Lol I can see it happening that even when its re branded and opened we will still not be able to use Fairmont hotels for benefits and points.

I hope Accor is not that bad that we actually start losing luxury hotels to the Fairmont loyalty program which should winding down.

I did remember reading a review, maybe yours staying at this hotel a year or 2 ago. From memory the rooms were a little dated so it was time for a renovation.

My wife and myself said just today we better avoid being frugal with hotel spending if we want to qualify for plat next year as we probably wont stay at anymore than 4/5 accor hotels between now and the end of the year now mother in law isnt coming we will skip Amsterdam.

So sadly in London we cant splurge and go for the Fairmont Savoy. Plus we stayed at around Hyde park last time so she wants a different area of the city to explore. Sofitel is far away enough?Otherwise just suite it up at the new novotel canary wharf.
