The big thing about hotel loyalty perks– is that they’re designed to keep you from going elsewhere. I mean, who would turn down a free breakfast, better room and late check out in favor of a place where none of that is free? Thanks to a crazy competitive hotel loyalty environment, you can take your perks around the block, garnering status with other hotel chains- for free- without losing your current status.

Club Carlson Is Offering Easy Status Matches…

Club Carlson, the group behind Radisson, and the new high end Quorvus collection is again, openly offering a one time status match to anyone with elite status from a competing hotel chain. Wondering if your status is eligible? The match is available to anyone with current elite status from: Marriott, Hilton, Starwood, Intercontinental (IHG), Accor, Melia, Jumeirah, Azimut or Choice Hotels. You’ll retain all your current benefits with your present chain, but pick up a great status and benefits at more hotels. The status could even outlast your present status…

A main reason to match however is that the status could theoretically be used to help you gain another status, if the next match opportunity is taking Club Carlson status- but not your present.

First things first- grab a recent membership statement from your current elite status, and make a scan or digital copy of your current membership card. Send an email to:Β StatusMatch@CarlsonRezidor.com, with your (polite) request to match to their highest matchable status. Reports confirm that the chain responds fairly promptly (within 3 days) to grant the newly minted status. It’s a great hotel chain, and having another status never hurts- for quite a variety of reasons…
