A pretty straightforward hotel co-brand card, the IHG Traveler Card offers few perks but also does not have an annual fee. An OK choice for anyone who spends a significant amount of money at IHG properties.
Overall this would be near the lower middle of the pack as far as hotel cards go. The bonus looks substantial (numbers wise), but mid-range IHG properties go for ~35,000 to 45,000 points per night.
