Interesting Hotels

Here’s what looks interesting to me.  But it doesn’t matter if they are interesting to me.  What matters is that YOU find them interesting and can save money or points by booking them!

Holiday Inn San Diego North Miramar


Holiday Inn Express Omaha-Southwest


Intercontinental Cleveland


Intercontinental Marine Drive-Mumbai, India


Crowne Plaza Nairobi, Kenya


Holiday Inn Sofia, Bulgaria


Holiday Inn Eindhoven, Netherlands


Intercontinental Real Tegucigalpa, Honduras


Intercontinental Hangzhou, China


These are the hotels I find interesting.  But take a look at the full PointBreaks list and see if there is a hotel that is useful for YOUR future travel plans.

You can book through May 31, 2014.  But 5,000 IHG points per night is an incredible deal and the best hotels don’t last long.

How Can I Earn IHG Rewards Points?

You can get IHG Rewards points by:

Usually, transferring points from Chase Ultimate Rewards to IHG Rewards is NOT the best value, but it certainly could make sense for hotels on the PointBreaks list.

If you’re comfortable with using the cash and points trick, you can effectively buy IHG points for 0.7 cents per point.  This is a better value than redeeming Ultimate Rewards points directly for IHG points.

Bottom Line

The PointBreaks list is available through May 31, 2014.

It doesn’t hurt to book using points, because you can usually cancel without a penalty.  But read the cancellation policy before booking!

Hotels may sell out and can be removed from the list at any time.  So if you see a hotel you like, book quickly!

LHR to OTH will be on United

My Wife & I want to fly from OTH via LAX through Singapore ( on Singapore Airlines) to CPT with a stopover there - then on to LHR with a stopover there before flying back to OTH using Star Alliance - we have almost 700,000 United miles and want to fly Business Class - how many miles will we need?

Thanks for sharing your experience Dustin, and glad to hear they confirmed the 80K deal for you. Let us know if you actually get the 80K after your 1k spend. (noticed even the flyertalk thread is waiting for a confirmation on that -- guessing too you used the ft thread link)

I appreciate it worked for many via the Visa card, but hesitant to try the M/C version (esp. with the blank landing screen) til I hear more confirmations with points deposited.

Daraius, curious you haven't caught or commented on this issue yet. ?

Do you recommend closing the IHG visa card before it’s converted to mastercard?

I already got my letter in the mail it’s coming.


@will. 2 weeks ago I was approved for the MC IHG. I called chase right after my instant approval and was told it was for the 80k. I did mention that I applied for the 80k as well. It was very quick. They even expedited the card to me since I had a stay at the end of that week!
