Best Western is a popular hotel program with over 4,700 locations around the world.
It is often a great choice for business travelers from consultancies, banks, and even universities to rack up thousands of nights each year. It’s no wonder these companies have negotiated a special discounted rate just for their employees that provides a discount on each stay.
If you happen to be associated with one of these organizations you can take advantage of a discounted rate. The discount can be sometimes as much as 40% off the regular nightly rate and will typically include free wireless internet and breakfast.
Depending on what city and the time you are traveling the availability will vary. Also, just because you find a corporate rate doesn’t always mean it will be the lowest rate the hotel has to offer. Be alert to compare the rate you find to the regular nightly price since there are times a corporate rate can be higher.
If you are a business travel then here is how you can book a corporate rate at Best Western properties.
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 a travel agent. This means your corporate rate is inserted on the backend and you may not even be aware of what your own companies code is.
Best Western makes it easy to search using a corporate discount, Simply navigate to the search bar and expand the column titled “Rates”. You will see a dedicated section titled “Corporate” 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.
As mentioned above corporate rates are considered “Special Rates” and are actually not always the cheapest. There are a lot of reasons to why but hotels may be running their own special making the standard rate lower than the corporate rate for a given night.
If you are comfortable prepaying make sure you check the tab furthest to the right. Often times this is the cheapest rate for any hotel room since you are securing the revenue for the hotel.
Present identification upon arrival
This part can may not always happen but according to Best Western official policy a hotel must check ID to confirm your rate upon check in. Given how most Best Western are franchised owned we found this to vary wildly based on location.
Acceptable forms of identification include
A badge or pass with the company name and picture
A business card that includes your name and company
An email address the hotel will confirm by sending you a confirmation
