I love to travel, but my days of roughing it in subpar hotels are over. But that doesn’t mean I’ve won the lottery, it just means I’ve become a smarter traveler, and part of my travel smarter shopping scheme is to make use of reward club promotions. There are plenty of them around, but you need to scrutinize them carefully to be sure they truly reward their users.
IHG Rewards Club – Get Rewarded For Staying Where I Love
I’ve been looking into the IHG® Rewards Club because they have nine hotel brands with over 4800 hotels in almost 100 countries around the globe. Sure, without a passport I won’t be visiting any of the InterContinenal® Hotel Group properties outside of the US, but there are plenty here to enjoy. In fact, some of my favorite hotels are part of the IHG® family including Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Holiday Inn Resort, Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts, Staybridge Suites, and Candlewood Suites.
I recently stayed at a Holiday Inn Express in Wenatchee, Washington, which was perfect for my business trip. They provided free Wi-fi, access to a business center with a printer and other amenities, and an over-the-top breakfast that went far beyond a traditional free hotel breakfast. Even though I was there on business, I brought my mother along to stay with me and we made use of the hotel’s central location to get out and explore the Wenatchee area. We were minutes away from fantastic restaurants, public art, and park spaces which we thoroughly enjoyed. The Holiday Inn Express also proved to be an exceptional place to relax at the end of the day and had a bed that rivaled my own in comfort. The staff was friendly and helpful, and my stay couldn’t have been better.
We’ve also stayed in participating hotels on vacation and had the same great service. But that’s what I like about IHG® properties, they pride themselves on their hospitality and for me that’s a huge factor in where I stay. Even their Rewards Club is based on the premise that IHG wants to build a lifetime relationship with their valued members they want those members to be able to share their experiences with family and friends.
IHG Rewards Club – “Share Forever” Summer Promotion
