You Can Win a Free Year of Hotel Stays Around the World With This Hotel Brand

by Jori Ayers Jun 22, 2021

IHG Hotels and Resorts launched the contest of a lifetime today. The contest will give one lucky winner the chance to win a year of free hotel stays at IHG hotels around the world, including InterContinental, Kimpton, and Holiday Inn Express.

The contest is part of IHG’s new “Department of Epic,” a program designed to give guests the time, memories, and travel experiences lost in 2020.

IHG is accepting applications from now to July 20. To participate, guests must head over to IHG’s Twitter and Instagram and tell IHG “why you need a vacation without telling IHG why you need an epic vacation,” along with using #IHGTellMeContest and tagging @ihghotels.

“At IHG Hotels & Resorts, our teams connect people through travel, and we’ve missed making that happen,” said Claire Bennett, chief customer officer of IHG Hotels and Resorts, in a press release. “With the launch of our Department of Epic, we’re helping kick start the memorable and epic experiences people have been waiting for — strengthening family bonds, celebrating milestone moments, uniting far-flung friends, forging business partnerships — across our hotels around the world.”

The winner of the contest will have exclusive perks and opportunities, including a basket full of their favorite snack every time they check into a new IHG hotel; a free dinner once a month at one of IHG’s restaurants for a year; access to a private car at select hotels to explore the city; and many more.

Entries will be taken from Instagram and Twitter, and the winner will be announced on August 2. Guest entries must include the hashtag as well as the tag to be considered. Guests can read more about the terms and conditions here.
