As I have been frantically trying to find a reasonable room rate for our guests, I accidentally stumbled upon something that may be helpful to others.
I had been calling the local line of hotels, thinking that speaking to someone on-site would be more cost-effective than calling corporate. As I was on the phone with a local sales manager, she quoted me a price– I had the hotel’s website pulled up for the dates I wanted and the rates were cheaper. When I asked her, she told me to call the corporate number to get the lower rates! Then she asked me not to tell anyone when I called over to corporate because it would look bad on her. I called corporate and sure enough– $25 cheaper!
This may already be common knowledge for some, but it was news to me! Hopefully this helps others. Check the hotel chain’s corporate website and search for a number for the sales dept. Good luck!
