Which hotels are available through Hotels Anywhere?
You can use Hotels Anywhere to purchase hotel rooms at tens of thousands of hotels worldwide, including our direct competitors’. Typically you will be able to find similar hotel options on Hotels Anywhere that you would find on a major travel booking website. However, a hotel must be available on the Hotels Anywhere website in order for you to redeem points for a room.
Are there blackout dates?
No, there are no blackout dates with Hotels Anywhere. However, the room rates on Hotels Anywhere are variable, and more points will likely be required for a room during high-demand or peak season periods.
Who can redeem points (or a combination of points and cash) for a hotel room with Hotels Anywhere?
Currently, the Hotels Anywhere website is available in English to IHG® Rewards Club members globally. We will be expanding the program to include additional languages soon.
Where can I redeem points (or a combination of points and cash) for a hotel room?
Currently, you can only purchase your hotel room(s) through our Hotels Anywhere website (ihgrewardsclub.com/hotelsanywhere). The IHG® Rewards Club Customer Care Centers are unable to redeem your points for Hotels Anywhere rooms at this time.
How is the point cost of a hotel room determined?
The point cost for a room on Hotels Anywhere is variable, and is based on the total U.S. dollar amount that the hotel is currently charging for that given room. The rates displayed on the Hotels Anywhere website include all applicable taxes.
Can I earn points or miles on hotel rooms purchased with points?
Most hotel rooms booked through the Hotels Anywhere site will not be eligible for points or other credits in the applicable loyalty or rewards programs; the rewarding of any points or credits is at the discretion of the hotel property and/or the reward program.
How is this program different than the Hotel Reward Nights that IHG® Rewards Club offers?
The Hotel Reward Nights option enables you to redeem your points directly for room nights at any InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) location worldwide. The number of points required for a Reward Night at a given IHG hotel is fixed.
The Hotels Anywhere program gives you the ability to directly redeem your IHG® Rewards Club Points for rooms at tens of thousands of non-IHG hotels worldwide (IHG hotels are not available through Hotels Anywhere). The point cost for rooms on Hotels Anywhere is variable, based on the current market rates.
