Hilton Honors is one of the top used hotel loyalty program for business travelers, making corporate discounts a major part of their offering.
If you happen to be lucky enough to be associated with any of the partner organizations you should definitely plan on taking advantage of one the corporate perks. The discount can be sometimes as much as 30% off the regular nightly rate and will typically include free wireless internet and breakfast.
If you happen to know a Hilton employee or are one yourself, checkout our guide to Hilton Team Member Travel Program that offers by far their biggest discounts.
Depending on where and when you travel there won’t always be availability but given it’s a major city you are almost always likely to find space.
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 normal nightly price since there are times a corporate rate can be higher based on the corporations deal terms.
Note for booking you must be associated with the organization and authorized to do redeem the rate. Use the steps below to see if you can receive a Hilton discount on your next booking.

Input discount code into Hilton search
Hilton 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 Account” and here is where you will want to enter your code.
As soon as you enter your rate and click “Find a Hotel” all the results will be eligible for that rate.
Compare preferred vs. direct 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. We always recommend comparing your corporate rate to other promotions the hotel may be running directly.
In this example, the corporate rate is 15% cheaper per night than the hotel’s direct “Best Available Rate”
Present identification upon arrival
This part can may not always happen but according to several hotel group’s official policy, a hotel must check ID to confirm your rate upon check in. Given how most Hilton are operated independently, 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, hotels in Asia tend to check ID almost 100% of the time but in North America and Europe, it has been less than 10%.
