IHG Rewards Club London promotion for Double Points does not match up to T&C.

The T&C for the IHG promotion page states the IHG London promotion offers 1,000 bonus points per night at all brands in London, except Staybridge Suites.

Must be a Priority Club Rewards member or enroll prior to stay. Only available at participating InterContinental Hotels Group (InterContinental®, Crowne Plaza®, Hotel Indigo®, Holiday Inn®, Holiday Inn Express®, Staybridge Suites®) hotels in London, England. 1,000 bonus points will be awarded for each night, with the exception of Staybridge Suites where 1,000 bonus points will be awarded for each stay. A Stay is defined as one night or consecutive nights at the same hotel, regardless of frequency of check-in/check-out. Offer valid until the 30th April 2013 for stays from the 22nd of March 2013 until the 30th of June 2013.

I’d like to point out that there is a Staybridge Suites in London, but it is not listed as participating in this promotion.

Double Points Analysis

Double IHG points means 10 bonus points/$1.

Spend $500 in London and that is 5,000 bonus Priority Club points.

Or do you have to spend 5 nights in London to earn 5,000 bonus points?

Double points means any hotel night costing over $200 USD (130 GBP) will earn more points with Double Points than 1,000 Bonus Points per Night.

The price of London hotels means the rate will likely be over $200 per night.

IHG 2-for-1 London

Of course you can always book lower rates using the IHG 2-for-1 link which generally has several London hotels participating and offers one of the best rate discounts available for London and other locations in Europe.
