Promotion Analysis

Park Plaza Riverbank London frequently has the lowest hotel rate of the 17 London location Club Carlson properties.

Friday, August 14 – Sunday, August 17 for 3 nights = $188 per night.

$564 all-in. I don’t know the UK tax rate portion. Assume $450 USD earns 20 points/$1 for 18,000 points earned on cash portion of hotel stay. Plus 20,000 bonus points for a 3-night MegaBonus stay. 38,000 points earned is sufficient for one free night at a Club Carlson category 4 hotel.

I calculate 38,000 Club Carlson points as $200+ in redemption value. I think I can find a good $200 hotel room for 38,000 points. $564 for a 3-night stay and $200 rebate in points brings the nightly rate down to $121 for London.

Keep in mind the Park Plaza Riverbank London has 4 of 5 circles rating on TripAdvisor and is ranked #375 of 1,052 hotels in London. That is a high ranking for a London hotel, however, Park Plaza Riverbank London is the lowest ranked of the Club Carlson hotels in London available for this promotion.

  • Park Plaza Westminster Bridge London (TripAdvisor rank #136 of 1,052 hotels in London on August 6, 2015)
  • Park Plaza County Hall London (#133)
  • Park Plaza Riverbank London (#375)
  • Plaza on the River London (#115)
  • Park Plaza Victoria London (#212)
  • Park Plaza Sherlock Holmes London (#305)
  • Park Plaza Leeds (#38 of 89 hotels in Leeds – 4 circles)
  • Park Plaza Nottingham (#32 of 56 hotels in Nottingham – 3.5 circles)

Park Plaza Leeds

Park Plaza Leeds $102.29 per night. $307 for three nights and earn about 25,000 points for the stay. That is a great rebate worth at least $100 to $150 on a future hotel reward stay.

You only have a little over three weeks for this offer, if you happen to be a Yankee in the UK this month.

I stayed at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge in 2013 and wrote this review.
