Holiday Inn Resorts

Conversation opened. 1 read message. Last year Shusmita and I attended a timeshare presentation seminar in Las Vegas just after finishing the Millionaire Chess tournament. We, half-convinced, purchased the Holiday Inn time share at the end of that presentation. Here are the places where they have resorts that I can use with my yearly points to get a good deal. I can use the yearly points otherwise in different ways but I guess those will not be a good deal. Other than the resorts listed below, they are opening a new one in Scottsdale, Arizona from February 2016.
