IHG Hotels have brought back the elite member weekend stay (Friday, Saturday & Sunday) offer for stays at the Greater China (Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macao & Taiwan).
IHG Rewards Club elite members can save 30% on breakfast inclusive rates through July 25, 2021.
Note that this rate plan is not available during holiday weekends.
The early check-in is from 10 AM, and late check out is until 4 PM when available.
IHG has had a similar rate plan for Greater China weekend stays for years.
It appears, however, that they have removed the requirement of having the IHG Rewards Club membership address in any of these countries. Now IHG only refers to staying in the area.
There could be challenges for non-Chinese to book these rates because you must use the WeChat application to pull hem up.
