Win a Year-Long Vacation with IHG
IHG Hotels & Resorts is hosting a contest that will give one lucky US-based traveler the chance to win back a year of missed adventures! Literally, the winner will get 365 days worth of epic hotel experiences at various IHG locations; including InterContinental, Kimpton and Holiday Inn Express.
According to a release from IHG, the contest aims to give guests back the time, memories and travel experiences lost in 2020. It is part of IHG’s new Department of Epic – a program which will help guests bring their travel dreams to life.
Contest details below:
“At IHG Hotels & Resorts, our teams connect people through travel and we’ve missed making that happen,” said Claire Bennett, Chief Customer Officer, IHG Hotels & Resorts, in the release. “With the launch of our Department of Epic, we’re helping kick start the memorable and epic experiences people have been waiting for – strengthening family bonds, celebrating milestone moments, uniting far-flung friends, forging business partnerships – across our hotels around the world.”
This once-in-a-lifetime contest comes with exclusive perks, such as:
- Ultimate Snack Setup: The winner will receive a complimentary basket full of their favorite snacks every time they check into a new hotel. Gummy bears in bed? The Department will deliver them right to your room.
- 12 Months of Meals: Over the course of the year, the winner will be able to dine at one of IHG’s award-winning restaurants, once a month.
- Gift of Perfect Sleep: To avoid the dreaded transition of returning to their bed after a year of dreamy slumbers, the winner will be able to swap out their home mattress with a deluxe option that they’ve come to love during their stay.
- Private Car: To get around, IHG will give the winner access to a private car at select hotels to take them wherever they want to go around the city.
- Robe Collection: The winner will enjoy the coziest, over-the-top collection of iconic Kimpton robes that have long been recognized for their memorable designs ranging from leopard to seersucker to tie dye and will serve as the perfect souvenir from the year.
- Immediate IHG Rewards Status: The winner will become a Spire Elite rewards member, the program’s highest level of membership.
- Personal Booking Concierge: All hotel reservations will be made through a personal booking concierge to help the winner select the perfect destination and hotel for each day of the year.
In addition to these exclusive perks and as part of the Department of Epic, IHG will provide tailored experiences through a Surprise & Delight Program. All consumers who are “Epic’d” will be rewarded with “Epic Extras” – from plush hotel slippers to a penthouse booking, the program will help create more memorable moments.
To enter the contest, travelers can head to Instagram and Twitter and ‘tell IHG why they need an epic vacation – without telling IHG they need an epic vacation’, using #IHGTellMeContest and tagging @ihghotels. The contest runs through July 20, and winner will be announced on August 2. Full contest rules here.
Good luck! If you win, make sure to visit some of my favorite IHG properties like the InterContinental New York Barclay in Manhattan, the Kimpton EPIC Hotel in downtown Miami, and the Kimpton Goodland in Santa Barbara.
