If you’re heading down to Sydney this year, here is a good hotel deal to consider.
In mid April, a new Crowne Plaza hotel is opening – Crowne Plaza Sydney Darling Harbour.
I don’t know anything about Sydney so I can’t comment on the location, which is apparently in the CBD near the Convention Centre. However, I can comment on the value! As a redemption, Crowne Plaza Sydney Darling Harbour is currently just 30,000 IHG Rewards Club points per night.
Cash rates are around A$400 (£210) per night, so you are getting a far better deal than my usual 0.4p per point.
It is also worth noting that the Holiday Inn Darling Harbour is 40,000 points per night but noticeably cheaper than the Crowne Plaza for cash. There is nothing surprising about this, though, as IHG will often use discounted redemption rates to push business towards brand new hotels.
The hotel website is here if you want to take a look. The official opening date is 15th April but history shows that you should have a back-up plan if you are planning to stay within 2-3 weeks of the stated opening date of any hotel …..
