Back on April 14, 2015, I noted that one of the changes that was coming up was a change on the award categories for some properties. IHG Rewards made a note of this in their announcement on the new tier that was being added to the program.
At that point, they provided no further information on the changes, it was just an announcement thatÂ Â 300 would be increasing by 5-10,000 points, while 150 hotels will be decreasing by 5,000 points.
IHG Rewards have now provided a chart on the changes. and the changes that exist for Australia are all increases. The following excerpt, shows the affect in Asutralia:
This represents an increase of 10,000 points for Crowne Plaza Coogee Beach,Â Holiday Inn Sydney Airport, and Intercontinental Melbourne. The Crowne Plaza Melbourne is having a smaller (but still significant) increase of 5,000 points.
The full list is posted in this pdf.
