This rate can be booked a maximum of 30 days before arrival and for 7 nights at a time and two rooms. Sometimes there is availability loaded by individual properties further out as well.
The terms and conditions also state that this rate is not eligible for IHG Rewards points and thus won’t be a qualifying one towards any promotions that they might have.
The main advantage of this rate plan is the flexibility. It is usually cancelable for up to 4 PM the same day (always check the requirements of the individual hotels).
The rate requires one night deposit at the time of booking that is refundable if canceled per the rate rules.
