Club Carlson has had this elite offer going on for couple of years for weekend stays.
4 for 2 Nights – Promotion code RSGP2P2
You need to stay for Wednesday and Thursday or Thursday and Friday, and you will get Friday and Saturday or Saturday and Sunday for free. This offer is valid at participating Club Carlson locations in Europe, Middle East, and Africa.
Here’s a search that I made for Dubai for checking in on 23rd of May for four nights:
The only available property was the Radisson Blu resort in the neighboring Sharjah. This is only 20 to 30 minutes away from Dubai in a cab. Just did the ride couple of weeks ago.
As you can see from the rate details, the charge is 300 AED per day for the first two days and the day 3 and 4 are free. The average daily rate is only 150 AED.
This 300 AED rate is not the lowest as the hotel is offering rates that are discounted by 10%. But it is definitely not a bad deal.
There are quite a few hotels in Dubai where this rate is not available at all. Then there are hotels where it is available, but just not during the dates I was looking at. You can pull up the rate calendar and instantly see the dates when the rate is offered.
This is a fantastic discount offer for Club Carlson Gold and Concierge level elite members. You can save a significant amount of money by saving over the weekend. Also, the rates that the discount is given are not inflates as is often the case with some other chains like InterContinental.
I wrote apiece about getting a status match with Club Carlson if you have a status with a competing chain.
