Accor to launch second MGallery hotel in May

Accor Hotels is set to launch its second MGallery hotel in the UK when the Francis hotel in Bath is opened on 28 May 2012.

The Francis hotel will be the first MGallery outside London. It follows a £6m refurbishment of the Mercure Bath Francis hotel.

The Grade I-listed property will have 98 bedrooms, with interiors designed by architectural and design firm Househam Henderson. A Brasserie Blanc will adjoin the hotel.

Jonathan Sheard, managing director operations for MGallery and Mercure hotels, said: "The opening of our second MGallery hotel in just six months is further evidence of Accor Hotels' commitment to growing the MGallery collection in the UK."

Accor Hotels launched the upscale MGallery Collection in the UK in October 2011 with the opening of the St Ermin's hotel at St James, London.

The MGallery Collection started in 2008 and includes almost 50 hotels in 18 countries around the world.
