2041

These offers come round every so often, get in quick before the link is taken down. Note that you will need to sign up a new account to take advantage of this offer - it can't be applied to an existing one.

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
•An upgrade
•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.

    Worth signing up to hopefully get 'something for nothing', but as an A-Club Platinum for the past few years I don't have many favourable words to say about the program. Platinum has got me room preference, late check out, a few bottles of water and the odd free drink from 50+ nights. Absolutely no comparison to IHG Priority Club / Starwood (SPG) / Marriott Rewards / Club Carlson etc.

      if you travel regularly and use Marriott, check out the Marriott "Taste of Platinum" challenge. You have to ask for it specifically and then it's up to the customer service if you get approved so maybe tell them you have a lot of travel coming up or something like that (I got approved, my colleague didn't).
      Based on various internet forums, you will have better luck using the contact function the Marriott website (as opposed to emailing directly).

      Basically they give you platinum status immediately for 3 months, and then you have 3 months to stay 15 nights (or some other condition they may impose). During the 3 months you have full platinum privilege. I did it earlier in the year and kept it.

      Platinum at marriott give you club lounge access, free internet, free upgrade, and bonus 500 points each stay. free lounge access is the key… because in all the hotels i've stayed in, this means free booze every evening (a huge saving!!!).

      I believe priority club (holiday inn) offer a similar program.

      •  

        Indeed. You can also go for a Starwood (SPG) Platinum Challenge for ~18 nights over 3 months. Accor's program hardly compares to these though!

      Once you're past the last bit and confirm, and it takes you to your profile page, it shows your:

      Card type :
      Le Club Accorhotels Loyalty Platinum

      It does at the end once it takes you to your account page. Look around the bottom left of the page…

    Le Club is good if you stay in Sofitel, Pullman, or MGallery hotels often (Room upgrade offer only applies to these hotels). Benefits for the other Accor chain hotels (Novotel, Mecure, etc) are pretty much non-existant although you might get lucky and get the odd upgrade here or there.

    Also, the points you rack up with them are pretty useless in terms of redemption/conversion options.

    Definitely not as good as Hyatt, Mariott, or Starwood programs, but hey it's free (which kinda reflects on the product)

    Anyone with an existing account having trouble signing up? If I enter my email address it throws an error (and I note the URL contains the phrase 'already-member').

    The instructions say "If you already have a profile, please enter your login details (email, password)." — but no place to enter your email address or password…

        If you use gmail just add a . in your username.

        Gmail doesn't see dots within usernames.

        ie: [email protected] = [email protected] = [email protected] etc

        • +4 votes

          You can also add +anything. For example:
          [email protected]
          [email protected]

          It makes it very easy to setup filters, and also find out who leaks your email address.

    keep this in mind.. i went from platinum to classic because i did not use it enough.

    When you join the Le Club Accorhotels program you can access different statuses. Your status is determined by your account activity over a 12-month (365-day) period.
    Your status changes when you fulfill the conditions described below. You retain this status for a 12-month (365-day) period. If, at the end of these 12 months, you again fulfill the status conditions, it will be renewed for another 12 months (365 days). If you no longer fulfill the conditions during the following 12 months, you will be awarded the status corresponding to your activity. The card corresponding to your new status is sent to you immediately.
    The Program rewards allocation rules are linked to your status on the date of stay (check-in date). Program benefits are only granted to you if the corresponding stay is eligible, i.e. it entitles you to earn Le Club Accorhotels points.
    Each status opens up a whole new world of rewards:
    Classic status: you become a Le Club Accorhotels Classic member as of your first stay in an Accor hotel.
    Gold status: from 30 overnight stays per year in an Accor hotel or 10,000 Le Club Accorhotels points.
    Silver status: from 10 overnight stays per year in an Accor hotel or 2500 Le Club Accorhotels points.
    Platinum status: from 60 overnight stays per year in an Accor hotel or 25,000 Le Club Accorhotels points.

