Citi Prestige 4th Night Free
I’d like to get this card at some point but haven’t ever used their concierge service, although I hear it’s pretty easy. My question is… does it work for government rates?
I don’t believe so. I think you have to go through the Citi concierge and use the rates they have. You can’t use corporate or government rates. Someone please correct me if I’m wrong.
It only works on whatever rate the concierge can book, whether they use their system or they book directly on the hotel’s website for you. It just has to be an advertised rate on the hotel’s website. If the hotel/chain is running a promotion, then the concierge can book it and stack it (assuming the hotel promo isnt a 4th night free). I dont think a government rate will work since it’s not advertised on their website, but it cant hurt to try asking about it.
You can use corporate rates, AAA rates, etc., but generally not government rates.
