IHG Rewards Club has made some changes to its website an the old link we had up for checking the prices for the Ambassador free weekend night voucher went dead.
InterContinental has always made checking the free weekend night price quite difficult. You need to log into your Ambassador account and then follow few links. You can, however, check the prices using the link below and decide if signing up for the Ambassador program makes sense for you.
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. No logging in to your IHG Rewards Club/Ambassador account is required.
Here are thing to consider:
- 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 some displays for a stay using the Ambassador free weekend night voucher:
InterContinental Park Lane
InterContinental Le Moana
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. 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.
The certificate states that it is not available for suites. Many properties have this rate plan loaded for them as well, however.
