I have Gold. I get some nice upgrades, most recently in the Novotel Queenstown – to the finest room in the hotel, no less! A massive suite apartment with lake views, a kitchen and big marble bathroom, living room, huge bed, 2 TVs etc etc.
I’ve stayed in Accor in NZ, Australia, France, UK, USA, Singapore, Laos, Vietnam, India and Indonesia and usually find them very good. Where they have Club Floors, I always book them as my bete noir in hotels is children and they are usually mercifully absent from Club floors due to the extra cost!
Very nice! Hope you had time to appreciate it. Most of the time when I do get any upgrades I’m arriving late and leaving early 🙁 I’d like to try out Novotel Queenstown – has a great location.
As a side question – given you’ve been to various countries, do you notice any regional differences in the quality of the Accor properties? I’ve used a few Accor properties previously but only really starting taking notice of loyalty programmes in 2016.
