I would like to get others feed back on the change from Accor to All. I was awarded Diamond status and have been very underwhelmed to say the least, having stayed 16 nights already this year at a mix of properties there seems to be no difference than a silver or gold member.

I have just posted on a previous post but as ALL Diamond I too am very disappointed that (for our future bookings) in Europe and South America the suite upgrades are not available at any hotel we have chosen. Nor are the weekend breakfasts offered at the two hotels we are looking at staying in London (Sofitel St James and one other). They just said sorry we don't offer that!

My personal experience with ALL is that I find Gold status to be the sweet spot. Hotels basically dismiss Silver status but starts paying attention beginning with Gold. You get your room upgrade but not to suites, you get your drink vouchers and you get a nice card with a fruit plate at most hotels. Above that, there isn't a whole lot different. So my strategy now is that I will buy an ibis Business Card for Gold status when I have a large amount of Accor stays, but otherwise I focus on other chains.

I also bought Gold status and mix my loyalty with IHG. I have received suite upgrades with ALL.
I mainly choose my chain by location perhaps if LMC eleborates on the specific issue? Was the issue in Australia or?

I don't bother much with Accor or All as it is these days for this exact reason, tired of properties simply opting out of providing things you are entitled to, I just stick with IHG and Hilton these days,
I think the main issue is a lack of consistency among chains and also zero recognition of status.
Many of the benefits are rarely awarded or the Same for all status levels.

All I want is for ALL to honour their stated benefits for Diamond status (including breakfast at weekends and ability to use confirmed suite upgrade "vouchers"). Platinum has been great with included breakfasts in Asia and lots of room upgrades but the advertised advantages of Diamond have just not eventuated at this stage!

Agree, very disappointed by ALL. It is basically a marketing exercise with minimal real changes /improvements. It's shame that they have invested so many resources on the rebrand without actually addressing the fundamental issues with the program (eg, the inconsistent loyalty experience, the poor benefits, the hassles of chasing up the benefits, the poor online and IT experience, poor marketing and offers).
Accor are also very good at talking the talk, but not walking the walk. A big problem with the Diamond status is that they are creating expectations that they are just not going to meet. And they risk disappointing their best customers (as outlined above).

Really, there is little extra for a Diamond that we do not already get as Platinums. I've been a Platinum for many years, and while sometimes you need to explain to hotels what you get, I've found them to be good and consistent. The hotels I visit regularly, usually get it right for subsequent visits.
Soon you will be able to buy any status level.
Everything has a price
