My two night weekend stay in Manhattan was the ideal opportunity to burn an InterContinental “Free weekend night” voucher.  Every time you renew your InterContinental Ambassador status, you receive a complimentary weekend night voucher.  It’s valid for weekend stays at all IC hotels worldwide and uses the BOGO (Buy One, Get One) principle:  you pay for the first night, the second night is free.  If you’re staying more than once a year at InterContinental hotels, I can highly recommend the Ambassador program.  The initial membership fee is $200 for the first year, $150 for every renewal.  It comes with some great perks:
• Guaranteed room upgrade
• Guaranteed late check-out (4 pm)
• Free movie – One complimentary Pay-TV film per stay
• Fresh fruit and mineral water – in your room upon arrival
• Guaranteed room availability with 24-hour advance reservation
• Complimentary newspaper each morning
• Complimentary use of health club facilities (fitness gym, swimming pool, jacuzzi etc most hotels)
• Welcome gift upon arrival (often something reflecting the local culture at participating Hotels)
• Complimentary weekend night voucher

Using the complimentary weekend night voucher, I paid $347 for two nights (vs $693 regular rate) at InterContinental New York Times Square.  Yes, hotels in Manhattan are expensive!  My Deluxe room booking was upgrade to a Sky View room on the 35th floor offering me amazing views of the city.

One Comment on “Sky View room at IC New York Times Square

  1. Indeed a good tip!

    We became also ambassador and on our stay in de IC from Toronto we got an upgrade to a junior suite on one of the highest floor. A bottle of sparkling wine and a nice chocolate dessert was waiting on our room when we arrived.

    We don’t know how we are going to use the BOGO-voucher, because we have also know a total of 100K of PC-points after our US-roadtrip. 😉
