Ihg or the actual hotel?
Called to book through IHG and they called the hotel to confirm before i booked the prepaid rate. Once i paid, they called the hotel and they upgraded me.

I booked for the first week in August. There was space, but they usually only do it upon arrival. I played up the Spire status and had IHG call the hotel and see if they could confirm the suite now.

But IHG just told me that only the account holder is allowed, how do I get John Doe to check-in using my free anniversary to checkin?!!!

 I know marriott works that you call in the hotel  front desk manager and say your spouse is coming late etc..

Is selling points allowed on DDF? A friend of mine is asking how much he can sell 70K IHG for.

Buying and selling is not allowed on DDF.

There is a banner on DDMS with a mileage broker who your friend can call.

Thanks
There is a thread for "discussing" selling miles, so you can find out there how much it's worth.

Did you ask?

I've found IHG to be the stingiest with upgrades. And that's with Plat status.

3 different hotels also lied to me about the availability of any upgraded rooms.
