Stay At These Hotels For 5,000 Points Per Night – IHG Pointbreaks

Pointbreaks

Advertiser Disclosure

When it comes to free hotel nights, all hotel points are certainly not created equal. Being able to stay in a hotel for only 5,000 points per night is nothing unusual for most hotel chains – 5,000 points gets you 1 night at a category 1 Hyatt and 1 night at a category 2 Starwood, for example.

What makes this very special is the regular release of many hotels in several categories with IHG being “on sale” for only 5,000 points per night. Some of these hotels may regularly go for 50,000 points per night! Not only that, but IHG points are actually some of the cheapest hotel points to get so that you can literally buy points to stay at any of these hotels for only $35 per night!

IHG PointBreak Hotel List

Pointbreaks

The EVEN Hotel Rockville outside of DC for only 5K points per night!

The following list of hotels are available for only 5,000 points per night for reservations through May 31, 2015. Remember, you cannot make more than two reservations per hotel during this booking period (you can still book multiple reservations at various hotels, just not more than two at one property). These will be bookable beginning Wednesday, February 25th for stays from February 25 – May 31, 2015.

Getting the points

There are a variety of ways to get the points necessary for PointBreak hotels. The one thing that I would only do as a last resort is to use Ultimate Rewards. Yes, these hotels are a fantastic value, but 5,000 Ultimate Reward points can be worth, at the minimum, $62. For many of us, we can find common value closer to $75 – $85 for Ultimate Reward points when transferred to partners like Southwest, Hyatt, United, and Singapore. So, only transfer if you cannot obtain points through one of these other methods.

A great way to get a bundle of IHG points is through the ihg credit card which you can read about here. Another way is through purchasing ihg points which you can read about here. Finally, though they may not be useful to you during this round, check out your offer from the “Set Your Sights” promotion – read about it here.

Notable Hotels

I was really hoping for something in the Boston vicinity since this booking period covers the Boston Marathon, but of course there are no hotels in Boston on the list. When it comes to IHG’s high end Intercontinental brands, there are two on this list and both are in Asia – the InterContinental Lhasa Paradise in China and the InterContinental Phnom Penh in Cambodia.

IHG’s boutique brand, Indigo, has one on the list this time – Hotel Indigo San Jose Forum in Costa Rica. Other than that, if you are looking at escaping some of this cold weather, there are many US hotels on the list that are in warmer climates. The nice thing about a winter escape is that the hotel really does not have to be an Intercontinental to give you great value – you would most likely be spending a majority of the time out in the sun!

There is one of IHG’s newer EVEN brand hotels on this list – the Even Hotels Rockville outside of Washington DC. Having stayed in Rockville years ago with my relatives I know it is a beautiful area within easy reach of all that is in DC. It should make a nice place to start such a vacation, especially for the spring season! Not to mention, the EVEN difference of having wellness equipment in rooms to help you keep your fitness up without leaving the room.
