To be honest, as a platinum with approx 80-90 nights a year at Accor, I'm hoping this will translate into more consistent benefits as it limits the number of Platinum members. I'll be ticked off if it remains the same as it currently is, especially with recognition in Australian hotels, especially in Adelaide (rarely an upgrade).
It will make Platinum a smaller club, and hopefully they will bring in Lifetime Platinum as well.
Once converted to AUD using the xe conversion rate as of Saturday 2 April 2016, the required expenditure in AUD is as follows:
Platinum - $8260.44
Gold - 4,124.76
Silver - 1,178.09
