Club Carlson Adjusting Hotel Award Categories

1 Comment

Club Carlson just released a list of hotels moving up/down in award categories. The number of hotels changing in award categories is 269. The change will take place on May 31st, 2012. You will have until May 30th, 2012 to book at the old levels. InterContinental Hotels Group, Starwood Preferred Guest, and Marriott already did their category changes earlier this year.

Club Carlson was kind enough to release a list of hotels moving up and down broke down by markets. It is quite surprising that the number of properties moving up 141 is closely followed by the number of properties moving down 128.

Here’s a reminder how many points per night different category Club Carlson properties require.  

Category 1 = 9000 points per night

Category 2 = 15000 points per night

Category 3 = 28000 points per night

Category 4 = 38000 points per night

Category 5 = 44000 points per night

Category 6 = 50000 points per night

If we are looking the overall category shift, the largest number of properties moving up are in category 2 and 3. Move up from category 2 to 3 almost doubles the number of required points per night. Shift from category 3 to 4 is almost as bad.

When we look at the category shift down, about 80% of the moving properties are in the same categories 3 and 4 as on the previous diagram.

Below you can find the category shift happening in different regions both up and down.
