Sheraton Club – The Upside of Everything
Two one- time passes to experience Sheraton Club Level, with access to the exclusive Club Lounges, featuring complimentary daily breakfast and evening hors d'oeuvres between 5 and 7 p.m. during your eligible stay

Pack Light and Stay Fit with Westin
Two vouchers to enjoy complimentary usage of Westin Gear Lending throughout your eligible stay

Four Points by Sheraton
Two vouchers to start your morning with a complimentary breakfast for one (1) person during your eligible stay

Aloft Hotels
Two vouchers to enjoy an Aloft re:fuel (SM) breakfast for one (1) person during your eligible stay

Element Hotels

I would have to venture a guess that a lot Altitude members may already have at a minimum Gold Status with SPG due to their travels or by having The Platinum Card from American Express not to mention the status challenges attached this promotion are the same that any SPG member can take advantage of. Nonetheless it is nice to see this option out there for those who have no status with SPG and the ability for Altitude members to get those little extras on their stays in Canada.
