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 nightly stay and on food and beverages purchased at the hotel. You can use Gold Points to cover nightly room rates, as well as flights and purchases through Club Carlson retail partners. Plus, signing up for a Club Carlson Visa credit card will allow you to earn rewards on everyday expenses.

How Membership Works»

The Fine Print

  • You must be 18 years or older to enroll in the Club Carlson loyalty program.
  • Gold Points do not cover taxes or other charges.
  • If two Club Carlson members are traveling together, points will be credited to the person whose name is on the reservation.
  • Rewards stays are subject to availability.
  • If a hotel ceases to be a Carlson Rezidor property after you've made your reservation but before you stay there, Club Carlson makes no guarantees that you will receive Gold Points for your stay.
  • The conversion rate of Gold Points to frequent flyer miles varies by airline.
  • Gold Points used for charitable donations are not tax deductible.
