So I work at front desk in a hotel. We just had a guy come in and say he needed a room and that he was traveling for work but not with his company =/ *okay* Could I give him a corp rate. So tonight our rates are 112 plus tax and my corp rate is 104 plus tax. He said I cant do that so I went to 92 plus tax.( I could have gone to 89 as my lowest but he was being a snobby jerk). He then tells me that he "believes he saw us on hotwire for 62 a night. Can I use your computer it will be easier than my phone" >=| Yes Sir, its right around the corner. First off, hotwire doesnt tell you WHO you are staying with. At the toll exit we are at there is our company, a Super 8 and a Best Western. There is no way on God green Earth that our room would go that low. So Im at front desk and I hear him print so I check the res list and there isnt anything. He walks past and says "well I guess I dont get to stay with you tonight" and walks out. I will just say, that if you are going somewhere ALWAYS call the hotel (stopping in is better) and see the lowest possible rate. If your nice and its slow I will always work with a person as much as Im allowed to get them to stay here. We will have families that 1 will go online(priceline, hotwire expedia) and see the difference that their family pays then gets upset.
