How to Enter the Sweepstakes

Select guests at Sponsor’s hotel properties will receive invitations via e-mail message to provide reviews of their hotel stays — for residents of Germany: only pre-existing members of the IHG Rewards Club will receive email invitations. During the Promotion Period, an eligible entrant may follow the links and instructions contained in the email invitation to take the guest satisfaction survey to provide feedback on the specific hotel stay identified in the invitation. Survey must be completed within 30 days after the date on which the email invitation was sent; provided, that submissions received after December 31, 2021 will not result in an entry even if the email invitation was sent on or after December 1, 2021. Each entrant must fully complete and submit the survey and the registration form, including the full legal name of the entrant — as included in entrant’s government issued identification documents, valid e-mail address, and any other information requested on the registration form. By entering a Submission, entrant agrees to be bound by these Official Rules and confirms that entrant has read and understands the information contained in the Data Protection Notice contained within the Official Rules and Sponsor’s privacy policy, referenced below. Entrant will receive one entry into the Entry Period during which his or her submission was received by Sponsor.

To enter without receiving an invitation or completing a survey — which is not applicable for residents of Mexico, who may only enter by completing an online guest survey — an eligible entrant may send an e-mail message along with his or her full name and country of residence to IHGSurveySweeps@prizelogic.com which states the following:

“I would like to enter the Promotion without completing a survey. I have read, understand, and agree to the Official Rules of the Promotion, including the Data Protection Notice contained within the Official Rules which sets out how my personal information will be transferred, retained, processed and stored by Sponsor and my rights with respect to such processing, subject to the Sponsor’s Privacy Policy.”

Upon receipt of the above-referenced e-mail message by the sponsor, the entrant will receive one entry into the entry period during which the submission was received by the sponsor.


The total approximate retail value of all of the grand prizes is $6,000.00, with 48 winners in total.

Four winners per entry period will each have 25,000 points credited to his or her IHG Rewards Club membership account. The approximate retail value of this prize is $125.00.

Official Rules

No purchase or payment is required or necessary to enter, play, win or claim a prize; and a purchase or payment will not increase your odds or chances of winning.

You must be a member of the IHG Rewards Club frequent guest loyalty program. If you are not already a member of the IHG Rewards Club frequent guest loyalty program, you can join as a member now at no cost.

This contest is void where prohibited or restricted by law.

The credited points may thereafter be redeemed in any manner consistent with the terms and conditions of the IHG Rewards Club frequent guest loyalty program, which are subject to change at any time without notice. Prizes cannot be transferred; and no substitution will be made except as provided herein at the sole discretion of the sponsor, who reserves the right to substitute a prize for one of equal or greater value if the designated prize should become unavailable for any reason. Limit: One prize per person.

This promotion is basically a continuation of one from last year; but I found out about it too late to feature in an article here at The Gate because it was set to end on Thursday, December 31, 2020.

If you do decide to participate in this sweepstakes, I hope that you are one of the twelve winners of 25,000 IHG Rewards Club points in 2021.
