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

Wow, the 5,000 point list is completely gutted - 2 in the US, 1 in Brazil, 1 in Japan, and the rest in Turkey and business areas of business cities in China. Those who said the tiering of points would decimate it are correct.

They might as well just end the 5k tier

That Rayong one doesn't get good reviews and there are nicer hotels in the surrounding area.
I contacted them a while ago about the perks they would give a Plat member and a Gold member (in 2 separate rooms) on a cash stay and they basically wrote back saying that you can have breakfast if you book a room rate that includes breakfast and you can have executive lounge access if you book a room which includes executive lounge access.... !

I double checked with them that that is what they actually meant and it was !!!! Well, Okay then !

The Pointbreaks list used to encourage me to take trips I otherwise wouldn't have. Now it encourages me to book into a Hilton ;-)

10k for HI Munich City East is a good deal.

The hotel is not exactly in the city center and it's like a 7 min walk to public transport (S-Bahn), but it's a brand-new property which gives decent elite recognition.

You can be from your room at the hotel in the city center in like 20 min.
