Surprising amount of wishful thinking going on.

The franchised hotels receive a relatively small reimbursement for award nights, and this won't vary much, if at all, whether PB is 5K per night or 15K per night. (IHG pays for award nights based on annual average daily room rate) The major difference will be IHG corporate getting more points = reduction in their points liability in exchange for the marketing / loyalty generating benefit of PB.

Maybe, just maybe, this will tempt IHG corporate into allowing a few more hotels onto PB than before. But you can be quite sure that any IC, CP, Indigos, etc. will actually be hotels with relatively low room rates.
