Multiple rooms using AAA rate?

I am sorry if this has been discussed before, I did search it but could not find answers.

I am the AAA member and if I make reservations for 3 rooms(my family) using AAA rate, can the hotel apply the rate to all 3 rooms or just 1 room( I am the only one having AAA card?
When I checked it through SPG site using AAA, I can book multiple rooms under AAA rate.

Also, do hotels in Europe check AAA card for all the rooms, or shall I just show my card?
All the rooms are under my name and I will pay for all.

Thanks in advance.

No problem. You can use it for all rooms. 99% of hotels do not ask to see the card.

Very good chance everything will be fine. To be safe, check the terms on your rate. Some properties state AAA member must be staying in the room in which case they could ask for three AAA cards. Just checked one SPG property and all it says is AAA ID required at check-in, so no problem.

I almost never get asked for my AAA when booked under their rate, but it's always wise to be prepared and know the terms you've agreed to so there are no surprises.

In my mind, there *should* be a difference between booking adjoining rooms for children versus three couples traveling together or the family including related adults in an extended family. Similarly, one AAA card should not get unlimited discounted rooms for business colleagues traveling in a group or for a big meeting in the hotel.
