citizenM New York

Save 30% with citizenM bookings

We don’t cover citizenM hotels much on Head for Points, since they don’t offer a loyalty programme or miles in any airline scheme.

The chain is growing strongly, however, and it now has 20 hotels including three in London and one in Glasgow.

Those who use it seem to have a level of enthusiasm which is rare amongst hotel brands. We reviewed citizenM New York Times Square as part of our ‘My Favourite Hotels’ series a few months ago.

    Has anyone found a Vueling flight for the £9 price from London?

    I have tried searching their direct flights from Gatwick across all months and yet to find anything!

    • ChrisBCN says:

      That price will be for Spanish domestic. Somewhere around double that price will be the cheapest you can get from UK to Spain

    • David says:

      I would not fly vueling even if the tickets were free! Both flights were delayed by hours. You have been warned.

  • Phil G says:

    Is there a promo code for the Radisson offer ? The 30% off with breakfast isn’t showing when I search

  • Laura says:

    Qbic hotels are offering £40 bookings throughout 2021 and I think they are releasing new rooms everyday.

    I booked a Saturday night in January.

    It’s room only, but it’s still a good price for a zone 1 (just) hotel that’s not Travelodge!

    • Laura says:

      Actually, I booked for London but they have the same offer for Manchester and Brussels (€40) as well.

    • Rob says:

      I stayed at Aldgate / Whitechapel when it was £1 – there is a review if you search. I liked it.

      • Laura says:

        Hi Rob,

        Me too! A few years ago now and not been back since. It’ll be interesting to see if it’s aged well or not, but I liked it at the time

  • tony says:

    With Hong Kong still as good as closed, it seems optimistic in the extreme that CX expect people will part with their hard earned cash in the next 9 days on the off chance the stars will be correctly aligned by the date of travel…

  • mutley says:

    Update on my October Radisson stay, The Hotels IT system was playing up and had me still checked in a week after I had left, no points on my profile after two weeks, I had a whinge at Radisson, eventually got a response from corporate saying the rate wasn’t eligible for the 5000 points, 20 minutes later the Hotel itself emailed apologizing and deposited 20000 points into my account for the check out cock up!
