Hilton HHonors has had the very popular MVP rate for years that offers 20% off at participating properties in the Americas (Canada, United States, Brazil, Mexico etc.), Hawaii and the Caribbean while being eligible for all status benefits and stay/night credits + points.
The rate rules used to only require Hilton HHonors number to be eligible to use it. Some properties now require the person using the rate to have sport affiliation (of any kind). First the rate used to be only bookable using specific corporate rates codes and later Hilton made this rate bookable only on specific MVP website that has now been disabled.
You must make the MVP bookings using the following rate codes:
You can click the codes above and the field is then automatically filled on Hilton’s website. Sometimes you need to try all the codes to bring up the rates.
Note that you can only book this rate online using the links above. Hilton HHonors phone representatives or properties are not allowed to offer this directly.
Here are the rate rules:
There are two separate rate rules that are attached to this rate plan depending of the hotel.
One requiring a sports affiliation
and another one only requiring being a Hilton HHonors member.
If you book your stay at a property that requires one and you don’t have any sport affiliation, you can always become a member of the US Golf Association for $10 (access here).
Here are some rate displays:
DoubleTree Los Angeles Downtown
Embassy Suites Waikiki
DoubleTree Times Square
Homewood Suites Miami Downtown/Brickell
The MVP rate tends to be the lowest (often albeit not always lower than the AAA) and doesn’t require advance purchase. You can even book it on the day of arrival if available.
If you use the rate plan a lot, just sign up for some sport affiliation such as the Golf one for $10 that I mentioned above.
Hilton seems to be playing around with this rate plan. They disabled the MVP booking site and came up with new corporate codes for this rate plan, although the old ones are working as well. Sometimes the new code doesn’t bring up the MVP rate while the old one does.
