Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group is adding two brands to their current lineup. Radisson Red, which is set to launch in 2015 is being described as, “A new hotel philosophy where imagination designs the experience and experience invents the future. This is not luxury. This is essential. This is the business story of Radisson Red.” Radisson Red could also be summed up as being focused on technology with an artistic edge and is being branded as a new industry category of “Lifestyle Select”. Guests will be able to check in via a mobile app without stopping at the front desk, or order drinks in the bar or food from hotel restaurants, request a taxi, manage their personal preferences and control the environment in their room among other things. You can whet your appetite for Radisson Red at http://www.radissonred.com.
The other new brand, Quorvus Collection, “Is a new generation of expertly curated luxury hotels inspired by the lifestyle and sensibilities of the contemporary global traveler.” Plans include 20 hotels in operation and under development by 2020. These hotels will require a new top Category 7 redemption.
Bottom line: Although these new brands will not change the way Club Carlson members view their memberships in the short term, it certainly adds interest to the future of the way they can spend their points. Gold points do not expire as long as you earn or redeem points within every 24 months. If you would like to quickly add to your balance, there is an offer of 85,000 bonus Gold points when you get the Club Carlson Visa–50,000 bonus points after your first purchase plus 35,000 more points when you spend $2,500 on your card within the first 90 days.
