Radisson Rewards only has a few top-tier properties in the US. One of the benefits of the Radisson Rewards credit cards (formerly the Club Carlson Rewards credit cards) is that you can get a free night at any property in the US for each $10K you spend in a cardmember year (up to $30K). Within the US, there are only 4 top-tier properties, and it looks like they are losing one later this year.

Club Carlson is making some changes... and in this case, they're not necessarily bad.
Earlier I wrote about how Club Carlson is being rebranded as Radisson Rewards. This is part of a bigger shift, as Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group is being rebranded as Radisson Hotel Group, to better leverage the Radisson name. The brand has quite a bit of recognition in Europe, though management acknowledges that the brand is lacking in the Americas (in terms of quality and quantity), so they're going to work on building some new flagship properties in the Americas, and also improving existing properties. In addition to the rebranding, there are also some changes being made to the Radisson Rewards program. The thresholds required for elite status have been lowered, and at the same time the points bonuses for Silver and Gold members have been decreased slightly. There's also a positive change to the co-branded credit card, which I didn't write about earlier. This used to be known as the Club Carlson Visa Card, but is now known as the Radisson Rewards Visa Card. There are a few versions of this card, though the Radisson Rewards Visa Signature Card has a $75 annual fee, and offers 40,000 points upon your account anniversary every year.
