On the heels of the announcement that InterContinental Hotels Acquires Kimpton Hotels, I got to thinking what Kimpton property would I be the most interested in using my IHG points for once the integration or at least cross redemption integration of points programs is complete?

Top 7 Kimpton Hotels To Use IHG Points

So, immediately I started looking at the Kimpton properties I’ve always wanted to visit but instead, this time I would redeem IHG Rewards Points. I have only stayed in a couple and wanted to see what Kimpton’s unique selections looked like. What I found was that they offer 62 boutique hotels in 28 cities. Here is my initial thinking on hotels I would like to visit with my IHG points. This may change depending on how many points are required of course as well as airline reward availability to the locations.

  1. I honestly hope they don’t merge the loyalty programs to allow IHG points to be used. Compared to what Kimpton has now, Kimpton has a true loyalty program. Nothing to do with points and easy to understand. Stay more, get more free nights – anywhere you want. No complicated point structures, award charts or tiers to be worried about. Let’s hope they don’t combine loyalty programs! Sure, it would be great to use IHG points, but if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it. Kimpton’s program as is right now is by far more lucrative than any credit card offer from IHG or points can buy…

  2. The Epic Hotel in Miami is one of my favorite hotels, I definitely cannot wait until I can use IHG points to stay here!

  3. @PJ The picture is the Tideline in Palm Beach formerly the Omphoy .
    @TWF random side note now wouldn’t be a terrible time to match to Kimtons Inner Circle Elite thing especially since IHG stopped doing matches as it would probably carry over.
