Wiki was copied from 2017 thread
Created WIKI Mar2017 purely to add the "new" IHG PB List URL as I can't find by screen navigation since IHG changed the reservation screens etc, and the old url if saved no longer works either.

Just got fed up trying to find , much easier to store in wiki, hope this helps others

Pointbeaks changed the amount of points needed: This is discussed in this thread: https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/inte...5k-10-15k.html

This thread is about the discussion about the locations and the actual list, please use the thread above for discussions about the increased number of points needed for pointbreak redemptions.

Use this URL for "Live" PB Listing:

The PREVIEW list usually appears on IHG's blog first

I'm shocked there is nothing for Nebraska or Iowa, the only time I really need a hotel there while doing a road trip

CP Jo'burg Rosebank at 10k.

HI Paris Montmartre, CP CDG Airport & HIX LAX Airport at 15k.

Otherwise very slim pickings indeed. 5k list may as well not exist.

For those planning a visit to the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, NY, Sayre, PA, for 5K is a pretty good deal.

And it appears that the new list is bookable for stays during the balance of July.

I had Montmartre priced up, but then it disappeared before I could book

Nothing else looks at all useful for my travel plans...

If visiting the Oregon coast the HIE in Seaside is a solid, newly-remodeled option. Unfortunate it's still 15k, but you could do worse.
Germany - HIE Dresden is good for 10k also.

HI Montmarte is really in a nice little neighborhood and tends to fly below the radar a bit because it's a couple blocks from a metro stop. We really enjoyed our stay there a few years ago.

Plenty of decent options in the EU from this list. HI Paris Montmartre & HI Warsaw both look great. HIX Dresden and HIX Frankfurt City - Hauptbahnhof look doable too.

Looks like HI Montmartre has blocked out all reward night going forward. Anyone get nights there? Guess you need to be FAST!
