I think it's free for all but the timing won't suit everyone. I also think it has now been moved to Burr&Co if I recall correctly from my last stay although as the timing has never suited me I have...

Some people will have got their sums wrong or exaggerated total IC spend, perhaps figures weren't accurately tracked by the IT (we have all had that happen), few long term RA's who spent above $10k...

Yes the change happened but it seems not to bite at significantly over $10k, I spent circa $11k tops on IC and Kimpton last year. Thatís why I said the criteria has been fairly consistent not...

That is very true for non RA's. As a marketing exercise you have to wonder though why you would give anything of value to those who would drop the same spend anyway, it makes very little commercial...

The problem for IHG and the better hotels (i.e. IC, Kimpton, Regent) is I think twofold.

Firstly there is little real incentive to stay with them without RA or IC status unless you would be making...

Their club experience offered to RA's on non paid booking (or on request as an alternative to paid bookings) is better however as it is in proper bars and restaurants. I think its fairly marginal...

This may be a Voco thing as I had the same at Cardiff, St Davids with the right contents. The body wash is quite minty and tingles upon application.

I think a free drink voucher is all that you can count on. I talked them into a suite upgrade as a Spire/Kimpton IC but I think that should not be expected for a Plat.

I have had issues in the UK and even flat out refusal at one property which was more down to staff attitude and rapidly corrected with more senior intervention.
