As you might expect, IHG’s most aspirational properties like the InterContinental Paris  are at the highest end of the spectrum at 70,000 points per night. Given that room rates here can start at upwards of US$950 a night before tax, buying points and redeeming a room represents a big saving on revenue rates.

Don’t forget that IHG runs PointBreaks promotions where the cheapest properties start at 5,000 points. That’s just US$25 a night, assuming you can find something that suits your itinerary.
