Kim, Lucas and I recently spent a night at IHG’s new EVEN Hotels location in NYC at Times Square South. We booked the hotel using an IHG credit card anniversary free night. (IHG credit cardholders get one free night at any hotel around the world each year.)
After staying at the EVEN Hotels in Norwalk, CT, I was happy to see that the EVEN brand was expanding by adding 3 NYC locations.
Since we really enjoyed our stay in Norwalk, we figured it would be fun to see how the first NYC location compared.
Upon check-in, we were greeted by a couple of EVEN’s friendly staff.
After giving my name for check-in, I was thanks for being a Platinum IHG member.
We were then offered one of their flavored waters (Lucas had fun playing with the dispensers) and given our room #, keys and told about the included wifi.
Just before walking off to go check out the room, I was offered a choice for a welcome amenity.
I was asked if I’d like a free drink coupon for the lower-level bar or 600 IHG points.
I didn’t think we’d be doing much drinking at the hotel so I gladly accepted the points! While not a lot, I’ll still take what I can get.
What would you chose- a free drink or IHG points?
