Update 1/30/17 1:20pm: This quarter’s PointBreaks hotels are now available to book. Head to this page to select the property you’d like to redeem for.

Today, IHG released the new list of PointBreaks hotels for stays from January 30 to April 30. But, don’t scramble to book hotels quite yet. While the full list has been released, the discount won’t be applied until sometime on Monday, January 30.

If you’re unfamiliar, IHG PointBreaks are reduced-rate award redemptions at IHG hotels (InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo and Holiday Inn) that require just 5,000 Rewards Club points per award night. However, only a limited number of nights can be booked at this rate for each hotel, and the best options are scooped up quickly. Having the full list released in advance like this can help you plan which properties you’ll want to jump on as soon you can book them at a discount.

This version of the list includes 131 properties in 29 different countries. Of those, 81 hotels are here in the US. There are 2 InterContinentals (the InterContinental Maracaibo and the InterContinental Real Santo Domingo), 1 Hotel Indigo (the Hotel Indigo Krakow – Old Town), 9 Crowne Plazas, 33 Holiday Inns, 17 Candlewood Suites, 7 Staybridge Suites and 62 Holiday Inn Express hotels. Let’s look at the top options:

InterContinental Real Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic)

As the one of just two InterContinental hotels on the list, the InterContinental Santo Domingo is sure to be in high demand. This Category 6 hotel typically goes for 35,000 points per award night. So, you’ll be saving 30,000 points per night if you’re able to visit Santo Domingo before the end of April — and you’re able to book your nights before they’re all claimed.

Hotel Indigo Krakow — Old Town (Poland)

If you’re looking to visit Krakow’s wonderful Old Town, here’s a great chance to stay in the heart of it all for a huge discount. At this Category 5 hotel, you’re going to be getting 83% off the normal award price of 30,000 points per night.

Candlewood Suites Anaheim — Resort Area (California)

If you’re looking for a warm US destination, here’s a great option for you. This Candlewood Suites hotel is located within a few blocks of the main gate at Disneyland Resort in California, giving families and Disney fans of all ages great access to the park and an unbelievable rate of just 5,000 points per night. At this Category 4 hotel, rates typically cost five times as much: 25,000 points per night.

Bottom Line

At just 5,000 IHG points per night, PointBreaks are easily one of the top values when it comes to hotel awards. Not surprisingly, there aren’t too many gems given away at this great rate.

Check out the full preview list to see which properties might match up with your travel plans. If so, make sure to book them as soon as you can on Monday morning.
