Hotels now provide many services offered by the app AccorLocal. With just a few clicks, customers can reserve a service offered by a hotel in their neighborhood, without actually staying there. These services include many dining options such as, a take away breakfast at the Ibis Bordeaux Centre Bastide; a baguette delivered to the hotel when the bakery is closed at the Novotel Suites Paris Issy-les-Moulineaux or perhaps an hour of yoga followed by an irresistible brunch at the Grand Hotel Roi René Aix-en-Provence by MGallery.
The application has more than 5,000 active users and now offers access to hundreds of services in more than 250 hotels in France. AccorLocal will be rolled out in 2018 and 2019 in major cities and capitals around the world.

Thursday November 23, 2017 - eight young entrepreneurs spent the day at AccorHotels Group headquarters.
Supported by Positive Planet France, these 8 young people are receiving assistance as part of the program "Business Creation in the Suburbs", which acts against exclusion and poverty by helping people who live in deprived neighborhoods start their own business.
The Solidarity AccorHotels endowment fund aims to support this initiative by funding training and guiding these young people from the Poissy office with the creation of a new business. Two employees from AccorHotels headquarters or Fastbooking are involved in the project and arrange specific training sessions in “Marketing and Communication” to best meet the needs of these young entrepreneurs.
Isabelle Falque (below left), Project Lead and Director of Global Marketing & Communication at Fastbooking, along with Laurie Perniola, Product Marketing Manager, spent the day with these 8 entrepreneurs: exchanging ideas, pitching projects, creating logos, discussing communication and mailshots... their expertise has enabled the young people to develop and step up their project.
For the third consecutive year, the Pullman Paris sales teams are organizing a community-focused Christmas tree decorating competition with its travel agency partners. In all, about a dozen agencies are taking part. The winning team will be awarded a check for €1,000 by the sales teams of Pullman, which will be matched by the Solidarity AccorHotels endowment fund Solidarity AccorHotels. The money will then be awarded to an organization that fights exclusion, supported by the fund and to be chosen by the winning agency. Each agency has two weeks to decorate their tree, delivered free of charge by the Pullman Paris sales teams as part of the challenge. This year, they must all adhere to the theme of Japan and decorate their tree as creatively as possible, using recycled materials, natural decorations, collages, paper folding, bows and origami, etc., all to impress the members of the jury made up of several Pullman employees.
This year for the holiday season, plant trees via the platform - accorhotels.purprojet.shop - and give one to your friends and family!
A unique, environmentally-friendly and long-lasting gift, from just €3.
