On-street parking is very difficult in the center of Marseille, especially given the proximity to the newly pedestrian Vieux Port area. The Mercure hotel is part of the Centre Bourse shopping center (over 100 shops) and is directly over a parking garage, with a private car park section set aside within this garage for an additional 16 euros a day.
