ALH, where did you stay? Looking at doing Vietnam soon
Dang. I accidentally hit save before I'd finished uploading the photos.
Anyway, the managers at both hotels told me I should also have tried Da Nang Intercontinental. Have a look at it on-line. Michael Roux is the chef there. I stayed elsewhere in Da Nang which was really good, but I'll be going back! I made up my own itinerary and tried a big variety of apartments, resorts and hotels and really nailed it. If you need any advice, say the word. Independent travel in Vietnam is fun and pretty easy
Continue to wait patiently in other words.I got a tout call today and she mentioned "we're just waiting for Thailand (and somewhere else) to join the program....". Make of that as you will.
I got a tout call today.
In the New Tier FAQs about expiry it mentions that Ambassador members will automatically be either Gold or Platinum. It doesn't say that buying Ambassador if already Plat would get you New Tier. I'm guessing that it wouldn't and suspect Dining rewards would be the same
The new tier hasn't started yet - it starts in July. As far as I know, the only thing said for sure so far is that Royal Ambassador members will be at the new level. How Ambassador and IHG Dining members will fit into it all remains to be seen. The thing that started now was the clock on point expiration, and on May 1, the changes to award levels.I'm not really referring to ambassador gifted status or the "leg" up by buying both. I'm meaning existing platinum elites (either amb or not) getting a status upgrade with the purchase of the DR option (as per the DR program spiel) to the new tier which according to their own web pages has already started, despite the fact the T&Cs don't yet appear to be altered to reflect the program changes.
Sorry I don't think the bar is included, last time there I asked where the dining rewards could be used. I'm sure there must be a list of restaurants and bars included in the dining rewards program. Good luck. EnjoyThanks for the reply. So the bar does not accept it? Is there a list somewhere? Thanks again
Hi Muppet so you used it in the bar with no issues? Was this for just drinks or food as well? Going there in a couple of hours. Cheers
