Details of Priority Club's upcoming promotion have been available for several weeks, but I've put off reviewing the offer because it doesn't take effect until May 16.
Now, though, with the offer's start date just two weeks away, it's time to add it to the list of hotel bonuses available for travel during the spring and early summer period.
Between May 16 and August 15, Priority Club Rewards members can earn double points or miles for the second and subsequent stays at InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo, Holiday Inn, Express by Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, and Holiday Inn Club Vacations hotels, and for every stay at Staybridge Suites and Candlewood Suites hotels.
Registration is required.
Deal or No Deal
Unless you're a Priority Club loyalist, double miles or points is probably a less-than-compelling bonus, especially given the alternatives on offer from other hotel networks:
- Best Western - 500 bonus miles for the first stay, 750 miles for the second stay, 1,000 miles for the third and subsequent stays, between April 17 and June 5
- Hilton - 1,000 bonus miles per night, between April 1 and June 30
- Hyatt - 10,000 bonus points after five nights and 5,000 points for every two nights thereafter, between April 1 and June 30
- Starwood - One free resort night after three stays, between May 1 and July 31
Because the value of the above offers depends on your stay frequency and duration, and on your rewards priorities, it's impossible to categorically deem any one promotion the best, or the worst. What you have, though, are options—and that's always better than the alternative.
