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?

What do you mean? They always changed the pointsbreaks locations.

I thought you were referring to the fact that Pointbreaks have always been 5K until now.  Yes, the hotel list always changes.

Sure they always changed the hotel locations, but all hotels on the list were 5000 points. They slowly almost removed all IC and then started offering out of the way locations, and now went from 5k to 15k for the near decent ones, I see this as a big change .

Yes. This may be my first season not going due to all these changes.

Yes I know, wasn't discussing that. Op was complaining that a hotel that he stayed in last year @ 5k is 10k this yr.
