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 on their website. 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 corporate vs. standard 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.
In this example, the corporate rate is 15% cheaper per night than the hotel’s direct “Best Available Rate”. We always recommend comparing your corporate rate to other promotions the hotel may be running directly.
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
What Locations Offer Corporate Discounts
An important thing to note is that not all corporate discounts are made the same across Hyatt. Each hotel is typically required to negotiate a corporate rate with each company making the amount you get discounted vary by location and hotel popularity.
In our experience cities that attract more business travelers will often have the most discounted hotels available.
Companies That Get The Best Rates
Not all discounts are created equally and naturally some companies have negotiated better rates than others. The rate you receive is based on the amount of stays a company provides to a certain hotel leading to a better discounted rate.
Typically companies that travel the most such as Deloitte, IBM, Accenture, and At&t will get the best rates as well as have the most available hotels. If you are affiliated with any of these companies then you can expect the best rates at various properties around the world.
How To Negotiate A Corporate Rate At Hyatt Hotels
If your company does not currently have a corporate rate with Hyatt you can negotiate one. Note you will need to negotiate with each Hyatt hotel individually instead of Hyatt as a whole so choose your locations and properties carefully.
The process is a bit informal but starts by sending an email to the corporate-programs office or directly to a hotel manager if you are a frequent visitor. The process for joining may vary by hotel but generally involves filling out an application indicating number of employees, expected stays, and additional details. Once agreed you will obtain a code that will enable you to see discounted rates on Hyatt website and app when booking.
