I thought I’d just run a quick reminder on the following deal, just in case you were intending to make a booking but hadn’t found the time yet this week (which is precisely what happened to me!):
Last week, Radisson Rewards ran a genuinely excellent ‘flash sale’, offering offering four of its Park Plaza brand hotels in London for just £89 per night. What was particularly impressive about this, was that you could book dates all the way through to the end of September and the rate was fully flexible – you didn’t even need to pay anything in advance. So, it was basically a completely risk-free way to book quite nice central London hotels for £89.
Given that normal prices are double that (or more), it made sense that this was a ‘flash sale’, with a limited 72-hour booking window. The sale was due to end on 20th March 2021.
However… the sale kept running all the way through this week – click here to access the heavily discounted rates.
Although the “72-Hour Flash Sale” graphics are still in place, the terms were adjusted to the following:
As you can see, it is in fact possible to book up until 27th March 2021. Unless the sale is extended again, what that means in practice is that you need to complete any bookings you intended to make by Midnight TONIGHT (Friday 26th March 2021)
Availability (even for peak Summer Holidays dates) remains excellent, with the £89 per night rate widely available:
If you weren’t sure about booking before, perhaps the knowledge that you can upgrade to a balcony suite with Westminster views for as little as £50 extra might change your mind? Full details here.
The more I’ve though about this deal, the more I like it. I had already made a few bookings and, having spoken to friends/family over the weekend about possible dates, will now make some more. If foreign travel isn’t possible (or is unreasonably difficult) this Summer, London could still be incredible once most people here in the UK have been vaccinated.
If an even better deal turns up (or God forbid the vaccination programme isn’t as successful as hoped), you can just cancel and haven’t had to pay any money up front anyway!
Basically, if you think there’s any chance you might be in London this summer, you might as well book something now.
There’s really nothing to lose, so long as you remember to cancel 48 hours before the stay, if you can’t go.
