New list to be released on 01-29.

Will be 5k, 10k or 15k a night instead of standard 5k. It will feature more hotels to choose from.

My guess is that means less savings.

Personally I think the change is a positive. For the past few years the 5K list was mostly a bunch of Holiday Inn's and Staybridge / CS off the highway, in middle of nowhere. This will allow them to offer a deal at higher-end properties, which they would not have offered for 5K.

Although there was always one or two deals. You can be assured there won't be any now. It will be more of a discount now than a deal.

Just paid 10k/night for a hotel I got for 5k/night last year on the same weekend. Way to go IHG!

Same here, booked a holiday inn for 10k, last year was 5k, and the cash rate is $98, not really worth it.

+1. 10k isn't that much of a bargain for a localish hotel.  At that rate there are comparable hotels in other chains which are much closer.

What do you expect to get out of ihg? Over 1 cpp ($98+taxes) is a very decent redemption imo.

Lol, you expected it to be 5k points forever?

Well, it's been that way for years now, hasn't it?
