How I Booked The Intercontinental Dubai Marina

The hotel accommodations for my upcoming trip to Dubai and Abu Dhabi are locked and loaded. Last week I booked three nights at the Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi and this week I booked three nights at the Intercontinental Dubai Marina.

For this booking I used two free night certificates from Elizabeth and I's IHG Rewards Club Select Credit Cards. Then I used 45,000 IHG points to book the third and final night. My grand total came out to be $0.00. Since this hotel is currently going for $267 a night, that's a savings of over $800!

I've written in the past about the value of the IHG Rewards Club Select Credit Card, but I've got to mention it again. For $49 a year you get a free night stay at ANY IHG property in the entire world. The sign up bonus is currently 60,000 IHG points, but I've seen it get as high as 80,000 in the past. Last year I used some of my IHG sign up bonus to book two nights at the Holiday Inn Darling Harbour when I visted Sydney, Australia.

I love when I can book a nice hotel and save over $800 in the process. The Intercontinental Dubai Marina looks AWESOME online so I'm excited to see it in person. Make sure to check back for a full review of the property soon!
