Taking advantage of published Hyatt corporate codes and other discounted rates is the best way to save money when you stay at Hyatt hotels.
I am a frequent Hyatt customer and always use either a corporate discount or my World of Hyatt points when I stay at their properties.
In case you aren’t familiar, corporate rates use special codes to identify the negotiated rate a company has with a hotel chain (in this case, Hyatt) and are entered in a “special rate” field to calculate the reduced rate offered by the hotel.
As long as you’re affiliated with the company in some way (employee, customer, vendor), you can take advantage of these negotiated rates and save a lot of money (and earn World of Hyatt Points).
In this article we will cover everything you need to know about using a corporate code with Hyatt including a list of the most popular codes, how to book these rates, and who is eligible to use them.
List of Hyatt Corporate Discount Codes
The following are some of the most popular corporate discounts offer by Hyatt. If you’re an employee of one of these companies or are going to visit and do business them, you can take advantage of their negotiated rates.
|Company TVL Rate
|TVL Rate (Hyatt Leverage)
|TVL Rate (Chainwide)
What code offers the biggest discount?
The discount percentage will vary from location to location and can be up to 50% off rack rates. Consulting firms like Accenture, Deloitte, 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 with a lot of visitors will negotiate great rates in their local headquarters vicinity – such as Proctor & Gamble in Cincinnati, Cisco in San Jose, or McKesson in San Francisco.
These local rates typically offer the highest discount.
What’s included in a corporate rate?
These rates often include more than just a discounted hotel rate. Inclusions will vary depending on what the company has negotiated, but it’s not uncommon to also receive free breakfast, free WiFi, or free transportation from the hotel to your office.
You also may have the ability to cancel the reservation on the same day of your reservation without penalty or check out early without penalty.
How Book With a Corporate Code
It’s easy to book corporate discount codes on the Hyatt hotel website. Just enter the code in the special rate field (pictured below) and your search will reveal if a discount is available at a given property. This is the same field where you can enter a Hyatt Discount Code or AAA Code.
As a general rule, codes that start with an “NC” are national codes that should provide a discount for many Hyatt properties. However, most hotels typically only offer a certain number of rooms with corporate discounts, so they aren’t always available.
What Hyatt Brands offer a Corporate Rate?
In my experience, the Hyatt brands that are most likely to offer a corporate rate are the brands that either cater to or have a large percentage of business travelers. So don’t expect to be able to use a corporate rate at a Hyatt all-inclusive property like Ziva, Zilara or even Miraval.
The brands that will typically offer the best corporate rates are:
- Grand Hyatt
- Hyatt Centric
- Hyatt House
- Hyatt Place
- Hyatt Regency
- Joie de Vivre Hotels
- Park Hyatt
- Thompson Hotels
Most Hyatt properties would rather sell a room at a discounted rate rather than have it sit empty, so they’re fairly lax on asking for ID. However, according to Hyatt’s policy on Corporate Travel, Hyatt does reserve the right to ask for employment verification which can be verified with a business card, badge or company credit card.
As a side note, I used to be a part owner of a Hyatt Place Hotel. As a hotel owner and operator, I don’t think it’s unethical for people to use these rates as long as they are affiliated with the company in some way. I would much rather have the room sold than sit empty!
Other Hyatt Discounts
If you don’t qualify to use a corporate rate, there are still ways to save at Hyatt through a variety of other discount programs. Here are some other options for you to consider.
Hyatt’s Small Business Discount
Hyatt has a small business discount program called Hyatt Leverage, which you can sign up for if you have your own small business or LLC. Savings are typically in the 15% range.
Rates for Seniors, AAA/CAA Members & Military
If you’re 62 or older, you’re eligible for the Senior Citizen discount. All you have to do is select “Senior” in the Special Rates dropdown and the discount will be applied.
The same process applies if you are a member of AAA (American Automobile Association) or CAA (Canada Automobile Association), as well as government employees and members of the military. Just go to the Hyatt booking page and select your special rate from the dropdown box.
Also, if you’re a member of AARP (which kicks in at age 50) you can use code 17497 and the AAA rate code is 17500.
Employees, Friends & Family Members
If you know are a Hyatt Employee or if you know one, you can save a lot through the Hyatt Friends and Family discount program.
Another hotel discount that most people are not aware is a University discount. Colleges and Universities work with local hotels to provide reduced rates for students and families coming to visit their campus.
If you are staying at a hotel that is located near a major university, you can pay them a little visit and possibly get a hotel discount as a bonus!
I have personal ties to Michigan State, University of Michigan, Arizona State and University of Miami, so I like to use those schools in my examples.
If you google “Arizona State Hotel Discounts” you will find a page that shows local hotels in the Tempe/Phoenix area that have negotiated rates with ASU. In the case of ASU, they have discounts with Marriott, Hyatt, Hilton, IHG and several other hotel brands.
These discounts will not work on busy weekends, like parents weekend or a weekend with a major sporting event, but I have used them when visiting my kids at off-peak times and have received savings of up to 50% off the rack rate!
Here are some travel pages to demonstrate what I am talking about:
- Arizona State University Hotel Discounts
- University of Michigan Hotel Discounts
- University of Miami Hotel Discounts
Hotel Corporate Codes at Other Hotel Chains
Most major travel companies (hotels, rental cars, and even airlines) offer negotiated corporate discount codes.
