Carlson Hotels Friends & Family Discount


Many of the hotel chains are offering discounts for friends & family members of their associates. Carlson hotels is no different on this.

Note that I would use this rate plan only if I knew someone working for Carlson hotels as the name of the employee friend may be requested prior or during your stay. It shouldn’t be too difficult to find a person working for Carlson Hotels from anyone’s extended circle of friends.

Searching for Friends & Family Rates


Searching for these rates is easy at Carlson’s website. You only need to use promotional code CARLSONF when doing the rate search.


The availability of this rate plan is very spotty as one can expect considering that the price is fixed at 80 euros per night. You can use the rate calendar that shows two months availability at a time.


There were only two properties in Paris that had any availability this year and both offered few dates in August.

Things to keep in mind:

1. You need to know someone working for the Carlson Hotels.

2. The availability can be very spotty at popular locations.

3. The price is equivalent of 80 euros in local currency.

4. Breakfast is included as are all the taxes.

5. It is not qualifying stay for points or stay credit.


This is a terrific offer for friends and family members of Carlson hotels. The price of the room is fixed regardless of the location and includes all the taxes and breakfast. You should ONLY consider using this rate if you know someone working for Carlson hotels and have their permission.

During times when Club Carlson is running good point promotions it probably makes sense to pay the regular rate to get qualifying stay and associated points in the process.
