Did You Know the Club Carlson Booking Calendar is Open 3 Years?

On June 1, the Club Carlson Visa is dropping its last night free award stay benefit and a number of properties are changing price. FrequentMiler suggested Top 7 ways to milk the Club Carlson card before and after June 1. Points With a Crew compiled a sortable table and map of the price changes.

I started to plan out my next year of probable bookings and then noticed the Club Carlson booking calendar stretch on and on. 3 years it spools out.

How far they go is hotel-specific. 2016 is reliably available wherever I search. I have Mother’s Day 2016 booked at Radisson Blu Mall of America.

From 2017 on, it is slim pickings. Stretching out to May 2018 I found 2 Park Inn’s in London with points rates.

Club Carlson May 4-6 2018

Note that a number of their properties, especially around peak times, have expansive cancellation policies. I have encountered 14 days for Phuket and 30 days for Omaha next Berkshire Hathaway Annual Meeting.

In my experience most Park Inn hotels have point rate loaded for 2017 and 2018.

Is there a list of hotels that are accepting reservations using points in 2017 and 2018? I see many hotels accepting reservations in 2017 using cash but not points. I tried to get some of them to open up inventory but no luck.

Also, where can I find a complete list of the hotels and their “cost”. I can’t seem to find it anywhere.

If you book so far in advance…what happens if you have to cancel? You just lose the free last night?

RTC – I feel like there’s a story behind the hotel your wife wanted to leave after one night? 🙂
That only ever happens to us when (me) the room is filthy, which I’d recognize right away rather than stay a night; or (my husband) when the air conditioning unit is very loud.
Actually, practically speaking, I wonder how that works when you want to leave a hotel early.

Burned all our Club Carlson points as follows tonight:
4 nights @ the Warwick, Philly in June
10 nights @ Radisson, Grenada over Thanksgiving 2015
8 nights over President’s week 2016 @ Radisson, Aruba

Spent 18 night @ Radisson, Aruba in the last 6 months and really like the resort. Taking a chance w/ this booking because the front desk told me that if sold to Hilton, they would honor reservation through 2015.

Cool, thanks – just wanted to make sure they weren’t likely to come back after the devaluation date and take one of the nights away. Maybe it was because it was an international hotel…

When you say “does not work” can you tell me what you mean? I did it a couple hours ago for a hotel for two stays in October. I’m wondering if it will get canceled on me or if I’ll have a problem when I check in.

What happens if you book back-to-back two night reward stays? Do they later come back and cancel one or is that possible to do?
