Taking advantage of negotiated Hilton Corporate Discount Codes is a great way to make sure you getting the best value for each dollar you spend on your hotel stays. You will have to be eligible to use these rates, but if you are, they can significantly reduce your nightly rate.
What is a Corporate Discount Code?
In case you aren't familiar with them, Corporate Discount Codes are codes that are used to identify the negotiated rate a company has with a hotel chain (in this case, Hilton) and are entered in a special rate field to determine the reduced rate.
As long as you are affiliated with the company in some way (employee, customer, vendor), you can take advantage of these negotiated rates. Unlike discounts offered through Online Travel Agents (OTA's) these codes allow you to save money and still earn Hilton Honors Points.
Hilton Corporate Discount Codes – The List
Below are some of the most popular Corporate Discount Codes for Hilton. If you are an employee of or are going to visit one of these companies for business, you can take advantage of their negotiated rates.
The discount will vary from location to location, and can be up to 50% off rack rates. Consulting firms like Accenture, CapGemini and IBM have a lot of consultants traveling every week so they are going to have some of the best “chain-wide” or “system-wide” discounts. However, many large companies have a lot of visitors and will provide some great rates in their local headquarters vicinity – such as Proctor and Gamble in Cincinnati, Ford Motor Company in Detroit or Harley Davidson in Milwaukee.
Why Does Hilton Have 2 Different Corporate Codes?
It's important to note that Hilton can have two different corporate codes for any given company. You'll need to understand the background of these codes to make sure you use the right code at the right Hilton Brand. Both are listed in the table below and categorized as either “Hilton Code: Acquired Brands” or “Hilton Code: Hilton Brands”.
The codes in the “Acquired Brands” category represent codes associated with DoubleTree, Hampton Inn, Homewood Suites, Embassy Suites and Home2 Suites.
After all these years I can't tell you why they haven't consolidated the corporate codes into one code per company, but I can tell you why they have two codes.
The codes are separate because they maintained the corporate codes that were associated with the brands Hilton acquired from Promus Hotel Corporation in 1999. Therefore, these brands have a separate code from the traditional brands Hilton has developed organically.
The codes in the “Hilton Brands” category represent codes associated with traditional and newer Hilton brands such as Hilton Hotels, Conrad, Tapestry, Tru, Waldorf Astoria, Curio Collection and Hilton Garden Inn.
How to Apply a Hilton Corporate Discount Code:
You will need to enter the company's specific Hilton corporate discount code in the “Corporate Account” box for the corporate discount to apply. This box can be found when you click on the plus sign in the lower right corner of the booking table, then click on “add special rate codes” to reveal the three special rates code options..
Enter your destination and travel dates, then add the corporate discount code in the Corporate Account box. Click the “find it” button and the hotels that are offering that rate will show up.
As long as you are affiliated with the company in some way (employee, customer, vendor), you can take advantage of the negotiated rate your company has with Hilton and save a lot of money!
