A Holiday Inn is now in the very early stages of being built next door. Hard to believe there's demand in Vientiane for two IHG properties next door to each other, especially when the CP can be found for as low as $60/night. I wonder if the CP is going to be re-flagged when the H.I. opens in 2021 (or later).
$40 upcharge for breakfast seems extreme. Too bad about no club access on points for Spire.

I don't know what the reimbursement rate is for points, but it's hard to believe there's anywhere near a $40 spread between the property's reimbursement for my 20,000-point stay and the $60/night rate that's common at this property, which presumably yields the lounge access for Spires reported previously in this thread. (I was planning to pay cash, but the rate spiked on me when I arrived a day earlier than expected.) Beautiful property, though.
