  • IC reservations availiability on the Internet?

    I seem to recall that IC once withdrew booking availability of its hotels from Expedia (and maybe other web agencies). Is this still the case?

    I often use the Expedia map/drive direction sites to locate hotels enroute and at my destination - both here and in Europe.

    I qualified for membership in the Six Continents Club when Pan-Am established and owned the Intercontinental Hotel chain; and I have maintained membership (now called Ambassador) throughout the many ownership changes since then.

    I found two links that detailed what you described. Then I went to expedia to book a room, and could not find one single IHC property at all. So it must still be true. IHC would rather you go direct to them to book the lowest internet rate, this way they can manage the customer experience, and hopefully you will return to them when your plans call for a hotel in the future.
