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?
