Feel confident knowing that you will always get the best available rate at the Plaza Inn. If you do find a lower published rate prior to, or within 24 hours of, booking your room, simply submit a Best Rate Guarantee Claim to us and we'll honor the lower rate. We'll also give you an additional 10% discount Guaranteed.
Terms & Conditions
Inn guarantees that Plaza Inn-branded websites will have the best room rate for any Plaza Inn branded hotel ("Best Rate Guarantee"). This guarantee applies to reservations for guest rooms at any Plaza Inn-branded hotel. For a claim to be valid under this guarantee, it must satisfy all Terms and Conditions and be submitted in compliance with the Claims Processing procedures.
If you find and advise Plaza Inn of a lower, published, available room rate for the same hotel, for the same room type and bed type, and for the same dates and number of guests (the "Competing Rate"), prior to, or within 24 hours after, making a reservation on a Plaza Inn-branded Website, Plaza Inn will honor the Competing Rate, along with your choice of one best rate guarantee reward. The Best Rate Guarantee Rewards available are (1) an additional twenty percent (20%) discount off the Competing Rate or
The Best Rate Guarantee does not apply to taxes, gratuities, or any additional resort or guest charges or fees that may apply at Plaza Inns.
Available Room Types
The Best Rate Guarantee applies to a competing room type that is substantially similar to a room type that can be booked on a Plaza Inn-branded Website. Competing room types have features that include, but are not limited to, similar views, amenities, bedding, and room size as determined by Plaza Inn in its sole discretion ("Competing Room"). If the Plaza Inn-branded Websites do not have a substantially similar room type to the Competing Room, Plaza Inn, in its sole discretion, may honor the rate for the Competing Room with applicable rate limitations, plus a Best Rate Guarantee Reward, provided such meets all other Terms and Conditions.
In the event that the Competing Rate is in a different currency from the Plaza Inn rate, the Customer Care Associate will convert the Competing Rate into the same currency as the rate offered on the Plaza Inn-branded Website. The currency exchange rate to be applied will be based on the exchange rate at the time of making the original reservation. After converting the Competing Rate, Plaza Inn reserves the right to deny a claim where the Competing Rate appears lower than the Plaza Inn rate if it deems that the difference between the rates is due to, but not limited to, different currency exchange rates used by the two rate providers.
Multiple Night Stay
In the event of a multiple night stay, the Best Rate Guarantee will compare the total room cost of the stay as booked at the Plaza Inn Rate with the total room cost of the stay booked at a Competing Rate.
Multiple claims for a stay consisting of two or more consecutive nights at the same hotel will be treated as one claim for one stay and the Best Rate Guarantee will be applied to that one stay.
The Best Rate Guarantee does NOT apply to any rates from opaque providers including, but not limited to, Priceline.com or Hotwire.com. An opaque provider is any entity or service that prevents the buyer from obtaining information relating to available hotel rooms until after the buyer has guaranteed payment ("Opaque Provider"). A site is opaque if it does not divulge any of the following points; (a) the name of the property on which the available hotel room is located, (b) the precise location of the property on which the available hotel room is located, (c) the identity, brand or flag affiliation of the hotel that will provide such available room, and (d) other specific information that may divulge the property's identity (e.g., exact property restaurant name).
The Best Rate Guarantee does NOT apply to packaged rates. Packaged rates include...
- Hotel accommodations sold as part of a travel package, in which the property does not provide the extra service, including, but not limited to accommodations plus airfare and/or car rental and/or cruise, as offered on sites such as Expedia.com. Orbitz.com or Travelocity.com and site59.com.
- Hotel accommodations sold with value added amenities, including, but not limited to, free breakfast and hotel parking
The Best Rate Guarantee applies to a Competing Rate with rate limitations that are substantially similar to the rate limitations of the rate that can be booked on a Plaza Inn-branded Website (the "Plaza Inn Rate"). Rate limitations include, but are not limited to, advance purchase requirements, prepayment and deposit requirements, and cancellation and change policies. If there is no Plaza Inn Rate available that has substantially similar rate rules to that of the Competing Rate, and the Competing Rate is lower than any available Plaza Inn Rate, Plaza Inn, in its sole discretion, may honor the Competing Rate with the applicable Plaza Inn Rate Limitations, room type, and amenities plus a Best Rate Guarantee Reward, provided it meets all other Terms and Conditions.
The Best Rate Guarantee does NOT apply to unpublished rates. Unpublished rates are rates not available to the general public. Rates not available to the general public include, but are not limited to:
- Corporate discount rates
- Group rates
- Meeting rates
- Any rates requiring membership in a club such as AAA rates or AARP rates, affinity program, or other organization where the rates are targeted specifically toward a specific group of individuals and not intended for the general public.
- Direct mail solicitations
- Electronic mail solicitations
Plaza Inn Customer Care Associates have the sole right and discretion to determine the validity of any claim, including, but not limited to, determining that the claim is for the same hotel, room type, dates, and that it meets all Terms and Conditions, and Claims Processing requirements.
A claim must be submitted prior to, or within 24 hours after, making a reservation through a Plaza Inn-branded Website, and 24 hours before scheduled arrival. If the original reservation was made within 24 hours of arrival, the Best Rate Guarantee is not applicable. For non-English websites, 48 hours prior to arrival is required for claim processing. An original reservation refers to the initial reservation made through a Plaza Inn-branded Website and does not include modified or cancelled reservations.
The Plaza Inn Best Rate Guarantee does not apply to existing reservations booked through a Competing Room provider. If a reservation is booked through a Competing Room provider, Plaza Inn is not responsible for any fees associated with the cancellation of that reservation.
For quicker Best Rate Guarantee processing, it is recommended that you make a reservation through a Plaza Inn-branded Website prior to filing the claim.
