Las Vegas Holiday Inn has two special offer rates for 10,000 bonus points per stay including breakfast for two at the Forte Grill hotel restaurant or 15,000 bonus points per stay. The 15,000 bonus points rate is available for stays into November 2011 at rates about $50 more than the otherwise lowest available rate.
The 10,000 bonus points is actually the better deal with the breakfast benefit, but appears to be available only for the holiday season through December 2010.
There are no special rate codes to enter. These offers appear in general searches.
Thanksgiving weekend rates are $119 per night compared to an advance purchase rate of $97. An extra $22 for 10,000 Priority Club bonus points and a restaurant breakfast for two is an amazing deal.
The 15,000 points package rate for the same date is $25 more for the extra 5,000 points at $144 per night, however, no breakfast included.
The 10,000 bonus points package if staying in 2010 is the better value.
Rate Rules Fine Print
These rates have lenient cancellation policies at 24 hours advance notice for dates I checked.
Rate rules for these 10K and 15K packages state no other points promotions can apply on top of this package such as a PC Postcard Mailer. I really do not know what this means exactly, but I do not think it applies to the current Sweet Dilemma offer for a free night after two stays.
Please correct me readers if you find I am wrong about the Sweet Dilemma offer and this Las Vegas bonus points offer.
The hotel is located at Paradise Road and Flamingo, two long blocks east of the Strip, near the UNLV campus.
One of the best features of this hotel over most hotels on the Las Vegas Strip is a complimentary shuttle service between LAS airport and the hotel. Hotel shuttle service is rare in Las Vegas and a taxi will run $15 to $25 depending on how much traffic you hit (or your driver can find).
Priority Club offers these 10,000 bonus points packages at a variety of hotels around the country. Locating them is kind of hit or miss. Priority Club has a webpage showing hotels offering bonus points rates, but these 10,000 points hotels are not shown. And 15,000 bonus points per stay is the highest rate I have seen.
To compare: Through Points & Cash it will cost $90 to buy 15,000 points. Through Priority Club “Buy Points” link it will cost $187.50 to buy 15,000 points.
