This change is long overdue...it is ridiculous that you could stay at an expensive IC for a week and only earn 2000 PC pts!
One of the bugbears of PC is that IC hotels earn 2000 points per stay. In the US this is changing from Feb 15:
Hopefully this change will spread to all parts of the world...-InterContinental Hotels & Resorts outside of the United States, Canada, Mexico, Latin America, and the Caribbean plus all InterContinental Alliance Resorts worldwide, you will receive 2,000 points per Qualifying Stay or the applicable airline miles, which may vary by participating airline;
-Effective 2012 February 15, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Latin America, and the Caribbean plus all Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts, Hotel Indigo, Holiday Inn, and Holiday Inn Express hotel brands worldwide, you will receive ten (10) points for each USD dollar or local currency equivalent paid toward Eligible Charges on your individual hotel room bill, when you pay Qualifying Room Rates, or the applicable airline miles;
Air: QFF Gold (LTS), MH Enrich (Silver), Velocity Gold
Hotel: A|Club: Gold, PC Plat, Hyatt GP: Gold, HH: Gold, SPG: Gold
Car: Avis preferred, Hertz #1 Club Gold
Agreed that it's well overdue. Hope it comes here sooner than later.
It has always bugged me that I have only get 3,000 (2,000 + 1,000 Plat) points per stay even when I have stayed for 6 nights at a time!
Hopefully things will change in Australia too in the near future!
Good change, but hopefully rolled out worldwide.
It's crazy how little you earn at their top tier hotel.