    You will receive your Le Club Accorhotels Loyalty card after your first stay in one of our hotels.
    Until then, don't forget to mention your member number (xxxx) each time you make a reservation as well as upon arrival at your hotel.

    signed up a year ago and recently just use this to upgrade my stay at the Sebel & Citigate Albert Park Melbourne. I suggest just sign up for it and you never know when you will need it. I certainly didnt go out of my way to book at Sebel, it was by chance that Sebel had this deal going on and i just so happened to have Platinum status.

      Change the address in your old account to something disposable, or if you have a gmail account just introduce some periods eg. [email protected] = [email protected] You'll still get the email and the Accor database will register a unique address

        THanks … this works pretty well.

    Accor platinum status is effectively useless. I stayed at a couple of their hotels and was never recognized.

    My other hotel stays have had my gold/platinum status almost instantaneously recognize.

    Basically, the status isn't worth the effort at all.

    Great marketing campaign though.

    • +3 votes

      Clifton,
      It is recognised at Sofitel, Pullman & MGallery.
      At Sofitel, they bumped up my room to top exec floor with views with drinks and cake ready in my room and next day fruit bowl.

      But if you stayed at others like Mecure and NOvotel, yeah then it's pretty much useless.

      •  

        i got a free upgrade, free car parking and late checkout when i used it at Sebel Adelaide. I really needed the late checkout as i was a bit green the night before… too much pre-drinks

    •  

      my platinum card was recognized last year at Novotel Fenix Silom Bangkok, booked the nights on 50% discount and got upgraded to Executive room :D

      no such luck at Mercure Kuta Bali and Novotel (KL - close to Bukit Bintang)

      let us know about the result

    Seems like a good deal. Thanks OP.

    Went through the whole thing and got an error at the end after age input. No confirm emails.
    Edit: Never mind, just got it.

  •  

    doesnt give me any confirmation email and last page show an error.

    After go back to home, display my name as a platinum member

    quite confusing….

  •  

    I'm getting the following error;
    "The request failed and the error is unknown or undefined."

    This happens when I accept the t&c and click continue at the end of page 3. :(

  •  

    Is this recognised internationally?

    And how long does this deal usually last?

    •  

      yes it is, it last one year if you did not get spend enough nights to keep your platinum status

  •  

    A Platinum once again, Thanks OP!!!

  •  

    I'm just after a tent site, buddy.

  •  

    Combine this with Accor Advatange Plus account, you will get loads of stuff. In Fiji free upgrade, 50% of all dinnning, one free Day and it was half price to join plus compare to joining in Aus.

    •  

      Advantage Plus is a paid-for subscription that isn't worth the investment unless you travel to Accor hotels very frequently

  •  

    does anyone know if the benefits still apply if you pre-pay through sites like wotif? I guess if you call them after the booking to confirm?

    •  

      from reading the T&C pdf it seems it may need to be a direct booking

    •  

      It must be a direct booking through accor.com, and you must quote membership number upon booking. Note that Accor price match.

      •  

        price match who? i doubt i can get them to match Crown Towers

        •  

          All advertised rates for Accor properties, this discussion being about booking properties covered by the Le Club Platinum card.

      •  

        Also, why anyone books through wotif.com with it's third party $5.00 booking fee and $25.00 change fee, is beyond me when most hotel chains price match.

        •  

          Well firstly there are other sites that don't charge any booking fee, secondly i never change the booking and thirdly i prefer not having a hold of the entire value of the room being taken off the card for two weeks, along with an incidentals bond, as well as having to pay the room fee on checkout, as i use a visa debit. Hopefully it's not beyond you now.

        •  

          Note that Accor.com bookings are pre-paid. Never said I had anything against other sites with no booking fee - have been known to use booking.com from time to time.

        • +1 vote

          What is beyond ME personally is why some posts get negged on here. Feels like a Panic at the Disco concert posting in here sometimes.

          Thanks for the info, i have only stayed at the Sofitel once and paid the traditional way back in the day, i forget if i have used other Accor hotels before. May have stayed at the Mercure a long time ago. If Accor makes you pre-pay and not take a hold other than incidentals when you arrive then that's great, i'm used to crown/hyatt policy.

  •  

    When is signed up, it says I'm just a member. How do I see these benefits? Do i need to ask for it when I actually arrive at the hotel?

