb resulted in the addition of a two-storey extension at roof level with floor-to-ceiling glass rooms and a new penthouse suite.

Mercure, now the second largest midscale hotel chain outside of North America, is expanding rapidly in the UK​ under the leadership of managing director Jonathan Sheard​ who said the growth was expected to continue next year.

"This is a fantastic hotel," he said. "The way that the building has been designed with so much light and glass really opens up the hotel for guests to experience the local area - a very important aspect of a Mercure hotel. We are very proud of our growth for the Mercure portfolio this year and we will continue to increase it in 2013," he concluded.
