Full list IHG PointBreaks July 27 – Oct 31, 2015 has me honing in on Hamburg HIX

The new IHG PointBreaks list of hotels for 5,000 points reward nights will be available by July 27 for bookings through October 31, 2015.

The full list of Pointbreaks hotels is posted on IHG Blog and at the end of this post.

Holiday Inn Express Hamburg City Centre is one listing that excites me. My preferred destination for an American Airlines AAdvantage Executive Platinum challenge is a flight from Los Angeles LAX to Copenhagen CPH for $692 in September. Since I spent a week in Copenhagen this month, my desire is to spend some time in Germany and Hamburg is an easy train ride of five hours from Copenhagen for 29 EUR.

Booking four nights at Holiday Inn Express Hamburg for 20,000 points will place me in the city center. Rates are currently listed at $145 USD per night.

$580 saved on four hotel nights is great redemption value for 20,000 IHG Rewards Club points at $29 per 1,000 points. IHG points were on sale recently for under $6 per 1,000 points.

I might even route myself with an overnight transit layover in Heathrow, where there is a Holiday Inn at T5 on this list.

  1. Not sure why you would want to spend 4 nights in Hamburg. We had a 10 hour layover on AA ticket last fall and it was plenty to explore the city, and not the prettiest German city at that. Also, that T5 Holiday is not exactly in Heathrow but rather 20+ minute ride on a Hoppa bus.
