IHG Buying Kimpton & Set Your Sights Promo

IHG HotelsIHG has been making some noise over the past couple of days for a couple with some big news and offers.

First, their newest bonus points earning promo came out and then they announced that they would be acquiring Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants. Definitely some big news so early in the week!

The Offer:

For IHG’s most recent promo, Into the Nights I did very well earning 2 Free Nights + 40,000 points for $142. To earn the bonus we spent just one night at the EVEN Hotels Norwalk.

I received an e-mail yesterday from IHG about their newest promo called Set Your Sights.

While this promo doesn’t seem to be quite as lucrative as Into the Nights, it still can be a pretty decent offer. However, I don’t think that I’ll be participating. This promo seems to have too many stipulations needed to earn the bonus.

Here is my offer:

Let us know what offer you received for Set Your Sights and if you plan to participate. If you didn’t check your offer yet, you can do so here.

The Big News:

Last night some other big news from IHG started popping up. IHG would be acquiring Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants for $430 million.

While I’ve never spent a night at a Kimpton property, maybe this will be another good option to book with the Chase credit card annual Anniversary Free Night or with IHG points in the future. (Find out about the Crazy Expensive IHG Anniversary Free Night We’re Not Booking.)

A little about Kimpton:

  • “Kimpton is the world’s largest independent boutique hotel operator and a sophisticated food and beverage operator.”
  • They have 62 hotels in 28 U.S. cities
  • There are 16 more hotels on the way
  • 71 Destination Restaurants, Bars & Lounges

Kimpton Hotels look pretty impressive and I am hoping that I can stay in one at some point in the not so distant future! If you’ve stayed at a Kimpton, let us know what it was like.
