A promotion that has been going on for a while now, that most of us thought was over is the Free Platinum Status with Accor Hotels. All you need to is become a member of Le Club Accorhotels.
View from the Wing supplies us with this link and this link.

Platinum Perks with Le Club AccorHotels:
  • A welcome drink upon arrival (for one or two people, to be consumed at the hotel
  • bar or restaurant during the stay).
  • A welcome gift.
  • A late check-out option to keep the room until 4:00 pm on the date of departure at
    no additional charge, subject to room availability. The Member’s desire to keep the
    room must be mentioned at the reception desk upon arrival.
  • Guaranteed room availability if the reservation is made before 12:00 pm (noon)
    local time in the country where the hotel is located, at least three (3) days before
    the expected arrival date. This guarantee only applies to stays paid at the regular
    public rate or full rate (not including promotions or reductions), and for one room
    (the Member’s room). If the hotel is unable to honor this room availability guarantee,
    it is committed to obtaining accommodations for the Member at a nearby Sofitel,
    Pullman, or MGallery hotel or at a hotel in an equivalent category. If it is necessary
    for the Member to stay at a hotel that does not belong to the Accor group, the hotel
    will reimburse the Member for any difference in the cost of the first night and any
    related transportation fees, upon presentation of the corresponding receipts. All
    hotel stay expenses for the night in question (price paid by the Member plus the
    additional price difference reimbursed by the hotel) are eligible for Le Club
    Accorhotels points credit. This room availability guarantee is valid at all participating
    Sofitel, Pullman, and MGallery hotels, with the exception of those hotels listed here
    (see hotel list). Room guarantees are not available during exceptional events that
    generate high demand for the desired destination (see unavailable dates). In order
    to properly benefit from the room availability guarantee, the Member must alway
    explicitly request said guarantee at the time of reservation.
     Upgrade to the next higher room category (subject to room availability at the time
    of check-in). The Member must request this advantage upon arrival at the hotel.
  •  Dedicated customer service by telephone for all Program-related information.
  •  Le Club Accorhotels Platinum Members who stay at an aparthotel in the Adagio
    (excluding Adagio Access) network can also take advantage of late check-out (subject
    to availability), and a welcome gift for stays of ten (10) nights or more.
  • Le Club Accorhotels Platinum Members who stay at a hotel in the Thalassa sea &
    spa network are offered a Thalassa sea & spa Institute beauty product or treatment.

Now, once you get Platinum status with AccorHotels, you can get status matched with some other hotel programs. For instance, I am staying at one of Club Carlson's Hotels in London tomorrow evening, The Park Plaza Westminster Bridge (due to their promotion) and want Gold status with Club Carlson to make my stay even more pleasant. I emailed Club Carlson my AccorHotel statement, where it is written that I am a Platinum member. I hope to receive an email from them soon saying that they have upgraded me to Gold. To earn Gold status under the normal channels one would have to complete 20 qualifying stays or 35 nights at Club Carlson Hotels.

Club Carlson Elite Gold Perks:
Complimentary room upgrades as available
50% point bonus on every eligible stay
2,000 point online booking bonus at or any Carlson Rezidor hotel website
Early check-ins and late checkouts as available upon request
Roll Over Nights (unused elite-qualifying nights count again next year toward elite status)
72-hour room availability guarantee at participating hotels
