Since I seem to now be visiting Accor hotels on a relatively industrial scale (around 50 different Accor hotels a year), I thought that I’d post more information about them on this page. There are some things about Accor that I don’t like (that new Ibis room being rolled out is I think a mistake, and I’m glad a couple of their hotels told me they were concerned as well), but overall, I think they’re the best hotel chain out there. Well, after Ovolo Hotels, but they’re much smaller.
My favourite brand within Accor is Ibis Styles, quirky and irreverent, I like that. I also adore their Polish hotels, and I’m on target to have visited every single Accor hotel in Poland by the end of 2022. They should do a badge for me….. Well, or offer a free alcoholic beverage, I’m easy.
Richard suggested compiling a welcome amenity page which I’ve been keeping updated with his and my visits. I’m also pleased with Accor for my wireless headphones and for confirming my platinum status (OK, I need to get out more, or perhaps stay in more, whichever works here…) given the health crisis we’re currently in. I mention this as their loyalty scheme is also one of the best, particularly if monitoring the offers that they regularly send out.
I had multiple Accor stays which had to be cancelled given the international crisis of 2020, but every single Accor hotel offered a refund willingly. One admitted they were struggling so I just postponed my stay there rather than cancelled, but having an e-mail address to contact every hotel made things much easier.
