You'll also receive additional perks, depending on the brand. Silver status also allows you to earn up to 31 points per 10 euros spent at participating Accor hotels. To maintain your membership status, you must requalify every year.

If you maintain your status by staying 30 nights or accruing 7,000 points each calendar year, you will keep receiving Gold tier benefits.

Platinum

Benefits include:

  • Ability to earn and use points
  • Free room upgrades

The advantages of Platinum status – the highest tier within Le Club AccorHotels – are awarded once you have stayed 60 nights or have earned 14,000 points within a calendar year. As a Platinum member, you can enjoy all the benefits of the Classic, Silver and Gold levels. Plus, you'll have guaranteed room availability at select participating properties if you make your reservation two days prior to your planned arrival date, and you'll receive up to 44 points for every 10 euros spent at Accor-affiliated hotels. As a Platinum member, you'll also get executive lounge access (when available). To maintain these Platinum benefits, you must meet minimum stay requirements annually.

Accor Business Plus

Benefits include:

  • Ability to earn and use points
  • Priority check-in/out
  • Member discounts

The Accor Business Plus membership was designed specifically for business travelers. If you sign up for Business Plus, which costs 170 euros (about $198) per year, you are automatically granted Classic status. In addition to the benefits of Le Club AccorHotels Classic membership, you'll be awarded with reduced nightly rates at all participating properties (up to 20 percent; based on brand), guaranteed room availability and rental car discounts. You'll also benefit from late checkout times (if available). Your membership must be renewed every year.

Ibis BUSINESS Card

Benefits include:

  • Ability to earn and use points
  • Free room upgrades
  • Priority check-in/out
  • Free amenities
  • Member discounts

The ibis BUSINESS Card benefits travelers who prefer ibis hotels over other Accor-affiliated properties. If you sign up for the card for an annual fee of 90 euros (approximately $105), you are automatically elevated to Gold status within Le Club AccorHotels and afforded those privileges, along with 10 percent discounts on up to two ibis rooms and on-site restaurant charges (with the exception of ibis properties in China). You'll also be guaranteed room availability at most ibis hotels if you make your reservation at least two days before your planned arrival date. Keeping your ibis BUSINESS Card status and benefits requires renewing your membership annually.
