IHG has announced the opening of 2 new hotels in British Columbia, Canada. Located in Comox Valley and Victoria on Vancouver Island, the hotels should please travelers headed to one of North America’s most popular outdoor destinations.

Here’s a look at everything you need to know.

IHG’s Growing Canadian Footprint

These 2 new hotels are the latest additions to IHG’s growing portfolio in Canada. In fact, the chain has more than 40 hotels planned for the country over the next several years. These will fall under 6 of the chain’s brands.

The Holiday Inn Express & Suites Courtenay – Comox is a newly built hotel with 93 rooms, an indoor pool, a fitness center, and access to laundry facilities. Guests can also expect the brand’s signature complimentary breakfast. The hotel’s location in Comox Valley is near popular attractions such as Horne Lake Caves and Mt. Washington.

The Holiday Inn Victoria – Elk Lake is conveniently located near Victoria International Airport (YYJ) as well as the city’s downtown area. The newly-renovated hotel currently features 71 rooms, though there are plans to add more rooms in the future. Guests can look forward to an outdoor swimming pool, fitness center, and The Lakes Restaurant and Bar, a locally popular spot.

Both hotels feature meeting rooms for business meetings or other events.

How To Book

Both The Holiday Inn Express & Suites Courtenay – Comox and The Holiday Inn Victoria – Elk Lane participate in the IHG One Rewards program. This means guests can earn and redeem IHG points for stays.

Remember, though, that IHG One Rewards employs a dynamic award chart which means that points per night vary, often in reflection of the cash rate.

Generally, award nights start at just 32,000 points per night at each property. And, each has a starting cash rate of about $220 per night.

If you need IHG rewards, you’re in luck. IHG offers 3 cards — 2 personal and 1 business — all issued by Chase. You can also transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards or Bilt Rewards points to IHG One Rewards at a 1:1 ratio.

IHG continues to expand its footprint around the globe, with the newest additions being in the Canadian province of British Columbia. These 2 new hotels should be a welcome addition for those with IHG One Rewards to spend.
