Ahmedabad: Accor has launched Grand Mercure in Gujarat’s Gandhi Nagar, the first hotel outside South India. The new property is launched in GIFT City, India’s first ‘Intelligent and Green Infrastructure’.
Grand Mercure Gandhinagar GIFT City features 151 well-equipped guestrooms. The nine-floor hotel, amidst GIFT City, is built to cater to the demands of seasoned frequent travellers looking for quality accommodation and admirers of the inventive homegrown interior. Keeping the state’s rich cultural, historical, culinary and geographical dimensions a topmost priority, the hotel incorporates local touchpoints to all its premium services, food, accommodation, and healthy lifestyle options.

Inspired by the rich culinary legacy of Gujarat, the hotel has a specialty restaurant Samaroh, which offers local quintessential Gujarati delicacies. Guests are welcomed with a Gujarati Thali which truly captures the flavours of the state
and is a treat to reckon with.
