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.

This is very, very disturbing. Luckily, Team USA code still seems to be accepted.

However, you can try booking the MVP rate from the Hilton Family MVP site. That still seems to work. Though that site seems to have changed--it's no longer that really awkward booking list view--booking looks like a normal Hilton page, except that the Corporate MVP rate is checked off for you at the top.

MVP codes have not been offered at my airport hotel now for almost a year. Not sure what happened.

Booking through http://stay.hilton.com/mvp/ still works, with same rates as last week (at the hotels I checked).

looks like you may have to manually enter the URL since clicking on the link in the previous post puts me into the regular booking site for some reason (maybe a cookie thing). From my favorites or manually entering, the same link gets me MVP booking and the right prices--weird!

I tried omitting the leading 0 on the code for Hampton Inn, etc. ("560041604") and was able to just book the MVP rate through the regular Hilton site.

Didn't work.

It is, of course, the weekend and that is when the HHonors websites often becomes even less usable than usual. So, I will hope this is a temporary thing as has been seen before on weekends.

Precisely, BlondeBomber. The BAR is the wrong price. We need it to be 20% off BAR. LOL. I'm just glad that it's still possible to do it like that to get our right prices. Hope that the website manual code refusal is only a temporary thing.

Interesting...I checked again and that trick is working on my computer so it seems like it is just another Hilton IT oddity, and hopefully something that will be back to normal for everyone soon.

The International Gold Medal Rate is no longer working (D000030070). Trying hotels where I used it last week, I'm told that it's an illegal code!!!

Yes, it is.

The Hilton/HGI code is still working perfectly for me.
The Hampton/Doubletree/Embassy Suites code works fine if you drop the leading zero.

Best I can work out, the leading 0 should never have been there. After you enter it on the website it was always stripped anyway - I suspect this weeks website "upgrade" stopped the stripping from occurring so it's now showing as an invalid code.

I prefer to use the MVP website, which is working just fine:

http://stay.hilton.com/mvp/

I have never seen any mention of credentials required nor have I ever been asked for any.

However, in looking at the HGI (DEN), it clearly states "Credentials required at check-in" in the rate details, where normally it just states HHonors number required. Doing a spot check of some of my other go-to properties where I normally use MVP, none of them had that in the rate details. Interesting. Has anybody recently stayed at the DEN HGI on an MVP rate and run into issues?

This was the case for many places in the early days of MVP in addition to statements having to be affiliated with a sports team and the such. Seems many places just cut and paste standard text when creating their rules. Personally, something as nebulous as "credentials required" means nothing.

Since the terms for MVP are "must be an HHonors member" perhaps that's all the credentials required.
