In addition, if you’re staying at a resort property in Asia or Oceania, you’ll get the following additional benefits through the MyResorts program:
An exclusive, value-for-money beverage experience (fee)
Access experiences for kids, from fun activities to delicious meals and more (fee).
Connect to complimentary internet on all of your devices.
Enjoy certain “essential room comforts” (for example, complimentary use of executive lounge when your room is not yet available, early check-in, or late checkout) when arriving or departing outside the standard times.
Enjoy an upgrade of your room experience (subject to availability).
Access to a single point of contact and support during your stay at participating resorts.
Extend the benefits linked to your Platinum status to only 1 guest who is staying at the same participating resort at the same time and for the same duration as the member who has booked 1 room under the guest’s name or is staying under the same reservation as the member.
Complimentary surprise gifts and exclusive offers upon check-in
ibis BUSINESS Card
Accor also offers a fee-based ibis BUSINESS Card for €90 (~$105) annually. Benefits include a 10% room and restaurant/bar discount, guaranteed room availability up to 48 hours before your stay, and all the benefits of ALL Gold status at over 2,000 ibis, ibis Styles, and ibis budget hotels.
Value of ALL – Accor Live Limitless Elite Status
ALL Silver offers little in the way of hotel benefits, but some of the selling points of this tier include late checkout (subject to availability) and a welcome drink.
ALL Gold gets you category room upgrades (subject to availability, excluding suites), a welcome amenity upon check-in, and early check-in or late checkout.
ALL Platinum is where it really starts to get interesting because you’re entitled to 2 Suite Night Upgrades, as well as premium Wi-Fi, early check-in, late checkout, complimentary breakfast every day at Asia Pacific properties, access to Executive Lounges (excludes Fairmont Gold), complimentary soft drinks from the minibar, ironing services, and hotel restaurant and bar benefits.
ALL Diamond is the top-tier status that gets you complimentary breakfast on weekends worldwide (in addition to daily breakfast at Asia Pacific properties), 4 dining and spa reward vouchers (worth €25 (~$29) each), and the ability to gift someone Gold status.
Bottom Line: ALL Platinum is probably the best tier to pursue. You’ll get the most incremental perks, including breakfast in Asia Pacific, check-in and checkout benefits, as well as access to Executive Lounges and 2 Suite Night Upgrades.
Earning ALL – Accor Live Limitless Elite Status
ALL – Accor Live Limitless status is earned on a calendar-year basis. You can earn all elite status tiers except Diamond status based on stays in a calendar year. ALL Diamond requires a significant amount of eligible spending during your stays to qualify and cannot be achieved through stays alone.
For example, if you want to qualify for Platinum status, you must either stay at least 60 nights in a calendar year or make €5,600 (~$6,520) in eligible purchases during your stays every year. That’s because you’ll earn 25 status points for every €10 (~$12) spent. You need 14,000 status points to qualify for ALL Platinum.
Stays at Mama Shelter, Adagio, Adagio Access, ibis, and ibis Styles are not eligible to accrue status points.
If you generally tend to book fewer stays but spend more at the property during each stay, it might be easier to qualify based on status points via purchases.
On the other hand, if you tend to book lots of stays but spend less during each stay, it’ll probably be easier to qualify based on nights.
|Elite Tier||# of Nights||Status Points|
Here’s how many status points you’ll earn by brand:
|Adagio Access, Jo&Joe, and Greet||Mantra, Peppers, BreakFree, Art Series, and Adagio||Ibis, Ibis Styles, and Mama Shelter||All Other Accor Brands|
|5 status points per €10 (~$12) spent||10 status points per €10 (~$12) spent||12.5 status points per €10 (~$12) spent||25 status points per €10 (~$12) spent|
With all that being said, here’s the minimum required spending to qualify for each elite tier, assuming you are earning 25 status points per €10 (~$12) spent.
|Elite Tier||Minimum Required Spending|
|Silver|| €800 (~$930)|
|Gold|| €2,800 (~$3,260)|
|Platinum|| €5,600 (~$6,520)|
|Diamond|| €10,400 (~$12,100)|
Once you’ve earned elite status, you’ll keep it for the remainder of the current calendar year and through the end of the next year.
