IHG has just released their new PointBreaks list, so if you might be interested in making a booking, check out the list now (especially as IHG didn’t release a preview list this time around, so all of these hotels come as a surprise).


The InterContinental Kiev is on the new list

IHG’s revamped PointBreaks promotion

At the beginning of the year IHG revamped their PointBreaks promotion. This is a promotion they’ve been offering on a quarterly basis for years, which allows you to book select hotels for just 5,000 points per night. Given that I value IHG points at ~0.5 cents each, that’s the equivalent of paying just ~$25 per night for a hotel room, which is a steal.

The issue is that the quality of the hotels on the lists had been gradually decreasing over the years, to the point that many of us didn’t even bother trying with the promotion anymore. It was great if you happened to be traveling to somewhere that had a PointBreaks hotel, but otherwise just wasn’t worth going out of your way for.

So IHG changed up their PointBreaks promotion earlier this year, and more specifically, now charges 5,000, 10,000, or 15,000 points per night through PointBreaks. IHG is promising that they’ll offer more hotels than in the past, and presumably higher quality hotels as well.

The next PointBreaks list has just gone live, and is valid for stays through November 30, 2018. The better hotels tend to sell out pretty quickly (as there are capacity constraints), so you’ll want to book sooner rather than later.

You can also use Cash & Points

Now that some PointBreaks hotels cost 10,000 and 15,000 points per night, you can redeem part points and part cash for these bookings, to lower the price by 5,000 to 10,000 points per night. The price varies by property, but typically you can expect to pay about $50 to lower the cost by 5,000 points, and to pay $80 to lower the cost by 10,000 points. Personally I don’t think this represents a very good deal.

Get a fourth night free with the IHG Premier Card

While this is a great promotion, there’s potentially a way to get even more value. Specifically, if you have the IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card then you get the fourth night free on award redemptions, including on PointBreaks bookings.

IHG’s new PointBreaks list

Below is IHG’s full PointBreaks list, though let me first note that there are 11 InterContinentals on the list, which is way more than usual:


The InterContinental Mendoza is on the new list

Those are some really solid properties.

  1. QO Amsterdam? Never heard of the brand! Are they starting yet another new brand that they formally have not introduced or maybe a collection of independent hotels like Curio, Tapestry, Luxury Collection and/or Autograph Collection.

  2. How much do you guys tipycally pay for a stay at an IHG property in Europe??
    Is breakfast always included?

    I stayed at the one in Warsaw and it was super super. Pool on the top floor and delicious breakfast!!

  3. I know more about the QO Amsterdam than anybody who has never stayed there should! I had booked a stay there in late March on IHG points just after its announced opening, but alas, there were delays so a few days before we were re-accommodated at the Holiday Inn. The QO guest relations manager felt bad about the forced switch, so he comped us drinks and several small plates at their gorgeous rooftop restaurant (which had already opened) and gave us a private tour of a finished guestroom, which was beautiful in a modern/minimalist sort of way.

    He explained that it was originally supposed to be a Crown Plaza property, but because of its uniqueness (rooftop greenhouse, other eco-friendly features) the developers lobbied for separate branding. It may be the only QO ever, or the prototype for a new brand. When I booked it was a 30K/night property, but has the feel of one that should be priced at 50K, so getting it at a 15K Point Break is a steal. It’s a bit outside of central Amsterdam, but next to a train stop and no more than 10-12 minutes to Dam Square.

  4. Will the IHG Premier Card fourth night free benefit apply if I book the hotel I want now and apply for & get the card later? Or do I have to be a cardmember at time of booking?

  5. I usually stay in the InterContinental Westlake when I’m in Hanoi, but I’m trying the Landmark72. Just switched my reservation for 5 days at the beginning of November.
    Great timing!

  6. Got the Crowne Plaza Berlin for 5 nights in early October. First time I’ve been legitimately thrilled about Points break.
