  1. I’m a big fan of this program and their credit card.

    I find Radisson Blu hotels overseas to be excellent properties.

    Almost all our recent stays have been with points.

    Have used the final night free credit card offer during the last year in Salzburg, Shanghai (twice) & Panama City. Have booked the same for Melbourne and Sydney in Jan.

    More often then not, our room was upgraded.

    In every case, have been treated to excellent accommodations and friendly staff.

    Love the 40K bonus for re-upping each year. Find this to be my favorite hotel program.

  2. just stayed at radisson blu beke budapest.. no upgrade, no gift. internet free for everyone. free breakfast wouldve been better.

    also stayed at park inn prague 3 days ago.. “business class” room “upgrade”..ok, good. welcome gift fruit bowl..ok, good. 15euro breakfast.. no thanks. free bicycle rental!!!

  3. Stayed at Radisson Blu Budapest 2 weeks ago, upgraded to ‘Business Class’ room, welcome gift, breakfast, movies, internet.

  4. wtf.. why didnt i get an bidness class upgrade.
    good thing i talked the breakfast lady into free breakfast.
    i was there

    budapest radisson blu internet is free for all guests anyway.
    breakfast is not a gold perk

  5. Hmm I didn’t get a free gift the last time I stayed, I think.

    Has anyone used the 72hr room availability? How does that work? Their page says to call the customer service line to find out.
