Lowest Room Rate Guarantee

As per the terms and conditions of its Lowest Rate Guarantee, Choice Hotels guarantees that the best rate available for any Choice brand hotel or resort property will be on the official Internet web sites of Choice Hotels, through its call centers, or by calling the property directly. If you find a lower price for the same hotel or resort property, type of accommodations, the same dates and the same terms at any other qualified source via the Internet, the lower price will be honored and residents of the United States will receive a reward card worth $50.00 in United States dollars; while residents of Canada will receive a reward card worth $50.00 in Canadian currency. International residents will receive their first night free for that stay.

Other Select Terms and Conditions

Corporate travelers may book through a travel agent or corporate booking system.

Any change made to earning preference will remain in effect after the promotion has ended. Allow 72 hours from checking out of your stay for points to post.

Hotel properties are independently owned and operated; and amenities vary by location..

Choice Privileges members will receive at least two percent off of the best available rate of a participating hotel property; and up to seven percent off of the best available rate all days of the week. The actual discount rate relates to the best available rate of a participating hotel property — which is a specific rate type that varies depending on time of purchase — is unrestricted, non-qualified and excludes any other discount rates. Early depature fees, deposit and cancellation restrictions may apply and will vary by hotel. Unless otherwise stated, quoted rates are per room per night, based on a single or double occupancy.

To maintain an active status in the Choice Privileges Rewards Program and retain accumulated Choice Privileges points, you must engage in qualifying activity beginning with the first day of the month after your activity is completed through the eighteenth consecutive month of inactivity, such as completing a qualified point-eligible stay, earning points, airline miles or Amtrak Guest Rewards points, redeeming Choice Privileges points, earning points from a purchase using your Choice Privileges Visa credit card, earning points with one of our partner programs, purchasing points and referring a friend. Choice Privileges points will be forfeited in accounts with no qualifying activity during the previous 18 consecutive calendar months.

Other restrictions, terms and conditions — including those of the Choice Privileges Rewards frequent guest loyalty program — apply.


Reward nights at Choice Hotels worldwide are available from 6,000 to 35,000 points at greater than 6,300 hotel and resort properties — excluding Australasia, where points required are up to 75,000 points — so theoretically, you can earn enough points to stay up to five nights at Choice Hotels properties.

This is a decent — albeit unexciting — promotion in which to participate if you are already a member of the Choice Privileges frequent guest loyalty program.
