List of IHG Rate Codes

About a month ago I sent a PM to ralfkrippner, offering to compile a list of IHG rate codes, with the hope that FTers will find such a list useful.

So here's the first take. The list is arranged by topic.

If you know of additional codes, please PM or post here, and I will update the list. Also, if you think any of the codes should not be posted here for any reason (e.g., proprietary corporate codes etc.), please let me know.

To book any of these rates online, use the links provided with each code, or add the 5-letter code to the end of the this url:
www.ichotelsgroup.com/h/d/6c/1/en/advancedsearch?roomResult=none&rateCode=
If booking by phone, specify the rate code, e.g., "I was given a rate code to use...".

Standard Membership-based Rates (Requires affiliation in the respective organization)

IDAAA AAA/CAA Membership Rate

I don't get the point of this.
This isn't anything that a guest can use.
If a hotel offers any of these programs, you just select it from the list on the reservation page (the long term not the internal code).

Good question! First, it's for the sake of completeness...

Now here's just one example of how you can use the codes. Say you want to find out which hotels in Washington, DC offer the Park, Stay & Go rates (IKPNF) (or any other rate in the above list, for that matter), and to compare the rates for this specific package.

When you use the standard search form, you'll get a list of hotels with rates, but they are not the Park, Stay & Go rates. For each hotel, the standard list will show the lowest and highest rates for ALL packages, so you don't really know if the hotel offers the IKPNG package, and you can't really compare. In this case, the only way to find out is to visit each hotel page individually.

However, if you use the rate code, the search will return only the rates for the specific package. Also, hotels which do not offer the package will be listed as such ("The requested rate is not available").

I hope this clarifies how you can use the codes. You're welcome to use the link below to see how it works.

To get some of these rates, you will have to make a phone call and specify the rate code. "eg, I was given a rate code to use"

Anyone managed to book the IKPC5 “5,000 Bonus Points” rate at any IHG hotel?
