Looking to get a reasonably cheap hotel stay at a decent brand where the loyalty program is mostly worthless? Boy do I have a deal for you. Accor Hotels is running a sale through 28 August 2012 offering up to 50% off on hotels in most of the regions they operate.
The stay dates for the promo vary and the 50% thing will vary based on the specific property but I just booked a room in Singapore for this coming weekend at just over 40% off after taxes and such were included. Considering the consistency of the product Accor offers and the price point for the room (~$110/night for 2 guests) I’m very happy with that deal.
That said, I don’t really consider the points I’ll accrue or the other aspects of the Le Club AccorHotels loyalty program to be all that compelling. The points expire too quickly and the redemption value isn’t all that significant. So I just ignore the points side of this deal and look at the bottom line. The rate is still too good to pass up. Some days it isn’t all about the points. This is one of them.
- Hotel internet wants to be free, and one brand is making it happen
- Accor changes name, rules for loyalty program
