leader and worldwide group which owns various brands from the very high-end Sofitel and Pullman to
mid-market Mercure to the budget and economy Etap and Formule 1.
Consumers who are attracted to such brands know exactly what they want and get: hotels within a given brand

hardened business executive or timorous first-timer, they can be expected and comforting.
