    I have a 10 hour layover at Manila airport next month and I am considering staying at the IC Manila again. I know about the Hotel, location etc. When I looked at the options what to book I found:

    revenue rate of 225$ = at least 1820 points but not worth it in my opinion.
    35000 IHG points
    30000 IHG points & 40$
    25000 IHG points and 70$

    I am a plain IC Ambassador/IHG Platinum (not very useful compared to HH G, MR G, SPG P or Hyatt D) and hold the IHG Club Master-card.

    I have seen the above choices often when I book IHG Hotels and I am sure you too. Which one of the three do you use, why and what are the benefits associated?

    35,000 is fairly cheap for an IC, even if it is in Manila :eek:

    IHG points cost 00.7 cents each in recent promotions so 35,000 would would be USD 245, slightly more than rate quoted

    any option would have a similar result IMO

    I try to save points for expensive stays in NYC, London, HK ......................

    This is the IC at Makati ? if so, actually, the the Holiday Inn & Suites is very nearby, for 20,000 points and directly above a shopping mall.

    For a 10 hour layover, I might want to save the points for another reservation instead (15,000 points = 3 PB nights !) :D

    I would chose the 35000 points'option...and forget about the cash and would try to get some points using the IHG club mastercard.
