IHG and Mr & Mrs Smith announce new loyalty partnership  

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) and travel club and boutique hotel specialists Mr & Mrs Smith have announced a new exclusive loyalty partnership.

From early next year, IHG Rewards Club members will be able to earn and redeem points at over 500 handpicked Mr & Mrs Smith hotels in new and iconic locations, when booking through IHG’s direct channels.

This exclusive partnership will more than double the number of luxury and boutique hotels which members can choose from.

IHG Rewards Club members will be able to earn and redeem points across hundreds of luxury and boutique hotels around the world, including some of Smith’s most seductive stays, such as Jasper Conran’s riad hideaway L’Hôtel Marrakech, 18th-century organic Tuscan estate Borgo Pignano, Himalayas retreat The Kumaon and the Old Rectory on South Africa’s famed Garden Route. IHG’s most loyal members can expect free room upgrades whenever available and a free gift, called a Smith Extra, on arrival at each Mr & Mrs Smith hotel.

“IHG’s exclusive partnership with Mr & Mrs Smith illustrates the truly transformative travel we bring to our IHG Rewards Club members,” said Claire Bennett, chief marketing officer, IHG.

“This loyalty partnership will allow our most loyal guests to discover even more of the world with the most incredible and inspiring luxury rewards.

“By bringing this spectacular collection of award-winning hotels to our direct booking channels, this partnership means members can earn and redeem points in some of the world’s most sought-after destinations – the perfect complement to IHG’s growing luxury and boutique hotel portfolio, which includes InterContinental Hotels & Resorts and Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas.”

Founded in 2003, Mr & Mrs Smith offers a curated collection of over 1200 boutique and luxury properties in over 80 countries.
