Program Review

Honored by more than 1,000 hotel properties around the world, the Carlson Rezidor hotel group's loyalty program, Club Carlson, caters to travelers who often stay at Radisson, Park Plaza or Country Inns & Suites by Carlson properties. The program is best for those who frequently travel to large cities in the United States and Europe. As a Club Carlson member, you will earn rewards — called Gold Points — with every stay and on food and beverages charged to your room. Signing up for a Club Carlson Visa credit card will allow you to earn rewards on everyday expenses. You can use Gold Points to cover future stays and other hotel expenses such as room upgrades and movie rentals, as well as flights and purchases through Club Carlson retail partners.
