Through Nov. 17, Accor is offering stays at more than 2,000 hotels across Europe with a 25% discount.

You must stay for a minimum of two nights and take the trip between Dec. 12 and March 5, 2023. With such a diverse range of hotel brands under the Accor umbrella — Novotel, ibis, Mercure, Pullman and Sofitel to name but a few of its 19-strong lineup — there’s plenty to choose from.

Depending on the time of the year and the location, there are some incredible deals available. For example, you can spend just $35 per night for a standard double room at ibis Styles in central Krakow, which is as stylish as it is spacious.

Fancy checking out Budapest’s fabled Christmas markets? Opt for two nights in a Superior Room at the Mercure Budapest Korona Hotel in Hungary from as little as $76 per night. Or, get an early taste of Hogmanay in Edinburgh, Scotland, with a two-night stay in a Twin Room or Queen Single at the city’s downtown Novotel? That’ll be $76 per night as well.

Don’t grab your credit card just yet, though. The first day of the sale is exclusively open to members of Accor’s global loyalty scheme, Accor Live Limitless, or ALL for short; members will also receive an extra 10% off on booking.

The sheer fact you can book right up until the end of spring is a joy, too. From premium city center abodes to luxury ski resorts, hotels in the countryside to hotels at airports (we loved our stay at Sofitel London Heathrow Hotel in Terminal 5), the Accor properties cater to every kind of traveler visiting Europe.

Another plus: Many Accor brands cater to business travelers. The brand offers business hotels that don’t feel like business, as cheesy as that might sound.

Case in point: Hotel Sofitel Bellecour Lyon in France, which TPG gave a massive thumbs up to in 2018, is pleasant for tourists and business types alike. It is centrally located, sumptuously designed and ideal for those armed with laptops in urgent need of coffee.

You can also score a hotel deal near some of the European winter sports action. The promotion will allow you to shave off a quarter of the price on your next stay around mountainous terrain. You can search for some of the best in France, Switzerland, Germany, Poland and Italy here.

Why We Chose It

There's a lot to love about the Amex Gold card. It's been a fan favorite during the pandemic because of its fantastic rewards rate on restaurants (that includes takeout and delivery in the U.S.!) and U.S. supermarkets. If you're hitting the skies soon, you'll also earn bonus points on travel. Paired with up to $120 in Uber Cash (for U.S. Uber rides or Uber Eats orders) and up to $120 in annual dining statement credits at eligible partners, there's no reason that the foodie shouldn't add this card to their wallet. Enrollment required.
