IHG changed up their PointBreaks promotion earlier this year, and more specifically, now charges 5,000, 10,000, or 15,000 points per night through PointBreaks. IHG is promising that they’ll offer more hotels than in the past, and presumably higher quality hotels as well.

The next PointBreaks list has just gone live, and is valid for stays through November 30, 2018. The better hotels tend to sell out pretty quickly (as there are capacity constraints), so you’ll want to book sooner rather than later.

This time, the quality of hotels have drastically gone up. There are so many properties on this list which I would love to stay at. 

You can also use Cash & Points

Now that some PointBreaks hotels cost 10,000 and 15,000 points per night, you can redeem part points and part cash for these bookings, to lower the price by 5,000 to 10,000 points per night. The price varies by property, but typically you can expect to pay about $50 to lower the cost by 5,000 points, and to pay $80 to lower the cost by 10,000 points. Personally, I don’t think this represents a very good deal.


IHG’s new PointBreaks list

Below is IHG’s full PointBreaks list, though let me first note that there are 11 InterContinentals on the list, which is way more than usual:


The InterContinental Ljubljana is on the new list

Those are some really solid properties.

Below is the full list of IHG hotels on the list.
