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 from UK credit cards (January 2021)

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:

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, Shangri-La Golden Circle Jade and MeliaRewards Gold status.  We reviewed American Express Platinum in detail here.
