    Is it possible to book Accor property directly & enter Accor # on arrival?

    If you book over the phone, can you put in Accor loyalty #? Otherwise, sounds like the hotel is managing its cost of participation in Accor loyalty; I'd take it up with Accor if you can be bothered.

    HBA - Tour suggestions - Dec 2020 & NYE

    I figured where the lavender farm is :rolleyes: @Ade if that is a must-see, and you fly into Hobart, my suggested itinerary would be: Arrive Hobart, drive to Freycinet/Coles Bay. 3 hrs direct but stop at Devils Corner (between Swansea and the Coles Bay turn off) for wine tasting and a great...

    HBA - Tour suggestions - Dec 2020 & NYE

    This is probably paywalled, but Google the headline (The Mercury) to see if you can get it. An interesting piece by David Walsh - MONA's creator. It will help you understand him/MONA a bit (maybe!!). A sample MONA to reopen on Boxing Day after nine-month COVID-19 closure IMAGINE, if you...

    Guide to Using Xenforo 2.2

    That explains the (seemingly) weird random trophy this morning for a question 'answered' a year or so ago :) Is there any way to permanently expand (to display) one (say) of the 3 vertical dots toolbar extras?

    HBA - Tour suggestions - Dec 2020 & NYE

    On the radio this morning. Hire car companies have sold up to half their stock due to covid downtown plus good second hand market. And I forgot MONA - thanks drron. It’s been refurbed during its closure. Take the ferry up from Hobart docks.

    HBA - Tour suggestions - Dec 2020 & NYE

    NYE in Hobart this year will be much tamer than usual - no Taste of Tasmania and a limited Sydney-Hobart yacht race reception. Due to all that I don't think space will be at a premium; you can get good views from many places around the docks and beyond - it just depends if you want to be in a...

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    So lets see how this goes: Tas accepts mercy flight, but not SA residents yet Tasmania will accept a coronavirus mercy flight from India and seasonal workers from Timor Leste but is keeping its border closed to South Australia for at least a few more days. Premier Peter Gutwein on Thursday...

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    Not sure if foreshadowed new legislation in Tasmania has kicked in, but I’m getting asked to sign on to many more places when I visit this week. Cafes and the like.

    Your favourite photos taken of/from a plane?

    And a very nice pic of the San Andreas Fault - the left-right linear where the water is :)

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    I agree with the risk in travelling to Tas, but to be fair, I don't think they've made decisions while people are in the air. For the SA banishment recently, the Premier even made an announcement in the morning, warning that restrictions were possible in the afternoon, and advised those on the...

    Accor Movenpick Hotel to open in Hobart

    This is a bit of a surprise. Australia's first Movenpick branded hotel will open in Hobart's CBD in January 2021. For Accor, it joins an Ibis Styles in the city. A Crowne Plaza opened a few months ago and Marriott are currently finishing what will be one of their top-range hotels. The...

    Qantas to launch in-depth partnership with Accor ALL

    That’s encouraging @sudoer . Something you never want to do is get tangled up with their French dispute ‘resolution’ team. Makes dealing with Telstra seem like a pleasure in comparison.

    Qantas to launch in-depth partnership with Accor ALL

    It’sa few years old now, but I used to have many problems with Accor in getting status and points credited when the booking was made by my TA; ditto status not recognised on check in. Usually when I showed that it was my credit card charged, the hotel acquiesced, but overall Accor was a PITA to...
