The new Radisson Blu hotel in Chicago’s 86 story Aqua skyscraper is set to open on November 1, and to mark the occasion, Radisson is offering triple AAdvantage Miles when you stay at any of their hotels through December 15:

Earn Triple American Airlines AAdvantage Miles
When You Book A Stay At Any Radisson Hotel Worldwide

Celebrate the North American debut of Radisson Blu with the opening of the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel, Chicago and earn triple AAdvantage miles on your next eligible stay at any Radisson hotel worldwide from October 15, 2011 through December 15, 2011.

A stay at Radisson will normally earn you 500 AAdvantage Miles, so with this offer you’ll earn 1,500 miles with each stay.  From the terms of this offer:

American Airlines AAdvantage members who provide their member number at the time of check-in can earn a total of 1,500 AAdvantage miles for each Eligible Stay during the Promotional Period. There is no maximum on the number of Eligible Stays that can qualify for the bonus during the Promotional Period.

No double-dipping, it’s either Club Carlson points or AAdvantage Miles (not both), and to qualify for the miles you have to make your reservation through Radisson.  You can go here for the full details of their Triple AAdvantage Miles offer.

If you’re not familiar with Radisson Blu, it’s Radisson’s upmarket brand, with 158 hotels in Europe, Africa, and Asia. The new Chicago location is the first Radisson Blu hotel in the United States, and the building they selected, the Aqua, is one of the more interesting looking skyscrapers in a city that really takes its architecture seriously.  You can see a photo tour of the hotel here.
