The Park Plaza hotel group has launched a special promotion for its new London Waterloo hotel. We covered the opening here – it is very close to the Imperial War Museum, is basically opposite Lambeth North tube station and is a short walk from the South Bank / Waterloo.
Until Sunday night, you can book a Superior Room for £139 for Friday-Sunday nights and £159 midweek. This includes breakfast. Your stay can be at any point between 18th October and 31st January.
Park Plaza is part of Radisson Rewards so you will earn points in that scheme, which can be topped up by a transfer (at 1:3) of American Express Membership Rewards points. American Express Platinum cardholders will have Radisson Rewards Gold status.
The Park Plaza home page is here.
How to earn Radisson Rewards points and status from UK credit cards (January 2022)
Radisson Rewards does not have a dedicated UK credit card. However, you can earn Radisson Rewards points by converting Membership Rewards points earned from selected UK American Express cards. These include:
- American Express Preferred Rewards Gold (review here, apply here) – sign-up bonus of 20,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 60,000 Radisson Rewards points. This card is FREE for your first year and also comes with two free airport lounge passes.
- The Platinum Card from American Express (review here, apply here) – sign-up bonus of 30,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 90,000 Radisson Rewards points
- American Express Rewards credit card (review here, apply here) – sign-up bonus of 5,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 15,000 Radisson Rewards points. This card is FREE for life.
Membership Rewards points convert at 1:3 into Radisson Rewards points which is a very attractive rate. The cards above all earn 1 Membership Rewards point per £1 spent on your card, which converts to 3 Radisson Rewards points.
Even better, holders of The Platinum Card receive free Radisson Rewards Gold status for as long as they hold the card. It also comes with Hilton Honors Gold, Marriott Bonvoy Gold and MeliaRewards Gold status. We reviewed American Express Platinum in detail here.
