(Press Release) Accor will take over the Radisson Resort Gold Coast from 18th December and re-brand the hotel to Mercure Gold Coast Resort. The hotel is Accor's 200th in Australia, achieved just over 21 years after launching its first hotel in Australia.
Accor was appointed managers of the resort by GC Hotel Management.
The resort boasts a prime location in the Gold Coast's "Green Belt", within easy driving distance of the Gold Coast's legendary beaches, as well as the Springbrook – Mt Tamborine rainforest area.With the recent opening of a new extension of the freeway, the resort is just over 20 minutes to Gold Coast's airport, less than an hour from Brisbane and within easy driving distance of Gold Coast's theme parks, Metricon Stadium, Skilled Park and the Robina business centre.
The resort is affiliated with five championship golf courses, including the adjacent world-class Palm Meadows course, which has hosted a wide range of international tournaments over the last 25 years.
Guests have access to the hotel's extensive resort facilities, including a day spa, driving range, two outdoor pools, four floodlit tennis courts, a fully equipped gymnasium, sauna and an outdoor spa.
Announcing the new contract, Accor Pacific Chief Operating Officer, Simon McGrath, said it was a fitting hotel to celebrate such a major milestone for the group."For Accor it is a very strategic new addition to the network, both because it represents a significant landmark for Accor's expansion in Australia, and also because it adds to the group's portfolio in the Gold Coast," he said.
"The addition of the Mercure Resort will allow us to cater for growing demand in the mid-market, especially for conferences, events and groups."
