The hotel, Grand Mercure Shanghai Zhongya, is scheduled to open end June, a perfect time for Shanghai as it unveils the six-month World Expo. Strategically located at the South Square of Shanghai Railway Station, one of the city's busiest travel hubs linking Shanghai with numerous destinations across the country, the hotel is just with a stone's throw to metro stations of Line 1, Line 3 and Line 4, which makes it an ideal choice for guests to reach  the Expo site by metro.

The hotel also boasts an easy access to most places in the city from the bustling central business districts to popular tourism attractions such as the Nanjing Road Pedestrian Mall and People's Square.

“Shanghai, as the largest center of commerce and finance in mainland China, with its vitality and dynamism for progress has seen a strong business recovery in recent months. This is despite significant supply increases into the city in the last two years. Thanks to its strategic location and the Grand Mercure brand’s awareness, we are confident that the hotel will rapidly achieve success.” said Mr. Robert Murray, Senior Vice President of Accor Greater China.

Joining the two Grand Mercure hotels, Grand Mercure Baolong Shanghai and Grand Mercure Hongqiao Shanghai, which have successfully operated in Shanghai for some years, Grand Mercure Shanghai Zhongya is designed to offer guests a personalized accommodation experience with a full range of facilities, including 288 spacious guest rooms and suites, a signature Chinese restaurant, all day dining with International cuisine, a lifestyle lobby lounge -bar, a spa with eleven luxurious therapy rooms, a fitness center and business center, as well as 5 function rooms with a 500-square-meter ballroom catering to conference and banquet needs.

Grand Mercure, the specialized hotel and apartment brand under Accor Group in the Asia Pacific region, has been renowned for its distinctive style and character. Each Grand Mercure hotel and apartment is an integral part of their surroundings, with its design, décor, cuisine and service all reflecting the most attractive aspects of the local destination.

The soon-to-open hotel was developed by Zhongya Hotel Co Ltd, a subsidiary of Shanghai Ever Bright Town Co Ltd, a local conglomerate with operations covering hotels, food & beverage, real estate development, advertising as well as import and export trade.
As of June 2010, the Grand Mercure chain runs a total portfolio of 7 properties in China, while in the Asia Pacific region, there are 36 hotels under the brand.
