lack of IHG and other points hotels in Israel
« on: July 07, 2023, 12:36:49 AM »
Is there any way get IHG to add some Israel hotels back to their portfolio? I opened a bunch of IHG cards before covid to use in Israel and by the time covid was over there were no points hotels left in the dead sea and other places. It's really frustrating since IHG is supposed to be great in Europe, but what about Israel? Is there anything we can do to get hotels in Israel back in their portfolio?

(Also other hotel points. Right now most are in Tel Aviv. Would be great if we had options in Jerusalem, Eilat and the Dead Sea!)

Yes extremely frustrating outside of Tel Aviv area.  Unfortunately looks like the hotels left the IHG group or vice versa.  Anyway this is another reason Dan has recommended stocking up on hybrid points

I think Wyndham still has options in Jerusalem?

They added the Kempinski TA and the Six senses shaharut which is more than any other program has done recently and are supposedly opening a IC next door to the Plaza in JLM.

anybody ever stay here with points?

seems like an exorbitant points amount unless this place is out of this world?
