Best Properties to Enjoy if Your Free Night Certificate is Issued Before May 1, 2019
Obviously you want to get the most out of your free night, right? So, what are some of the best, coolest and most luxurious properties you can stay at with certificates issued before May 1?
InterContinental Hong Kong
This one is a no-brainer. The InterContinental Hong Kong has an amazing location right on Victoria Harbour, so you get views of the water and skyline.
This one also comes with awesome views of a harbor, in this case, Darling Harbour. You’ll also be able to spot the beautiful Sydney Opera House from your window.
InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown
A relatively new property, the InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown was built in 2017. It’s already a favorite with celebs and the U.S. president, too, so you know there’s got to be a high level of luxury there.
InterContinental Hotels & Resorts Resort and Spa Moorea
It’s French Polynesia. A free night in the South Pacific. Just look at the picture and imagine yourself there. Need we say more?
Best Properties to Enjoy if Your Free Night Certificate is Issued After May 1, 2019
If your free night certificate is issued after May 1, 2019, you still don’t have to worry about getting stuck with a less-than-spectacular hotel. Check out some of these options.
InterContinental Athenaeum, Athens
With views of the Acropolis, you can’t go wrong. The modern luxury, great location and more than 500 guestrooms all offer the high standard you’ve come to expect from the InterContinental brand.
InterContinental Doha, Qatar
This property sits on Doha’s longest private beach, in the middle of practically an oasis. There are 10 bars and restaurants, so you could enjoy an amazing vacation without ever even leaving the property.
InterContinental Shanghai Ruijin
This hotel boasts some big history. It was once the state guest house of Shanghai, as well as a Communist Party headquarters. Check out the little touches of the past left throughout each room, mixed in with some modern-day amenities.
Maximize This Offer
The best way to maximize this offer is to combine a few great opportunities in order to get five nights at an amazing hotel for 120,000 points. It’s a bargain.
How do you do it?
You’re going to want to combine the “fourth award night free” IHG® Rewards Club Premier perk with the IHG® Rewards Club Premier Card anniversary certificate.
- Book four nights for 40,000 points (if you have the pre-May 1 certificate), and get one free
- Book your fifth night using the certificate
Again, that’s five nights at a 40,000-point tier hotel, for only 120,000 points.
