The "free night" with Ambassador is NOT free - it is a BOGO and has to be booked in a higher class of service (an Ambassador Room) than a regular rack room. I agree that there are some fine IC...

IHG advertises "No Blackout" for rewards nights - they simply get around this by using hotel-imposed capacity controls that don't exist with Marriott or Hilton. I'm not talking about being in town...
