These Points Breaks are one of the best aspects of the IHG’s Priority Club. They are highly discounted hotel awards, for the next couple of months, released four times a year. When IHG first introduced this program, it was promoted quite heavily. For the past couple of years not so.
So the deal here is that, regardless of the brand, the reward night only costs 5000 Priority Club point per night. This is exceptional value considering that some of the InterContinental hotels on the list normally go for 30000 Priority Club points per night or more.
But, you need to act fast. Although these discounted awards are valid for stays until January 31st, 2012, there is no guarantee that all the properties will stay on the list. Some of the more popular properties are most likely gone within days.

Here are the properties that are currently on sale. I have bolded the ones that I feel are the best bang, or points for that matter, for the buck. The InterContinental in Santiago is very nice, as is the one in Hanoi. I have been to both. Haven’t been to the InterContinental Hotels in China but they must offer a very good value.
