InterContinental Hotels Group employee rate ranges vary depending on the hotel's average daily rate where employees want to stay. All employees who are full time and permanent part time are eligible for the reduced rates after they have worked more than 90 days, reports MightyTravels.com.
Rate ranges are based off the regular price for a stay at the hotel. For example, as of 2015, if the average daily rate of a room is $74 or less, the employee rate is $29. Hotels with an average daily rate of at least $125 have a discounted rate of $59 for IHG employees, notes MightyTravels.com.
To receive the employee rate range discounts, the employee must validate her IHG Rewards Club Member number. Once a number is registered, employees can make hotel reservations by logging into their IHG Rewards Club account. Some employees have a Merlin ID. These employees must log in to Merlin and make employee rate bookings.
Certain restrictions apply to the employee rate ranges. Only an eligible employee may use the program, and the reservation must be made online. The employee must show his ID at the time of check-in. Employees wishing to make reservations for family and friends may use the IHG Friends and Family rate, which allows an IHG employee to save up to 15 percent off both Best Flexible and Advance Purchase rates.
