Nice, you're probably competing w/ no one for those destinations (which is great).

Yup, see you at the end of November. At least it's something to look forward to every 2-3 months. Guess they might go to every 2 months now. Last one was Jul-Sep, this one is Sep-Nov. Next one, Nov-Jan?

Terrific list for European properties IMO.

You may have to watch out for these occasionally. The only non-refundable I've ever run into was CP Suffern NY on a Saturday during wedding season. I spotted the condition just before I hit the button, double-double-checked in disbelief, but then decided to keep it anyway.

Maybe warnings can be posted as you have done -- here and/or in the wiki.

Nada for me this time. Scored big on the last one. It's fun to play the game, if you don't get too wrapped up in it. Places I'd like to go to or go back to. Thanks to all for helping me and others along the way.

Well, it looks like IHG has finally been doing some listening. This is a lot better than the last two offerings.

I got 2 x 5k nights at Rolling Meadows Schaumburg for pre- and post-flight (ORD) stays, allowing me to cancel 2 stays at the nearby Candlewood (one for 15k and one for $105). Overall, a very good deal. Hopefully I can score a balcony room.

I did consider the Candlewood at MIA for 10k for a 5 night stay, but decided against it because it's all non-smoking and I have a smoking room booked at an ok-looking motel with decent reviews for $70 a night.

I might have used Cape Town, if only it had come up in the next round (I have 8 nights there in December).

After the bagging I have given IHG in recent months, I have to say I am actually reasonably impressed this time.

Booked 2 weekend for HI Hamburg Nord - hopefully I can find street parking nearby.

Cash rate on test weekend I looked at for the 15K QO Amsterdam was 280+ euros per night, so possibly very good value if you're thinking a trip there.

The_Bouncer Sep 24, 18 11:08 am

The description at the bottom of the confirmation page states "non-refundable". However, the rate description shows "refunded in points only". At thd bottom it then states that cancellation up to the previous day will incur no charge.

Anything to see and do around the Crowne Plaza Shanghai Xiayang Lake? Worthwhile for 4 night stay?
