It depends on the specific hotel and other events in the area. Had some friends get busted for it during a PGA tour event when rooms were scarce.

For some international properties they may check. I had to call a property in Tokyo before checking in and they told me to make sure i had my company id

The only time I ever got checked was right before I ran into an old colleague as I was checking into the hotel. He asked where I worked and it was a bit of an awkward conversation

I work at Deloitte and somehow my SPG profile and rate still said my former employer, PwC—I knew this because they invited me to some kind of PwC only reception the hotel was doing. I think for government rates they might check since those are absolute rock bottom rates, but if you look the part at check in, well personally I’ve never been asked for proof of working for Deloitte, PwC or any other company I worked for.

I had SPGs in Seattle ask to see a business card, work ID, etc.

Property specific. Been making good use of bcg and mck over the years 👌

They never check. Codes a available via quick google search

I just went to the bathroom in the United club lounge before heading to my gate.

Also no mask on. This is weird, right?
