IHG, Mr & Mrs Smith partner for loyalty program

IHG Hotels & Resorts has partnered with Mr & Mrs Smith, a travel club specializing in luxury boutique hotels, to give IHG Rewards members a broader selection of accommodations.

The first selection of more than 400 Mr & Mrs Smith hotels are available to book by IHG Rewards members through IHG’s direct channels (including IHG.com and IHG mobile app). New hotels will be added each week, with the full selection of properties available to book by late November.

This exclusive partnership more than doubles the number of luxury and lifestyle hotels available for members and is meant to complement IHG’s portfolio of hotels and resorts under the Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas, Regent Hotels & Resorts, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants and Hotel Indigo brands.

The first properties to join the portfolio include Thyme in the Cotswolds in England; Caldera House in Jackson Hole, Wyo.; Casa Morada in Islamorada near Key West, Fla.; Oltrarno Splendid in Florence, Italy; and The Retreat at Blue Lagoon in Iceland. Notably, the additions include hotels in 11 new destinations where IHG is not currently present: Barbados, Belize, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Croatia, Iceland, Sweden, Morocco, Mozambique, Sri Lanka and Myanmar.    
Founded in 2003, Mr & Mrs Smith has collection of more than 1,600 boutique and luxury properties in more than 90 countries.
