Here are the benefits offered for Spire (and Platinum) members:
The main benefits beyond the discount are the breakfast for four and guaranteed 4PM check out.
Business hotels tend to have plenty of availability during the weekends and it makes sense to discount the inventory. The 40% off discount combined with breakfast for Platinum & Spire members is a good one as long as the Best Flexible Rate is reasonable.
