What benefits can you get in Kimton property with ambassador status? I heard you dont get ant benefits vs full benefits of ambassador.

So I just called IHG and asked if they could extend my Ambassador complimentary weekend night and it was a resounding no.

Does anyone know as a Platinum Ambassador if I have access to the lounge and any comments on the lounge at the IC in Adelaide which is the only hotel available. If I'm allowed in does that include partner as well?

TIA

Neither Platinum, nor Ambassador, grant you access to the lounge. Doesn't mean they won't, but there is no entitlement. They may offer a discounted club room....

Usually you will only get access if you book a Club room

I have only once been granted lounge access when not booking a club room but it was a one off.IC Montreal stuffed up our reservation big time.First had to find a room-so allowed to wait in lounge.Then when we were called back to front desk found it still wasn't ready so lounge access granted for the stay.They were on a roll with a couple of other snafus which got us brekkie every day in the restaurant then $C100 F&B credit.

Thanks for the responses - so what level do you have to be to get access to the lounge

No level will get you entry. You must book a club room. I am Spire Elite Ambassador and I get nothing

Thanks - not like the Hilton then. The only available hotel in Adelaide before the end of October is the IC and I've stayed there before and don't really want to do it again.

No completely different. Apart from the BOGO the ambassador’s a bit of a waste especially for us in Australia
