Question Hotel payment from corp for points redemption?

Couldn't get results in search, so starting new. Please point me in the right direction if this has already been covered.
How much does a U.S. airport hotel get paid from corporate for points redemptions? Rack rate? Crew rate? Somewhere in between?
In your experience, does a points redemption at a U.S. airport hotel get up to seven days' free parking (i.e., treated as a park and fly rate) at mid-sized airports--not NYC, MIA, LAX, etc.?

With IHG, the hotel gets paid a nominal amount (like $10-$20) unless it is 95% full in which case it gets paid rack rate.

I believe Hilton is similar. Sometimes I earn base points on redemptions erroneously, and the amount indicates how much Hilton paid the hotel for that night.

Thanks for the quick reply. Dynamic pricing for corp payments? Makes sense.
