Free Accor Platinum Status (Again)

Accor Hotels again has a “targeted” offer for top-tier status in their A|Club program.  The offer is intended for Citi Premier Miles World Mastercard holders in the United Arab Emirates, but registration should work for most anyone.

Accor A|Club Platinum Offer

Benefits of Accor Platinum status include:

  • 100% A|Club Points Bonus, per Stay
  • Dedicated Customer Service Line

And for stays with Sofitel, Pullman, MGallery hotels:

  • Welcome Drink and Gift
  • 4:00 PM Late Check-Out, upon request
  • Room Guarantee, If reserved at least 3 days before arrival
  • Room Upgrade, upon request–assuming availability

To be honest, I think this is a pretty good deal for both the customer and the company.  A Club members are able to enjoy basic hotel loyalty perks, including welcome amenities and upgrades at Sofitel, Pullman, and MGallery properties, which is a bonus and a heckuva lot better than nothing at all.

Also, this is beneficial to the hotel as this newfound-status is certain to draw in customers who would otherwise never stay with the Accor brand.

Last November I got in on this offer, and will be anxious (in both senses of the word) to try out my newly-minted status.  In fact, the Sofitel Chicago Water Tower Hotel is a member of Virtuoso hotels, which feature  added guaranteed amenities for booking through them, just like American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts.  For more information on Virtuoso, see Lucky’s post (specifically the hotel part), as he is currently employed for them.

So around the time when I am in town for the Chicago Seminars, expect a report on my experience as a Platinum member with Accor hotels.

Tip of the Hat to Mr. Gary.
