What’s up with 10AM check out these days? For most guests, the hotel experience just ain’t what it once was. But for elite hotel members, things are pretty delightful. Platinum members with the Accor Hotels and soon to be merged Fairmont program receive welcome drinks, upgrades, late check out, lounge access and other perks – making it a status worth achieving. Here’s how to do it with just 5 stays and €90…

AccorHotels will be the sole program for Fairmont, Raffles, Pullman, MGallery, Sofitel and other top brands in the near future. Anyone staying frequently with these brands has a unique and exciting opportunity to secure top tier frequent guest status, for less than a tenth of the usually required stays.

YouHaveBeenUpgraded, a leading German blog points out that there’s a shortcut to Accor Gold status, and Fairmont Premier. Combined, the two will create Accor Platinum through 2019! For €90, anyone can purchase an Ibis Business Card (not a credit card). This will grant Accor Gold status. Once that’s complete, you just need five (single night) stays at Fairmont. The stays must be separated by at least one night.

This opportunity is valid from now thru June 2018. In July the programs will merge and the tricks will be over. If you want AccorHotels Platinum for 5 nights in any Fairmont, and €90 – opposed to 60 nights and spending requirements – this is your move. Stay five nights with Fairmont before the end of June, get the Ibis Business Card for €90, sit back – relax and enjoy your status through 2019.

Just remember to register for their program and use your frequent guest number. Perhaps start in January to keep things fresh. When the two combine, those with Accor Gold and Fairmont Premier will win – big time. Welcome drink, upgrade, late check out, club access and other amenities sounding nice right now?
