BOOK NOW: 135 new IHG PointBreaks hotels for just 5,000 to 15,000 points inc Crowne Plaza Heathrow

Links on Head for Points pay us an affiliate commission. A list of our partners is here.

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

These hotels can be booked for stays until 30th September.

These hotels are now bookable via ihg.com.  Popular hotels will use up their allocation of reduced price rooms quickly, so book now if you are interested.  As with all IHG Rewards Club reward nights, you can cancel without penalty at any time and get your points back.

PointBreaks has changed …..

Historically all PointBreaks rooms cost a flat 5,000 IHG Rewards Club points per night.

This was a great deal, except for the teeny tiny fact that the selection of hotels had been getting progressively worse for the last couple of years.  If you were looking for a good deal in a major tourist centre then you were going to be disappointed – although it was handy if you wanted a weekend break in Doncaster.  This has now changed.

The 135 hotels on the list below are priced at between 5,000 and 15,000 IHG Rewards Club points per night.  In general the quality of hotels included has gone up since the 5,000 point cap was removed, although at the end of the day it always depends on how the list fits around your travel plans.

PointBreaks availability is very limited so book ASAP if you are interested.

Two of the more interesting properties from a UK perspective were on the preview list we covered on Saturday.  Holiday Inn Brighton Seafront does not have the greatest reputation but, compared to the cash cost of Brighton hotels in August, you will be getting a deal.  The InterContinental Doha (pictured below) is worth a look if you are interested in a Middle East break or are planning a stopover on a Qatar Airways flight booking elsewhere.  If you book for late September the heat should be manageable.

Two in the London area which may well work for you are Crowne Plaza Heathrow and Holiday Inn Express Croydon (a short walk to the railway station for a quick train into Central London).

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

You will be able to book these hotels for dates up to 30th September.

If you are short of points, you can currently buy IHG points with a targeted bonus of up to 100% via this link.

InterContinental Doha

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 may reprice at the full rate.

Comments

  1. Thanks Rob, grabbed a night at CP Heathrow in August.

  2. James says:

    The IC Doha is a nice place.
    Even better when it’s free on the Qatar Airways stopover scheme 🙂

  3. Am sure everyone is aware, but the CP Heathrow is outside the free travel zone. When you can get bargains at other decent LHR hotels inside the travel zone, this only offers marginal value at best.

    • James P says:

      I disagree: the cost of the bus is only £1.50 each way. From Central Bus Station, take the A10 bus for one stop – Stockley Road (8 minutes) then walk 7 minutes. Exactly 15 minutes to get there – for £1.50. Great for T3. Although Spires do not get complimentary lounge access (well, I haven’t in 10+ stays there this year anyway). When the CP is similarly priced to the HI Ariel, I always go CP. It will be interesting to see what happens to the current mix when the new CP/HI combo open. They look very good.

  4. James says:

    Doesn’t match any of my plans again and nothing exciting enough to inspire a little trip.

    Hope some of you get some good use.

  5. SydneySwan says:

    Booked CP Hawkesbury Valley for a weekend in late August. Wouldn’t normally go there but it has been a while since we have had a chance to use our points on a PB offering in NSW.

  6. Capt Hammond says:

    Managed to get the CP Brum for the night of the Nick Mason (ex Pink Floyd) gig in September. Result!

  7. Nigel the pensioner says:

    Says a lot about the interconti Doha if it is ranked alongside the Crown Plaza in Brum……from personal experience!! ????????

  8. Mark E says:

    I have managed to get two nights at Croydon to cover me for the two shifts at work over the next few months that I can’t get a train in for.

    Presumably there will be new accelerate challenge announced within the next week, if so I might have to re-consider my plans.

  9. Frenzie says:

    “….you will be getting a deal.”

    Whether it will be a good deal, or a bad deal, Rob will not tell us.
    Sounds a bit like Brexit.

  10. Jenni says:

    OT: Hilton help please!

    I haven’t got much experience with booking multiple rooms, but will need to do this soon. If i book a paid night and a reward night for the same hotel for the same night, will I still receive points for the paid room?

    Also, anyone know exactly how long it takes for them to send you the Be Our Guest certificate (service recovery gesture)? I was promised mine nearly 3 weeks ago now and still haven’t received anything.

    • Per the t&c no, so I wouldn’t risk it.

      • Jenni says:

        Thanks Kai, I suspected as much. I will need to make decisions then and book either all cash or all points.

        • Bagoly says:

          Or you could book the paid room (which is presumably the one not in your name) through booking.com / rocketmiles / hotels.com etc all of which give credit to the booker not the stayer to get avios / M&Ms LHR points / hc.com credit etc

  11. Ian Gleave says:

    I can get a points and cash offer for 5,000 points plus £24 which is fine with me. However, the terms say that the cash element is charged in USD, so effectively I then have to pay foreign exchange fees on top. Have I read this correctly?
