Club Carlson $95 rates Park Plaza Riverbank London 2-for-1, $135 Westminster Bridge

Like No Mas Coach, I was checking out the offer from London Park Plaza Riverbank for rates of 129 GBP = $173.38 USD with breakfast included from July 24 – September 2, 2016.

Park Plaza Riverbank 129GBP Jul24-26

72-Hour Flash Sale rate 129 GBP Park Plaza Riverbank London July 24-July 26.

The angle I first checked after seeing this deal is see what rates are like around London in August. Is $173 USD per night a good deal? A quick check of Kayak.com showed lots of potential best rate guarantee claims. There seemed to be several 4-star hotels around $130 per night in London. Even some of the Club Carlson hotels looked like they have potential best rate guarantee claims with flexible cancellation rates on OTA sites like Priceline that are lower than Club Carlson website rates.

Club Carlson Gold Elite 2-for-1 and 4-for-2 discount rates

Before I thought to look at Club Carlson 2-for-1 rates and 4-for-2 rates available to Gold and Concierge Elite members, I saw this post on No Mas Coach – FLASH Sale – London Hotel rooms for ~$100 a night. Jon shows how these Club Carlson elite member rates drop the price significantly lower than 129 GBP to the point that the $75 per night room rate savings makes up for the lack of breakfast on a 2-for-1 rate if you are only a Gold elite member.

The combination of low rates at Park Plaza Riverbank and 2-for-1 rates means there are weekends when this hotel is as low as $95 per night in August.

2 hotels in central London offer 2-for-1 rates or 4-for-2 rates for July-August-September dates.

  • Park Plaza Riverbank London

  • Park Plaza Westminster Bridge

Stay Dates: The 129 GBP flash sale rate is available on many dates from July 24 – September 2 and is available to all.

Club Carlson elite member 2-for-1 rates and 4-for-2 rates are limited to some weekends and you must be Gold/Concierge elite.

This is also a hotel I stayed in once in 2013. My room view looked out to Big Ben. I was impressed.

  1. Ric,

    I’ll be road tripping around uk the month of July so dates don’t work for me sadly. Other than $130 kayak rates, any other promotions come top of mind that I should be looking at? My alternatives are burning a ton of points the days we r in London and using a combo of ihg friends and fam, points burning and kayak type straight pay.
