IHG’s Europe Winter Sale

Ok this one is not a ‘proper’ Black Friday Sale, as this sale has been going on for a few days already, however as we haven’t covered it yet, it deserves a spot in our Black Friday list.  It covers InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, HI Express, Staybridge Suites, Hotel Indigo and other IHG brands.

Book directly via the IHG website before 24 February for stays between 2nd December and 27th February to get up to 30% off rooms.  This offer is exclusive to IHG Rewards Club members but you can sign up for free if you are not already in. decided to do a Purple Friday instead of Black Friday. As we couldn’t find any other purple deals, they are allowed to appear on our Black Friday list.

The deal is: get up to 30% off hotel stays when booking via this link today.

T&Cs on when to travel are shown on the individual booking pages.

Hilton Winter Sale

This one is also not a ‘proper’ Black Friday Sale and we have covered it in this article.  However we thought a reminder of Hilton’s winter sale won’t do any harm.

  • Brian says: has 15% off on all hotels – generally, these vouchers on such sites exclude the major chains.

  • Matt says:

    Rob do you have any control over the ads on your blog?
    They are starting to get intrusive e.g. there are two video ads on this page (for me) which autoplay and at least one had the sound on. Embedded videos are especially annoying when on low power machines eg tablets, chromebooks, having the sound on is even worse. I have my adblocker switched off for your site to ensure you get the revenue you deserve for your work, I dont want to have to switch it on.

    • Rob says:

      Yes, spotted this. I can deal with that but will be tonight. These are the 2 boxes an ad agency sells for me.

  • Ali says:

    Slightly OT

    Anyone know if the Apple Concession in Harrods is doing any deals today?
    Would be good to combine with some £30 off £100 offers…

    • jamie says:

      apple have a gift voucher deal for black Friday. not sure if available in harrods concession

    • Charlie says:

      Out of interest has anyone received the £30 credit from AMEX for this? I

      • Ali says:

        I got £30 off £200 Apple spend (in store + online) on BAPP only today – must be targeted – didn’t get it on any other cards

        • HayMow says:

          Thanks for the tip off – wondering if I can just buy a digital Apple gift card with it online

      • reds says:

        Yes, received £30 back yesterday after a £130 online spend 3 days ago.

      • Azza83 says:

        Yes. £30 credited this morning following a £103 in-store spend last Saturday.

  • Gavin says:

    O/T – can anyone recommend a decent hotel in central Brighton, looking for a romantic stay for one night between xmas and new year?

    • Daniel says:

      The Grand makes for a choice … Avoid the Holiday inn… If you have diamond status.. the Hilton will look after u.

    • tony says:

      There’s a Hotel du Vin – never stayed in that property but am sure they will have some nice rooms.

    • Leo says:

      I think I’ve stayed in every hotel known to man in Brighton due to work.
      Personally I’d take the Hilton over the Grand but there’s not much between them. The Hotel du Vin is okay – not keen on the rooms actually although the public space/bar is good. If romance is key then you could do worse than stay at Drakes on the seafront. Kylie stayed there once apparently – possibly starting to push the boundary on “central”. Points wise it’s the Hilton for sure.

      • Gavin says:

        Thanks all, Hilton looking like the favourite at present.

        • David says:

          Try the MyHotel – something slightly different, convenient part of time and good cocktails in the bar.

          • Leo says:

            It gets really busy at weekends though – and whilst it’s a nice hotel (which I have stayed in several times) it’s not really “romantic”. Also breakfast is I think limited to the coffee shop.Very central though and good for the North Laines.

  • James says:

    OT: Hi Rob, following your review of the Hilton Munich City in 2014 do you know if it has had a refurb ?
    Diamond status thinking of one night (2 full days) stopover.

  • David says:

    The Hilton Munich airport is also fab & is in walking route to airport…

  • HayMow says:

    No reward credit – usually story when do a promo, so I never take them up on it

  • Ian says:

    The Marriott sale is a bit weird as when I follow the links I get the below….so it’s more expensive to book the cyber monday deal than the advance purchase? Same on a few different hotels.