    E.g. for a Sofitel room. The room upgrade is not free at all.

    •  

      From my experience, the upgrade, free drinks vouchers, gift and late checkout at Sofitel and MGallery are applied automatically. If you are concerned, you can always request these items in the comments field when you book, or contact them beforehand.

      •  

        Thanks mate. Gave them a call. They said the upgrade was "conditional" upon availability. They should at least give free brekkie

  •  

    Also there is some text in the T&C saying the card is only sent to you after your first stay:

    The Le Club Accorhotels Loyalty card is sent to the Member after their
    first stay at a participating hotel, and within 3 weeks

    Does this application process negate that line? Also there are some funny conditions to using the club:

    The commitments or rules to be followed by the Member to avoid being
    excluded from the Program are:
    – to always be polite

    • +1 vote

      nevermind, it says at the end:

      Your Le Club Accorhotels card will be sent directly to your home address after your first stay at one of our hotels. Until then, simply state your membership number when you arrive at the hotel.

    Nothing against the OP, but having had this last year I attempted to use it in Singapore.

    The hotel refused to accept it. None of the 'platinum benefits' were provided, nor did they even want to give me the organisation contracted rates I should have been eligible for.

    I complained to Le Club Accor and they pretty much just gave me a stock standard "we will check it out" answer and then never did anything.

    I'll be sticking to their competition who actually do recognise their own services.

      What "platinum benefits" were you expecting??

      Room upgrade & drink is only offered for Platinum guests at a Sofitel property.

      With the other hotels in the chain, a priority desk, double points & late check-out are the only benefits offered.

      As for organization contracted rates,usually booking in advance with corporate code and valid ID upon check-in is required.
      (general statement, not assuming you did or didn't meet those requirements)

    • +1 vote

      You do realise "platinum benefits" are only provided at Sofitel, Pullman & MGallery hotels right? What would you expect to get in a say Ibis hotel? Room upgrade to another of the exact same type of room?
      Considering there are no Sofitel, Pullman or MGallery hotels in Singapore (yet), I think hardly the fault of the hotel that they didn't provide something they weren't obligated to provide in the first place!
      You are certainly allowed to complain that the program is stupid and worthless because the benefits are ridiculously restrictive, which most people would agree with you. However you are complaining on a completely invalid point.

    •  

      I am guessing you were at the Singapore Ibis in Bugis. It's a budget hotel and I think the only 'benefit I've ever got there is a few extra complimentary bottles of water on a hot day

      menage a troi?

  •  

    Don't know if anyone can help with this. So if i wanted to book a room, do i deliberately book a standard room in the hope of an upgrade? Or because they will see 0 points and "platinum" will they play the "subject to availability" card?

    • +1 vote

      Hmm.. This is a good point and I'm really curious as to what will happen. Maybe a particular hotel can simply see their status?

      If this is indeed the case, the whole exercise is pretty pointless.
      I do however have full intentions to tell my friends this evening over drinks about how I'm a Platinum member.

      •  

        as far as i can tell, if you're in the club, you're in the club and should be treated accordingly. However that's just using logic which can sometimes lead to problems. Just gotta try it i guess.

      • +1 vote

        From personal experience, even though it says "upgrade upon availability", over the past year I've been upgraded at each MGallery and Sofitel I've stayed at, in Aus, NZ and Asia (including my first stay, where my points/stays weere at 0), with one exception. Generally you can expect to be upgraded to the next tier - so choose your room accordingly. The one time I wasn't provided with Platinum entitlements and a few other things went wrong on a 4 night trip to a Sofitel in China, I was promptly refunded AUD $930.00 upon complaining to the manager - the full cost of my stay!!! That definitely made signing up for Platinum statusof value.

        •  

          Thank you all for the help. I suppose the only way to find out is to book a room. If anyone books anything in the near future, let us know how it goes.

        •  

          Your experience is certainly better than mine, and the norm from what I've read on the Internet. I have heard that the Sofitel in Brisbane has just started recognising Platinum Accor status again, but your mileage will vary from hotel to hotel.

  •
