Hilton Family MVP Rate

I saw the MVP rate on the too large "any new promotions" thread. I booked a suite at the DT Times Square on http://www.hiltonfamilymvp.com at a great rate- in fact cheaper than the identical time frame three years ago. My question is, can anyone use the MVP rate? It's apparently a rate designed for Olympic committees, etc. I couldn't find any terms and conditions except, "Special Rate- HHonors number required when booking. Subject to availability restrictions at each Hotel. Restrictions: Must be requested. Do no offer. HHonors number/card required when booking. 20% off BAR..." I was able to book the hotel with the rate type, "MVP Program Rate at Doubletree Guest Suites Times Square- New York City," which is printed on the confirmation. Should I have any concerns that I will show up and told to pay rack rate?

I would assume if you printed out your reservation with the rate listed, that should be sufficient to quell any argument. YMMV.

Cheers

Hilton Family MVP?

I'm tyring to find out more about the MVP program, but search does not work for "MVP" (too short). In particular, it appears to offer 20% off BAR, and a fast track to gold (standard 4 stays or 9 nights in 90 days). What is the MVP program?? Open to anyone??

TIA

I just looked up some hotels on that website that I may need to stay at. Some did not have any MVP rate offered, just the Best Avail.

Another had a nice MVP rate offered with just standard requirement "must be asked for/not offered."

And yet another had an oustanding price BUT also included these significant restrictions:
Special Rate. Press Credentials are required at check in.
Subject to availability restrictions at each Hotel.
Restrictions: Must be requested. Do not offer. Press
Credentials are required at check-in.Individual sports
traveler program. Travelers will have direct affiliation
with professional sports clubs,collegiate athletic
departments or amateur sportsAssociations.
Features: Special rate. Subject to hotel availability,
length of stay restrictions, Blackout dates may apply.

Appears it's only good for hotels in the US.

You have to enclose "MVP" in quotes for Search to be able to find it.

I've used MVP rates a few times without any issues at all. They're not always available at a given hotel on given dates. But they are a good deal when they are! (They are NOT prepaid and they ARE cancellable, unlike the other low rates called "Net Direct" rates.)

As for the Fast Track to Gold, that is offered to various people in various ways -- not just on the "Hilton Family MVP" website. For example, it seems to be routinely offered to Golds when they fail to requalify.

Ditto. I've been using the MVP rate all year (thanks to learning of it on FT) and gotten all the benefits of any other rate.

We book all our rooms through the MVP website and have never had an issue. I love that I we usually pay the AP rate but can cancel if needed.

I booked a MVP rate at a Homewood last week. The confirmation page that I printed up stipulated I needed to provide proof of press credentials. Obviously I ignored the requirement and no such proof was mentioned at check in. I have been booking rooms via the MVP portal for almost two years and never saw press credentials printed on any other of my confirmations. Gave me quite a chuckle.

New to the MVP rate

I just used the MVP rate on Jan 6th.
I got a nice discount and had no problems.
I did not see any specifics or requirements about credentials or affiliations needed.

This just seems to be a good deal.
