InterContinental San Francisco to Name Suites After Regular Guests
While many hotels recognize frequent guests via standardized rewards programs, the InterContinental San Francisco is upping the ante with a new program that recognizes milestone stays at the property, starting at the tenth.
For the first milestone stay, the guest receive an upgrade to a junior suite (based on availability) and the guest room will have a picture frame with a favorite photograph already sitting on the desk
Other milestones that the hotel will recognize include the 25th stay (guests receive the upgrade, an InterContinental logo pen, and a monogrammed bathrobe), the 50th stay (monogrammed slippers and a digital picture frame preloaded with photos sent by the guest, plus an upgrade to one of the hotel’s best suites, such as the Presidential Suite), the 75th stay (a personalized iPod is added), and the 100th stay (bed linens embroidered with the guest’s initials, for use in subsequent visits as well as the other gifts and upgrades listed for earlier milestones).
For the guest who reaches his 250th stay, in addition to all of the previously-delineated gifts and upgrades, one of the InterContinental’s suites will be named after the guest in perpetuity. A plaque will be placed at the entrance to the suite commemorating this milestone.
Correction: April 24, 2012
The original version of this article listed slightly different amenities and an additional milestone tier. The hotel has since issued an update to its original news release with the changes.
