The InterContinental Hotels Group is now offering free Internet access to Elite-grade members of its loyalty program, which has recently been rebranded from Priority Club Rewards to IHG Rewards Club.
Platinum Elite and Gold Elite members are both in line for free wi-fi, with the benefit being extended to entry-level Club members sometime in 2014, the chain pledges.
The deal covers all properties under the IHG umbrella, including flagship InterContinental properties throguh to the hip Hotel Indigo brand, along with Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn and Candlewood Suites.
Also new to IHG Rewards Club is a 'fast track' path to Gold Elite status by staying at three different IHG brands across 10 nights within a calendar year (Gold Elite usually requires 15 nights).
Platinum Elite comes within reach after bedding down at three IHG brands across 40 nights for members living in Australia, New Zealand, Asia and the Middle East, or four IHG brands if you reside in the Americas or Europe.
Reward nights also counting toward earning Elite status, while Platinum Elite members’ 'extra' nights (over the 50+ nights requirement) will be rolled over to help maintain their status in their next membership year.
