UPDATE: IHG Rewards Club PointBreaks Participating Hotel Confusion

5 Comments

There is often bit of drama surrounding the release of the much awaited IHG Rewards Club PointBreaks hotels that go for just 5,000 points per night. We posted sneak peek (access here) and the full preview (access here) last week.

IHG Rewards Club PointBreaks Confusion

Sometimes IHG releases sneak peek – other times they don’t. They usually release preview list but not always. Most of the time the hotels become bookable in the morning US time while other times they are delayed until afternoon.

You can access IHG’s web page for PointBreaks hotels here (this is not updated with the new hotels before they have gone live and most sought after hotels fully exhausted their PB inventory).

The issue is that IHG Rewards Club this time released TWO preview list that have some discrepancies on the participating hotels. Someone mistakenly updated one of the PointBreaks pages with all the hotels and made it public late Thursday/early Friday while IHG then sent slightly different list.

Here are the differences:

I have compared both of the two lists and subtracted the hotels that appear on both.

CANADA

ALBERTA
HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS & SUITES BONNYVILLE

BRITISH COLUMBIA
HOLIDAY INN HOTEL & SUITES KAMLOOPS

NOVA SCOTIA
HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS STELLARTON-NEW GLASGOW

ONTARIO
HOLIDAY INN KITCHENER – CAMBRIDGE CONF CTR

There are no Canada properties at all on the one list while the ones above appear on the other.

UPDATE: The Canada hotels above are indeed on the PB list this month 

FLORIDA
HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS & SUITES TAMPA NORTH – WESLEY CHAPEL

This property is only on one of the lists.

IDAHO
HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS & SUITES SANDPOINT NORTH

Iowa

Holiday Inn Express & Suites Sandpoint North

This one hotel appears under Idaho on one list and under Iowa on other.

WYOMING
HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS & SUITES LANDER

West Virginia

Holiday Inn Express & Suites Lander

This Lander hotel is under both Wyoming and West Virginia

Washington

Holiday Inn Express & Suites Lacey

This Lacey hotel only appears on one of the lists.

NEW JERSEY
HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS & SUITES DEMING MIMBRES VALLEY

New Jersey

Candlewood Suites Bordentown-Trenton

Staybridge Suites North Brunswick

And then New Jersey. Holiday Inn Express is gone while two other hotels appear.

Conclusion

Not sure what is the issue with having some hotels on one of the “preview” list while gone from the other and some appearing under more than one US state. I have requested clarification IHG spokesperson but won’t hear before Monday morning US time.

    Trying to book the hotel in GA and its not showing up for 5k points….. did that hotel not make the cut or something from preview to actual list?

      If you had specific nights in mind, those nights may be sold out already.

    Main web site is very glitchy since these posted at noon ET. App also had issues when I tried using it to book. However, I did succeed though on the click/confirm screen gave me an “incomplete” message but a few seconds later received an email confirmation of my booking. However, unable to retrieve it on the main site, nor can I retrieve my previous Madrid booking that I want to cancel.

    The NJ hotel disappeared because that hotel is actually in New Mexico and was listed twice.
