IHG Rewards Club has revealed pricing for Regent Hotels redemptions.
As I covered last week, IHG Rewards Club will allow free night awards at its six new luxury Regent Hotels properties from 1st February.
We now know the pricing:
- Beijing – 50,000 points
- Berlin – 55,000 points
- Chongqing – 50,000 points
- Porto Montenegro – 60,000 points
- Singapore – 55,000 points
- Taipei – 60,000 points
This seems reasonable, although Regent Porto Montenegro in particular is seasonal – you can find it for under €150 well into Spring, whilst I value 60,000 points at nearer £240 / €275. In July, however, you are looking at nearer €400.
Regent Berlin pricing has similar swings. Before booking Berlin, however, do look at pictures of the bedrooms which are a bit Louis XIV, if you’re being polite, or a bit ‘your Gran’s bedroom’ if you’re not being polite.
IHG Rewards Club is doing a ‘75% buy points bonus’ at the moment – see here – which, whilst not the higher bonus ever, is worth doing if you wanted to lock in a peak season trip to the above hotels on 1st February. I would expect availability to be good, at least initially, assuming that the hotels are obliged to put up 5% of their rooms as per IHG guidelines.
