IHG Rewards Club (the Holiday Inn, HI Express, Crowne Plaza, InterContinental etc group) has just published its new list of heavily discounted PointBreaks redemptions.
You can book these hotels for stays until 31st October.
These hotels are bookable NOW via ihg.com. Popular hotels will use up their allocation of reduced price rooms quickly, so book soon 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.
This is, to be honest, the best list we have seen for quite a while. It is also, by far, the longest.
If you try to book one of these hotels on Tuesday morning for the 1st September to 31st October period and it is showing the full points price, this means that the hotel has sold out of its allocation of PointBreaks nights.
What are the PointBreaks highlights?
Not surprisingly the better deals are at the 15,000 points level.
All three of the 15,000 points UK options are recommended. Hotel Indigo Dundee has great feedback and you can check out the new V&A offshoot. Crowne Plaza London Heathrow T4 is fab as I reviewed here. Hotel Indigo Stratford Upon Avon is a recent opening which has apparently had a lot of money spent on it.
You’ve also got the InterContinental in Sao Paolo, a Holiday Inn in Paris, two Holiday Inn’s in Lisbon, Crowne Plaza Dubai Apartments (not on the beach), Crowne Plaza Perth, the Holiday Inn on Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco and an InterContinental in Miami.
My pic of the 10,000 point redemptions is Staybridge Suites London – Heathrow Bath Road. Here is our review and it is pictured below. For 10,000 points it’s cheaper than renting a one-bed flat ….
The Crowne Plaza in Doha is also interesting as I need to be there in a few weeks, but I am tempted by a beach property – I’d be saving a fortune though ….. There are also three more UAE options in what is actually peak season.
How to book a PointBreaks room
PointBreaks availability is limited so book ASAP if you are interested.
You are able to book these hotels for dates up to 31st October.
If you are trying to book a reward night for a date up to 31st October and it is pricing at the full rate, the hotel has sold its allocation of PointBreaks nights.
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.
