InterContinental Hotels Group – Asia On Sale – 3 Days Only

IHG in Asia has a sale from Wednesday through Friday based on GMT+8.  I should have looked up the meaning of GMT+8 yesterday.  It turns out that GMT+8 is 15 hours ahead of California time and this promotion started 22 hours ago as I write this in California at 7:00am on Wednesday . 

For those of us in the USA this means the sale ends at Friday morning 5:59am on the east coast and 8:59am on the west coast.

Offer: 140 or so hotels have special Asia on Sale rates. Brands include InterContinental Hotels, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn and HI Express for stays between April 14 and July 31, 2009.

Check other special offer rates before booking these. Flyertalkers have stated some of these Asia on Sale rates are higher than rates were recently for these hotels. Link to FlyerTalk thread.  I have not looked at Asia rates frequently enough to know which hotels are good values with this sale.
