Last week, I was researching InterContinental pricing for using the two-for-one weekend voucher that you get when signing up for the Ambassador program or when your status is renewed.
InterContinental merely directs you to their Ambassador page where you need to log in order to see the prices. If you haven’t purchased the package and would like to check the pricing using the voucher, you are basically lost.
You can access InterContinental’s web page for Ambassador program here.
The link that InterContinental refers you to go to book the 2-4-1 rate is InterContinental.com/AMBweekend. You can, however, use this link and then just choose the “Ambassador Certificate” rate from the drop down menu. No logging in to your IHG Rewards Club/Ambassador account is required.
When searching for the free weekend night rates, remember that they are only valid for Friday to Sunday nights in the west and Thursday to Saturday in the Middle East.
Note that, although the certificate should be only used for standard accommodations, there are many hotels that have loaded this rate plan for higher category rooms and suites as well.
The online booking system gives you the price for each of the nights separate, but the hotel will only charge for the first night.
You can book this rate even before your have purchased the Ambassador membership to lock in savings, but remember that it can take 2 to 8 weeks to get the membership package with the voucher that you absolutely need to turn in at the time of checking in.
The Ambassador free weekend night rates are based on best flexible rates and usually cancelable until day of arrival, although always check the rate rules.
If you tend to pay for suites at InterContinental hotels, you can have some significant savings by signing up for the Ambassador program and using the free weekend night voucher.
Here Are Price Displays For January Weekend Stays:
InterContinental Hong Kong
The Ambassador free weekend night voucher rates are loaded up to a deluxe suite.
InterContinental London Park Lane
Plenty of opportunities to book one of the higher category suites here too.
This hotel has way too many room types. The Ambassador free weekend night cert is available for up to Club Deluxe Room.
InterContinental Amstel Amsterdam
You can even book the Royal Suite by using the certificate.
If you book base level rooms, you really don’t get the second night free because the rate is based on the Best Flexible one for the days that you are planning to stay at. Many hotels are offering discounted rates over the weekend and you cannot apply the Ambassador free weekend night voucher towards them.
This is especially a good deal if you tend to book premium suites at any of these properties. You can easily save the $200 sign up fee most of the time in just one stay.
