Tell Me More about the Upgrade Policy…
“Subject to availability” — What this really means that this is completely hit and miss, 50% of the time the hotel will be “full” – even if it’s not and 50% of the time you’ll get something.
Where can I get an upgrade?
Most Holiday Inn Express hotels in Europe only have one level of room – so no upgrade is possible
Holiday Inn Express hotels in America do have different types of rooms so an upgrade is possible.
Holiday Inns / Crowne Plaza Hotels often offer an upgrade from a standard room to an executive room. Anything more (i.e. Club to a Suite) or access in to the Club lounge is a major bonus.
Do I get Lounge Access?
Only if you’re lucky – unlike the top tier of other programs there is no requirement for the hotel to give anyone lounge access unless it is included in their room rate.
What if I’m Gold status?
You’ll be very lucky to receive any kind of upgrade!
What Qualifies as an upgrade?
- with a view
- away from the elevators
- with executive facilities (bath robe for example)
- with more space
- on a higher floor
- lounge access
