Michael W Travels reported in early March that the Radisson Blu Warwick Philadelphia was leaving Club Carlson effective April 1, 2016.

I had an upcoming 2-for-1 award stay and Club Carlson notified me the reservation will be honored.

Radisson Blu Warwick Philadelphia

There are now only 3 Radisson Blu’s in the US (2 in Minnesota, 1 in Chicago). Recent talks of a sale of Radisson may slow development of the brand even further.

There are many Radisson Blu’s in Europe. The brand is an odd duck to me, somewhere between 3.5 to 4-star, sometimes cool, often disappointing for their price point.

Another nearly-minnesotan (Western Wisconsinite). Earliest hotel memory is the duluth radisson with the rotating top floor. Left me with an irrational affinity for Radisson. We made i tto all 4 Radisson blu in the US. Sadly, the blu moa was a snooze (why oh why would I want to be there), and the blu downtown a disappointment as they dried up practically all availabilitybefore going to 70k. I LOVED them at 44k with 2-for-1 as a green. Chicago aqua was really nice. I liked that a lot in summer. Made it to phl Warwick last fall. Fun lobby. Disappointing room.… Read more »


Huh, as a native Minnesotan, I like to like them and I mostly do. I have an upcoming reservation at the Radisson Blu in Brussels. When it changed over to become the very first Radisson Red I never received any notification. Just happened upon it when rechecking reservations. I thought that that was odd. Not sure Radisson Red is what we had in mind when booking the stay.
