Extra, extra! A rede de hotéis Accor acaba de anunciar aos seus associados que adquiriu as redes Raffles, Fairmont e Swissôtel, todas voltadas para o segmento de luxo. Eis o comunicado recebido em inglês:
We are delighted to share with you the announcement of the forthcoming combination of AccorHotels and Fairmont Raffles Hotels International. This unique group, which is currently present in 34 countries, comprises three emblematic luxury hotel brands: Raffles, Fairmont and Swissôtel.
As a member of Le Club AccorHotels, this merger will give you access to even more exceptional addresses including legendary properties such as Raffles in Singapore, The Plaza in New York, The Savoy in London and Le Royal Monceau in Paris. Fairmont, Raffles and Swissôtel together represent 43,000 rooms in 115 hotels around the world.
Le Club AccorHotels and the loyalty programs of the Fairmont, Raffles and Swissôtel brands are among the most generous and innovative in the global hospitality sector. Our brands and locations are highly complementary and we want to make the most of these two programs to offer you ever more exclusive services and privileges.
This merger will take a few months to finalize. For the time being, your Le Club AccorHotels program will not change. Your status, advantages and bookings remain the same. No changes will be made in the way you manage your account or book your stays in our hotels.
Because your loyalty deserves our full attention, we will of course keep you informed of the key stages of this exciting project over the coming months. In the meantime, we remain at your service in our hotels, on our accorhotels.com website, our mobile app and via our customer care centers.
Se a Accor já tinha marcas demais, agora então…realmente impressiona a adição de 43.000 quartos para a rede, além de hotéis emblemáticos como o The Plaza em Nova Iorque e o Savoy em Londres.
Agora fiquei com a pulga atrás da orelha com a seguinte frase: “for the time being your Le Club AccorHotels program will not change” (por enquanto não haverá mudanças no seu programa Le Club AccorHotels). “Por enquanto” é…já estava sonhando em pagar minha estadia no The Plaza com vouchers =) Vamos aguardar pra ver.
