Members of InterContinental Hotels Group’s Rewards Club can now officially book reward nights at Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants properties. 

In October 2017, IHG revealed plans to incorporate Kimpton Karma Rewards into the IHG Rewards Club, an addition that is three years in the making. IHG initially acquired Kimpton Karma Rewards in early 2015, but until now this program and IHG’s own remained entirely distinct offerings. 

Now, the company is allowing for overlap as Kimpton Karma Rewards is migrated into IHG Rewards Club.

Members of Kimpton Karma will eventually find themselves automatically enrolled into IHG Rewards Club, granting the ability to earn and redeem nights at more than 5,200 hotels worldwide.

Meanwhile, IHG Rewards Members will gain the ability to earn and redeem points at more than 60 of Kimpton’s boutique hotels. Existing IHG Rewards Club members will also have their current status recognized within the Kimpton Karma program. 

Bookings and other activity under Kimpton’s rewards program will be converted into IHG points to be used at any of IHG’s hotels. Kimpton Karma members are also able to earn points through stays at IHG hotels, and can redeem points for car rentals, shopping and dining, as well as discounted rates when booking direct.

As of Q4 2017, IHG Rewards Club has more than 100 million members worldwide.
