To find out which hotel and resort properties are participating in this promotion, you will have to search for them based on location and date. For example, I decided to conduct a random search in Atlanta for Wednesday, September 5, 2018 through Friday, September 7, 2018…
Most of the results will have a dark gray bar on top claiming that rooms are not available on one or more of the selected dates, such as Candlewood Suites Atlanta…
…but as Candlewood Suites McDonough is opening soon, that hotel property does not have the dark gray bar above it — meaning that it is participating in the promotion.
Similarly, Holiday Inn Express & Suites Lawrenceville is not participating in this promotion; but Holiday Inn Express & Suites Atlanta N – Woodstock is classified as a new hotel property and is therefore participating in this promotion, as that hotel property does not have the dark gray bar above it.
A cursory search reveals that the special rates which offer the 10,000 bonus IHG Rewards Club points are no more expensive than the standard rates; but check the rates against other special rates to ensure that you are receiving the best value.
This promotion seems to only be valid within North America; but if you plan on traveling to a destination outside of North America, conducting a search through this promotion will only take a few extra seconds of your time at worst — and perhaps find you a hotel or resort property which is participating in this promotion.
