How HotelPlanner.com works:Simply input how many rooms you need, the destination, and desired price-range per room here. HotelPlanner takes it from there and submits your information to hotels who will bid for your business. You’ll receive emails instantly each time a new hotel submits an offer for your group. HotelPlanner works with all the major hotels like Marriott, Hilton, Wyndham, Omni, Intercontinental, and Starwood, and we’ve seen rates as low as $20-$25 per night, per room (up to 70% off regular rates). You can negotiate better rates during the bidding process by declining to accept a bid. When you decline a bid, the hotel is notified and may choose to bid a cheaper nightly rate to earn your business. You’ll be assigned a HotelPlanner account representative that will oversee the whole booking process and make sure that you get the right type of hotel for your event. Their service is so much easier than calling around to get quotes for your group, so it’s an extreme time saver. As the coordinator, you’ll reserve a block of rooms for your guests, and everyone in your group is able to pay for their room separately. This makes it super easy for you, so you don’t need to collect money or worry about who hasn’t paid. What’s really great is that group coordinators get their room for free at participating hotels. Your account representative can also nail down discount rates on airfare, car rentals, and meeting spaces for your group.
Hotel Planner’s Guarantee:They guarantee that they will match or beat any competitor’s price when you book at least 10 rooms. The guarantee covers hotels that are “equal or greater quality”, so it does not need to be the exact same hotel.
