You can expect to pay ~$250 per night at InterContinental Tashkent. Of course, the price may change at some point, but it’s very competitive with Hilton Tashkent City to the west.

For points redemption, it starts to become more attractive with ~38,000 points per night at $258 per night rate. It’s effectively a ~.67 cents per point redemption which is better than average of 0.5 cpp for IHG. If you want to book this hotel, definitely consider taking advantage of 100% bonus points sale that IHG usually runs throughout the year.

On the other hand, you can sign up for co-branded credit card like the Chase IHG Rewards Premier Business ($99 annual fee) that gives you an annual 40k free night award as one of its key benefits to book this hotel for free.

 

Conclusion

The InterContinental looks to be a great debut for IHG in Uzbekistan. Shockingly enough, Hyatt has better footprint in Central Asia compared to IHG, so it’s great that IHG is building more presence in a region that I recently traveled to and loved. The property looks very nice compared to the InterContinental in Almaty. Unfair comparison I know, but still.

It appears to be very competitive with Hilton Tashkent City which was an awesome property to be at, and it’d be interesting to compare both. I don’t know when I’d go back to Uzbekistan, but I’d be happy to try this property out for a night or two should I ever visit Tashkent again.
