Looks like some nice places to visit.
I recall upthread that your account was hacked and you got comped some certificates.   How else are you earning Radisson (club Carlson?) Points? CC spend?
From the Radisson Blu Visa, have 3 of them. They did not comp me certificates, just restored my points, had over a million points, but they offered me Platinum status for 14 months, which I'll never be able to earn on my own.
Have been to Norway over 5 times, almost all over , except Tromso which I think I'll add to the trip. You can use Amex MR by transferring to Choice hotels, Clarion Collection hotels, they and Radisson Blu are the only points option in Norway.
I was the Best,still the Best, and will always be the Best.

Very nice.  Good to know about Radisson Blu and Choice.  Please write up a TR when you return. :)

Nice. I recently also used a cert when rates were 400 range at some rural random Marriott, almost sold out.
Always praying for delayed baggage.

Any hotel recommendations for very nice hotel in Hong Kong. So far I have the Ritz booked on points.

I stayed at the Grand Hyatt on the island side in a suite and it was beyond amazing.

I've also been to the Shangri la in Kowloon and its great and luxurious too. This hotel is the closest to the Sefardi shul and minyan and very convenient if you are there over Shabbos. They know all about not using the elevators or electronic keys and are very accommodating.

Haven't been to the Ritz yet but it's on my bucket list.
