Sure. If you pay full amount in points.

Tax? Resort fee?

Any tips on reserving a 3 night stay using free night certs bought from the forums to keep a low profile?

To answer my own question to benefit everyone else. Only until I got to the check out page did they IHG tell me I can pay the whole thing with points.

IHG launched a new status you can buy for $200 or 40k points (bad value for points):

https://www.ihg.com/intercontinental/hotels/gb/en/ambassador/join?offerId

TL:DR- Free weekend night (on 2nd night of reservation - looks like 1 per year), guaranteed 1 tier upgrade, and extra snack/drink credit.

Anyone have more details on it? Could be a good deal if the weekend night is per stay, as opposed to annually.

IHG Elite Status
Extra benefits only apply at IHG hotels.

If anyone is a member of this program, please PM me as I want to price out a weekend through that portal vs. the listed price.

Plat elite status from the chase CC.
What's chances of an upgrade on a crown plaza hotel.
Do they confirm upgrades before or only at the hotel?

In general I have had good luck with upgrades with Platinum status. Which hotel specifically?

most IHG properties will only upgrade Spire, not PLAT.
