IHG runs a promo called Point Breaks for certain hotels every few months. These hotels are located around the world and can be had for a mere 5,000 points per night. This new period of bookings occur between November 1 – January 31. The full list will be available on Friday but if you would like to take a look at the preview, hop on over to this site.
The availability is limited but if you have a marathon in the coming months and have not yet secured your hotel room, you will want to check back when the full list posts to see if there is something in the city you are running in. These are great deals!
