Accor Limitless Tiers

The best information about Accor Limitless and the loyalty status tiers is of course at their own web-site.

The status levels are Classic, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond.

Classic goes to anyone who just signs up, silver is anyone staying for 10 nights, gold is anyone staying for 30 nights and platinum is anyone staying for 60 nights in one year. There are also revenue spent ways to earn status, silver can be got when spending €800 in the year, gold for €2,800 in the year, platinum for €5,600 and diamond for €10,400. There’s no way to earn diamond through the number of nights spent.

Silver is a handy status as it gets everyone in the room a welcome drink and platinum gets a couple of suite upgrades every year (I spent mine this year at the Warsaw Sofitel). A lot of the benefits are soft benefits, in terms of being offered an upgrade or just a better room, but it’s hard to quantify those.

The sweet spot is actually silver, it’s worth trying to get ten nights as that gives the welcome drink and usually secures a better room and also late check-out. Gold status gets early check-in or late check-out which can be useful, whereas platinum status gets both. Platinum status also gets free breakfast in a number of Asian markets, another useful benefit that it’s a shame hasn’t been extended to the European markets.

A lot of the listed benefits are only for certain hotel chains, such as free drinks from the mini-bar, free newspapers and free phone calls, so they’re of marginal use to most people unless staying at high-end hotels.
