Due to a trade fair in Dusseldorf the Renaissance Hotel situated virtually next door that I tend to use was fully booked so had to utilise the Mercure instead, as I have done on a couple of previous occasions.
It’s a typical solid business hotel with all the facilities you would expect. The whole hotel is very clean and the rooms are sizeable, modern style and functional and comfortable. Yes it is located close to a busy road, so if you get a room at the front you will need to keep the window shut. But the glazing is very noise proof and the air conditioning has always been efficient in the rooms I have stayed in.
I does offer a shuttle bus to the Messe which does make it popular with exhibitors and sometimes you can catch a crowd checking in or out, but on the times I have stayed I have had no problems with the service.
As well as my usual gripe that you have to pay for the internet connection, the issue I do have with the Mecure is that it is just too sterile for me and lacks character. Every time I arrive in the brightly lit lobby with its large modern art I get more the impression that I have entered a private hospital rather than a hotel.
Consequently I don’t tend to eat or drink here , as there are good local restaurants around the far side of the Renaissance Hotel.
So for somewhere to sleep with all the facilities you would expect from a modern business hotel then I cannot fault the Mecure. But for somewhere with a bit of character, you probably need to use a bit of shoe leather or take a Taxi to the Düsseldorf Altstadt.
