The new PointsBreak list from IHG Rewards, my favourite hotel promotion, is now out. Basically, every quarter, IHG charges only 5,000 points per reward night at participating hotels.
In the past, some members have blocked out entire months by making multiple reservations, without confirmation they will actually stay at the hotel, only to cancel the reservation as they get closer to the date.
IHG recently changed its terms and conditions to restrict Pointbreaks reservations to only 2 per hotel. This is probably a good change to prevent abuse of the program, because when someone locks up the available rooms, it prevents people, who actually intend on staying at the hotel, from taking advantage of the promotion.
Below is a list of Canadian hotels that made it to the most recent PointsBreak list:
- Holiday Inn Express And Suites Brampton
- Staybridge Suites Oakville-Burlington
- Crowne Plaza Hamilton Hotel
