Just some additional info

I have still all the codes nicely collected, and when I want to book a hotel for private purposes, I try them all, to see which gets me the best rate at the hotel I want... laborious but saves a lot of money.

My company ID does not have my company's name on it, and this is the trend, increasingly... In addition to that, large companies that negotiate rates with Hilton Family hotels, can only keep them if there is large usage for them, so basically the hotel likes it because they fill up the rooms, and the company like it because it gives them bargaining power... What is the big deal about using them?

I mostly lurk on here, because I find it fun, and I seldom log on (get the newsletter, mostly :-)

If you think my collection of codes can be posted here with impunity, please let me know, or if you want to PM me, I'll try and log in again soon.

Incidentally, I use these codes regularly in London, BKK, ORD, LAX, Paris and Rome.
Just a little more info: Corporate accounts are usually renegotiated after a certain time (year to year). Sometimes, not always, a new booking code is issued at that time.

Regarding id requests, most, if not all, hotels have verbiage in the contract stating that id is required at check in to obtain the rate. However, as stated before, this practice is very inconsistent among hotels' front desk staff. Evaluations are conducted regarding which corporate accounts are booking the hotel. Rest assured that when you book any code, it is recorded somewhere to be evaluated at a later date. The same can be said for promoton codes, which are evaluated for effectiveness of the promotion.

Regarding consultants/contractors, corporate accounts may or may not allow for persons not actually employed with the company to be eligible for the negotiated corporate rate. It really just depends on how the contract was written. This is primarily the decision of the company with whom the hotel has the contract, not the hotel.

Just a general comment for anyone planning stays for next year, please note that in many cases, discount codes or special corporate agreements may not yet have been put into place for 2010. It has been my experience that in many cases, some of these rates may not be fully loaded until later this month or even in the early part of January.

Yep, I'm looking for discount codes for a trip to Seattle in a week.

I've never used discount codes before, but it sounds nice!

Is it:

Promotion/Offer Code:
Corporate Account Number:
Group/Convention Code:
Travel Agent Number:

Thanks!

I've used our corporate code for 2 years and have never been asked one time to show a business card or our company ID badge.

the IBM codes generally work for me :-S

the shorter one works for the better and more expensive hotels generally, such as Conrads.

there are a Cisco and a Siemens code that always seem to work too.

I have put all the codes in a little list and I use them at need, works every time...
