Forums Hotel loyalty schemes IHG One Rewards Mixed bookings into one stay – qualifying?

    I stayed 4 nights at IC Malta. 3 consecutive bookings. Creation free night, then Ambassador certificate weekend night and free night, and finally a paid for night.

    All incidentals were rolled up into a final bill. Would you expect all to count for points??

    Also should this be 2 nights for the current 2000 for 2 nights bonus?

    Malta hotel was interesting in so many ways. Might cover in a separate post. They honoured an upgrade to junior suite from a club lounge room and matched the creation night to same room (without lounge). Was happy not to have to change rooms but it took a bit of haggling to get it done 😀. I am diamond ambassador which probably helped.

    You’d get elite night credit and points regardless so that’s not an issue.

    The current promo is cash nights only but there is often confusion with Ambassador certificates so it might post.

    This will post as three separate stays

    1. The creation free night as 1 qualifying night for status / milestones. No points based on spend as this is a points stay.

    2. The AMB BOGOF 2 night stay as 2 qualifying nights for status / milestones. And qualifying and status bonus points based on the $ spend for one paid night. Based on my experience of this promo the 2K bonus points for staying 2 nights will post with this stay

    3. The paid for night as 1 qualifying stay for status / milestones. And qualifying and status points based on the $ spend.

    I got 4 nights but Only one 2k bonus
    Plenty of points (think some posted multiple times so won’t chase the extra 2k in case they audit) and fyi the ambassador email and phone help desk are super helpful.
