Dubrovnik IHG One Rewards Mr. & Mrs. Smith Hotels - IHG partner Uncategorized

Use IHG points at three Mr and Mrs Smith Hotels in Dubrovnik, Croatia

Mr and Mrs Smith hotels partnering with IHG One Rewards has made many new destinations available for hotel stays using IHG points. With more than 1,600 Mr and Mrs Smith affiliated properties worldwide, my quick observation revealed dozens of hotels in Europe bookable through the IHG website using points. You can book stays and earn IHG points at participating Mr and Mrs Smith properties. The challenge is learning specifically which Mr and Mrs Smith hotels currently participate in IHG.

Using Mr and Mrs Smith’s website to search properties, find interesting hotels and then cross-check with hotels bookable with IHG points revealed a large number of Mr and Mrs Smith Hotels available through its own website do not come up in IHG website searches. A quick read through FlyerTalk indicated about 400 hotels in the Mr and Mrs Smith brand appear in IHG searches. The inclusion of some new and uncommon place names in the IHG destination search bar where you can find a Mr and Mrs Smith hotel, but not yet bookable with IHG, indicates to me there may be an expansion in upcoming months of MMS properties available using IHG points.

WARNING: 30-Days advance cancellation on Mr and Mrs Smith IHG points reward stays.

There is a big caveat to the value of IHG points for Mr and Mrs Smith hotels in that IHG points reservations are restricted to 30-days advance cancellation before your stay to get points refunded. Cancellations and no shows within 30 days of a Mr and Mrs Smith stay on points are basically nonrefundable points nights.

There are certainly deals to be found using IHG points for Mr and Mrs Smith hotel stays. The more than 30-days before stay cancellation policy for a points refund is likely a deal breaker for me, unless I am already in the place and can book the Mr and Mrs Smith hotel that week using points.
