Club Carlson Status Match

Club Carlson hotel chain is offering a status match where you can receive either Silver or Gold status. While I personally don’t think even Gold status gets you much, if you are planning on staying at a Club Carlson property, you might as well try to get the status as you never know! Club Carlson hotels include: Radisson, Radisson Blu, Radisson Red, Park Plaza, Park Inn, Country Inn & Suites. Here are the full terms of the status match.

To Request a Status Match

To get a status match, send an email to statusmatch@carlsonrezidor.com and in the subject line write “Status Match”. In the email, you must include the following info:

  • Full name
  • Club Carlson number
  • Frequent guest program you are matching to (i.e., Hyatt, Marriott, etc.)
  • Membership number and tier level for the other frequent guest program
  • Proof of status from the other guest program (i.e., copy of your membership card).

Your request should get processed within one week of submitting the required information.

 

What Does Club Carlson Status Get You?

Unfortunately, they will not match to their top tier Concierge status, only Silver and Gold. Concierge status is what gets you club lounge access and breakfast which in my opinion is one of the best perks of hotel status.

As I mentioned before, if you have status with another loyalty chain, you might as well request the match. I’ve stayed at Radisson hotels in the past while having Gold status and it really didn’t do much for me. But, you never know! As of now, there is no end date to request the match, but you might as well do it sooner than later!

Comments

  1. I was denied this. Never been matched by Carlson before although they mentioned the one time only rule but was also told it was only available to new members.

  2. If you’ve matched before, they will decline the status match. If you are persistent, and ask nicely, they might give it again. My Wife and I both matched before and were turned down. We asked again to reconsider and we were both matched again.

    I beg to differ w/ you that there is little value. When they had the Aruba property, we were upgraded on two point stays w/ gold status to a $700 per night suite for a total of 18 nights. We had a stay & fly last week and left the car for 6 days @ the hotel. They gave us free parking because of gold status. It would have cost $5 per night, so we saved $30.

  3. I am Hilton Diamond and already Club Carlson Gold, are there any other program will match my Diamond?

    Thanks.

    • @hoang -if you have ihg platinum, SPG platinum, Marriott platinum, or Hyatt diamond, those will all match to Hilton diamond.
