Will I still get my points?
Yes! If you are an IHG® Rewards Club member, you will still receive all your points for the stay. Elite members will also have their welcome amenity points automatically deposited.
How will I know it’s time to check in?
If you are an IHG® Rewards Club member using the IHG® App, turn on push notifications to be notified. If you do not have the app or are not currently a member, you should receive an email before your stay notifying you that you can now check in online.
How will I pay for my room?
We will charge the card we have on file for your booking or the one associated with your IHG® Rewards Club account. If you do not have a card on file with us, you’ll have to check in at the front desk when you arrive.
What if I don’t have the app?
No problem! If you do not have the app, you should still receive confirmation emails with your reservation details. We will send you an email when you can start your check-in process and when your room is ready. This will work even if you are not an IHG® Rewards Club member.
By using the digital check-in process you are also agreeing that the hotel may place an authorization hold on the credit or debit card you provided when you booked your reservation to cover any incidental expenses incurred during your stay in addition to the total room charges and taxes associated to your reservation. This authorization hold on your credit or debit card will be released at the discretion of your card provider or financial institution if not used during your stay.
If the card associated to your stay is linked to a bank or checking account, the authorization hold placed on your account will be equal to the total price of your room, including taxes, and estimated incidentals. These funds may not release for at least 72 hours or longer after checkout, subject to the discretion of your financial institution. To update the card associated to your stay, please contact the hotel directly before completing the digital check-in process.
You will receive confirmation of your digital check-in once the hotel has processed it and assigned you to a room. Upon arrival at the hotel, please stop by the front desk to collect your room key. If you are an IHG Rewards member with Elite status, your welcome amenity will be IHG Rewards points that will be automatically deposited to your account. If the hotel is unable to authorize the card provided prior to your arrival, your digital check-in request may not be completed in advance, and you will be asked to present a card for authorization upon arriving at the hotel.
By using the digital checkout process you are agreeing that the hotel may charge the credit card associated to your reservation for charges, including any incidental expenses, incurred for your stay. After you check out it is possible that additional charges that you have incurred will be added to your final bill.
