Accor Plus offering 20% off Raffles Hotel dining & takeaways until end 2020

Accor Plus has historically excluded Raffles Hotel, but for a limited time, members can get a 20% discount on dine-in and takeaways.

Although Raffles Hotel is officially under the Accor umbrella, Accor Plus members don’t enjoy any dining discounts here. Nestled away in the Accor Plus terms and conditions, you’ll find this exclusion clause:

Dining privileges are not available at Raffles Hotels and Resorts, Orient Express Hotels and ibis Budget Hotels

That’s a shame, because Accor Plus could really give AMEX Love Dining a run for the money if only 50% off at the Raffles were on the table.

American Express is currently waiving the first year’s annual fee on the AMEX Singapore Airlines Business Credit Card, which comes with a complimentary Accor Plus membership and one free night’s hotel stay. The catch, if you want to call it that, is that only registered business owners are eligible to apply for this card. Read more details here.

Well, there’s been a positive development on that front, although it’s not quite 50%…

Accor Plus 20% off Raffles Hotel Singapore dining

Accor Plus sent out an eDM yesterday informing members of a 20% discount at the Raffles Hotel until 31 December 2020. This applies to the following restaurants:

  • Butcher’s Block
  • La Dame De Pic
  • Raffles Courtyard
  • The Grand Lobby
  • Tiffin Room 
  • yi by Jereme Leung

If you’re heading to Raffles Hotel on or before 30 September 2020, however, do remember that they’re still running a “4 for 3” offer, where the 4th diner eats free with selected set menus. There’s also a 25% discount on beverages, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. 

What’s nice is this discount also extends to the takeaway options by Raffles Grab & Go (these are valid till 30 December 2020):

  • Butcher’s Block Grab & Go
  • The Grand Lobby Grab & Go
  • Tiffin Room Grab & Go
  • yi by Jereme Leung Grab & Go

To enjoy the discount, enter the promo code ACCORPLUS20 when ordering online. You’ll be asked to show your Accor Plus membership card when collecting your order. 

Which Raffles Hotel restaurants are worth trying?

I recently did a staycation at the Raffles Hotel, and while it was generally excellent all round, the dining was a particular highlight. 

Review: Raffles Hotel Singapore Staycation

You can read my detailed thoughts in the full review, but here’s a quick rundown:

Nay: Butcher’s Block

I heard good things about Butcher’s Block, but unfortunately I just can’t recommend it. Nothing we ate here was great; in fact, most of it wasn’t even good- when a steak place can’t even do the steak right, you know it’s not a good sign.

Butcher’s Block

Our bone-in sirloin (S$108++) came so raw the cow was still mooing (we ordered medium rare), and after asking for a refire, returned burned to a crisp. Beef tartare was average (and overpriced at S$29++), coming with the weirdest plating I’d ever seen. On the whole this place just isn’t worth the money in my book. 

Yay: Raffles Courtyard

Raffles Courtyard is an al fresco bar where you can enjoy cocktails and a variety of finger food, as well as more substantial items. During happy hour, cocktails cost just S$15++ each, great value considering where you are (the 20% Accor Plus discount doesn’t extend to drinks).

I’d highly recommend the har cheong gai, as well as the seafood mee goreng. 

On the weekends, Raffles Courtyard serves a weekend brunch menu from 9.30 a.m to 3 p.m. 

Yay: The Grand Lobby

You can’t go to the Raffles Hotel and not have their afternoon tea at The Grand Lobby. At S$78++ per person, it’s certainly not the cheapest out there, but remember, you’re paying for the experience.

I had the traditional afternoon tea (pictured above), but apparently the New York tea set is well worth trying too. 

Yay: Tiffin Room

The iconic Tiffin Room is now the longest-running restaurant at the Raffles, and with good reason. If you fancy splurging, try the Jhinga Kebab (S$55++), too massive grilled tiger prawns served with mango salsa. If you can’t decide what you want for the main, go with the Mera Dabba (S$75++), which lets you choose two mains, plus all the classic accompaniments (and a free flow of naan too!)

Hands down my favourite restaurant at the Raffles. Go during lunch, where you’ll get to choose from the dim sum menu.

Must tries include the Black Golden Egg Custard Bun (S$9++) and Dried Scallops, Shrimp & Chives Pancake (S$9++), but even staples like Siew Mai (S$9++) and Har Kau (S$9++) were executed to perfection, and the cheung fun with tiger prawns (S$10++) and barbecue pork (S$10++) had whole slices of shrimp and char siew inside, not the tiny flecks you find elsewhere.

Go go go.

Conclusion

I have yet to try La Dame de Pic, although I do suspect it’ll still be prohibitively expensive even with the discount. If you’ve been, do weigh in below as to whether you felt it was worth it! 

Dining at the Raffles isn’t cheap, even with 20% off, but I like that the discount extends to takeaways too. You’ll score a roughly 13% discount, after accounting for 7% GST. All in all, a nice addition for Accor Plus members.
