Mercure Hado Hanoi scheduled to open late 2010

Accor has plans to double the number of rooms under its management in Vietnam by 2012.

 Vietnam has always been considered as one of the strategic markets in Southeast Asia for Accor, which is demonstrated through Accors early entrance and consistent growth in the country since 1991. With signs of both economic recovery and a re-strengthening of tourism arrivals, Accor is confident and ready to selectively expand our presence throughout the country, said Patrick Basset, Vice President of Operations for Vietnam, the Philippines, South Korea and Japan.

 Accor plans to expand the number of brands on offer in Vietnam to include upscale products such as Pullman and MGallery, through to more economical ibis hotel brand. In late 2010, Accor anticipates the opening of the first Pullman hotel in Vietnam - Pullman Vung Tao and the second MGallery hotel for Vietnam in the countrys capital - Hotel De LOpera Hanoi. Beyond that, additional developments include 3 Novotels - Novotel Imperial Hoi An, Novotel Resort Phu Quoc and Novotel Saigon Centre.

The Mercure Hanoi Hado with its central location in the city will be the third Mercure for Vietnam. The first 2 ibis hotels for the country will open in Ho Chi Minh city - ibis Saigon and ibis Saigon South.

The coming twelve months is sure to be an exciting period for Accor in Vietnam, with many new developments in the pipeline. Pullman Vung Tao will be the first for the brand in the country, while Hotel De LOpera Hanoi will be the second hotel of the highly distinctive upscale MGallery label, added Mr. Basset.

Accor currently has 13 hotels and 2,147 rooms in operation throughout Vietnam and more than 2,000 additional rooms committed through the above mentioned developments.
