IHG Rewards Club has a promotion of double airline miles for stays from now until July 31, 2014. This offer is good at all participating properties in Asia, Australasia, Africa, and the Middle East. In addition, if you present your frequent flyer card during check-in you’ll be credited 20% for all food and beverage.
Here’s the full list of participating locations.
To see if this was a good deal, I went to check the rates for the InterContinental Hotel, at OR Tambo Airport in Johannesburg, SA, but realized that it wasn’t a participating property. Next, I tried the InterContinental Phnom Penh, selecting random weekend dates of July 12- July 14, 2014. The price was $185 a night, but when I removed the promotion, I found…a lower rate.
Reading the fine print I also saw, “20% F&B Discount excludes Room Service”. That settled it for me, since I would be more likely to order room service than eat in the restaurant. This isn’t a good promotion for me, but if you plan on eating in the restaurants at some of the pricier properties you may not mind paying more for the room in exchange for the discount and miles.
