Marriott Bonvoy is the most popular hotel loyalty program for travelers.
The company boasts 30 different hotel brands and over 7,000 properties in its portfolio making it one of the largest worldwide. Marriott Bonvoy loyalty comes with a number of benefits for frequent travelers especially those that can reach the highest tier of status.
It’s no surprise that Marriott attracts a large number of business travelers. Employees from consultancies, banks, and even universities rack up thousands of nights each year at properties around the world. It’s no wonder these companies have negotiated a special discounted rate just for their employees.
If you happen to be associated with one of these organizations you can take advantage of these perks. The discount can be sometimes as much as 30% off the regular nightly rate and will typically include free wireless internet and breakfast.
Depending on where and when you are traveling the availability will vary. Also just because you find a corporate rate doesn’t always mean its 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 Marriott properties.

Input it into Marriott search
Marriott 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 / Promo / SET#” 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 Marriotts official policy a hotel must check ID to confirm your rate upon check in. Given how most Marriotts 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
In our experience almost all Marriotts in Asia check ID 100% of the time but in North America and Europe it has been less than 10%.
What Is Included With A Corporate Rate?
A corporate rate is not always just a discount in room price, they often come with additional perks. In our experience the most common additional benefits include free wifi, breakfast, and at times more flexible checkout.
Another major benefit in booking with a corporate rate is the ability to cancel up until the last minute. Marriott typically offers the ability to cancel any corporate rate booking until a few hours before checkin. This is a huge benefit as often plans change and allows you to make bookings without having travel plans fully confirmed.
Each property varies in what they offer business travelers so make sure you read the details before booking.
Who Is Eligible To Use Corporate Rates?
This will vary by company but it’s not uncommon for full time employees, contract workers, consultants, or those affiliate with an organization to use a corporate rate. If you work for an organization on the list but are not aware if you are eligible seek out advice internally.
Often times if you are affiliated with an organization to obtain identification associating yourself with it that is usually enough for a hotel group to consider you eligible.
Marriott corporate discounts should also only be used when traveling for business. If you are planning leisure travel you may not be eligible to book on a corporate rate. It’s also no surprise that many hotels in vacation heavy destinations do not offer corporate discounts.
Note for booking you must be associated with the organization and authorized to do redeem the rate. Use the steps to see if you can receive a Marriott discount on your next booking.
Marriott Codes For Employees, Family, and Friends
Marriott has an Explore program that gives a special discounted rate to employees, family, and friends to use when vacationing at Marriott properties around the world. The discount level has two tiers, an employee rate and friends and family rate, that differ greatly in discounts and availability. The codes are as follows:
- Marriott Explore Rate (Code: MMP)
- Marriott Explore Friends Rate (Code: MMF)
To learn more about rate eligibility, discounts, and how to use it see our Guide To Marriott Bonvoy Explore Employee Rate.
What Locations Offer Corporate Discounts
An important thing to note is that not all corporate discounts are made the same across Marriott. 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.
Whether you are traveling to New York City, Rome, or any city for that matter, make sure you check the latest rates at the time of booking.
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 Marriott Hotels
If your company does not currently have a corporate rate with Marriott you can negotiate one. Note you will need to negotiate with each Marriott hotel individually instead of Marriott 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 Marriott website and app when booking.
