Radisson Rewards


#7 in Best Hotel Rewards Programs


Radisson rewards you with points every time you stay or dine at a Radisson hotel. You can use those points to cover the cost of future hotel stays and airline miles, as well as for gift cards or prepaid Visa cards to use at participating partners.

Earn Points

Sign up for the Radisson Rewards program and you'll collect 20 points per dollar spent on lodging and dining (so long as it's charged to your room) at any Radisson-branded hotel. You will earn additional rewards when you pay for your hotel expenses and everyday purchases with a Radisson Rewards Visa credit card; there are two Visa card options to choose from. Additionally, Radisson partners with several car rental agencies, including Alamo and Enterprise, so you can earn points on car hires. Points are also available to purchase through the Radisson Rewards website.

Using Points

You can use your Radisson Rewards points to pay for stays, food and beverage services and other amenities at any participating Radisson hotel. If you are short on points, you can use the Points + Cash program, which allows you to use a combination of points and a traditional payment method to cover room costs. You'll need 9,000 to 105,000 points to redeem a free award night, depending on the room type and hotel category, but exact point requirements vary by hotel. Below are the number of points needed for one free night in any room (ranging from standard rooms to premium rooms) in a selection of popular business and leisure destinations:

The calculated costs shown above are based on booking searches conducted by U.S. News on July 12, 2019. We analyzed room rates for one-night stays arriving Saturday and departing Sunday four weeks from the research date. Only hotels with room availability that sit within a 15-mile radius of each destination are reflected in the above chart.

Radisson Rewards also allows you to cash in accrued points for participating restaurant, travel and retail gift cards. You can use points to cover the cost of a TSA Precheck application as well. Additionally, you can trade in points for frequent flyer miles with more than 30 airlines, including United Airlines, Delta Air Lines and Southwest Airlines.
