October 1 Update: IHG Rewards Club partners with Mr & Mrs Smith, Earn Double Points for Best Western stays outside of North America & lots more!


IHG Rewards Club announced a new partnership with Mr & Mrs Smith Hotels last week. This partnership will allow members to be able to earn and redeem IHG Rewards Club points at more than 500 handpicked Mr & Mrs Smith hotels when booking through IHG’s direct channels. There are currently 7 hotels in Canada that are part of the Mr & Mrs Smith Collection including the iconic Fogo Island Inn! We hope that this and the other Canadian locations will be part of this partnership! Learn more about the new partnership here.
 Key highlights of  IHG’s loyalty partnership with Mr & Mrs Smith: 
  • From early 2020, IHG Rewards Club members will have the opportunity to earn and redeem points during qualified stays at over 500 luxury and boutique Mr & Mrs Smith properties.   
  • IHG Rewards Club is one of the world’s largest hotel loyalty programmes, with more than 100 million enrolled members. 
  • IHG Rewards Club points can be earned and redeemed at participating Mr & Mrs Smith hotels booked through IHG’s direct channels only. 
  • The partnership gives IHG’s members more choice in where to go, with the addition of Mr & Mrs Smith properties in 14 countries where IHG doesn’t currently have open hotels.  
  • IHG’s most loyal guests, including InterContinental Ambassadors and Kimpton Inner Circle members, will enjoy a free Smith Extra such as a bottle of champagne, picnic hamper or 30-minute massage on arrival at every Mr & Mrs Smith hotel, as well as automatic room upgrades whenever available. 
  • Elite IHG Rewards Club members will receive their tier Bonus Points on eligible room rates (10% Gold Elite, 50% Platinum Elite, 100% Spire Elite).  

Earlier in September we brought you details of Best Western's new stay twice get a free night offer for stays in Canada, the U.S. and Caribbean. There is also an offer to earn double BW Rewards points on all stays outside of those three regions! Be sure to register for the offer right here.


Canadian hotel company Executive Hotels has opened a new location in Vancouver. The new Seaside Hotel in North Vancouver is now open. Here is how Executive Hotels describes their newest locations:
Located in the historic Shipyards at Lower Lonsdale (Lolo), Seaside Hotel is the North Shore’s newest boutique hotel experience! We’re creating a space of uncompromising comfort: luxury on the frontier of adventure.

71 rooms and suites binding the majesty of the North Shore with the sophistication of world-class style to create an unforgettable experience. Our rooms are articulately designed to evoke the natural world: a reclaimed wood focal wall, floor to ceiling windows, heated flooring, soaker tubs, automated blinds, and more; an experience all their own! 
The hotel does not show up on the Executive Hotels Executive Rewards site so we beleive at this time it does not participate in the hotel's frequent guest program. Find out more about the hotel here!
