Book a room at either S$350 or S$450 nett and receive the same amount in dining credits for your stay
InterContinental Singapore is now running a promotion offering its rooms from S$350 nett, and offering the full value of the room in dining credits that you can use at its restaurants.
The offer is currently running for stays between 8 Mar 2021 and 31 May 2021. The two room types you can book are:
The Deluxe King Room at S$350 nett
or the Junior Suite at S$450 nett
Both rooms will come with either S$350 or S$450 worth of dining credits which you can use during your stay (more on this later). Note that the rooms do not come with breakfast, so you will need to offset it from the dining credits.
For reference, breakfast at Ash & Elm is chargeable at S$40++ per adult making it a total of S$94 nett for two people. If you prefer ala carte options, you can also take your breakfast at The Lobby Lounge, featuring items such as eggs benedict with caviar (S$30++).
Junior Suites at the InterContinental Singapore do not come with Club lounge access, so that will have to be purchased separately upon check-in, subject to availability. Note that you will not be able to use your dining credits to offset this additional fee.
As of today (21 Mar), all Friday and Saturday dates are no longer available, but the rest of the days are pretty fair game.
The fine print
Some of the key terms and conditions you will need to know:
Firstly, the entire sum of the of dining credits must be used during the stay. Any amount over the credit will have to be settled upon check out, but unused credits will be forfeited.
The dining credits covers service charge and taxes, so it’s not S$350 or S$450 before the additional charges.
Note that while the terms & conditions for the offer explicitly said that IHG Rewards Club points will not be earned and InterContinental Ambassador membership benefits do not apply, your mileage may vary so no harm providing it at the point of booking.
The dining credits can be used at the following restaurants at InterContinental Singapore:
- Ash & Elm
- Man Fu Yuan
- The Lobby Lounge
- Palms Pool & Champagne Bar
Unfortunately this means that you won’t be able to use the credits at the famed Chikuyotei also located within the hotel. Also excluded is in-room dining, so please bear that in mind if you intend to take up the offer.
From experience, you will end up spending anything between S$50 to S$100 per head per restaurant, depending on whether there’s alcohol involved.
I went to Ash & Elm for dinner last Christmas, and the total bill for a party of four came up to about $450 nett, including a bottle of wine.
If you are planning to dine at any of the restaurants at InterContinental on a specific day, this is an offer that you might want to look into. I personally refer to look at this offer from the other perspective: getting a free night stay if I’m looking to spend at least S$350 in dining at the hotel.
However, weekend availability is nil at this moment, but there are some public holidays coming up, so this promotion might be good for those days if you snap them up quickly.
