I get asked all the time how can I book this hotel for less, and one of the best ways to book hotels is by using hotel corporate rates. However, one question that comes up is it is ethical to book a corporate rate that you don’t qualify for, including an AAA or AARP rate.
For example here’s one property which has the cheapest rate for $179 a night, vs. an IBM corporate rate for $101. Which one would you book here, especially knowing this hotel has a self-service check-in option so you don’t even have to see a front-desk agent.
Which rate would you book?
For today’s question: Is it ethical to book random hotel corporate rates that you don’t qualify for?
