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. This upcoming one will probably be especially useful for some, since it covers stay over peak summer dates.

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 April 24 and July 31, 2017. Here’s the full list, sorted by region:

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.

  1. Agreed, it’s not the quality of hotels that’s the issues but the locations. I’m fine in a low end IHG property in a desirable destination, but these are far far off the path of most tourists.

    The list for Asia is absolutely dismal and useless, and many countries there have cheap cash hotels so there’s no excuse for this.

  2. I would gladly pay 10k, 15k, or even 20k points for hotels that are actually located in decent spots. A 5k hotel in a place most people wouldn’t stay for free is useless to pretty much everyone. I’m not asking for Holiday Inn Aruba or the Intercontinental Boston, but they really need to do better than this!

  3. Amazingly, I’ve stayed in three of the hotels on this list. All of them are in America. Also, I’ll be in Budapest and Berlin next month. Unfortunately, I have to agree with some of the others who’ve commented on the locations of the hotels. It hardly seems worth the savings.

  4. A few years ago we drove from Peru to the south end of the Pan Pacific Highway (Puerto Monte Chile) and back. Luckily we discovered that almost all the hotels in Chile along the coast were participating in this offer. We saved a fortune. So for some people in the world this might just be of some benefit, but obviously not for all.

  5. I couldn’t make it to the end of that list because it was so boring, boring, boring, tedious, boring, yawnful, tedious, boring…

  6. Oh, wow, the Holiday Inn Express in Delano! Delano, the Gateway to Bakersfield! (And yes, I’ve been to Delano, or at least through it.)

    Seriously, this is a really weak list.

    So weak, in fact, that it’s driven me into language-pedant mode: I think you meant to say “Mexico and Central America”, as Brazil is considered part of “Latin America”. Basically, all the countries south of the Rio Grande except Belize, French Guyana, Guyana, and Suriname are Latin American countries, since the standard definition is countries that have either Spanish or Portuguese as their primary (or at least official) language. (If you really want full-on pedantry, there are some purists who argue that the definition should include all Romance-language countries, which would put French Guyana and – if you consider major subdivisions of countries – Quebec in “Latin America”.

    But seriously, IHG, we’re going into the slower season for Florida, you couldn’t throw in at least one hotel in Florida more desirable than Lakeland South?

  7. Candlewood Suites Bartlesville East

    Easily in the running for the IHG property most often on the Point Break list. Bartlesville is not quite a destination city. Oddly enough the contractors working for the oil & gas companies in the area are more often than not completely unaware of the bargain. I commuted from Tulsa to Bartlesville and saved time and money via the Point Break listing. During a large project I booked the hotel week days on/off for two months via Point Breaks.

  8. Why do they even bother with this crap? Seriously, it just demeans the brand. This needs to be put to rest, like the BPG.

  9. But who among us would want to miss the beautiful Canadian province that is Saskatchewan and its capital city, Regina (pronounced like “Vagina”), for a mere 5,000 points?
