Yes I know, wasn't discussing that. Op was complaining that a hotel that he stayed in last year @ 5k is 10k this yr.
And people seem to be agreeing that doubling the redemption rate for a pretty lackluster hotel is a big change. Pretty much halves the cpp since most of these hotels only go for about $100/night anyway.

Why are you looking at it as doubling the redemption rate? Last year they halved it.
And what am I supposed to be learning? That ihg made a change? I know they did. And the change isn't, that the hotel that you went to last year is now double the points.

Until this year, Pointbreaks was 5k/night no matter which property. This year, the Pointbreaks rate for the identical property I booked at 5k/night last year became 10k/night. It would be one thing if they made better hotels available at 10k/night or 15k/night. But they didn't. Not sure what's complicated here.

I got stuck on "identical property", hence my non-response.
