I dropped this article in on Sunday rather than Monday to save readers from any unnecessary booking panic on Sunday night!
IHG Rewards Club was due to change the reward pricing of almost 700 hotels on Monday. 80% of the changes are increases.
The good news is that only about 15% of IHG’s hotels are impacted, and so only about 12% are going up. The 70,000 point cap remains, and no additional hotels are moving into the 70,000 point category.
The implementation date now seems to be 25th January. The date on the list of impacted properties has changed and no longer says 14th January.
The list of hotels changing category can be found here. Examples of hotels changing category can be found in my original article here – the Holiday Inn Express in Wigan, pictured below, is dropping by 5,000 points.
