IHG Rewards Club is piloting a new program called Pay with Points, where users will be able to pay for anything from a drink at the bar to relaxing day at the spa using their IHG Rewards Club points.
IHG is expanding its loyalty offerings for luxury travelers. Next year Intercontinental Hotels will expand IHG Rewards to also cover Mr & Mrs Smith hotels, a collection of boutique properties around the world.
The new brand, IHG’s 17th, will fall between traditional extended stay and select service hotels. Guests are encouraged to stay up to six days, and the hotel will offer complimentary breakfast and dinner option.
