In my opinion, the Intercontinental Hotel Group’s Priority Club program offers the best return out there for your loyalty. For one thing, they make it very easy to redeem points for rewards—with no annoying expiration dates. Then there’s the “Point Breaks” program, where a few times a year they let you book from a list of selected hotels for just 5,000 points. That’s a tremendous bargain as it equates to $50 or less of points value.

Granted, just a few of their hotels (I-C, Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza, Staybridge Suites) would meet this publication’s definition of luxury: most are convention hotels or for business travelers who don’t want any surprises. But sometimes you just need a place to lay your head for the night as you’re passing through a big city. If you’re going to be in Mendoza, Medellin, or Merida, Mexico before the end of January, jump on this opportunity now as these tend to sell out quickly. I can’t imagine that Santiago one will be available very long. The one in Ciudad Juarez, however, is a different story. Take your time booking that one…
