Le Club Platinum status is usually only obtained after 60+ stays at an Accor property in a calendar year.
I've had Platinum status for the past year as a result of one of these deals, and it's provided great benefits in the form of room upgrades, free drinks, late checkouts and particularly attentive service.
Platinum status benefits include:
•100% more points
•A priority desk in more than 2500 hotels worldwide
•A drink and a welcome gift in Sofitel hotels
•A room always available before your arrival
•Late check-out until 4pm
•A dedicated customer service
•Guaranteed room availability 5 days before your arrival
•One Thalassa Sea and Spa Institute beauty product and treatment in Sofitel Thalassa Sea and Spa hotels
•In Adagio hotels: 1) Welcome gift for stays of 10 nights or more 2) Late check-out
Recommended if you're planning a stay in an Accor property in the next year.
