Le Club AccorHotels Introduces Fairmont & Swissotel Benefits For Gold & Platinum Members


Accor acquired Toronto based FRHI earlier this year that includes three iconic brands (Fairmont, Swissotel & Raffles).


Le Club AccorHotels has not integrated these programs to its loyalty program (and seems that nothing is going to change in 2017) but now Gold & Platinum members can sign up for “status match” (might be open for everyone) and receive certain benefits at Fairmont & Swissotel hotels.

The Accor shareholders approved the purchase of FHRI on Tuesday (read more here) and the FHRI brands of Fairmont, Raffles and Swissotel were immediately available for bookings on website.

There are absolutely no benefits of booking these hotels on Accor’s website beyond the apparent Best Price Guarantee that promises to match the lower price and give you another 10% off (if someone ever manages to looks at the claim at the hotel).

Swissotel Circle Award Booking Woes: Case Swissotel Amsterdam


Last year, I wrote about Swissotel Circle Eleva status offer for Etihad Gold members (access here) that is still valid and how to get an award certificate after just one stay (access here).

Swissotel Circle Award Booking Woes U

I had this one Swissotel award sitting on my account for close to a year and it was about to expire in July. A bunch of friends were going to Amsterdam to celebrate the Kings Day and I had decided to join them. The hotel prices in Amsterdam were very high on that weekend, however.

Swissotel Circle Eleva Status + One Free Night Award After One Stay

1 Comment

Back in June, I wrote about Swissotel’s offer for Etihad’s Guest Gold Elite members that could get Circle Eleva status just after one stay (you can access the article here).


The offer is actually even better than that, as one LoyaltyLobby reader emailed to me at the time. You will also get the free night award for becoming Eleva member after one stay that would otherwise require 20 nights.

Swissotel Best Rate Guarantee Experience


Recently, I took advantage of the Swissotel Circle offer for Eleva status after one stay for Etihad Guest Gold members (you can read more about this offer here). Getting the status requirement required one stay and I thought that I would do it while in Bangkok.


I don’t have good discount offers for Swissotel hotels, so I decided to put their Best Rate Guarantee program to test. It offers 50% discount for the first night, if you find a lower rate from a third party site with the same terms and conditions.

Swissotel Circle Eleva Status After One Stay For Etihad Guest Gold Elite Members (And Maybe For Others Too)


Swissotel Circle has a fast track offer for Eleva status after just one stay for Etihad Airways Guest frequent flyer program’s Gold Elite members.

Edit: This article has been corrected to reflect that this Swissotel account upgrade is ONLY available for Etihad Guest Gold ELITE members. 


Eleva status usually requires 20 nights, but this fast track offer only one. There are some other offers for Eleva status after three nights for some bank credit card holders. You can access this offer on Etihad’s website here and on Swissotel’s website here.
