- This promotion is valid for stays between March 8, 2021 and Nov. 29, 2021

- The nightly rate needs to be at least $30 and award nights don’t qualify

Before jumping on the opportunity, see if the IHG Platinum Elite benefits are a good fit for your travel habits. Some of the key benefits of this status include late check-out for all brands, priority check-in, space-available upgrades, guaranteed availability and a welcome amenity as determined by each brand.
Some downsides to the Platinum Elite status are a lack of breakfast benefits and sometimes the upgrades are marginal.
If you prefer to skip the promotion requirements, you can always become an IHG Platinum Elite status by opening the IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card.
