IHG Hotels, like all the others, have negotiated rates for government travelers that sometimes also include leisure travel.
IHG affiliated hotels in Canada offer discounts for eligible government employees who travel on official business. These rates are eligible for points, elite benefits, and night credits.
You can access this offer on IHG’s website here.
Note that, unlike the US Government rate, Canada is only available for those on official business (the US one is also valid on eligible employees’ leisure travel).
Here are the rate requirements:
To receive your discounted rate, be sure to present your official identification or work orders when you check in at any of our participating hotels; many of which also offer special amenities for government travellers, such as free continental breakfast, free local phone calls and other services included in your government hotel rate. Provincial and/or Territorial Governments participating in the Government of Canada Hotel Program should select the Government of Canada option for booking outside of their province/territory.
The US Government Rate:
Unfortunately, IHG Hotels in Canada don’t offer this rate plan for those government employees who travel on leisure, unlike US hotels.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
More than 3,000 participating IHG hotels worldwide provide government rates to active military, federal, state, local, international government employees and cost-reimbursable contractors (CRCs) on official business travel. Advise the agent when making your reservation in order to receive this special rate. Proper ID is required at check-in.
Government/Military/CRC or provincial government rates are not valid in conjunction with any special promotion, discount rate or group rate. Special event and blackout dates may apply and rooms are limited. Guests should present a valid government-issued ID, government credit card or government travel work orders at check-in.
Each participating IHG hotel might offer unique amenities or services for government travelers for their specific hotel such as: free continental breakfast, free local phone calls, free full breakfast, etc. Our brands have standard services that focus on delivering and providing quality customer service to ensure you enjoy your stay with us.
