greet by Accor | With ‘Pure rooms’ and ‘Pop rooms’
Accor is introducing a new alternative hospitality offering, with a closer connection to people and the environment. Their concept ‘greet’ has to be a reflection of the group’s commitments, it forms part of a locally engaged approach and provides a response to these new guest expectations in relation to sustainable tourism. Expect, upcycled furniture sourced from flea markets, like a jar used as a bedside lamp, fresh, simple and local products, a friendly and unique atmosphere.
The brand’s first property, the greet hotel Beaune opened its doors last April, greet is the latest addition to Accor’s economy segment. Community-based, engaged and non-standardized brand, its aim is to welcome those seeking meaning in their purchases, relationships and lifestyle! But according to Accor greet is not just an economy brand. It’s a state of mind symbolized by a name, meaning to welcome, meet and celebrate. A single watchword: sharing – moments, stories and experiences.
Following the greet hotel Beaune, new openings are planned in Marseille (St Charles & Airport), Lyon Perrache, Paris, St Witz, Rennes, Bourges or Saint-Germain-en-Laye. The brand will quickly expand in various destinations in Europe, with a 1st address already scheduled in Darmstadt (Germany). Its ambition: 300 hotels opening in Europe by 2030!
greet by Accor | Hotels locally engaged, refocused on what really matters
According to Accor, travelers’ expectations have changed. Travelling with greet means giving people, places and things a second chance, and having a positive impact on your environment. With furniture and decor sourced directly from garage sales, local designers and charity stores, greet is right on trend and in line with the circular economy, reflecting a ‘less is more’ design philosophy. A commitment driven by its friendly and welcoming teams known as the ‘greeters’.
Pure rooms and Pop rooms
Travelers will be able to enjoy 2 types of rooms boasting innovative designs: Pure rooms and Pop rooms. The Pure rooms go back to basics. With their sleek design, they offer all the essentials required for a comfortable night’s sleep. Meanwhile, Pop guest rooms are more spacious and their design is more colorful with unusual decorative items from garage sales, imbuing each room with its own unique and welcoming character. Finally, for those preferring to travel as a group, family/group rooms accommodating between 4 and 6 people are also available. On the F&B side, greet is committed to offering fresh and local products, to be shared at the communal table, seated at the greet bar, in the shade of the garden parasol, in the lobby, or perhaps on the terrace, on your own or with friends.
