American Express currently have an offer for a £50 statement credit when you spend £195 at Guoman hotels. There is also an offer for Enjoy 2,000 bonus Avios when you stay at Claridges, The Connaught or The Berkeley this summer.

Who are Guoman hotels?

You probably haven’t heard of Guoman hotels unless you have stayed at one. They have a small group of Luxury London hotels comprising of The Royal Horseguards Hotel, The Grosvenor Hotel, The Tower Hotel and The Cumberland Hotel.

The Royal Horseguards is actually right opposite one of my favourite hotels, The Corinthia. Although I haven’t stayed there, it has a good reputation and a lovely terrace overlooking the London Eye. It is a couple of minutes walk to the Embankment tube and Waterloo is also walkable in about 15 minutes. TripAdvisor reviews are very good with 4.5/5 average score which you can read here.

The Grosvenor is a 4* hotel which also scores 4.5/5 on TripAdvisor and is very handy for visiting Buckingham Palace. It is very close to Victoria Station and Tube. The other hotels do not get great reviews on TripAdvisor and look decidedly more downmarket.

What is the Amex Guoman offer?

Grosvenor Hotel, London

The offer gives a £50 statement credit when you spend a minimum of £195 with Guoman. It is only available to the first 10,000 Cardmembers who save the offer to their Card. It was still available yesterday when I wrote this article. If you don’t have the offer on your card, you can phone or message and Amex and they will usually add it to your card for you.

You need to book, pay and stay by 29/09/2017. The offer is valid on checkout spend only for stays booked direct through Guoman. Food and drinks spend is excluded from the offer but given the average price of the hotels it shouldn’t be an issue.
