As we mentioned earlier today, we'd be bringing you the details of Marriott's latest systemwide promo that will run for the first part of 2018. We've seen IHG's, SPG's, Hilton's and now this is the Marriott offering. Members will earn 2,000 bonus Rewards points per stay starting with their second stay. If that 2nd stay or beyond includes a weekend night (Fri/Sat or Thu/Fri in the Middle East) Marriott will add an additional 1,000 bonus points in for a total of 3,000 bonus points per stay. The bonus maxes out at 50,000 points during the promotional period. As we always say, register for this offer now so that you don't forget about it in the future and end up having two Marriott stays and not getting any bonus points!

Earn up to 4,000 Honors Bonus Points per stay at Hilton Hotels Worldwide from Jan 1 to Apr 30


We are quickly learning about all the major hotel promotions for the first part of 2018! We already know what IHG and SPG are offering. Later today we'll post Marriott's new offer but in this post we look Hilton's offer for the first third of 2018. Hilton was on a roll in 2017 by offering double points all year long with additional bonuses on top of the double points and all their promotions covered all hotels globally except for some in China. They continue this momentum into 2018 with this offer that awards up to 4,000 bonus points per stay at all hotels Worldwide except for Hampton by Hilton hotels in mainland China. The bonus awards 2,000 bonus points per stay, no matter what. Complete 5 stays and Hilton will throw in an additional 10,000 points which works out to 4,000 points per stay. Rinse and repeat for stays after that. This is an awesome bonus for those who complete a lot of one night stays at locations that aren't expensive but shouldn't be overlooked for any Hilton stay as any bonuses are always good.

Offer details
Earn 2,000 Bonus Honor Points per stay at Hilton Hotels Worldwide. Earn an additional 10,000 bonus points for every 5 stays completed during the promotional period. Full details, online  registrations and booking (Registration is required) Jan 1- Apr 30, 18

Starwood Preferred Guest - Double Starpoints starting with your 2nd stay in Q1 2018 (plus 500 bonus points on Weekends)

Starwood has released the details of the next systemwide promotion for SPG members. Registration is now open for the offer titled Great Weeks, Grand Weekends which will award Double Starpoints starting with your second stay. You'll also receive 500 bonus Starpoints if that 2nd stay or beyond includes a weekend night  (Friday or Saturday, Thursday or Friday in the Middle East). This offer is somewhat weaker than what SPG has been running lately seeing that it starts with the second stay, although that requirement is typical of SPG's first quarter promotions and once again they have introduced a participating hotel list which means there are hotels that will not be offering the bonus points. Nonetheless you should register for this promotion right away even if you don't have any stays planned to ensure you earn any possible bonus points on future stays.

Offer details
Earn Double Starpoints on stays at participating Starwood Hotels Worldwide starting with your second stay. Earn an additional 500 bonus Starpoints for stays that include a weekend night (Fri/Sat or Thu/Fri in the Middle East) starting with your second stay.

A great new bonus from Voila Hotel Rewards for the New Year! Right now you can earn 5,000 bonus points per stay until the end of April. 5,000 points is equal to roughly a $45 return and that doesn't take into account your base points earning and the fact that VHR allows you to stack all of their promotions which means you can also earn the 30% bonus that is running until the end of February and the Double Elite Status Credit and Double Points (for 3+ nights stays) that runs until the end of January. Say you have a $200 one night stay in January - you can earn 2,000 base points + 30% bonus points + 5,000 bonus points for 7,600 points or almost $70 in points value.

It's Official - Fairmont President's Club will end on July 2, 2018, to be integrated into Le Club AccorHotels

The question around these two programs has not been if they will merge, but when they will merge.

We now have confirmation on the absorption of FPC into Le Club AccorHotels from the email sent to us today from Fairmont:



Fairmont President’s Club has enjoyed the pleasure of welcoming members to our family of hotels for nearly 20 years. Today we are delighted to share the news that as of July 2018, Le Club AccorHotels will welcome us into its world, an award-winning program with a remarkable collection of luxury brands, including Raffles, Sofitel, Swissôtel, MGallery, and Pullman.

On July 2, 2018, your membership in Fairmont President’s Club will merge with your existing Le Club AccorHotels membership, making your member experience even more rewarding than it is today. With the simplicity of one loyalty card, you will soon have more earning power, more benefits and more rewards.

Rest assured that while your loyalty program is changing, the personal recognition and familiar perks you have come to appreciate while staying at Fairmont Hotels & Resorts will not change. We are committed to exceeding your expectations on each and every stay.

It is important to know that between now and July 2, 2018, your Fairmont President’s Club program will not change. Your annual membership status will renew as usual on March 1, 2018, based on your 2017 activity and stay history. Your status in Le Club AccorHotels will be updated to reflect the integration of your Fairmont President’s Club status (as of March 1, 2018) and boosted by your qualifying nights and stays with both programs in 2018. 

This means that as of July 2, 2018 Fairmont President's Club will come to an end. It will be the first of two hotel programs that will disappear over the next few years - SPG will be next when it is combined with Marriott Rewards in 2019.

Here is the timeline of the integration of the programs:


The biggest question that most Fairmont President's Club members will have will be around elite status. Many of us have thanks to the accelerated offers from our Platinum Card from Amex or Visa Infinite Privilege cards. Your status will be matched in Le Club AccorHotels as follows:

Also if you have status with Le Club AccorHotel's they'll look at the combination of status between the two programs to offer status as follows:
The big winner in that list seems to be FPC Premier + Le Club Gold as they get boosted to Platinum status!

One of the beloved benefits of having status with Fairmont President's Club was all the free room and upgrade certificates you'd get each year that you qualified for status. Those will be awarded for one more year, 2018, after which they appear to disappear based on the charts of benefits:


When reading the FAQ's of the integration this is confirmed:
Basically they are saying you'll get an upgrade if you have Le Club AccorHotels Gold or Platinum status if there is availability - but only to the next best room, not suites like FPC offered.

Stays at Fairmont Hotels after July 2nd will earn Le Club AccorHotels points at the currently published earn rate:

Classic members earn 25 points per €10
Silver members earn 31 points per €10
Gold members earn 37 points per €10
Platinum members earn 44 points per €10

If you are familiar with the FPC program you'll know it wasn't points based however they would award airline miles from several airline programs for your stays - typically 500 miles per stay.  Le Club AccorHotels is partnered with many more airlines than FPC and his will mean that you will more than likely be able to earn more miles in the new program at Fairmont Hotels, especially for stays with more than one night. Most conversions to airlines run at 4,000 Le Club AccorHotels Points to 2,000 airline miles. This means spending 160EUR at Fairmont hotels which, depending on the location, could be achieved with a one night stay so the airline mileage earning definitely gets boosted with the integration.

Overall the integration seems pretty straight forward with status matching and stand alone benefits outside of what was awarded each year by FPC. Those will be greatly missed by all elite FPC members, especially the suite upgrades however there is the distinct possibility that elite members may come out ahead with more upgrades since you won't be limited to the several certificates that Fairmont provided.
