Hi Everyone,
We're really excited to announce the new changes for the loyalty program today! Now that I think about it, I need to update the username for this account to IHG Rewards Club!

At any rate, I wanted to chime into the conversation as I've noticed several comments/questions regarding certain components of the changes. Here are a couple of questions that I'd like to help answer:

1) Free Wifi: We are in the process of building guidelines & standards that all hotels will adhere to. We're doing this to create as consistent of an experience as possible across all of our hotels around the globe. I'm not sure what the minimum speed/bandwidth will be, but hotels will not arbitrarily be choosing what level of wifi they provide. I also wanted to note that wifi access will be granted to members for the entirety of their time in the hotel (no 1-hour vouchers, etc)!

2) Fast Track Elite Status:
Gold Elite status = stay 15 qualifying nights or earn 20,000 qualifying points OR you can stay a combination of 10 qualifying nights at 3 different IHG brands.

Platinum Elite status = stay 50 qualifying nights or earn 60,000 qualifying points OR you can stay a combination of 40 qualifying nights at 4* different IHG brands.

In July, when we officially launch IHG Rewards Club, we'll update your account management display to have your "brand count" along with the nights and points required to earn Elite status. * Why the asterisk? Because you'll only need 40 qualifying nights and 3 IHG brands if you live in Asia-Pacific or Oceania.

3) Point Breaks: Last, but certainly not least...point breaks isn't going anywhere, any time soon

I hope that helps clear up some of the questions regarding our announcement today!

Carolyn
