This Mercure is located directly beside the Train Station. There is parking (for a fee) right behind the hotel and you do not need to drive into the city center to get there.
In addition to having the trains and other public transit right there, downtown and the waterfront are an easy walk from the hotel---plenty of food options and stores, etc are easily accessible on foot.
The staff were particularly friendly and helpful--esepcially at the front desk.
Room was good: clean, decent sized, comfortable bed, good shower, etc.
Wifi was fast and consistent
The on site fitness room and sauna does have a sign saying you have to prebook it--which was a bit odd. Talking to the front desk, they also offered use of a pass to workout at the very nice, well equiped, professional facility next door---which was wonderful.
