Hotel rewards are not new to us. We know there is always a loyalty that we earn when we stay in a hotel during holidays but we somehow don’t claim them to save substantial money.
The reason behind this is we don’t stay in the same hotel chain spread across various countries. Every time we plan our travel, the first thing after booking cheap flight tickets is we search for hotels based on:
- Our budget
- Facilities and amenities that the hotel offers
- Location (near to all the famous sightseeing places, or a metro station, or near an airport or railway station)
I admit it is the correct way to plan our accommodation but at the same time, if we look to redeem the hotel rewards that we earned during our previous vacation, we may save quite a sum. In addition, we get to stay in a hotel that provided amenities like last time.
What are all the types of hotel rewards that a hotel chain offers?
The loyalty varies and so too the points we earn. As a matter of fact, the loyalty points increase with every stay in the same hotel group. This is similar to flying miles given to us by flying with the same airline.
The hotel rewards program may include:
- Accommodation price discount
- Free Wi-Fi
- Extra free night
- Free stay for children
- During Stay, Free champagne bottle as a farewell gift
- Free airport or railway station transfer
- Discounts in car rentals
- Discounts in gym and spa facilities
Here is a list of hotels that are known to offer alluring rewards for being loyal customers.
Radisson hotel group requires no introduction to frequent travelers and habitual holidaymakers. We only do not know in how many cities their hotels are located.
The Radisson has a presence in more than 1000 cities in the world that include even Central and South America and the Caribbean Islands.
Radisson hotels rewards may also apply to earning flying miles and by eating in restaurants that they have tie-up with apartment eating in the hotel’s premises.
You may stay in a friend’s place or even in other hotels that cost much less but you still can earn loyalty points by eating in their restaurants.
Well, isn’t it a great hotel reward?

Please note that you would have redeemed a part of your rewards points earned.
