My Top 10 Club Carlson redemptions

Posted on February 10, 2013 by in Club Carlson / Radisson

I bet you all participated in the Club Carlson promotions in 2011/2012. While points do not expire they are forfeited after 2 years of no account activity – so if you rarely use Radisson for regular stays make sure you use your points before they expire.

Here are my personal top 10:

1) Radisson Royal Hotel, Moscow – I do plan to be there later this year, its a grand, stylish hotel with room rates hovering in the $600 per night

2) Radisson Plaza on the River, London – fetches great reviews and is in a top location, I'll be checking the hotel out next month, room rates are $300+

3) Radisson Blu Polar Hotel Spitsbergen – the location is what makes this place special – one of the northernmost hotels in the world (maybe the?). Norway can be really expensive so the 50,000 points help you out here.

4) Radisson Resort Fiji Denarau Island – this is a good hotel, I did grab a coffee there during my stay in Fiji in 2010, not super luxury but I liked the Denarau peninsula and especially the adjacent golf course.

5) Radisson Blue Hotel Dakar – this one looks great – incredible views. I have never been to the Senegal. Room rates are $400+. To be honest I did pull up Google Maps to find Dakar. Anyone with experience in Dakar? Is that rally still going to Dakar every January?

6) Radisson Blu Resort, Trysil – seems the way to redeem for a ski holiday in Norway. Now I'm not a big skier so this does not draw my attention too much but reviews are good!

7) Radisson Aruba Resort – a good hotel in the Caribbean – not a super luxury resort though, room rates are often sub $200 so not such a great redemption 'on paper'.

8) Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront, Cape Town – I wasn't impressed by the hotels old charm and decor. However it overlooks the Atlantic and it's close to the Waterfront with a number of great restaurants.

9) Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel Chicago – best Radisson in the US, it is brand new and it is the chains prototype. This hotel can be cheap though so maybe not really a good redemption.

10) Park Inn Weimar – a Park Inn? Well this one is only 9,000 points and Weimar is a fantastic place to dive into Schiller and Goethe's ideas. They lived and worked there and Weimar also has been at the center of Germany's history many times. It's a small, easy to navigate city. The Park Inn has spacious rooms, very nice spa and it's a steal based on points (it's also cheap paying cash).

Please note that once the Radisson Blu Hotel Maldives Hulhumale opens by November 2013, it will certainly be a top contender.

What are your experiences with Club Carlson? Any hotels that I forgot?
