I just got the email today and am pleased to learn that Fairmont is now merging its program with Le Club Accor. We like Fairmont but don't often stay there for a number of reasons. I am Le Club Platinum since forever and am a regular at many Sofitels around the world. My wife insisted on our staying at Fairmont in San Francisco next June when we will be attending the Wagner Ring Cycle at SFO. I am now in possession of an email(which I have saved) informing me that this stay will certainly get me Le Club Accor points! As we are spending the first 120 days of the new year on a cruise, I was afraid for my Platinum status but 10 days at Fairmont will get me most of the way there. Thank heaven for revenue based status!
