I recently shared that the IHG Ambassador BOGO free weekend night certificate now works with Kimpton Hotels and Resorts. When redeeming this benefit at InterContinental hotels, your stay must be on the weekend. However, with Kimpton, your free night can be any night of the week.
Read my previous article to learn about IHG Ambassador status, including how to get it, what it comes with, and how to redeem at Kimpton.
Kimpton Ambassador BOGO free night mid-week example
Now that we know that the Kimpton Ambassador BOGO free night works on the weekend, I tried alternative dates. Sure enough, you can book the IHG Ambassador complimentary weekend night for any day of the week at Kimpton.
Just to make sure that there wasn’t a glitch in the system, I spoke with contacts at IHG and they confirmed that this benefit is available at Kimpton hotels any night of the week.
Booking Ambassador BOGO at Kimpton vs. InterContinental for a mid-week stay
I searched for another city that has both a Kimpton and an InterContinental hotel. New Orleans is one of the cities that has both options.
When searching for mid-week dates, you can book the Kimpton Fontenot, but not the InterContinental Hotels New Orleans.
However, when you click on “View available dates,” you’ll see that you can only use the Ambassador BOGO free weekend night at the InterContinental Hotels New Orleans during the weekend.
The Bald Thoughts
The addition of Kimpton as a redemption option for the IHG Ambassador complimentary weekend night was a great surprise. Now that I know that the Kimpton Ambassador BOGO free night is available any night of the week, this benefit became so much more valuable. I’m so excited about using my Ambassador complimentary night during a future Kimpton stay.
