Club Carlson has offered Silver and Gold status matches from competing programs already for a while but this is the first time I have seen them emailing about it and having a dedicated web page up.

Club Carlson Status Match

Club Carlson is the loyalty program for Carlson-Rezidor Hotel Group that include brands such as Radisson, Radisson Blu, Country Inns & Suites and Park Plaza.

You can access Club Carlson’s web page for status match here.

  • Send us your full name
  • Club Carlson membership number
  • Name of other frequent guest program
  • Membership number and tier level of the other frequent guest program
  • Copy of your membership card from the other frequent guest program (PDF or JPG files only)

Submit by email to statusmatch@carlsonrezidor.com (please include “Status Match” in the subject line)

Here are the benefits of Club Carlson Silver & Gold:

Conclusion

Club Carlson’s highest status is Concierge but that has never been part of the status matches done. These matches were previously done within a day, although they now state that it may take up to a week.

The problem that I have with Club Carlson is that the benefits of other statuses besides Concierge are weak compared to the competition and inconsistency of the Radisson brand. You never know if that Radisson Blu is really an acceptable choice or not.

It is worth having a status with them, however. You may find that there are some cities where Radisson Blu is a top branded hotel such as in Belo Horizonte where I happen to be at the time of writing this.

    This is only good for people never having had Carlson status match before…it’s kind of a one time thing with them..shame.

    • Roger Wilco

      For years and years Carlson have comped my status to Gold, from any of the competitors on the list (they even comped SAS *G status!)

    • Manxie

      Indeed, a one-off chance as I re-applied for Gold (using Hilton Diamond) after 2 years and refused. Anyone managed to have more than one match?

  • Henry Larsen

    They appear to be somewhat selective in what they consider ‘competing program[me]s’ to be. I sent a request based on my Best Western Diamond status and they replied ‘Sorry, no’.

  • Marcie

    I replied with my Marriott Gold status and their reply was that their Silver Status is equal to Marriott’s Gold and they gave me Silver. Their silver and gold are both lower than Marriott’s.

    IHG Gold to Club Carlson Silver, within 6 minutes.
