This chart shows the cashback percentage for Accor hotels by elite level in their reward program “Le Club Accorhotels.” It shows what you earn back in Le Club Accorhotels points value as a share of dollars spent on paid nights. Invert the percentage rate to calculate the average number of paid nights required for one free reward night at the same property. E.g., at “Classic” level, 1 / 5.0% or 20 nights are needed to earn one free night at a similar hotel.
There is no current credit card offering bonus points in the program.
Le Club Accorhotels points are awarded on hotel stay spend at a rate of 2.5 points per Euro spent. Points are awarded at this same rate at all brands, with a few exceptions. Those exceptions can be found on the Earn Le Club Accorhotels Points page. Most notably, Ibis Budget hotels are excluded as well as all Ibis properties in mainland China. These properties are indicated when booking through the hotel websites.
On top of the base points, Silver elite members earn a 20% bonus, Gold members 40% and top-level Platinum member a 70% bonus. Elite members also receive additional benefits during hotel stays. Benefits include room upgrades, late checkout and free internet. The top level of Platinum gives access to the executive lounge at relevant properties (generally only the higher end Pullman and Sofitel hotels). Read more on Accor’s Status Privileges page.
The value of points at all Accor properties is 2.2¢ per point.
Instead of splitting hotels by category with different reward night pricing (as is common with most hotel loyalty schemes), Le Club points have a fixed value of 40 Euro per 2K points. This is redeemed directly against the room cost when booking reward nights.
Elite status is offered in Le Club Accorhotels after members stay a certain number of nights or earn a certain number of base points within a calendar year. There is no qualification based on total numbers of “stays” as is common with many other hotel programs.
To earn “Silver” status, a member must stay 10 nights or earn 2,500 points and to move up to “Gold”, 30 nights or 10,000 points.. For top level “Platinum” status 60 nights or 25,000 points are required.
As described on the Le Club Accorhotels Brands page, the program has 10 hotel brands. These brands have an overall average star rating of 3.5 across the portfolio of around 2700 hotels. The Ibis family (Ibis, Ibis Budget and Ibis Styles) with ratings around 3 stars are the budget end of the range, and make up almost half of the total hotel portfolio. Mercure offers a sizeable mid-range, with an average of 3.5 stars, and Novotel an upper mid-range offering at 4 stars.
The upper end is covered by the much smaller, but global, brands of M Gallery and Pullman (both with 4.5 star average properties) and the luxury Sofitel brand, at 4.8 stars.
Accor is a European focused hotel chain, with around 1800 of their 2700 hotels located there. They have expanded strongly in Asia in recent years and now have around 400 hotels in the region, well spread across the different brands.
They also have diverse brand presence in Oceania and South America. Unlike most other major hotel loyalty programs, there is very little focus on the North America region, with only around 40 hotels there.
Unlike most other loyalty programs, Le Club Accorhotels does not use hotel categories for their properties. Instead, reward points have a fixed value against the room rate of 40 Euros per 2K points.
This equates to an average number of points per night needed at all brands except the Ibis brands of 6.8K points. At Ibis and Ibis Styles this is reduced to 4.4K and at Ibis Budget hotels to 3.6K.
