There was more drama surrounding the latest release of IHG Rewards Club PointBreaks hotels than previously. The process used to be very orderly.
IHG Rewards Club just dumped the list on their website very late on Sunday night US time without making them bookable, removed the list entirely early AM US time on Monday and made the hotels available for booking couple of hours later.
You can access IHG Rewards Club PointBreaks page here.
I thought that it would be a right time to remind readers how fast some of the hotels drop off from the list.
There were 135 hotels on the list and the following 35 were removed within the first 24 hours:
HOLIDAY INN ABU DHABI

Being able to get one or more PointBreaks bookings in has really become the survival of the fittest in a sense that you really need to know when the new batch is released because the most sought after properties are gone fast.
The hotels in the PointBreaks list used to linger around sometimes all the way until the end in the 2000’s.
