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 or 0560041604 (check both codes - as some some properties offer MVP rates - but only via one of the codes, not both).

HGI and Hilton 1135262 or 0041604 (check both codes - as some some properties offer MVP rates - but only via one of the codes, not both).

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 $25
  • 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.

I just checked - AARP rate clearly states 2PM checkout as "when available" not​​​​ guaranteed.

Point taken. Nevertheless, in the 10+ years I've been using AARP rates, I've never been turned down when I made a declarative statement: "I'm going to use check-out at 2pm".

When I need a late check-out and not under an AARP rate, my declarative statement is a little less matter of fact: "I'm going to need a 2pm check-out". I've never been turned down at any property (as a Gold or Diamond), but have had front desks track me down around Noon because whomever I talked to earlier in the day didn't bother documenting it.

For that small dollar deviation, I booked the AARP rate, as it gives me an automatic 2pm check-out. While most Hamptons would agree to a Gold's 2pm request, why take the chance of a no. There is a slight chance I may take advantage this upcoming trip of the late check-out. Plus it eliminates 100% of the chance MVP ID is requested - although in a half dozen years of regular use, no one has ever raised even an eyebrow on its use.

There are a few sports clubs can be joined for US25. Anyone knows a club for lower than US25? Thanks.

This is the first time this has shown up when I am choosing a room... I wonder if they are going to start requiring this. Has anyone booked that is not a US citizen?

This has existed since the beginning of time with MVP. Almost no properties (none with me) have enforced this rule.

Interesting for me, the other day when I was using the mvp portal login I got maybe one or two in Seattle. Then when I tried again using the individual codes a bunch more popped up. I have never had this happen, usually I just use the mvp portal since it is supposed to be a catch all. I wonder if some are slipping through.

I didscovered the same late last year. I now always add the codes manually to get more results.
