With more than 2,700 hotels and 20 brands in its network, AccorHotels is a major hotel chain by any measure. Of that number, however, only around 320 are in the Americas, and fewer still are in the U.S. Which explains why the company’s Le Club loyalty program gets less attention from U.S. travelers than other large hotel programs.
Through December 26, members of AccorHotels’ Le Club program can earn up to 10,000 bonus points for qualifying stays as follows:
- 1 stay of 2 nights or more = 500 points
- 2 stays of 2 nights or more = 3,000 points
- 3 stays of 2 nights or more = 6,000 points
- 4 stays of 2 nights or more = 10,000 points
Eligible bookings must be made by October 12.
Deal or No Deal
For multiple stays, the bonus is a substantial value-add. The question for travelers based in the U.S., where AccorHotels’ coverage is skimpy, is whether participating in Le Club makes sense as part of a long-term loyalty strategy.
For travelers to and within Europe, where more than half of AccorHotels’ properties are located, Le Club offers plenty of options for earning and redeeming points. The company is also strong in the Asia-Pacific region, with more than 705 hotels. If you travel regularly in these areas, Le Club, and this promotion, may be right for you. Otherwise you’ll be better served by a program with a network that provides a closer geographical fit with your travel patterns.
