It’s like their developers started working on an update to the app, didn’t finalize it, yet chose to roll it out anyway.
Thanks. I'm also using the latest version of the iOS app, but it's just showing Spire everywhere.

Actually those of us seeing Diamond may all also be Amb or Inner Circle- might be due to some programming changes they’ve already made regarding how those show up in the app

But for me, this is a real fail on their part:

There is a chance that a lot of things could happen today but revealing the new program does not appear to be one of them.

This really is sounding like the launch of Spire, all over again… but maybe even worse since they announced qualification criteria for existing tiers for 2022 and then changed it before the first quarter was even over.

Must be more than just drinking something. There is a very high chance that Diamond is a lesser version of Spire with more status points needed to qualify.

lol then whats the point of IHG spending millions on a loyalty program if it's going to flop on arrival and not give the consumer what they want.

Well they managed to convince a bunch of people to do unnecessary stays to achieve status early so there is not much incentive to provide anything new now. They may as well just slap on the new name and be done with it for this year😃

Ultimately, the only question I have is whether Diamond includes breakfast at every property where you'd otherwise have to pay for it.

Otherwise the only winner in all of this is the agency that got to redesign the website and update all of the supporting materials.
