As I posted about yesterday, IHG Rewards Club’s next PointBreaks list will be bookable starting on Monday. PointBreaks is one of IHG’s best promotions, where you can book select hotels for only 5,000 points per night. I value those points at ~0.5 cents each, so to me that’s like booking select hotels for just ~$25 per night.

As you’d expect, for the most part they’re not putting their best hotels on the list, so don’t expect to score the InterContinental Sydney or Paris through this offer. However, they do often have some decent properties on the list, with the best hotels selling out quickest.

Therefore it’s always worth taking a look at the PointBreaks list before it actually becomes bookable, so that you can potentially plan your travels and book the second the list goes live in Monday.

IHG has now released the list of 100+ properties that will be participating in the next round of PointBreaks, valid for bookings between January 30 and April 30, 2017. Here’s the full list, sorted by region:

As you can see, there are two InterContinental hotels on the list — the Intercontinental Maracaibo and Intercontinental Real Santo Domingo. However, there are lots of useful city hotels from other brands in major markets.

Keep in mind that if you have the IHG® Rewards Club Select Credit Card, you get a 10% refund on points redemptions, for a refund of up to 100,000 points per year. That lowers the cost per award night for those with the card to 4,500 points, which is even better.

Arguably there are even better benefits to the card, including Platinum status for as long as you have the card, plus an annual free night certificate, valid at any IHG property in the world.

Anyone planning on booking a hotel on the first PointBreaks list of 2017?

  1. I NEVER NEVER thought I would find a use for the pointsbreaks… I happen to be going to Santo Domingo very soon and the IC is the nicest hotel in the city and its brand new. $300 a night!! I am more than happy !!

  2. I watched this list for a long time while I was in Europe, and it was always some garbage dump on a motorway in England on the list. Now I see the Indigo in Krakow?!?! Wish I was still able to take advantage of that!

  3. I’d guess the Candlewood Suites near Disneyland will go pretty fast. This list is a bunch of “meh” for North America though, and kinda “meh” too for everywhere else. Maybe the HIX near FRA is useful?

  4. > an annual free night certificate, valid at any IHG property in the world.

    If available. Don’t bother trying to book a free night at an Intercontinental in NYC, SF, etc.

  5. @Robert F. My wife and I used our free night certs at the Intercontinental Times Square last October and with our new free night certs we’ve reserved 2 nights at the Intercontinental London Park Lane in April. So it can be done. It’s worth the $49/yr to us.

  6. The annual free night certificate is an option for the IC hotels in the major cities such as NYC and San Francisco. I have used the annual free night certificate at both ICs in San Francisco and the IC Times Square and the Willard.

  7. The Intercontinental Sydney is one of their BEST hotels ???? Sure I’m guessing its the showers over tiny baths complete with sticky plastic shower curtains that gets them on the “best” list? I’ve seen better bathrooms in budget Highway motels.
