IHG Reward Club has now released the PointBreaks for May 27 and July 31, 2014 period. There are 150 hotels on the list.
The hotels below are available for booking at 5,000 IHG Reward Club points per night as long as inventory is available.
POINTBREAKS ARE NOW BOOKABLE AND WE ARE COMPILING A LIST AND WILL CONTINUOUSLY UPDATE THIS POST. WE HAVE NOW UPDATED THE POST WITH THE LIST PROVIDED BY IHG. THE BOOKING WENT ACTIVE AT 9:20AM EDT.
You can access IHG’s web page for PointBreaks here or you can use property specific links below.
Note that IHG has changed the Terms and conditions when it comes to PointBreaks. You are not supposed to book more than TWO PointBreaks reservations for any one hotel on the list. A reservation can be for as many nights a you wish of inventory exists.
Here are my advice for booking PointBreaks nights (revised)
1. You should get the arrival date right. It is not usually possible to change the arrival date without entirely canceling the reservation and rebooking. If the hotel is no longer available for 5,000 points per night, this won’t work.
2. You should be able to depart early and receive points refund for the nights not used. This is based on my personal past experience, but of course IHG can change this without notice.
3. You should not book more than two reservations for any one PointBreaks hotel per IHG Reward account. IHG may otherwise freeze your IHG Rewards account, cancel any outstanding award reservations and forfeit all the points. You can use family members to book more than reservation per PointBreaks hotels if required.
4. The most popular PointBreaks hotels will drop off from the list fast.

Let’s hope that the availability would last longer than on previous PointBreaks rounds. As I am going to be in Bangkok later this week/early next week, I may try to book the Crowne Plaza for few nights.
