    Hotel Promotions IHG "there's more to see" sale

    If you book the 'breakfast and parking' offer .... Beware, that a number of IHG properties have still NOT opened up their buffet meals. I booked a few nights at Parramatta HI, to be advised, that 'breakfast' will be an offering of 'tea and toast' ( Continental breakfast, as it is referred to...

    Ambassador Renewal

    Just had a phone conversation with AMB rep. I was advised, the 10% rebate ( on use of Reward Points ) was ceased from 1st. March this year. Also, I was advised, that my account still had last year's Weekend Voucher as 'available' .... even though I used it a few months ago. The AMB rep. said...

    Ambassador Renewal

    Hotel Promotions IHG "there's more to see" sale

    I took advantage of the offer. I'm writing from the Double Bay IC. Shame the offer wasn't 'stay 3 / pay 2 … plus breakfast & parking' !! Beware of how the booking app shows cost ... Participating hotels are offering the three nights ( pay two ), based on their 'best flexible' rate, and not...

    Sydney Intercontinental State Suite

    As per previous post ... I cancelled Sydney IC, received a full refund, and have booked Royal Suite for late August. Only issue I had, was that QANTAS Money ( travel Card ) withheld some several hundred Reward Points, as the IC refunded back to my card. ( which is the points I got on each...

    IC Double Bay - Royal Suite

    There doesn't seem to be any posts about either the Double Bay IC, or their Royal Suite … ( in the last five years or so ). I've changed a booking from Royal Opera Suite at Sydney IC, to the Royal Suite at Double Bay ... and will have some $700. left over !! ( apparently, when it first opened...

    Sydney Intercontinental State Suite

    Sydney Intercontinental State Suite

    Gets more interesting by the day ..... 2GB reported, that both the Sydney and DB ICs are currently offering FREE rooms for doctors and nurses "needing a well deserved break". No argument there .....

    Sydney Intercontinental State Suite

    Renamed ... 'Presidential Opera Suite'. I think, they should have kept it 'The Australia Suite' ....
