IHG One Rewards Diamond status benefits

With the requirements to earn status out of the way, what are the benefits of IHG One Rewards Diamond status? Below are the benefits and perks, roughly in the order in which I value them (I’m putting Milestone Rewards at the end, because the value is so dependent on how much you stay and how you earn your status).

 

Complimentary breakfast

IHG Diamond members are entitled to a welcome amenity at check-in. What’s exciting is that you can select complimentary full breakfast as an option, which is going to provide the most value.

 

This is valid for the member and one registered guest for each night of the stay, and includes one main menu item with unlimited non-alcoholic beverages, or a full buffet with unlimited non-alcoholic beverages. The value of this can add up quickly, and it’s fantastic to see IHG finally consistently offering elite members breakfast.

 

100% IHG bonus points

IHG Diamond status offers a 100% points bonus on all eligible stays. Since you ordinarily earn 10x IHG points per dollar spent at most IHG brands, you’d earn an extra 10x points per dollar spent, which will make your points add up quickly. This is in addition to any points earned through IHG promotions.

 

Room upgrades (subject to availability)

IHG Diamond members are entitled to room upgrades, subject to availability at check-in:

Upgrades are offered up to standard suites, though this is at the hotel’s discretion; that’s to say that a hotel doesn’t have to make a suite available for an upgrade, even if it’s empty

In the past many IHG properties weren’t great about proactive upgrades, though since the relaunch of the program, properties have been retrained with offering proactive upgrades, including some hotels even upgrading up to 48 hours before arrival

On paper the upgrade benefit is the same for Platinum and Diamond members, though in practice Diamond members should receive preferential upgrades, and are more likely to get suite upgrades. If you do have Diamond status and aren’t proactively offered an upgrade, I’d definitely recommend asking about it at check-in.

 

Reward night discounts

With the relaunch of the program, it’s being promised that IHG Diamond members will get access to award night discount promotions several times per year. There’s no specific timeline with which this happens, but we’re told to expect it multiple times per year.

 

Early check-in & late check-out (subject to availability)

IHG Diamond members receive early check-in (no exact cutoff specified) and late check-out (as late as 2PM). The catch is that this is subject to availability, so it isn’t guaranteed as it is with some other hotel groups. Don’t count on this being granted, though it’s something you can definitely ask for.

 

Dedicated customer support

IHG Diamond members get access to special customer service support, which other elite tiers don’t receive. 

 

Guaranteed room availability

IHG Diamond members get guaranteed room night availability when booking at least 72 hours in advance. This could come in handy if you’re trying to book at a sold out hotel, but expect that you’ll pay a very high rate for this privilege.

 

How can you earn IHG Rewards Club Diamond Elite Status?

IHG One Rewards Diamond status can be earned either based on the number of nights you stay or the number of qualifying points you earn, as follows:

Stay 70 qualifying nights in a calendar year; even award nights count toward that total

Earn 120,000 qualifying points in a calendar year; you ordinarily earn 10x base points per dollar spent, so you’d earn that after spending $12,000 at most IHG brands

These are pretty steep requirements, as this requires more nights than you’d need to earn Hilton Honors Diamond, Marriott Bonvoy Platinum, or World of Hyatt Globalist.
