Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Monday, 27 June 2011

One of Australias largest hotel groups, Accor, is celebrating 20 years in Australia with a 20% room discount and prizes for sharing 20 years of memories.

Accor has set up a website which features a video of people sharing their happiest, saddest and most life changing moments over the past 20 years from the comfort of an Accor bed.

People are invited to contribute to the blog, and those who share their reminiscences will receive a A$20 voucher to use during their next stay at an Accor hotel. In addition, they will go into a draw to win one of 20 x A$200 Accor Gift Vouchers.

Participating Accor hotels across Australia are offering 20% off rates throughout the birthday period for stays from 3 July to 4 October 2011.

The Novotel Sydney on Darling Harbour was where it all began for Accor in Australia, opening in July 1991. The Novotel was Accors flagship hotel for many years, and is now part of a network that reaches as far west as Ningaloo Reef near Exmouth WA, north to Darwin in the Top End and Palm Cove in Far North Queensland, and as far south as Cradle Mountain in Tasmania and including the great wine regions in the Yarra Valley, Victoria and Barossa Valley, South Australi.

A lot has happened in 20 years and we want to share this moment in history with everyone, said Accor Australia Vice President, Simon McGrath. We started with one hotel in Australia back in 1991 and against the odds grew into a dominant player in the Australian hotel sector. We have been a real innovator over the period, introducing new hotel concepts, particularly in the mid and economy sectors of the market, and not only helped establish Darling Harbour but also Sydney Olympic Park ... Our guests and staff have been part of all these experiences and reaching 20 years is a time to celebrate, reflect and share some of the most memorable moments over the past two decades.
