New IHG PointBreaks list of 140 x 5,000 point hotels bookable NOW

Yesterday, IHG Rewards Club (the Holiday Inn, HI Express, Crowne Plaza, InterContinental etc group) released a  new list of PointBreaks redemptions.

There is usually some pre-publicity for the list but, this time, IHG released it without any teasers.

These rooms are a fantastic deal.

All of the 140 hotels below are available NOW for just 5,000 IHG Rewards Club points per night, saving up to 25,000 points per night in some cases.

PointBreaks availability is very limited so book ASAP if you are interested. Bookings are refundable as with a standard reward reservation so there is nothing to lose.

You can book via the IHG PointBreaks page here or via the standard booking page here.

You can book these hotels for dates up to July 31st.

Crowne Plaza Rose Bank

You allowed a maximum of two bookings per individual hotel. Each booking can be for as many nights as you want.

Remember that if you attempt to amend your booking later by dropping a night or two the whole booking will reprice at the full rate.

To be honest, it is difficult to get excited about the list this time.  The only hotel which comes with a reputation is The Rosebank in Johannesburg pictured above.  However, if you need to visit one of the places on the list anyway then you’ve got yourself a bargain.

The Paris hotel is near Disneyland Paris if you are heading there.  The Crowne Plaza in Antwerp appears to be on the outskirts but manageable.

The booking page is here.

  1. SydneySwan says:

    I think this is the weakest PointsBreaks list ever – only 6 hotels in Australasia! I am starting to think that IHG will be finishing this promo sometime soon. I had some great stays when it first started but it has been 2 years since I managed to use it to stay anywhere.

    • I only see 1 in Australasia (Warwick Farm)??

      • Imbruce says:

        Warwick Farm is in the middle of nowhere in relation to the centre of Sydney if you are on holidays and wantto spend time around Sydney Habour,
        and the other tourists sites in the area.

    • Jean baird says:

      I agree we have just checked in to the Intercontinental presidente in Cancun Mexico showed our Gold IHG card which got us nothing it appears that there is an Ambassador listing which you should be a member of to gain any upgrade or extras what use is the gold card our initial room was poor facing main road and car park after some persuation we managed to get a sea view room however overlooking the conference halls and air conditioning units still the palm trees were visible

  2. Worst. List. Ever.

  3. Mmmmm rubbish!

    Any news on their q2 promo?

  4. Chester RaceCourse HIX… no Saturday only stays..2 night minimum…still 10k for the weekend aint bad!

    • trickster says:

      As a resident of the city I can recommend it’s location for easy access to the centre – it’s also one of the smarter looking HIX around.

    • AndyGWP says:

      Only just saw this… it let me book a Saturday only stay! 🙂

  5. A few in there could be useful for Euro2016 games (if they haven’t already gone!)

  6. JamesWag says:

    Won’t be booking any of these as a spontaneous opportunity to explore somewhere. Nothing really of any interest as you say.

    I can’t see many excellent hotels in interesting locations selling themselves so cheaply anymore. Previous lists were far better but been going downhill for the past few.

  7. Got the Crowne Plaza Aberdeen last time and it was great. Very poor list this time. I would have expected some Mid East hotels for Ramadan and the very hot Summer period but nought.

    • Rumours are they wanted on it again and the HIX next door as they are both rumoured to be losing a lot of money due to the oil downturn creating over-provision.

      Some of the other IHG properties in Aberdeen are flogging 5k bonus rates with breakfast for as little as £40 at the weekend it’s that bad.

  8. I must say, I’ve had more excitable moments over my morning cuppa!

    • Thefeester says:

      Well. It hasn’t been too bad for me and the brood. Managed 9 nights in July in 2 crowne plazas in NH and NJ – two suites. For 90k points. Only saved 2950USD. By the way it works from July 31st until 1st August also.

  9. Sebastian says:

    Is anyone surprised by this list? This deal used to be the best promotion on the market but for the last year, maybe two it’s been woeful unless you’re visiting a non-descript place.

    • I want to know what happened to all those other obscure Spanish HIX’s which used fo appear list in, list out!

  10. Felix Flyer says:

    Stayed at Crown Plaza Antwerp many years ago. From recollection, it is by the motorway but was a short bus ride from outside the hotel into the city. Anyway Antwerp is well worth a visit.

  11. What a load of crap, I remember when the likes of CP Abu Dhabi as well as the Staybridge there used to feature!

  12. I’ll use a couple of the UK ones as I was intending to be in those areas anyway.

    Unusually there are two up here in Scotland this time which is a surprise.

    Glenrothes is a cracking little HIX on the edge of the town and is handy for exploring Fife. It also has some rooms with Kingsize beds which is a novelty for HIX plus the property only has forty rooms so it feels totally different to other HIXs. Wifi and mobile signal aren’t the greatest at it though.

    Strathclyde I’d personally avoid at the moment as its bang in the middle of the M74/M73 roadworks and accessing the hotel is tortuous at times. It was also one of the first HIXs in the UK and hasn’t seen much in the way of investment over the years. Still a bargain though as its only twenty minutes or so into Glasgow.

    • its nice to see my hometown of Glenrothes mentioned on HfP. Although if anyone is visiting i recommend against a visit to the shopping centre, one of the main stores now seems to be Home Bargains.

  13. I could have switched a couple of my upcoming stays for our USA road trip but it cuts off 6 wks too early! Bummer!

  14. Only one I could of used this time was the HIX Chester Racecourse, but no longer showing any availability at any time (at least as far as the 5k pointbreaks are concerned) 🙁

    • Scrap that! I’ve logged on as my wife instead and now I can see widespread availability (except Saturday nights) 🙂

  15. I understand 5K points are not what they used to be, however a better solution might be to bring in some new points break tiers at 10-20K a night for nicer properties. There’s got to be more hotels with excess inventory which they could put up for grabs!

    • Enigma368 says:

      I think if they started adding 35k or 40k properties to the list at a higher 10k price, most people would be happy. Could have properties in actual city centres, rather than far out suburbs or small towns which seems to be the norm now. Still pointbreaks are a good deal and I got a hotel nearish Seattle which was the one I wanted the most.

      • JamesWag says:

        They’re the ones they want to shift though, not the 40k central ones.
        Sadly they don’t run this promo for our benefit but for the chain’s 🙂
