Flexibility. It removes two restrictions that feel idiotic when one encounters them, namely: “oh you still have some space left but you can't give it to that filesystem, it's in the wrong place silly”; “oh you added a disk but you still can't give extra space to that filesystem”. These are punishment for not having supernatural foresight when buying drives and they are enraging. Now Btrfs would also fix these, but stability and performance aren't up to scratch yet.
The other benefit is not nearly as important, but still a good thing. LVM gives the ability to spin up VMs easily without relying on the host filesystem.
