Business travel: AccorHotels enriches its subscription card offer and renames it “Business Plus”

To cater for the specific requirements of business travelers, AccorHotels has enriched its international, multi-brand subscription program for business guests, AccorHotels Favorite Guest Business, and renamed it Business Plus.
