IHG Rewards Club has launched a new offer for stays at eight Kimpton hotels in the US through March 31, 2020.
Members that book a specific rate plan by January 28 can earn 10,000 bonus points per night.
IHG Rewards Club Spire Elite members can enjoy richer benefits for stays in Greater China (China, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan) than elsewhere. IHG has now updated the benefits matrix for the region.
The program has no guaranteed benefits for elite members such as early/late check-out, breakfast, or lounge access beyond 100% base points bonus outside of this area.
Eligible members get Platinum-status for 90 days, during which they must consume 5 nights to keep it through the end of 2020. Members can also earn up to 15,000 bonus points.
