Since there is no prompt for bookerid at swissotel, assume the F&F rate is valid without?

Oh well... like I said, it's up to you guys to take that risk.
Well exactly that happened to me once, not for Fairmont though , but another chain. I was trying to remember my discount code....and put in a code close to it but not that same and viola! I had found a discount . For the record, I have never used it because I find my govt rates or the AAA rates are generally better than my random code, although it does work .

Thanks nyx.t2t for being kind enough to help us out with the Fairmont deal. You are a great friend . I am really looking forward to my stay in the near future ^.

This situation definitely wont count for stay credits unless the family member convinces the front desk to change to your name with your FPC profile and uses his/her credit card to charge. FPC profiles should be for personal stays and every family member and individual should have their own. FPC is usually about personalization. A stay catered for you!

Ya that frustrated me when I first signed up. It's to prevent random people from signing up and sending a ton of spam to the members. You will probably get more messages to send soon.

OT: For additional improvements to your FT experience, you could also upgrade to a FT Premium membership! One feature is increased capacity in your PM mailbox. Another is to use FT ad-free.

Anyone check-in with this deal yet? If so, please post your experience and the hotel you stayed at. Also please mention if you reserved with a booker ID or not and if they needed to confirm the name at check-in. It'd be nice to get some feedback to help the ones who may be still skeptical or hesitant on using this deal.

E-mailed the Boston Copley Plaza and the rep mailed back: "Completely understandable. There is no documentation needed. I will put notes in your reservation you would like a nice quick and easy check in process."

The question was, "There's been conversations about booker id's w/ the Fairmont friends and family rate. I'm aware that IC hotels and Marriott both require some sort of corporate documentation. I did not want to have a long conversation at check-in. What will i need to provide the agent at check-in for this rate to be valid/honored? I want to ensure a smooth check-in process and a relaxing stay..."

Well that's good! Will save you from re-booking with an ID or carrying one with you.

Good idea. I'll have to send a similar e-mail for my reservation.

Checked in last Saturday for 1 night using NFAF promo code and original booker ID per OP (thanks CanuckFlyHigh^). BTW, no questions asked at check-in. The stay just posted this morning on Fairmont Presiden'ts Club as a Qualified Stay. ^

Looking forward to the rest of my Fairmont stays.

Talking Checked in at the Plaza, 4/10/09

No questions about rate code, in fact excellent service, great welcome from all staff encountered so far & beautiful room. Given welcome letter from General manager on arrival, which I'm pretty sure is given to all guests. Hotel is sold out today, so very busy & yet, everyone is soooooo nice. Love it!
Also, I used the original Booker ID posted here when I made my reservation back on 4/3.

a big Hip, Hip Hoorah to CanuckFlyHigh!
