Le Club AccorHotels Platinum members now get access to the lounges in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. These hotels join Sofitels in the rest of the world in providing access to the lounges.
On top of the ability to access the lounges, the terms and conditions of the access to the lounges now come with a offer that is the lounge is unavailable, the member will be entitled to a full breakfast, and 1000 points.
The provision for lounge access for Le Club Hotels Platinum members was written into the terms and conditions when the program was revamped in 2013. While the Pullman hotels in Australia were providing this access, the Sofitels in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne had gained an exemption from the requirement.
Brisbane was the first to provide access, and the Sydney hotel had been trialling access over the summer period. This access has now been formalised in the rules.
