Radisson Elite Status

Benefits and How To Qualify

Anyone willing to earn Radisson Elite Status will have access to some great benefits. This includes bonus points, food discounts, complimentary room upgrade, check-in and check-out perks, and free breakfast. Radisson features the standard 4-tier program which consists of Club, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. This page will cover the benefits and perks of each Radisson status level.

How To Qualify

Elite status in the Radisson Rewards Program is earned based on the total number of nights or stays earned during the calendar year. Once you hit the required amount of nights or stays for a tier, you will be given that tier of elite status for the remainder of the calendar year and all of the following year. You will need to re-qualify for elite status every year.

Radisson Nights

Nights are defined as the total number of nights you're spending at the hotel. If you check-in on Monday and check-out on Friday, you would earn 4 nights since you stayed overnight Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Friday night would not count because you would not be staying overnight.

Radisson Stays

Stays are defined as the time you check-in to the time you check-out. Using the same check-in example, a completed Monday through Friday reservation would count as 1 stay. Earning elite status through stays is great for those who tend to do a lot of short hotel bookings in which it could be hard to qualify based on total nights.
