Queens, New York Holiday Inn – Suites Available for Award Redemption

The brand new Long Island City (Queens) Holiday Inn “Manhattan View” appears to be making all of its room types available when booking an award.

The “Kind Bed Manhattan View Suite” normally runs $650 a night but is available for 15,000 Priority Club points.

I imagine this is a mistake in how they’d loaded the room types associated with award rate plans, this won’t last, but if I had to guess I’d say it will be honored. At least similar award bookings at other properties have generally been honored in the past.

  1. Awesome, thanks Gary! Surprisingly enough, the hotel looks fantastic. I just booked this for the one night layover I had in NY in March on my way back to Asia.

  2. Why the heck would anybody pay $650 for a Holiday Inn in Long Island City? Isn’t that the part that’s the mistake?

    Them Kind Beds must be really, really kind on the back.
