Hate Waiting? Citi Has Made Improvements to Cut Hold Times When You Want to Book a Hotel Stay With Your Citi Prestige Card

Some folks didn’t like the process of booking their hotel stays through the Citi Travel Concierge.  Previously, Citi would connect you to a 3rd-party service who’d take down your information and call or email you back within a day or two.

But now, when you call to book, there’s no more waiting.  Perfect if you’re impatient like I am (although meditation helps a lot!).

Booking directly cuts out phone transfers, long holds, and having to wait for an email reply or phone call to book your room.

So you can take advantage of this perk – the 4th night free on paid hotel stays – even faster than before.  That saves you time and money!

Perfect for a last-minute getaway, perhaps to 1 of our country’s beautiful National Parks!

Link:   My Review of the Citi Prestige

The Citi Prestige has an excellent sign-up bonus of 50,000 Citi ThankYou points after you spend $3,000 on purchases in the 1st 3 months of opening your account, worth $800 toward flights on American Airlines or 1 of its codeshare partners for international travel. (EXPIRED.)

Along with other terrific perks, you’ll also get the 4th night free on paid hotel stays when you book through the Citi Travel Concierge.

Get the 4th Night Free and Stay Longer on Your Beach Vacation With Citi Prestige! Plus Enjoy an Annual $250 Airline Credit, 3 Free Rounds of Golf, and Many Other Awesome Perks

And it can be at any hotel that can be booked by their travel agency, Carlson Wagonlit.  This includes most chain hotels and lots of boutique hotels in places all over the world!

There’s NO limit to the number of times you can use this benefit.  And you’ll receive points, stay credits, and elite status perks at the hotel, just as you would if you booked directly!

You can also save on airfare with the $250 annual airline fee credit.  And golfers get 3 (or more) free rounds of golf per year through July 23, 2017.

The annual fee is $450 (not waived the 1st year), but the benefits can far outweigh the annual fee.  That’s why thrifty folks like me don’t mind paying it!

Bottom Line

Citi has improved the hotel booking process for folks with the Citi Prestige.

Now, you book directly with Citi Travel Concierge instead of a 3rd-party service.  That saves you time and makes it easier to enjoy the 4th night free on paid hotel stays, 1 of the best deals in travel.

I’m always glad to see positive improvements, especially to a card with so many other great features!

@John – My understanding is you can book 2 rooms at the same hotel for the same dates. But you’ll only get the 4th night free on 1 of them.

I am booking two rooms at a hotel for my family. Two separate reservations, each 4 nights each and each in my name, but of course the dates will be the same for each. Can I get the 4th night free on each room?

@Scott – Thanks for keeping us in mind. And for reading! 🙂

Let me know your experiences. I’d love to hear about them!

@Zac – Hmmm, that sounds odd. Perhaps if had something to do with the changeover? If the rate you booked is still available, maybe you could try to cancel and re-book to be on the safe side.

If Hilton confirms your reservation, that’s the most important part. Citi can always credit you retroactively if they genuinely made an error. But I’d recommend trying a fresh booking if you can.

And if you can’t, I wouldn’t worry about it much if it’s showing up on Hilton’s side.

Hope that helps. Thanks for reading, Zac! 🙂

DT – They should be able to match any publicly available rates. And unfortunately, they can go up or down a lot in a few days. 🙁

Hope you can find a good price for your stay!

I got a quote from CWV via Concierge last Fri, attempted to book on Mon, only to find out they switched to Aspire Lifestyle with a much higher rate than the first quote I received from CWV. I was very upset.

Love your blog. Learned so much from you. Question on this topic, I recently called them and booked a Hilton stay and added my HHonors account. Reservation showed up in my Hilton account immediately but I never received an email confirmation from Citi Concierge. They used to email a PDF of the booking with language confirming the fourth night credit I will receive. I called back and a different representative said she cannot find record of my booking in their system. In that case should I make a new booking to make sure I do get the fourth night free? Thanks a lot.
