IHG Rewards (formerly Priority Club Rewards) has just released a preview of its list of PointBreaks hotels that will be available for booking for just 5,000 points per night between November 1, 2013, and January 31, 2014.
Beginning on November 1, IHG Rewards members can book award nights for 5,000 points at 210 participating hotels through January 31.
The new list includes 142 hotels in the U.S., six in Canada, 10 in Mexico, six in Central and South America, 22 in Europe, 20 in Asia and Oceania, and four in the Middle East and Africa.
The “official” PointBreaks list should be posted here on November 1.
Deal or No Deal
With normal award prices beginning at 10,000 points per night, the PointBreaks rates represent a discount of at least 50 percent.
The question, always, is whether any of the discounted hotels work for you. The current list of 210 participating properties is a considerable improvement from the previous roster, which included just 119 PointBreaks hotels. U.S. hotels, for example, increased from 73 participating properties to 142. And there are five InterContinentals on the new list, versus just one previously.
Bottom line: It’s certainly worth perusing the list. There might be a hotel that fits into your existing travel plans, or that could be the centerpiece of an opportunistic trip.
As always, room nights available at the PointBreaks rate are limited, so act quickly to lock in a deal that works for you.
