Relative to Manhattan, is $435 a reasonable hotel rate for firm travel? There are some cheaper options (Fairfield Inn and such), but would anyone bat an eye at this rate? I don’t travel often. 🤷‍♀️

Holy crap are you staying at a JW or something? That’s pretty high even for Manhattan.

P1 - don’t we have to book through Concur? The rate (with code) isn’t always the same as what’s on Concur.

still on the high end even for manhattan, especially if you are using a corp code

You’re a joke. I’d that’s the going rate, so be it. You’re not paying it. 15% of total fees is the general contracted price of expenses

That’s on the low end for sure. I’ve stayed at the st Regis when it’s at $700 a night and nobody bats an eye. You start getting into trouble at the 1000/ night rate

Team was billing $400-$600/night near Tribeca for an 8 week project - pretty normal. 🤷🏻‍♂️

There are so many hotel options in Manhattan that rates on average aren’t that much higher than other cities

Normal for Manhattan midtown. Leadership who would bat an eye at that either 1) are woefully misinformed or B) didn’t plan their economics correctly

It’s fine. Had to pay that is Boston suburb this week.

Check w peers or Corp travel. they often have an idea if a rate is compliant or not.

Book several hotels in the low to med 400s when in NYC. Ask the team where most folks have been staying and if it's a new engagement ask the others where they plan to book

if it's in policy, it's in policy. the end.

Not true - essentially every Marriott property is in policy, I would be so angry at my team if they were staying at the in policy $1k Ritz. That’s a real good way to piss off a client and get fired

Been on a project and Manhattan for 6 months now - that is the normal going rate. Lean on the engagement manager to let you know any budget constraints
