What is the difference between a stay and a night?
A “night” is considered one night at any of our hotels. A “stay” can consist of any number of consecutive nights at the same hotel, regardless of frequency of check-in/check-out.
When is a night or stay considered qualifying?
A "stay" or "night" is qualifying when paying qualifying room rates. See the IHG One Rewards Membership Terms & Conditions for more details on qualifying stays.
What are qualifying room rates?
Qualifying Rates include most business and leisure rates, such as Advance Saver rates, Best Flexible rates, global sales negotiated rates (including but not limited to Corporate Gold rates), national/regional/local government rates, and specified leisure rates as confirmed by IHG’s reservation systems. In Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Greater China (Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan), Qualifying Rates include all locally negotiated rates. Note: In Greater China, Qualifying Rates also include all corporate negotiated rates settled with hotels via regular payment. In all other parts of the world, locally negotiated rates are classed as Qualifying Rates if the rate is discounted less than 30%.
See the IHG One Rewards Membership Terms & Conditions for more details on qualifying room rates.
Can I earn points and miles at the same time?
Your IHG One Rewards account must reflect either a points or miles earning preference. However, you can switch from one to the other at any time by updating the preferences on your account. Occasionally, there are IHG One Rewards promotions that offer points only, so if you are a miles earner you will earn points on these offers. This information will be clearly displayed in the promotion details.
