When IHG announced that there would be changing the award prices for around 450 of their hotels effective May 1st, I immediately asked my contact there if we could get a list of the hotels changing category early so that people could make bookings as needed. Unfortunately, I was told that IHG does not historically release a list of hotels changing category in advance of changes. I already kind of knew that, but I still had hope that they would change their stance on historical decision.
I had pretty much given up hope that a list would be announced ahead of time, but this afternoon there was a welcome email in my inbox with a “preview” of the IHG hotels that are changing category effective May 1st!
IHG says this list will be online for their customers “a few days before May 1st”, but for now you can view the PDF linked above. I hope to dig into the changes a bit more in the coming days, but I wanted to get the list up now as soon as I received it. Thumbs up to IHG for deciding to give their customers a head’s up on the details of the upcoming changes.
