Places By Le Club AccorHotels

The Places By Le Club AccorHotels application allows members to earn points for earning badges. Badges are earned by completing virtual check-ins while you are staying at an AccorHotels properties.

When you are staying at an Accor property, you can open the App and register a check-in within the application. Once your stay has been regiestered as an eligible stay in your Le Club AccorHotels account, the ‘check’in’ will be validated, and the stay will be counted toward your badge earning.

As the approval provess requires the stay to post to your account, you do actually have to be staying at the property for it to count. You can’t just pop in for a coffee and have it count!

The application is avaiable from within Facebook, and is available for both iPhones and Android based phones. When using the apps on your phone, you will still need to authenticate through a Facebook account – there is no escape from needing a Facebook account.

When you first sign up to the Places App, you need to connect to your Le Club AccorHotels account. This is so they can check that you were staying at the hotel, and also deposit any points you obtain from badges.

Checking In

Once the application is set up you can go ahead and check-in to a hotel you are staying at. Normally you would do this while staying at the hotel, although you can check-in for up to a month after the stay.

The applkication awards Badges, and these are based on achieving a certain number of check-ins  against a number of criteria. This may include staying a certain number of times at a particular brand, or in a certain country. The following table lists the various Badges that are available.
