Choice Hotels to offer rate discounts for loyalty-program members

Comfort Suites Houston

Choice Hotels International is joining the direct-bookings push in the form of its own members-only rate.

The discounted rates are accessible on bookings made through ChoiceHotels.com and the company's mobile app. The option is going to be made available later this summer to all Choice Privileges members, but only on direct bookings. This is similar to recent offerings made available by Hilton, Hyatt and Marriott, and the trend shows no sign of stopping.

According to a release from Choice, the rates will reflect the company's "best price guarantee," and is designed to angle the gaze of guests back to  Choice for direct bookings.
