洲际皇家大使条款更新:至少升两级,保证行政待遇

洲际酒店旗下的大使项目最近进行了比较大的变动,皇家大使的升级资格改为以消费金额为标准,官方不再提供明确的门槛,招致许多非议。不过这些改变倒不完全是负面的,现在皇家大使的待遇有了更好的保证。ihg-ambassador

更新后的条款请看这里,先复制粘贴一下英文原文:

For guest stays at InterContinental® hotels and resorts in mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, US, Canada, Mexico, Latin America and the Caribbean or Europe An upgrade to an Executive room, Club InterContinental room, or a Suite for Royal Ambassador members at check-in is guaranteed. Where a Club InterContinental room is given, Club lounge access must also be given. Club lounge access otherwise is not a benefit. In circumstances where an executive room, Club InterContinental room or a suite is not available at 8:00 am, the Royal Ambassador will be checked into an available room until the executive room, Club InterContinental room or the Suite is available later on the day of arrival.

For guest stays at InterContinental® hotels and resorts in Asia Pacific (excluding China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan), Middle East and Africa, a room upgrade to a category two tiers higher than the original booking shall be available to all Royal Ambassador members. All Royal Ambassador members will be entitled to the Club InterContinental Experience on top of the two tier room upgrade. In circumstances where the two tier room upgrade is not available at 8:00 am, the Royal Ambassador will be checked into an available room until their upgraded room becomes available later on the day of arrival.

原本皇家大使的升级规则为:保证升级至行政房或者套房,如果是前者,则酒店必须给予行政待遇。现在亚太地区(大中华除外)的规则更改为:房型至少升两级,且无论升级到何种房型,都必须给予行政待遇。

房型升两级倒还好,毕竟大使就至少得升一级了,对于皇家大使一般酒店再怎么抠门也不会连两级都不升的。但是现在有些酒店会坚持“套房待遇二选一”的政策,在新规则下即使你选择套房,也一定会有行政待遇的。这个新规则算是对皇家大使权益的一个小小加强,毕竟现在保级更难了,有必要增加一下项目的吸引力。

很遗憾的是,上面白纸黑字写着大中华区除外,不知道是该谴责IHG又一次歧视了中国区的客户,还是感叹国人薅羊毛的能力太强,让IHG不得不防着。
