Hyatt is a widely used hotel loyalty program for business travelers, making corporate discounts a big part of their offering.
If you happen to be associated with any of the partner organizations you should definitely plan on taking advantage of one of these perks. The discount will include a percentage off the nightly rate and will typically include free wireless internet and breakfast.
Depending on where and when you travel there won’t always be availability. It’s worth a check to any city you are traveling to.
Rates are for business travelers only so make sure you are associated and authorized to book with the below rates.
Use the steps below to see if you can receive a Hyatt discount on your next booking.
Locate your corporate rate
If you work for a major corporation there is a high chance you book your hotels through a company portal or have a travel agent secure all reservations. With the corporate rate inserted on the backend a lot of times you may not even be aware of what your own companies code is.
Many companies have multiple rates with Hyatt so make sure you try all the ones assigned to your given organization.
Input discount code into Hyatt search
Hyatt makes it straightforward to search using a corporate discount. Simply navigate to the search bar and expand the column titled “Special Rates”. You will see a dedicated section titled “Corporate Account” and here is where you will want to enter your code.
As soon as you enter your rate and click “Find Hotels” all the results will be eligible for that rate.
Compare preferred vs. direct rates
As mentioned above corporate rates are considered “Special/Preferred Rates” and while they do usually provide discounts, they are actually not always the cheapest. There are a lot of reasons to why, but hotels may be running their own special deal making the standard rate lower than the corporate rate for a given night. We always recommend comparing your corporate rate to other promotions the hotel may be running directly.
In this example, the corporate rate is 15% cheaper per night than the hotel’s direct “Best Available Rate”
Present identification upon arrival
This part can may not always happen but according to the companies official policy, a hotel must check ID to confirm your rate upon check in. Given how most Hyatt are operated independently, we found this to vary wildly based on location.
Acceptable forms of identification include
- A badge with the company name and your picture
- A business card that includes your name, title, and company
- A business email address the hotel will confirm by sending you an email
