Standard Award vs. Premium Award

Be careful when selecting Premium, I'm finding that in many cases you get the same exact room. Here is an example that I just pulled from a Radisson property:

Club Carlson - Premium Award-Guest Room
ROOM:

Guest Room amenities include:
-Complimentary Internet access (wired and wireless)
-37 inch flat panel television
- Eco-Friendly Bath Amenities
- work desk and chair
- alarm clock/radio
- coffee maker
- iron with board
- hairdryer
-Premium Cable or Satellite TV.

Yeah, maybe you get a higher floor or something but it doesn't say that. Don't waste your points - if the premium award is truly that, then inquire as to the difference before you drop your points!

At the Radisson I frequently stay at (blu Edwardian London docklands).

They have taken what were standard rooms and upgraded them to premium.
So they are the same size room with mostly the same facilities but now in terms of the room you do benefit from the upgrade they have completed.

Oh what did they actually upgrade?

They added a small metal badge saying business suite or something to the door.

Its nice when you stay and get an upgrade too, that metal badge on the outside of the day really improves my stay
