most IHG properties will only upgrade Spire, not PLAT.

This has not been my experience.

Did you mean Intercontinental specifically?

IHG launched a new status you can buy for $200 or 40k points (bad value for points):

https://www.ihg.com/intercontinental/hotels/gb/en/ambassador/join?offerId

TL:DR- Free weekend night (on 2nd night of reservation - looks like 1 per year), guaranteed 1 tier upgrade, and extra snack/drink credit.

Anyone have more details on it? Could be a good deal if the weekend night is per stay, as opposed to annually.

IHG Elite Status
Extra benefits only apply at IHG hotels.

Where are you seeing once per year?

Are the old cards grandfathered in?

So it's the ambassador with it? I have Platinum now.  I have a multi night stay in London in the summer. The gaurunteed ugrades are tempting.

Wow did Autocorrect mess this up.
Is the ambassador worth the 200$?
If I'm staying in a intercontinental for 2 nights, 100/night for an upgrade could be worth it.
