If you have plans to head to Europe between December 16 – January 26 and are okay with non-refundable hotel reservations, you can potentially score a great deal at a IHG Rewards hotel if you act quickly. They are offering what they call “Christmas” prices at participating hotels, up to a max of 25,000 rooms for great prices listed below. You can book for about another 33 hours as of the writing of this post, so the deal looks like it is live until November 26th at 4PM Eastern if my quick math is correct.
However, the deals appear to be disappearing quite quickly, and in fact some are likely already gone. However, a very quick search on my part just turned up a Crowne Plaza in Zurich (an insanely expensive city) for 55.00 CHF which is about $63 USD. That is a tremendous price for that hotel, so have fun searching!
Christmas offer prices at all participating hotels:
- Holiday Inn Express® £25 per room or €25 in Europe
- Holiday Inn® £35 per room or €35 in Europe
- Crowne Plaza® £45 per room or €45 in Europe
- Hotel Indigo® £65 per room or €65 in Europe
- InterContinental® Hotels and Resorts £125 per room or €125 in Europe
Book online or call 0871 221 3953, enroll and book by quoting “CHRISTMAS”
The terms indicate these hotels do not earn points, so book because you want the good deal, but because you want the points.
The 25,000 room Christmas sale room-rate promotion (“Offer”) is available at participating (please see full participation list) Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo and InterContinental Hotels and Resorts hotels in Europe for standard room-only bookings for stays between 16 December 2013 to 26 January 2014.

Thanks to Head for Points for sharing the details of this sale. His post also has some good tips on hunting down availability if you can’t find what you are after on your own.
