Back in late July, we run a piece about IHG’s loyalty dilemma. In my opinion, the IHG Rewards Club is not a loyalty program at all but rather a rewards one – essentially rebates.

Spire Elite is the highest level within IHG Rewards Club, not taking Kimpton’s Inner Circle or InterContinental’s Royal Ambassador into account, and comes with abysmal on-property benefits as illustrated with the “benefits” card given at a Crowne Plaza hotel.
