How to earn double Priority Club points for London stays

UPDATE – APRIL 2024:  This article is now out of date, but don’t worry.  We produce a monthly summary of the top hotel bonus point offers – please click HERE or use the ‘Hotel Offers’ menu above.

Click here for our article on IHG’s ‘2000 Bonus Points’ promotion which runs from 1st April to 31st May 2024. You can register for the offer by clicking here.

Keep up to date with new hotel offers by signing up for our free daily or weekly newsletters.

This promotion seems to have crept out quietly a couple of weeks ago, but is still running for a while yet.  And it’s not a bad deal if you’ve got a stay planned.

Via this link, Priority Club is offering double points for stays in many of its London hotels.

The two InterContinental hotels and a couple of Indigo’s are excluded, but a lot of Crowne Plaza hotels are there, plus a large choice of Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express properties. 

Some hotels outside London are also included, such as Crowne Plaza Marlow and the Holiday Inn in Slough.  The Holiday Inn hotels at Heathrow are included as well.

Here are the rules:

You must book before April 30th

You must stay before June 30th

You must book using the link on the website above and use the special rate code

The price seems to be the same as Best Flexible Rate.  You will therefore be able to find cheaper rooms by selecting Advance Purchase options, so this promotion is only really one for business travellers or those who need a cancellation option on their booking.

It is not clear if the bonus points count for status or not – I am guessing that they don’t.

The Terms and Conditions refer to ‘1000 bonus points per stay’ but I think this is a bad ‘cut and paste’ job.  The text clearly talks of double points, as does the rate code.

IHG One Rewards update – April 2024:

Get bonus points: IHG One Rewards is offering 2,000 bonus points for every two cash nights you stay (not necessarily consecutive) between 1st April and 31st May 2024. You can read our full article here and you can register here.

    You can also just change the rate code in the url – this promo is IKDB2. This is a quick way to switch between the 241 IDEX1 and 35% off IKEX3 rates without having to search again.

      how do you change the rate code as IKDB2 does not show when clicking on the url ?

    Delightful picture of the Heathrow Ariel before clicking through to the article.
    Friendly place. They give Priority Club, sorry IHG Rewards Club members, a lucky dip on arrival. You can win free meals, points etc. I’ve still got a free drinks voucher if anyone wants it.

    Remember that the Sheraton Skyline is just next door. Meaning that you can earn SPG points for dining there and then return to the Ariel for your free drink.
