Stayed at the Ren many times both before and after its comprehensive refurb. At £63 it’s good value, lounge has a a long 4-hour service. That’s where I’d choose at that rate!

Wow, $160FIJ/nt difference over 5 non-cancellable nights was, over the entire stay, a $370USD gamble for 40k points. Bearing in mind IHGs very, very difficult BRG rules and the pedantic team that...

Breakfast isn’t free at Alofts, that’s not the brand standard. The hotel chooses to offer only “bed & breakfast” cash rates and that is their choice, this is not the same as an all-inclusive hotel in...

Virtually all of my IHG stays are in Europe as a Spire, not Ambassador. Suite upgrades are a rarity, less than 5% of all stays but room upgrades are virtually 100% at Intercontinental, Crowne Plaza,...
