IHG Rewards Club released its list of PointBreaks hotel reward night discounts for stays through February 28, 2019. Out of curiosity, I checked to see if some of the hotels in Europe are available for December 31 reward nights. Hotel Indigo Antwerp, Holiday Inn Helsinki-City Center and Holiday Inn Vilnius all have reward night availability for December 31 and surrounding dates.

Loyalty Traveler – Review Chic Holiday Inn Vilnius (April 19, 2016).
These are the hotels I checked out yesterday as ones in Europe where I would like to stay if in these places before February. Today I was surprised to find these three city center hotels are available for stays over New Year’s.
