Accor - the nr 1 European hotel operator, through its partnership with Orbis is pursuing its robust development in Poland and in the Baltic States.

Thanks to the signed agreements, we have been granted access to high-profile know‑how as well as state-of-the-art, tested booking tools and full marketing, sales and operational support.

The Mercure Brand

The core fundamental of the Mercure brand is to remain in harmony with people, tradition, history, culture and the distinctive features of the hotel’s location. The network embraces more than 700 hotels in 50 countries. The brand develops strongly based on a franchise model, also because hotels of the network are known for their ability to skillfully draw upon the values of the local tradition and culture and to proficiently combine modernity with the historic roots of the place. While retaining the brand’s standards, the hotels are surprisingly individualistic. Their strength lies in their three values: authenticity, curiosity and client commitment. The Mercure Riga Centre is the 22nd hotel of this brand in the Orbis Hotel Group.
