Ring in the festive season and New Year by gifting a hotel membership

Say Merry Christmas with discounts on the food & beverage bill, complimentary and discounted room night stays and access to the Swimming Pool or Gymansium at your favourite hotel. Indulge your loved ones and play Santa by gifting a hotel membership this Christmas and New Year.

Last year, my wife and I threw a small Christmas party to celebrate with a few friends before we got ready to welcome the new  year. It was a fun evening celebrated in festive spirit. In addition to the great time and memories we created,  we were delighted to receive a hotel membership as a gift.

I thought the Accor Plus membership was the perfect gift to welcome the new year – a gift one can use multiple times throughout the membership year. A hotel membership offers a number of card benefits valid for an entire year and a series of one-time use certificates.

The first time we used our hotel membership was within the first week of receiving the gift. The Pullman New Delhi Aerocity was hosting a New Year bash at Pling, the elegant, sensuous and tranquil lounge-bar. The hotel was offering a 25% discount to all Accor Plus members for reserving a table at the New Year party. I distinctly remember booking a table for 10 and receiving at 25% on the package. Our membership came in really handy while enjoying the festive season to the tee!

Besides the festive season, we used our membership on several occasions like our birthdays and anniversary. We went out for dinner with our parents and children on our anniversary and used the Accor Plus certificates entitling us to a 40% discount and a complimentary cake. We were a table of 8 and saved a grand sum amounting to about Rs. 9,000. This was actually the first time I saw the real value of the Accor Plus membership.

We gave the room night stay certificate to our daughter so that she could enjoy a relaxed staycation at the hotel with her friends. My daughter and her friends couldn’t stop raving about the time they had at the hotel – the room, the pool and the food. They had a great time at no extra cost.

The room night stay offered by Accor Plus is valid across Asia Pacific. Unfortunately, we were unable to use the membership overseas this time. However, I plan to renew the membership in the coming year and avail the complimentary room night stay during our holiday over the summer.
