The IHG Rewards Club PointBreaks list just got a refresh. IHG Rewards Club members can book discounted award nights at participating hotels on the list, which are offering rooms this summer for just 5,000, 10,000 or 15,000 points per night. This round of PointBreaks stays is available to book through Aug. 31, 2019, but you’ll have to act fast to get a room at some of the most popular properties. Availability is limited and restrictions do apply.
Here are some of the highlights from the latest list.
The hotels at this award level are not in major cities, but they could work if you’re already planning a trip in the area. If you’re a car enthusiast and happen to be in Germany this summer, you might find yourself right at home at the Holiday Inn Leipzig - Günthersdorf. It’s a good jumping-off point to check out the nearby BMW plant and the Porsche Center. Back in the U.S., you might take a pit stop between Dallas and Oklahoma City at Wichita Falls, Texas. Stay in a suite with a fully stocked kitchen for only 5,000 points per night at Candlewood Suites Wichita Falls @ Maurine St.
This level offers several different IHG hotel brands across the U.S. and the world. The Crowne Plaza Suites Pittsburgh South is near a light-rail metro station that can whisk you to downtown Pittsburgh. It’s not a bad option if you want to explore the Steel City’s main attractions. For a more centrally located hotel, the Holiday Inn Express Panama Distrito Financiero in Panama City might fit the bill. You don’t want to miss some of the traditional dishes of Panama like ceviche and sancocho (chicken soup) at the nearby restaurants.
Some of IHG’s most luxurious brands have participating hotels at this award level. The EVEN hotels are known for their wellness initiatives like upscale hotel gyms and an in-room workout space. You could try it out for yourself at the EVEN Hotel Miami - Airport or the EVEN Hotel Omaha Downtown. Travelers in the U.K. might also want to check out The Met Hotel Leeds, a classy Victorian hotel that opened in the late 1800s.
