TEAM USA rate

I'm seeing some excellent rates with the corp. code 2635191 (TEAM USA). Who can you this rate?

"Athletes, coaches, friends and family can save on their next stay" according to this:

http://directconnect.hilton.com/dc/about/about.jhtml

So does that mean anymore could use it? Can they ask for any proof/credentials? Would it be enough to print that page and show it in case of any questions?

Thanks in advance!

I guess if you're part of TEAM USA or affiliated with it, you could use the rate.
If you're not, then you shouldn't

It's been around for awhile. No I.D. required.

I use it whenever the MVP rate isn't available.

I usually root for the American swimmers in the Olympics.

(Usually.)

Thus, I am a friend of Team USA.

No wait...I know my daughters are members of a swim club, and it's affiliated with some sort of national (U.S.) swimming body.

Thus, I am a family member of Team USA.

I thought the MVP rate was the Team USA rate.

I used to work with a man whose younger brother was an Olympic athlete -- he competed on a USA Beach Volleyball team in Beijing and London. So I think I qualify for either rate.

And if that is not enough, I can always pull out my trump card. Back when I was nineteen, someone at LAX actually thought I was an Olympic athlete.

Not all Hilton properties offer those special rates. Always check the special offer box when booking through the hhonors website.

Sometimes I find the Team USA corporate code to also be 2635167 (at least in my experience for Hampton and DoubleTree). IOW, I try 'dem all !

I generally find Team USA to be a 15% disc, while MVP is 20%

as others have said 15% off is alot better then $0 off , but I prefer MVPs 20%

You must have learned your maths same place I did...

I find the TEAM USA rate is used best when the MVP rate is not offered, which I have found on occasion.
