Holiday Inn Rooms For 5000 Priority Club Points Per Night

Found 26th Nov 2011
The Priority Club Rewards scheme is a loyalty scheme for Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Crowne Plaza and a few other brands. You typically get ~ 1500 points for each stay in a hotel from the Holiday Inn group.

Normally it costs ~ 15000 or more points to get a free overnight stay in a hotel. However, they also have "PointsBreaks" where you can stay for a night for 5000 points. These are only available for a handful of hotels. They changed to a new set a couple of days ago. You can book nights through to the end of January 2012.

There is limited availability for the rooms, so you need to be quick to get the popular dates and hotels. I suspect there won't be such a rush for the hotel in Kazakhstan.

Nice one! 2 nights in Brents Cross booked.

Voted HOT! I usually exchange 5000 points for a buffet breakfast!

They have been running the 5000 point nights for the last few years. They change the location of the hotels on a regular basis.

This is the Points Breaks deal, which they have been doing for years, great deal, but defiantly not new.

5000 points for an overnight stay is definitely not new. However, until 3 days ago, you could book a Points Break deal for one of 2 or 3 hotels, so long as you stayed there before the end of November. This is a new selection of hotels, and you can stay over the Christmas holidays.

Some of them are in the back of beyond (Almaty is a £500 flight away), but a number of them are in places that you might want to visit, and that you could get to without too much hassle (eg Berlin, Milan, Madrid, Strasbourg).

thnaks very much for this... had 16,000 points so booked 3 nights at brent cross for the family the week before xmas!...great hotel can drive from manchester and park for 5 per night...really good spot..

how did you find out about it...im a priority member but never got a mail about this for example?

When I was staying in Expresses a lot for work, colleagues told me about it; google search for Priority Club PointBreaks, your right, it isn't publicised heavily. The hotels on offer change regularly, so if you are planning on going somewhere, book them, you can always cancel and get you points back if you change your mind.

I use the Firefox Update Scanner plug in updatescanner.mozdev.org/en/…tml to keep an eye on changes to this page:

ichotelsgroup.com/h/d…mp;

You can get to that page if you log onto the Priority Club site, but you need to click on about 5 different links to get there.

I wanted to book two rooms, for two adults and two kids. Some hotels will have rooms where you can sleep 4. With others, you will need to specify that you want to book two rooms. I did that with the hotel at Liverpool airport, and the first list of results ignored the "2 room" bit. I then had to set it again on the next screen. I then found that it didn't take my reservation online after all, and I had to phone them up to book it. A bit of a hassle, but two rooms would have been over £100.

The way the Priotiy Club site works is that they add a new lot of hotels every month or so. Then gradually they remove those hotels, presumably as their allocation of cheap rooms get used up. Does your Firefox add-on alert you to the removal of hotels (which is not really interesting and is quite frequent) or just to when new ones are added?

It is a dumb script rather than one that understands the content of the WWW page. You can adjust the threshold for the number of characters that change before you get a warning. I have set to ignore changes to numbers and only to give a warning if more than 100 characters change. I don't get too many false alarms. You could increase the threshold if you only want to be warned when lots of things change.

Thanks. I actually have my own computer programme which checks for when the expiry month changes. I was thinking it might be better to have something integrated within Firefox but I think I'll stick with what I have to avoid false alarms.

We had a great time. The hotel is the original art deco airport terminal. It has been updated so that it has all the stuff that you would expect from a business hotel, but it has a lot more character than some.

Around the back of the hotel, the concrete hard standing has been listed. They can't build on it, and it is bigger than they need for a car park, so there are various interesting aircraft, in different states of (dis)repair. For instance, there is a Gloster Meteor in bits, a Bristol Britannia turboprop airliner, a Percival Prince and a BAe Jetstream 41 jetstream-club.org/ has more information on these.

The food at themoonandpea.co.uk was particularly good.
