Fairmont Rabat (Salé)

Apologies in case this has already been posted but I have made a search and it has returned no results.
I was in the new marina area of Salé, just across the River from Rabat (Morocco) and have seen this : a new Fairmont is being built. I am posting this in the 2021 openings thread, as a dummy booking in 12/2020 did not return this hotel as an option.

Mondrian Cannes and Bordeaux

Accor has announced plans to bring the Mondrian brand to the French cities of Cannes and Bordeaux.

The Cannes Grand Hotel on the city’s Promenade de la Croisette is set to reopen under the Mondrian portfolio in 2021, and will feature 75 rooms, meeting spaces, a restaurant and bar overlooking a 4,000 sqm private garden, and a private beach.

Meanwhile the Bordeaux property will be housed within a 19th century building, and will offer 97 rooms, as well as a lounge bar, spa, meeting space and a 225 sqm open air terrace. The hotel is also scheduled to open in 2021.

Interesting, Accor are definitely missing some nice Mediterranean resorts.

I never understood why there is no Sofitel in Cannes or Nice.

Apologies for a potential stupid question, but the quoted article talks about So like a distinct brand. But are we talking about Sofitel So or something else ? I am getting completely lost in all Accor brands...

It's the So/Sofitel AFAIK, just like Mgallery by Sofitel one moment and then just MGallery..... Hard to keep up indeed.

It is my guess each brand gets a dedicated executive and team, and internal politics plays a role I guess. If a certain executive has a "favourite", to call it that way, they might first install them in the posh Sofitel team, and then after clashes with Sofitel management etc., have "SO" elevated to a separate brand and have the person in question lead that. That way, they can justify luxury travel and expenses as "research", and few people can be incompetent at spending money on luxury.

BTW, Mondrian is not ALL-aligned, so it is as good as none. There is a recently-renovated MGallery in Cannes though.

Tribe and Mercure, Amsterdam

Accor has announced plans for two new properties in the Dutch city of Amsterdam, including the first hotel under its Tribe brand in the Netherlands.

The Tribe and Mercure properties will be housed within the ‘Gare du Nord’ project in Amsterdam-North, next to the Noord station on the North-South metro line.....

ok, that really is a terrible location.

I am glad Accor is making bigger footoprint in Croatia, but i really wish they would bring more hotels on the sea and some Ibis / Ibis styles inland.

I find Accor properties very spotty and far and between in the SE Europe/Balkans with much space to improve (Croatian seaside, Albanian seaside, Montenegro, Ohrid area in Macedonia, Greece).

I want to see those countries in more detail, but find it hard to "waste" my vacation days in non brand hotels and not getting nights/points. Damn, I'm a damaged person.

Mondrian Seoul Itaewon

Accor, a world-leading augmented hospitality group, and sbe, the leading international hospitality group that develops, manages and operates award-winning brands, have announced the first Mondrian hotel in Asia Pacific. Mondrian Seoul Itaewon, which is being developed in partnership with Yojin Construction & Engineering, marks the fifth property in the Mondrian portfolio.....

Update: "The oldest and most mythic of La Croisette hotels", Le Grand Hotel Cannes can be booked for stays starting end of March 2021, pricing seems very reasonable for what is probably the most central location in Cannes (even if the building itself and the surroundings of its main entrance from the back side are meh), and some photos are up. Most importantly - the website shows full ALL participation, I am not sure if this will be retained once rebranding is complete, but given that management has probably been taken over by Accor directly, it might.

Just for anyone who may not be aware - the lack of Members Rate is normal for all hotels in Asia Pacific, as Accor Plus members get a flat 10% rate discount, as well as access to Red Hot Rooms promotions. Unfortunately, this means normal ALL members do not enjoy the normal 5-10% member discount in the region.

is this hotel part of any brand, or is it like a "standalone" hotel that is managed by Accor?
