IHG 大使福利将缩水:在 Regent 不再有福利,周末免费一晚无法在 Kimpton & Regent 使用

洲际酒店集团 (IHG) 今年大幅改版了它们的常旅客计划,更名为 IHG One Rewards,同时最高等级的钻石会员福利也得到了大幅加强(更多信息可以参考这篇文章)。本来IHG大使计划是 InterContinental 品牌独享(后来也加入了Kimpton, Regent),为了想要洲际酒店的待遇,很多人选择加入大使计划(入会交$200或者花40k点数),皇家大使是要住够了一定晚数和消费达到一定金额后受邀请才能升级到这个会籍。随着钻卡福利加强(尤其是在洲际、丽晶、金普顿也能选择免费早餐),本身就是对IHG Ambassador的一个冲击,现在IHG大使还要被砍福利,吸引力进一步降低:

  • 从2023年起,大使和皇家大使的周末免费一晚将无法在 Regent 和 Kimpton 使用。
  • 从2023年起,大使和皇家大使在 Regent 不再有福利

Complimentary Weekend Night

23.  The complimentary weekend night may be redeemed up to 12 months from the date on which the certificate is issued, cannot be extended and is redeemable once only in conjunction with a minimum two-night paid stay when booking the Ambassador Complimentary Weekend Night’ rate at InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants and participating Regent Hotels & Resorts. It is not valid to be used on any other rates.

i.  Valid at participating Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants and Regent Hotels & Resorts for stays until December 31, 2022. Not applicable at Regent Hotels & Resorts within Greater China.

大使和皇家大使的福利之一是每年周末免费一晚:需要连续入住2晚,第一晚付现金,第二晚可免费。从23年1月1日起,这个福利就无法在 Regent & Kimpton 旗下酒店使用了。而且是看入住时间,不是预定时间。本身现在还有一个加入 Amabassador 计划的促销,入住2晚可得20k点的活动(加入花$200或者40k点数),本来加入后用住二付一就直接搞定任务(23年1月31日截止),但是现在突然宣布23年1月1日起在 Kimpton/Regent 没法用了,很打击入会的积极性啊。

除了 Free Weekend Night,另一大变化是大使和皇家大使在 Regent 的福利全部被砍,以下是本来在丽晶入住时能享受到的福利,23年起全部都没了。

Regent Hotels & Resorts

39.  InterContinental Ambassador and Royal Ambassador benefits applicable at participating Regent Hotels & Resorts for stays throughout 31 December 2022.The following benefit alternatives or exceptions are applicable when staying at Regent:

a.  A local ‘Signature Amenity’ benefit shall be offered.

b.  Royal Ambassador minibar credit capped at USD50 per day and USD200 per stay may be replaced by an alternative credit of equal value at the discretion of each hotel.

c.  Royal Ambassador two category room upgrade replaced by a one category upgrade. Room upgrade is upon availability at Regent Hotels & Resorts in Greater China.

d.  Early Check-in and Extended Check-Out for Ambassador and Royal Ambassador members are always subject to availability at Regent Hotels & Resorts in Greater China.

e.  Complimentary breakfast: One complimentary full breakfast for each night of the stay for the Ambassador member, valid only in the main restaurant. Not applicable to in-room dining. Valid in Mainland China only.

Note: If a Diamond Ambassador member chooses the Welcome Amenity Free breakfast for two, they will only receive up to two breakfasts, which will be for the member plus one additional guest

f.  All Ambassador and Royal Ambassador members will be entitled to a restaurant and bars discount. Valid in Greater China only.

总体上感觉IHG Ambassador这个计划的定位更加尴尬了,一方面是IHG One Rewards大幅增强了福利(而且很多福利不限品牌),另一方面居然大使还在砍福利;本身我以为为了吸引更多人加入大使,至少福利会增强一些,没想到还减少了…搞不懂IHG在想啥。
