Radisson Hotel Group (“RHG,” previously Club Carlson) has long been one of my go-to hotel groups for international travel. Over the years, I’ve stayed at RHG hotels in Madrid, London, Brussels, Helsinki, Tel Aviv, Capetown, Prague and Lima, to name just a few, and I’m looking forward to staying at the Radisson Blu 1919 Hotel in Reykjavik, Iceland later this year!
The RHG portfolio includes Radisson Collection (formerly Quorum), Radisson Blu, Radisson, Radisson RED, Park Plaza, Park Inn by Radisson, Country Inn & Suites by Radisson and Prizeotel.
Earlier this year, Radisson Rewards replaced Club Carlson as the hotel chain’s loyalty program. I was fortunate to attend RHGs first Americas Business Conference, meet hotel executives and learn about RHGs’s exciting plans for development worldwide, including the United States (including a new flagship Radisson in New York City and a Radisson Blu in Anaheim, California), Latin America and the Caribbean (see, Radisson’s Exciting Global Expansion Including New NYC Flagship Hotel).
The loyalty program, Radisson Rewards offers exceptional benefits, including the ability to earn and redeem rewards remarkably fast at over 1,100 hotels worldwide, 10% savings when you book direct on the RHG website or mobile app; and earning 20 points per U.S. dollar spend on eligible stays.
I’ve had the Radisson Rewards Visa (previously the Club Carlson Visa) for many years and have found the card extremely beneficial. The current Radisson Rewards Visa Signature Card has many benefits, including:
- upgrade to Radisson Rewards Gold status
- earn up to 3 free nights! Earn one free e-cert for each $10,000 spent (up to $30,000)
- 40,000 renewal bonus points each year when you renew your card by paying the Annual fee
- 10 points per $1 spent in eligible net purchases at the Radisson Family of Hotels (not including prizeotel), 5 points per $1 spent in eligible net purchases everywhere else
SIGN UP FOR THE CARD AND GET UP TO 85,000 BONUS POINTS
If you don’t yet have the Radisson Rewards Visa Signature Card, and you sign up now, you can receive a SIGN UP BONUS OF UP TO 85,000 POINTS: receive 50,000 points after your first purchase plus 35,000 points once you spend $2,500 on your card within the first 90 days!
