CitizenM has a spring sale running at the moment, offering 22% off hotel rooms. However, you don’t have long as the offer ends tomorrow (Sunday).

All sale bookings are flexible, and can be cancelled up to 6pm on the day of arrival. This means you have nothing to lose by locking in a booking even if there is a chance you may need to cancel later.

You don’t need to prepay your booking either.

The sale is valid for stays from now until 31st August.

All citizenM hotels are included in the sale, but the number of rooms is limited. That said, I had a look at availability at a few citizenM locations and there are still plenty of rooms at sale prices, including in the UK school holidays. Here are some examples:

  • London Shoreditch – from £144 on 30th July (a Saturday AND in the school holidays)
  • New York Bowery – from £169 on 1st August
  • Copenhagen Radhuspladsen – from £115 on 16th August

You’ll need to sign up to myCitizenM to get the preferential rate. This isn’t really a loyalty programme, despite the name – it’s more of a newsletter sign-up tool. You can do this in the booking process.

About citizenM

CitizenM doesn’t have a points-based loyalty programme so we don’t feature them much on Head for Points. However, it has a good reputation amongst readers who find the sleek approach to ‘affordable luxury’ very appealing.

We featured the citizenM New York Times Square in our ‘My Favourite Hotel’ reader reviews series in 2020. Rhys was very impressed when he stayed at citizenM Tower of London (click for our review) last year.

CitizenM is expanding, with 21 locations currently and a further four openings coming in the US – in San Francisco, Menlo Park, Chicago and of course, the current destination du jour, Austin, Texas.

The brand focuses on using technology to provide frictionless service and puts environmental and social responsibility at the heart of what they do. This isn’t at the cost of design or comfort – Rhys found the in-room tech impressive at his stay at citizenM Tower Bridge and was a big fan of the stunning rooftop bar:

    Ir’s a shame about their room design though, with beds pushed under the window and wash hand basins in the room.

  • Graham C says:

    I do really like CitizenM’s hotels. Stayed at their Washington DC location last month. Great bed, lovely staff and close by to the metro. Will look at them for my trip in June.

  • JimBurgessHikl says:

    Fabulous! Just rebooked our night at Schiphol Airport pre ex-EU to San Diego saving €30! 😀✈️

  • Blair Waldorf Salad says:

    CitizenM gives me Moxy vibes. Or rather, I always felt Moxy was Marriott’s attempt to ape CitizenM. I’d look up which came first if I cared, but I’ll never stay in either so won’t bother. It us good to have these clearly defined propositions such as W, CitizenM, Moxy though – makes it much easier to discount entire brands when hotel searching. Whereas I still can’t tell the difference between a Sheraton, a Westin or a Le Meridien bar the fact LMs tend to have feature wallpaper behind the bed.

  • ChrisC says:

    I’ve stayed at the Schiphol one a couple of times. Ok for one night but I wouldn’t want to stay any longer than that.

    Distinct lack of plugs / USB ports though.

  • 1ATL says:

    At least you’re clear and upfront about this being a sponsored article. I knew something was afoot when I scrolled down and down on an overly depthy article which relates to not that bigger deal. I still fail to see any correlation to the brand and to points earning…. apart from the occasional Amex offer. They’re completely off my radar primarily for this reason. Also for the reason they don’t really have a USP over someone else or presence in unique locations.

    • Rob says:

      They are hugely popular with readers, irrespective of the points option. This is the 2nd time they’ve run an article like this and they are very happy with the numbers. The bookings today have been FAR stronger than, for example, the recent IHG flash sale.

      • 1ATL says:

        So long as the sponsor is happy then then that’s alright then. Your defense to their cause is admirable.

        • Rob says:

          But if no-one booked then they wouldn’t keep booking more articles!

          I’d guess we turn down at least £5,000-worth of sponsored articles per year because we think the advertiser would be wasting their cash. The total amount of advertising we reject is well over £10,000.

          Sinead is currently in slightly bizarre discussions with a hotel brand which we have tried to put off but is insisting they want to spend money to be featured. We are therefore trying to find a subset of specific hotels or room types which would work for our audience. 98% of travel sites would just take their money (decent four figure sum).

      • Emma says:

        I don’t have many (/ any) points to use with the chains often featured on here but do travel a lot (staying in independent hotels, brands cheaper than Marriott/Hilton/etc or AirBnBs) so I love articles about deals like these, keep them coming please!
