Ya Gotta Ask: Hotel Discounts For Senior Travelers PDF Print E-mail

Even though you were quoted a price that included a senior discount when originally booking with a travel agent or online, speak up. When actually eye-to-eye checking in at the hotel front desk, ask if there’s an additional senior discount in effect.

Additionally, when your room is being assigned, further ask if you’re eligible for a free upgrade to a larger room or suite. It can be more effective if you declare you’re celebrating an important event, such as birthday, anniversary or are newly retired.

Some hotel chains regularly offer senior discounts, including Best Western, Choice Hotels, Comfort Inn, Crowne Plaza, Hyatt, La Quinta, Marriott, Omni Hotels and Resorts, Red Roof Inns and Wyndham Hotel Group.
