Does anyone have any experience with how long the grace period is to get the renewal rate, once your subscription has expired?

I have feedback to them long time ago that they should incentives people for being "long time" in Accor Plus. Maybe for those has been A+ member for at least 10 years continuously, Gold should be the default.

But they never listen

why so? The cost of the membership covers only for the year.

Indeed.
Any soft landing should be offered by LCAH instead of A+

I've got three Accor Plus complimentary nights to use. The call center said I couldn't use all three of them consecutively in the same stay. Does anyone have any advice around this? Can I book three separate nights and try to use a complimentary night for each one? Then contact the hotel and see if they'll allow the bookings to be linked, so I'm not having to check out and then back in again each day? Or should I try booking a 3 night stay, with a paid night in between the two free nights?

Appreciate any advice or experience anyone has on this. Cheers.

Technically, you cannot. The hotel has right to reject it and charge you BAR rate.

I have experience some hotel do not mind as long as you have paid night. May be do 2 booking, first booking 2 nights, 1 night comp and another night paid. Then another booking 3rd night free.

Where are you intended to use this? If there are many hotels, why don't you do, 1st night hotel A, 2nd night hotel B, then 3rd night hotel A again. Then you have have all 3 nights for free.

Thanks Lingua101, appreciate your advice. It will be Sydney that I look to use these vouchers. I think doing two separate bookings as you suggested is the way to go. While I love hotels and would be happy to stay in three different ones, my Wife will be traveling with me and she won't want a bar of that.

Technically this is still 1 stay. So the hotel can reject this.
