Le Club AccorHotels awarded "Best hotel loyalty program of the year" at the 2016 Freddie Awards

For the second year running, Le Club AccorHotels, the AccorHotels group loyalty program, was acclaimed at the Freddie Awards as the best hotel loyalty program of the year in Europe/Africa and in the Middle East/Asia/Oceania.

This award notably honors the member-only exclusive offers developed in 2015: “Only On”, a new rate guaranteeing a discount of up to 10%; the new Elite Experiences, especially the year-round access using points to events at the AccorHotels Arena in the Le Club AccorHotels box; the development of new Dream Stays (guests can spend points on dream deals in emblematic hotels in the UK, USA, Italy, France, etc.).

Being awarded at the Freddie Awards for the second year running is a great token of recognition for the Le Club AccorHotels loyalty program and for the teams: these awards directly reflect our guests’ satisfaction, which is an absolute priority to us. With more than 18,000 new members every day, Le Club AccorHotels has been significantly enriched in 2015 with new offers and exclusive advantages which, more than ever before, put guest recognition and service personnalization at the heart of the program” commented AccorHotels’ Vice President Customer Experience and Loyalty Emanuel Baudart.

Le Club AccorHotels also won awards in the following categories:

  • “Best Promotional Campaign” in Europe/Africa and in the Middle East/Asia/Oceania, for the generous May 2015 promotion which allowed members to win up to €200 in points;
  • “Best Customer Service” in Europe/Africa, thanks to the service center which answers guests in 11 languages

By voting for Le Club Accorhotels, travelers in Europe/Africa and in the Middle East/Asia/Oceania have rewarded the generosity of the only hotel loyalty program which allows them to spend their points without any expiring date or availability restrictions, all over the world. 

Created in 1988, the Freddie Awards give loyalty program members an opportunity to vote for the airline and hotel chain programs that, in their view, offer them the best rewards. They vote online for their favorite programs in three geographical areas: Europe/Africa, the Middle East/ Asia/Oceania and the Americas. This year, over 3.7 million voters cast Freddie Awards ballots.
