Senior Rates at 27 InterContinental Hotels in Europe

November 29th, 2012 2 comments

What: “If you are aged 62 and over, and stay between now and 31st December, 2012 you will receive reduced room rates at 27 participating InterContinental Hotels & Resorts across Europe. You can also take advantage of our renowned Concierge Service to ensure your stay is truly unforgettable.”

Analysis:

The only benefit I could find is that this rate allows you to cancel up to 24 hours before - which the advanced rate does not allow. Otherwise this rate is a waste of money!

London Park Lane 14-th to 16th December

  • Senior Discount: £270
  • Advanced Saver Rate: £225
  • Best :Flexible Rate £299 per night

 

Rome 14-th to 16th December (all plus tax)

  • Advanced Saver Rate: €222 per night
  • Best Flexible Rate: €295 per night
