Here are Platinum & Black benefit matrix:
GHA Discovery members don’t earn points or free nights but rather these “Local Experience Awards” when they stay certain number of nights and visit new participating brands.
The Black benefits do look promising (requires minimum 30 nights) if you can combine them with free nights/points from the brand’s own program.
