October 13 Update: The first Radisson Blu Hotel in Canada has opened in Toronto, Air India launching Vancouver-Delhi flights & five new bonus offers


The first Radisson Blu Hotel in Canada has officially opened its
doors. The Radisson Blu Toronto Downtown. This hotel used to be the the
Radisson Admiral Toronto-Harbourfront and it has undergone a massive
renovation. The hotel opened up to the public yesterday and is now a
Category 5 hotel in the Radisson Rewards program. This means it will
cost you 44,000 points per night for a standard reward night or 66,000
for a premium room. 


However as you may have seen earlier on Rewards Canada today
Radisson is offering a 25% points rebate on redemptions so if you
redeem 44,000 points for a standard night you’ll receive 11,000 back as a
bonus. We checked availability and most nights for the next few months
are available at the hotel at the 44,000 point level (33K if you book by Oct 25). Learn more about the first Radisson Blu Hotel in Canada here.

Here’s an example of a redemption at The Radisson Blu Toronto Downtown:

44,000 points – well 33,000 if you take into account the 25% rebate for a $174.52 room. That’s a return of 0.52 cents per point which is right inline with about what Radisson Rewards points are worth. At 44,000 points it wouldn’t be worth redeeming for if you are a CPP (cents per point) watcher.
