Rebrand for Renaissance London Gatwick Hotel

Some 2,125sqm of flexible meeting space is on offer at the former Renaissance London Gatwick Hotel, which is to be rebranded this month. An agreement between Accor and Arora International Hotels will see the hotel rebranded as the Mercure London Gatwick from 23 May. Located half a mile from Gatwick Airport, the four-star hotel has a strong meetings offering. It offers 2,125sqm of flexible meeting space, including 15 meeting rooms, the largest of which can take up to 220 delegates. All of the 254-room property’s meeting rooms offer high-speed internet access and the Mercure Meetings service package will be rolled out to the hotel over the next few months. The hotel also has two restaurants, Pavilion and L’Olivio, and a fitness centre. Arora plans to undertake an extensive refurbishment programme at the property, which is the first airport hotel to become part of the Mercure UK portfolio. Mercure Hotels operations director, regional UK and Ireland, Shane Pateman said: “Gatwick is a key location for the Mercure brand – it is an international business and tourist hub and is key for us as we develop the brand in the UK.”
