More About avid

The goal of avid hotels is to ensure that each guest room is “just right” for all guests by championing everyday travel at a fair price while simultaneously meeting the needs of the guests who all too often have to pay more for things they do not need or compromise on the quality they expect. Offering the type of hospitality guests value most — with the essentials done exceptionally well and experiences that feel just right, every time — is also part of the goal of avid hotels.

Enjoy the most modern, thoughtfully designed hotel of InterContinental Hotels Group with sound-minimizing rooms; 55″ smart televisions; and a quality breakfast to grab and go.

Guarantee of avid Hotels

The guarantee of avid hotels is available at all avid hotel properties worldwide and only for registered guests. For additional information, contact the individual hotel property.

Upon check-in, guests should rest assured that their room will be clean, offer a sound sleep experience, and have everything in working order; and avid hotels stands behind this goal by providing the following guarantee: Within two hours of checking into the hotel property, if a registered guest reports to the manager on duty or front desk staff that the hotel room of the guest does not meet the Guarantee Standards, as defined below, after confirmation by the hotel staff, the hotel will either address the issue in current room or offer a “no fuss” room change to a room of equal value that meets the Guarantee Standards. If the guest opts for a room change, the hotel staff will accompany the guest to the new room to ensure Guarantee Standards have been met in the new room. If there is not another available room that meets the avid hotels Guarantee Standards, the guest will not be charged for room and tax for that night.

Guarantee Standards is defined as a room which meets the following standards:

  1. Room cleaned using brand-specified cleaning processes and checklist with confirmation card left in room;
  2. Fluffy duvet, choice of firm and soft pillows, and blackout roller shade provided in room

Members will be able to register, stay, and earn for this promotion beginning August 2, 2021 and ending on November 30, 2021 (“Promotion Period”). Upon registration, members will be presented with the opportunity to earn 4X bonus points every night stayed at an avid hotel during the Promotion Period when paying a Qualifying Rate (as such rates are defined in the IHG Rewards terms and conditions). A member earning “4X bonus points every night”, as defined by this campaign, will receive four times the base points earned on every night stayed at an avid hotel on a qualifying rate. You must register, book, and stay on or before November 30, 2021 to earn bonus points during the Promotion Period.

By clicking “click to register” you are registering for the Promotion. Members will be awarded bonus points based upon the number of nights consumed during the Promotion Period at avid hotels. Promotion Period begins on August 2, 2021 and ends on November 30, 2021. Members will only receive bonus points for nights occurring during the Promotion Period.

Summary

In addition to avid, Oklahoma City was also the city in which the first Tru by Hilton hotel property opened, at which I stayed and reviewed with plenty of photographs. The two brands appear to compete with each other; but avid appears to be a little less eclectic and somewhat more functional — although there appears to be fewer options for breakfast.

I do not completely get the purpose of the avid brand. This seems to be yet another brand to chase the “millennial” demographic as the core target market — but I have to wonder: if the goal of avid hotels is to “ensure that each guest room is ‘just right’ for all guests by championing everyday travel at a fair price while simultaneously meeting the needs of the guests who all too often have to pay more for things they do not need or compromise on the quality they expect”, what does that say about the other brands of InterContinental Hotels Group?
