Using Best Western Corporate Codes to get discounted hotel rates is a great way to save up to 20% on your hotel stays. They are very easy to use, you just need to understand what these codes are, how to use them, and which ones provide the best discount.
In this article, we will dig deeper into Best Western Hotel Corporate Codes, including what they are and how to use them. More importantly, we will provide a list of codes that you may be able to use.
What are Hotel Corporate Codes?
In case you aren’t familiar with them, Corporate Codes are special rate codes that are used to identify the negotiated rate an organization has with a hotel chain (in this case, Best Western Hotel Group) and are entered in a “Corporate Code” field on the booking page to calculate the reduced rate.
These rates apply to corporations, members of certain organizations, universities, and government officials. They can be either local discounts with a specific hotel or national discounts that apply across the entire chain of properties.
Suppose you’re affiliated with an organization that has the negotiated rate in some way (employee, customer, vendor). In that case, you can take advantage of these corporate discounts and save a lot of money!
Best Western Corporate Rates
Corporate discounts will vary from location to location and can be up to 20% off rack rates.
Below is a list of some known Best Western corporate codes (with the codes embedded in the links). However, discounted rates with these codes are very hard to find. Like Wyndham and Choice Hotels, Best Western doesn’t get the same level of business travel as Hilton, Hyatt, IHG, or Marriott, so they don’t have as many properties that offer corporate rates.

Best Western University Discounts
The corporate rate table in this article includes a few businesses and several universities. If you are going to be visiting a city that has a major university, you may want to “take a tour of the campus” to do some scouting for a current or future child or grandchild. If this is the case, search Google for the university’s negotiated travel rates. These rates can offer some pretty nice savings for people who are on campus tours.
How to Book with a Best Western Corporate Code
There are two places where you enter a corporate code when booking with Best Western.
At the top of the booking page:
Go to the Best Western Booking Page. Enter your destination, then in either the check in or check out field, hit the down arrow and some additional fields will show up including the number of adults and children as well as the rates field. Click the arrow on the rates field and you will find another field where you can enter the Best Western corporate code.
On the search results page:
If you forgot to enter the corporate code on the original booking page, don’t worry, there is also another option to enter the code on the property search results page. It will be the same “rates” table as in the first example, but this time you will find it on the left side of the page instead of the top.
Best Western Corporate Rate Example: GE Rate
In an effort to give you a feel for how much you can save using a Best Western Corporate Rate, I have two examples below using the Best Western GE Rate.
Example 1: Chicago, IL – Best Western River North
When using a GE Corporate Code at the Best Western River North in Chicago, you can save 16% off the best available member rate.
Example 2: Orange Beach, AL – Best Western Premier, The Tides
When using a GE Corporate Code at the Best Western Premier in Orange Beach, AL, you can save 19% off the best available member rate and 6% off the prepaid rate.
Identification Requirements when Using a Corporate Code
Most hotel properties would rather sell a discounted room rather than have it sit empty, so they are lax about asking for an ID.
However Choice does reserve the right to ask for employment verification or university affiliation. Proof of employment may be verified with a business card or company credit card. Proof of university affiliation can be with a student or staff ID badge. If you are not able to show your affiliation with the organization, you may be required to pay the full rack rate.
