Worldwide: Mr & Mrs Smith properties are now available to book under IHG as the first phase of the joint loyalty programme is rolled out.
Over 400 handpicked Mr & Mrs Smith hotels are now available to book by IHG Rewards members through IHG’s direct channels. The full selection of properties will be added by early December.
The partnership was first announced earlier this year, however the initiative was temporarily put on hold for a couple of months.
As well as earning and redeeming loyalty points, extras are available for eligible members. For example, Elite IHG Rewards guests will receive bonus points on certain room rates, and Kimpton Inner Circle members will receive a complimentary room upgrade where available and a Mr & Mrs Smith GoldSmith welcome gift.
Chief marketing officer at IHG, Claire Bennett, said: “We’re all dreaming about when we can start to explore the world again and make new memories; whether that’s a trip to immerse ourselves in the exhilarating, or a restorative stay where every whim is taken care of. That dream just got bigger for our IHG Rewards members, with an incredible array of hotels and destinations to add to their bucket list. A loyalty programme isn’t just about the points – it’s about access to extraordinary experiences. This partnership does both.
“Mr & Mrs Smith is exactly the right partner for us,” she continued. “They too are hotel lovers who shaped the industry. Together our portfolio of luxury and lifestyle hotels now stretches from Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spa, Regent Hotels & Resorts, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants and Hotel Indigo through to some of the special independent and small boutique hotels in the world. We look forward to helping IHG Rewards members write their next travel stories.”
The partnership more than doubles the number of hotels that members can choose from under IHG. Mr & Mrs Smith has a collection of over 1600 boutique and luxury properties across 90 countries.
Tamara Lohan, CEO and co-founder of Mr & Mrs Smith, commented: “We conceived Mr & Mrs Smith for discerning travellers who want to discover truly extraordinary places with the people they love. We are hugely excited about the opportunity to bring our growing collection of carefully curated hotels to millions of IHG Rewards members, so they may experience some of the world’s most seductive hotels.”
