Whatare Choice HotelsFriends and Family Rates?
Friends and family rates do exist for employees of Choice Hotels,asbenefits for working for this chain include employee hotel discounts as well as ones for their relatives and friends:
Unfortunately for those who don't have any contacts in this hotel chain, they tend to remain very hidden from the masses.It could be because Choice Hotelsis a franchisor of more than 6,300 hotels, with eachhotel allowed to keep its independent identity, so it would make sense that there isn't a generic code to use across the board. There was one in the past, code00063699, but in more recent years this hasn't worked.If there is a current generic code, it must be one well-kept secret, as we couldn't find it anywhere!

Anotherstaff member in Phoenixstated that rates areconsiderably cheaper for employees and their families and friends, so it does seem that YMMV per property.
