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 .
I was the Best,still the Best, and will always be the Best.

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.

And people seem to be agreeing that doubling the redemption rate for a pretty lackluster hotel is a big change. Pretty much halves the cpp since most of these hotels only go for about $100/night anyway.

Why are you looking at it as doubling the redemption rate? Last year they halved it.
And what am I supposed to be learning? That ihg made a change? I know they did. And the change isn't, that the hotel that you went to last year is now double the points.

Until this year, Pointbreaks was 5k/night no matter which property. This year, the Pointbreaks rate for the identical property I booked at 5k/night last year became 10k/night. It would be one thing if they made better hotels available at 10k/night or 15k/night. But they didn't. Not sure what's complicated here.

I got stuck on "identical property", hence my non-response.

I'm about to cancel a res at the Candlewood Suites Bordentown-Trenton, NJ. Just a heads up if anyone wants to re-check availability.
