How to Get Free and Discounted Nights With Choice Hotels Best Internet Rate Guarantee

Did you know you can get free or discounted hotel stays by submitting best rate guarantee claims with some of the major hotel chains?

Choice Hotels is 1 of 2 hotel chains (the other being IHG) that offer a free night as part of their Best Internet Rate Guarantee.  After you’ve booked your room on choicehotels.com, if you find the same hotel and the same type of room for the same dates at a lower price online, Choice Hotels will give you the 1st night free and match the lower rate for the rest of your stay.

This means that for a 1-night booking, the whole stay is free!
