As a new Chase IHG Credit Card holder, and having had success in being matched to the better offer of 100,000 points, I’m excited because now the real fun begins. How do I spend all those points I’ll acquire?! As a Hyatt and SPG loyalist, I had some research to do about the IHG brand, so I’ve been studying up on IHG. There are 10 hotel brands within IHG, with more than 5,000 hotels in over 100 countries. That’s a lot of choices #colormeconfused, I need your help!
Some of the brands seems interesting. There are only 6 EVEN Hotels, and they are all within the US. IHG says this brand is designed for health-conscious travelers and for breakfast and dinner they serve healthy and organic foods. Then there’s the Hotel Indigo brand. These are boutique hotels, so each location has a unique design, which is meant to reflect the character and history of the locale it is in. The InterContinental Hotels and Resorts are their luxury hotel brand. Could be fun to experience these hotels.
Then I began looking at locations for some IHG hotels. Wow, they really do have a large footprint. In Europe, I found Indigo properties in Barcelona and Rome, and InterContinental hotels in a few cities, such as London, Amsterdam, and Paris. In Asia, IHG has hotels in Singapore, Vietnam, and Hong Kong. And in South and Central America, I saw some good choices in Lima, Buenos Aires, Santiago, Quito, Panama, and Brazil.
I still have a bunch of travel plans to make for next year, so that’s why I need your input. I want to use my IHG points and some of the places I’m thinking about traveling to have IHG properties. And maybe based on some of the IHG hotel availabilities, I might add a few destinations to my travels. It’s good to be flexible in travel choices.
So please chip in and let me know which IHG properties you’d recommend! Or not recommend. That’s useful for me to know, too. Which IHG hotels have you heard about that are on your must-try list? Any IHG hotel you’d like to see a hotel review of? I noticed here at TWG we’re lacking in IHG hotel reviews :(
I’d like to go from #colormeconfused to #bookedsomeIHGhotels, so thanks for your help, everyone. I’m looking forward to your advice!
