InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) alliance with a luxury travel club Mr. and Mrs. Smith has officially started, with IHG Rewards members now able to earn and redeem points on select Mr & Mrs Smith hotel bookings.
IHG announced its intention to partner with Mr. and Mrs. Smith in September 2019.
As part of the initial rollout of the partnership, 400 Mr & Mrs Smith luxury and lifestyle hotels are currently available for booking by IHG Rewards members through IHG direct channels, including IHG.com and the IHG mobile app.
Additional hotels will be added weekly, with the full selection of properties expected to be available on IHG’s booking platforms by early December.
In addition to being able to earn and redeem points, IHG Rewards members staying at a participating Mr & Mrs Smith property will also be able to enjoy exclusive benefits. Elite IHG Rewards members can receive bonus points on eligible room rates, while InterContinental Ambassadors and Royal Ambassadors and Kimpton Inner Circle members will receive a free room upgrade, if available, as well as a welcome convenience.
This decision introduces IHG Rewards benefits in 11 markets in which IHG is not currently present: Barbados; Belize; Saint Kitts and Nevis; Saint Vincent and the Grenadines; Croatia; Iceland; Sweden; Morocco; Mozambique; Sri Lanka; and Burma.
