Radisson Hotels & Resorts Announces New Bed & Breakfast Packages For Summer

Minneapolis, MN | June 30, 2008

Radisson Hotels & Resorts® today announced the launch of two new Bed & Breakfast packages designed for both couples and families seeking convenience and added value this summer. The Bed & Breakfast packages include special breakfast vouchers for families and couples, along with 2,000 bonus Gold Points® from the company's goldpoints plusSM loyalty program. The packages are available at all Radisson properties throughout the United States, Canada and the Caribbean from July 1 through Sept. 15, 2008.

"The Bed & Breakfast packages we're offering Radisson guests this summer combine a high quality breakfast featuring selections from our Tasteful Choices menu available at most hotels and a great night's sleep, including the option of a Sleep Number® bed that enables guests to adjust the firmness of their mattress to suit their comfort," said Baron Carr, vice president of Brand Marketing for Carlson Hotels Worldwide, parent company of Radisson Hotels & Resorts. "With higher gas prices forcing people to cut back on travel expenses, Radisson hotels are determined to help both couples and families get more value for their vacation dollar while also earning great rewards."

Bed & Breakfast Packages
The Bed & Breakfast couples and family packages include a breakfast voucher worth up to $20 (USD) for couples and up to $30 (USD) for families, with breakfast available in the hotel restaurant or from room service. Each package also offers 2,000 bonus Gold Points from goldpoints plus, the company's loyalty program which provides free hotel nights in more than 70 countries and airline miles with more than 20 airline partners. The packages also include a great rate, with prices starting as low as $99 per night, depending upon location and number of guests; and a special SLEEP NUMBER® bed room, where available.

Radisson Special Services and Amenities
Radisson Hotels & Resorts feature healthy food choices through their Tasteful Choices menu, available on restaurant menus or through room service in many locations in the United States. Radisson recently enhanced the Tasteful Choices menu, doubling the number of available breakfast, lunch and dinner options. Radisson partnered with The Culinary Institute of America to develop Tasteful Choices recipes that range from healthy and low-fat options for the health conscious traveler to rich, decadent options for the traveler wanting to indulge.

Radisson Hotels & Resorts feature Sleep Number beds throughout the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean, which help guests achieve more deep, restorative sleep during their stay. Unlike traditional innerspring mattresses, the firmness of a Sleep Number bed can be adjusted at the touch of a button, allowing individuals to find their individual SLEEP NUMBER® setting -- a number between zero and 100 that represents each person's ideal level of mattress comfort, firmness and support.

To help guests take advantage of these Bed & Breakfast packages, many Radisson hotels offer an online "Virtual Concierge" to assist guests in planning ahead. "Virtual Concierge" offers top 10 lists of leisure activities, dining, arts and culture, and shopping hot spots and is listed on the individual hotel pages on the brand Web site. For assistance with tee times, tours and site-seeing plans, friendly and knowledgeable concierges or front desk staff are also on hand to make recommendations.

Radisson offers Express YourselfSM guest check-in service, where guests can check-in via radisson.com at their convenience up to seven days in advance of their arrival, providing an expedited check-in and enabling more control over their hotel experience. For reservations for the Bed & Breakfast Packages at any participating Radisson hotel or resort call 800-333-3333, contact your travel consultant or, starting July 1, visit radisson.com/breakfast in the United States or Canada. All rates are subject to change and availability.
