Not that one for me. I did have IHG Spire Elite last year after a lot of stays for work in 2016 but that was a waste of time IMHO. A very confusing program to utilize the benefits!

Seems to me Chris that all these programs with the exception of Hilton Honours are designed to simply confuse the Punters. I've got HH Diamond. Easy. I've also got Sofitel Acor Silver with Acor Plus but linking the two accounts is virtually impossible. IHG - I give up - 6 membership tiers and ...
