I've yet to be checked on it. Of course I'm can use it and if checked ill have no issues, but out of ~40 stays, 26 of those this year I've yet to be checked. I've used it both in the US and internationally.

What do you need to show when a government rate is booked at check-in?

I have yet to need to show anything, but I would assume military orders, a government or military ID card or etc would work. Often the rate details say one room per valid Military ID...

Question.. My brother in law works at the Hyatt and he gave me his employee code to hook a hotel on my upcoming vacation. Will I have any trouble booking the hotel and also checking in? Do I need to call the Hyatt that I'm staying in to let them know or anything?

Why don't you just ask your brother-in-law if it's a personal code or also applicable to family and friends... he should know when he's breaking the rules :-).

You will need all his relevant information at the time of the booking: name, title, location.
They will do verification in the background on the info you provide.
As long as everything you provide is correct, you will have no problems at check-in.
You will NOT get stay credit.

ID is usually sufficient for government rate; however, some locations and different chains (i.e. Marriott) request a copy of orders to show you are on official government business. I think I have been carded 2 or 3 times in 5 years.

I suggest those that are eligible to try the FedRooms code in addition to the GOV rate. Three reasons: FedRooms can show availability even if GOV doesn't, FedRooms can be used for leisure travel, and FedRooms will sometimes give more benefits than GOV rate (e.g. waived resort fees).

I don't think that RTW's question on the MaW thread was ever properly addressed, let alone answered. May we do so here?

If you have to ask...

Seriously though, it has its own website. It's on there.
