    Am I right that the requirement is 3 nights and not stays? Thanks.

    Also, can you elaborate on the “no extra points until you hit the status”? Does that mean all promotions we register for?

    Hi, if I get this status, are the benefits applicable at holiday inns?

    No benefits at any other brand.

    @admin. Thanks for the confirmation. Was thinking of getting status to benefit from room upgrades.

    I registered, but when I checked, it say something about staying 15 nights, etc. It’s not showing up at free after 3.

    Registered for this in April and it definitely said I needed to stay just three nights not three stays, and following a four night stay at IC in Malta, I have seen in my Other Activity ‘Ambassador Status’! When I log in on the Ambassador website it recognises me as such. Just waiting for my pack now I guess!

    @Mark, thanks for the post. I also thought it was three nights and indeed I made Ambassador. What a great surprise! Thanks insider for the great blog!

    I received my platinum ambassador card today. It took about 6 weeks. I stayed 3 consecutive days. I am so looking forward to the benefits.

    Got the package. PC is by far the best program around. I am hooked 🙂

    Someone already asked it, but I don’t see the answer. What does this mean:
    “no extra points until you hit the status”?

    I’m registered for other promotions – does this mean that I wouldn’t get the points for these until I stay my 3 nights and get ambassador?

    Got my pack after about 5 weeks and stayed at the IC Malta. Got upgraded to Club Intercontinental room, free internet and all stated Ambassador benefits. Definitely more recognition even at other brands such as HI (where ambassador benefits don’t strictly apply).

    If this promotion works for you, then your new status will kick in AFTER your stay.

    Do you have to stay 3 nights at IC hotel or any IHG group hotels (i.e. Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza etc) in order to get ambassador? Thanks
