Large proportion of IHG PointBreaks hotels still available for stays to Oct 31

When a new list of IHG Rewards Club PointBreaks hotels are posted, I try and load the complete list on Loyalty Traveler as a record of hotels that were available. Today I am surprised to see only 17 hotels have dropped off the list after two weeks of bookings. I view this as an anomaly since there are usually a significant proportion of hotels to drop off PointBreaks during the first few days of discount reward night availability. The large number of hotels still available could be due to less desirable hotels on the list, yet several of these properties still available are significantly discounted for points bookings compared to prevailing room rates.

The ability to buy IHG Rewards Club points several times during the year at $5.00 per 1,000 points means these hotels are equivalent to $25 nights at 5,000 points for a reward night.

14 of 17 hotels originally on PointBreaks for 5,000 points are still available.

There are still 69 of 71 hotels at in the USA for 10,000 points reward nights – equivalent to $50.

39 of 42 international hotels are still available for 10,000 points.

Seven of 20 hotels at 15,000 points on the international hotels list are already gone from PointBreaks. This includes two hotels in Lisbon, Portugal and resort hotels in Thailand and Vietnam. There are still three InterContinental properties available for the equivalent of $75 in points.

InterContinental Sao Paulo, Brazil at 15,000 points per night Oct 13-20, 2019.

105,000 points for 7 nights (equivalent to $525) or $1,665 for discount Best Flexible Rate.

 

At 15,000 points reward nights for 34 USA hotels, only Holiday Inn San Francisco Fisherman’s Wharf and InterContinental Doral are no longer on IHG PointBreaks. Most hotels on the list are cheaper to book with points than cash rates.

Hotel Indigo Madison Wisconsin Oct 15-18, 2019 

3 nights for 45,000 points (equivalent to $225) or a cash rate of $517.15 with the current 25% off advance purchase IHG sale through Sep 24.

Of course this does not mean that all dates between now and October 31 are available for discount reward nights at all hotels on the list.

  1. Thanks, Ric. It’s a shame that 15,000 is now considered a “Points Break” when it used to be the standard price. Nothing in the 5s or 10s for my upcoming cross-country trip. Sad that Hotels.com has become a better deal than Platinum status on IHG.
