OCTOBER 5, 2016 UPDATE

There are new MVP codes that can once again be booked in the "Corporate" field of a particular hotel (not all hotels, of course, will always have MVP rates available):

Hampton Inn, Embassy Suites, Homewood Suites, Doubletree, etc. 0561135262

HGI and Hilton 1135262

These codes now also work on the mobile app.

So, you have three choices:

1) Use http://stay.hilton.com/mvp/
2) Use the above corporate codes on the main website.
3) Use the above corporate codes in the Hilton app.

NOTES:

1. When the MVP rate is not available (usually 20% discount), often the "Team USA" rate (15%) will be. Use corporate codes 0002635191 (or sometimes ) 2635167.

2. Homwood Suites are often anomalous in their pricing, with AAA and Sr Rates often cheaper than either MVP or Team USA rates.

******************

Summary of answers to incessantly asked questions

  • YES, MVP can be used by anyone
  • There is no "sports affiliation" required. ( The only HHonors brand still retaining that verbiage in the "Rate Details" for a booking is the Homewood Suites. If you're really worried, you can get a USGA membership for $10
  • There are many reports that the MVP rate can't be booked by the hotel itself or Customer Service; must be done by the guest online.
  • Other reports say if you call in and ask what rates are available, they're not supposed to tell you about the MVP. But, they can offer it if you specifically request it.
  • The rate accrues the normal points.
  • The rate is as eligible for upgrades as any other rate, depending on your status, etc.
  • When MVP rate is not available, the Team USA rate is often the next best choice.

NEW: As of ~April 2015, using the corporate codes for MVP on the regular site seems to not return any MVP rates. Instead go to hiltonfamilymvp.com

In the "Corporate Account" box type:

For MVP - 0041604 for Hilton and HGI; 0560041604 all others. MVP rates are not commissionable to agents; a very few properties may require press credentials - read booking terms.

20% off BAR at some hotels/resorts. I try to use it, or the Gold rate, when booking. MVP is better but less available.

Ok, I obviously know what an MVP rate is, but what is the "Gold" rate? Are you referring to the "Go for the Gold" rate:

or something else?

That's been my experience in the last month or so.

MVP rates commonly aren't available if hotels are particularly busy but I haven't checked the events schedule for Portland.

This really ought to be appended to the thread linked by sdsearch.

I haven't been able to get the MVP code to work but the Team USA one still seems to work.

It's been working for me, at least for some hotels. Using the N004 code.

It's just odd because in the past, I've gotten a message at the top indicating that the requested rate (MVP) is not available, then a list of available rooms at the standard rate. This time, I'm getting two lists, one listing MVP rates at the exact same prices as the regular rates.

That is odd.

I've found that sometimes I can get the mvp rate using the hiltonfamilymvp.com site when nothing comes up on the regular site.

I just booked an MVP this morning.

Standard rate comes up, and if selecting 'use Honors points' the room/rate shows as available.

If I click through to book then I will see a different, lower rate.

just made reservation at a hilton hotel using the mvp corporate code - in the account the reservation shows: mvp rate. the email confirming the reservation says:

Corporate: 0041604
TA: DG AFFILIATE DO NOT PAY DIRECT

what does that TA stuff mean?

Thanks!

TA stands for Travel Agent, and suspicion is that this means no TA commission should be paid given the rate booked. Wahtever it does mean, it has no relevance for you as the guest.

I have been booking with 0560041604 and has been working. Tried to book this morning with the same code and got this...anyone else seeing this as well?

0041604 worked, 0560041604 gave me the error below:

Corporate account code is not valid. Verify that your entry is correct and try again.

The codes (like the website) can be flaky. Just try again in a few hours.

056 doesn't work in the hotels where 0041 works and I think vice versa.

It's either or, so that's not a question of come back later; just stick with the one that works.

I don't know why Hilton chose to do so, but the two codes are needed for different brands (see sticky above). If 0041604 works, then 0560041604 shouldn't.
