InterContinental Alliance Resorts are properties that aren't actually part of the IHG portfolio (like hotels branded as InterContinental, Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza, etc...) but which have an agreement with IHG to participate in the IHG Rewards program and, to a degree, the InterContinental Ambassador program.
IHG is currently running two sales which are offering between 20% and 35% discount on properties in various regions of the world. The first sale is a 'Global Sale' which has been running for a few weeks while the second sale launched just a few days ago and is limited to select IHG properties in Japan and the Asia-Pacific region.
There have been a few worthwhile Amex offers doing the rounds of late with Hilton featuring heavily in the US, a rare offer on Hilton properties in Europe, a fantastic deal for anyone looking to buy some Rimowa luggage and, just recently, deals for fans of Marriott and MGM Resorts. All these deals have had their own posts here on Traveling for Miles but there are three other deals that I haven't yet written about and I'd like to put that right here and now.
Here's a hotel promotion that really couldn't be any simpler: Between now and the end of the year travelers can collect up to 1,000 bonus Avios each time they stay at one of Marriott's European properties.
Out of all the hotel chains Hilton definitely features the most when it comes to the Amex offers I see in my accounts and there have been a number of offers running since the beginning of March. Now there's a new rebate appearing in targeted Amex accounts which offers up to 20% back on bookings made at Hilton properties in Europe.
TopCashback is currently offering a great deal of 10% cash back for anyone looking to make a booking with IHG's Holiday Inn brand and is also offering 8% cash back on a number of other IHG brands like InterContinental and EVEN hotels.
Hyatt's latest sale is currently live and is offering up to 20% off the majority of Hyatt brands worldwide through the end of summer. No registration is required but you should be aware of the terms and conditions to ensure you're booking a rate that works for you.
Accor Hotels has launched a 'super sale' in which it's offering free breakfast and 30% off the best flexible unrestricted rate for bookings made on or before 24 May 2019. The sale applies to the majority of hotels in Accor's worldwide portfolio which includes high-end brands such as Sofitel and Fairmont as well as mid-tier brands such as Novotel and Pullman.
Hotels may be seeing record occupancy rates but, with the current pace of expansion, there are still a lot of rooms that need to be filled so hotel sales are as plentiful as ever. Today it's IHG's turn to launch a sale and this one covers most of the hotelier's worldwide portfolio.
IHG has just unveiled the latest brand it is introducing into its portfolio at a conference in Las Vegas and, with it, the hotelier says it's looking to target an estimated $18bn industry segment focusing on all-suite properties in the upper-midscale sector of the market.
