Each week, we will be taking a look at a hotel or airline elite status level and the benefits that come with it and how to leverage earning the status.
So far we have looked at Hilton Gold, Hilton Diamond, Starwood Gold, Starwood Platinum, Hyatt Platinum, Hyatt Diamond, Marriott Silver, Marriott Gold, Marriott Platinum, Fairmont Premier, Fairmont Platinum, Omni Platinum, Omni Black and Club Carlson Gold status.
Overview of Club Carlson Concierge Status
So for this week, we will be taking a look at Club Carlson Concierge status, which normally requires 75 nights per year.
How to Earn:
(1) 75 nights in a calendar year
(2) 30 stays in a calendar year
Benefits of Club Carlson Concierge Status
- Earn 20 Gold Points per dollar spent
- 15% discount on Food & Beverages
- Free Internet
- Points + Cash nights and redeemed Award Nights now count toward your elite status
- 75% Point Bonus
- Rollover nights
- Complimentary Room Upgrades
- Early Check-In and Late Checkout
- In-Room Welcome Gift
- 48 hour Room Availability Guarantee
- Free Continental Breakfast
Other Ways To Earn:
While you can’t earn Concierge status without staying, having the Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature® Card provides automatic Club Carlson Gold status just for having the card.
The great thing is if you already have the status, you will receive 15 qualifying nights toward obtaining or maintaining Concierge Elite status.
Club Carlson Concierge status seems not to generally be worth it considering you have to stay 75 nights or 30 stays a year and the benefits are not much better than Gold status with them.
I think I would opt just earn Gold through their credit card or even stay the 35 nights, but the only real benefit over gold is the continental breakfast.
Are there any Club Carlson Concierge members who feel differently?
