French-based hotel operator AccorHotels is launching its largest branch of its Mercure hotel brand in Dubai in an extensive conversion and rebranding of a former Sheikh Zayed Road landmark, the company announced in a statement on Monday.

The Mercure Dubai Barsha Heights Hotel Suites & Apartments will undergo the first of a two-phase comprehensive refurbishment to be completed by 19 May, 2017, of which 120 hotel rooms will be renovated.

The second phase will focus on enhancing additional guestrooms and facilities to meet AccorHotels’ international standards, elevating the hotel from a four star to a five star ranking in the form of hotel suites.

The second phase of renovation and refurbishment is expected to be completed by the end of 2018.

Upon opening, the 1,015 room hotel will be the largest Mercure property in AccorHotels’ global portfolio.

Olivier Granet, managing director & chief operating officer of AccorHotels Middle East and Africa (MEA), said: “We are delighted to enter into another high-profile agreement with our existing and trusted partner to further elevate the Mercure brand within the United Arab Emirates with the largest Mercure hotel in our global network.”

AccorHotels currently has 38 existing properties in the UAE, in addition to 22 others under development.
