InterContinental New York Times Square 10,000 points for 2 nights

The new InterContinental New York Times Square has an opening special offer for 10,000 bonus points with a two-night stay by October 31, 2010.

Rate categories IKP10 (Sun-Thu weekdays) or IKPWK (Fri-Sat weekend) are required.

I had difficulty finding room availability any weekend when using the 10,000 bonus points special rate.

I did not find any 10,000 bonus points rate that was worth the extra cost compared to AAA rate.

InterContinental New York Times Square

  • Wednesday, September 15 – Friday, September 17
  • IKP10 Rate = $569 (King Bed Sky View Room); $656 per night after tax
  • AAA rate = $512.10 (King Bed Sky View Room); $591 per night after tax.

10,000 bonus points will cost an extra $130 for this two-night stay. You can buy 10,000 points from Priority Club for less.

This is a 1-key promotion. You are likely to pay more in a higher rate than the points are worth.
