Heads up! Carlson Rezidor will be rebranding to Radisson Hotel Group. Also, they just revealed that they will also be changing the loyalty program Club Carlson name to something else. If they change it to Club Radisson or something that will certainly suck. It is a long article that goes into detail about the convoluted ownership scheme of this outfit. It was purchased recently by Chinese conglomerate HNA Group and recent rumors of cash shortages abound as the company is facing a $29.3 billion short debt position, which is mind boggling actually! There have been layoffs, they state that they are going to reinvest in properties and shed 10% of under performing properties, etc. If you think the Radisson name inspires excitement and confidence (it does NOT!) you would think these guys know what they are doing. No future here folks, burn your Club Carlson points…the program which was amazing when it wanted to be noticed (remember the free award nights wow!) to now slowly going into oblivion…
