Holiday Inn Elite Status Thru 3rd Party Travel Site

Hello,

I have IHG Platinum status and was wondering if this would be recognized if I booked through Expedia? There is no where to input my IHG # there. Perhaps add the reservation to my IHG account after booking on Expedia? Its a couple hundred less if booked through Expedia versus IHG.com.

It is my first understanding you must book direct for it to be recognized

yes...you must book through the hotel to have your elite status recognized. We were there last year and front desk told us our Elite status would not be honored....we made them check our reservation and once they saw we booked through them, they honored it without issue.

They will not honor it at all. You must book they them so the saved money may not be worth it. Plus you add points to free nights booking direct which could offset the price.

I believe that if you make reservations through I H G , the hotel will honor your platinum elite status

Best choice is always book direct with IHG. Why sacrifice your points and/or status?

And if you compare prices, you’re likely not saving anything.

Go and enjoy!
