I got carded at the Marriott Magnificent Mile in Chicago. Funnily enough it turns out the base rate was cheaper than the corporate rate anyways ha

Just looked the jw up...yes nicer than that

Since I frequently work with all sorts of B4/MBB companies in partnerships on projects, in the few times they've asked I just mention I'm subcontracting with them and offer to show them the emails. Never have they asked me to pull out a laptop to get it. I think just knowing I'm willing has worked.

That’s exactly what I say every time but the two times I was “carded” they asked me to show them the emails in which I responded I don’t have my laptop at the moment and they said ok, well keep you on the standard rate but will gladly change it once you show us the emails. You’re not doing/saying anything special. It works most of the time but a select few properties are just really anal about this.

That is why after your rotation through the firms, you keep you business cards from each.

Good tip on the GDY. Just booked a few on that code. Let’s see.
Often book the better of our code, DTC or IBM, and never have been checked. The only time I was was when I used the government rate.

Just got carded for the first time at a Marriott (in Seattle for reference). Guy said to expect to be asked a lot more going forward - they’ve been instructed to start checking IDs for corp rates.

just that location or companywide?

My EY ID doesn’t actually say the name of my firm on it. Have used occasionally, but it scares me. St Regis NY definitely has started cracking down

I think the whole thing is ironic - regardless of the firm you work at, most of us are spending significant $$ at the chain

I was once carded at the Residence Inn in Vancouver during an exceptionally busy weekend when everything was pricey and booked and I was on a very competitive corp rate. Other than that, close to 1000 nights, never been carded.

You never prove it. U just tell them you’re contracted to work with them and they never usually say anything. When they ask you to prove it, that’s when you’re shit out of luck but it rarely happens

That is not how volume based discounts work. Deloitte must be spending more than Oliver Wyman so Deloitte gets more discounts. Most of the consultants here stay at Marriott.

I got carded at the Westin River North in Chicago

Not abbreviated. (Damn this is killing me, why can’t I find it on the Google?)

What does carded mean? Is this showing your business card?

Yes

It’s in the middle of the night so the perfect opportunity to share my story. I was diagnosed with MSH6 Lynch Syndrome in 2017. In order to be proactive I decided to get a full hysterectomy 3 years ago. Because of this I was forced into surgical menopause. I started on Estradiol patches for awhile then moved to a topical cream now am on the pills. Initially Premarin but due to increasing prices I’m back on Estradiol. I don’t sleep very well, still get hot flashes, and experience highs & lows.
