Club Carlson Free Fridays blocked at May Fair London and Radisson Blu Champs Elysees Paris

My original plan for Club Carlson Free Fridays was to redeem my two Free Friday nights for The May Fair London and Radisson Blu Champs Elysees. This morning I discovered a glitch in my plan when I tried to redeem one of my Free Friday certificates for Radisson Blu Champs Elysees Paris.

Friday E-Certs are valid for reservations on a single Friday night at any Quorvus Collection, Radisson Blu®, Radisson RED, Radisson®, Park Plaza®, Park Inn® by Radisson and Country Inns & Suites By CarlsonSM hotels worldwide for stays between October 6, 2017 and January 26, 2018.

“Free Friday Night” promotion terms

Both of these flagship hotels in London and Paris are currently unavailable with Free Friday certificates for the entire 13 eligible Friday dates from October 6, 2017 to January 26, 2018. Yet, there is standard reward availability for 70,000 points at both of these hotels for several Fridays during the Free Friday redemption period.

Kind of reminds me of Johnny Rotten’s final comment on stage at Winterland in San Francisco at the conclusion of the Sex Pistols last gig –

“Ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated? Good night!”

  1. I think this is likely an oversight on their part and they have not yet had all the hotels load their inventory in.

    I would contact CC and advise them of this as both hotels come under either Radisson Blu or Quorvos.

    Let us know how it turns out.!

  2. One Mile at a Time posted about this last week – you need to put a code in the promo box.
    Hope it solves the issue for you.

  3. @Rom, @Marilyn – FREEFRI is in the promotional code box if you look at my screen shots. That is why there are other hotels in London and Paris showing $0 nights and the e-cert symbol.

    I have already booked one hotel using one of my Free Friday night codes.

    The issue is The May Fair and Radisson Blu Champs Elysees were not available for any of the 13 Fridays during the redemption period. Every other hotel in London and Paris were all available for a FREE FRIDAY nearly every Friday from Oct 6-Jan 26.
