August 8th, 2018


From December, several five-star Corinthia Hotels will be transformed into winter wonderlands so that guests can experience the best of Christmas food, drink and the festive spirit that pervades at this time of year.

Mulled wine, warming and nourishing spa treatments, late check-out, welcome gifts and pyrotechnics are among the treats that await guests when staying at Corinthia Hotels during the month of December. Here are the details of Christmas packages from four luxury Corinthia Hotels:

Corinthia Hotel Budapest: The Hungarian capital comes alive from mid November when the main Christmas market on Vorosmarty Square opens with over 100 wooden stalls and two outdoor stages for live entertainment. The hotel is offering The Great Festive Getaway Package from Euros145 per night which includes accommodation for two, breakfast, free room upgrade (subject to availability), entrance to the Royal Spa, free wifi and bottle of local champagne. Available for minimum two-night stays between 1st December 2018 to 31st January 2019. Rates are exclusive of VAT & City Tax.

Corinthia Hotel St George’s Bay, Malta: Mulled wine on arrival and a christmas gift when you reach your room are just two of the treats when booking the Christmas at Corinthia package at this lively resort hotel.

Corinthia Hotel Prague: The city centre hotel is taking full advantage of its vantage point high above one of the city’s hills to stage a New Year’s Eve event in the hotel’s Bellevue Hall on the 24th floor. This will give guests a bird’s eye view of the spectacular fireworks display from the River Vltava to see the New Year in while enjoying a complimentary drink and chill music. The pyrotechnics are also streamed onto a large screen in Bellevue Hall.

Downstairs in Lounge 62 on the ground floor is the venue for a festive banquet and live music, while the hotel’s other two restaurants – The Grill and Rickshaw – will offer a special New Year’s Eve menu.

BEST RATE GUARANTEE – GET YOUR FIRST NIGHT FREE

At Corinthia, we always strive to provide the best rates on our website. If you don’t think we have, we’ll pay for 100% of your room on the first night, and price match the rest.

Please note, this also applies to discounts and promotions available on Corinthia.com.

Process for making a claim:

All claims must be made within 24 hours of the original booking and at least 24 hours prior to the standard check-in time of the hotel.

Step 2. Your claim should be supported by the URL where the lower rate was found and a screen shot which clearly displays the date of stay, room type, same hotel, inclusions and payment conditions of the lower rate offering on the competing website. Please include your contact information (name, email and phone number).

Step 3. If we are able to verify that the lower rate found qualifies for the Best Rate Guarantee, and all other terms and conditions are met, Corinthia Hotels will pay for 100% of the room charges of your first night, and will price match the room for the rest of your stay.

1. Your original booking must have been made through corinthia.com.
2. The lower rate must be found and the claim submitted by email within 24 hours of the original booking and at least 24 hours prior to the standard check-in time at the hotel. If the original booking was made within 24 hours of arrival, the Best Rate Guarantee is not applicable.
3. The Best Rate Guarantee only applies to published rates available to the general public online, which can be found and booked immediately without any kind of restriction or payment restrictions.

The cancellation and advance purchase policy and all other terms and conditions of the stay must also be identical. If the claim refers to a reservation consisting of several nights' accommodation, the average rate for each night will be compared to the average rate for each night, for an identical reservation, using the website where the lower rate is found.
5. Corinthia Hotels will verify the lower rate claim and respond within two working days of the claim being made. *Claims will be processed from Monday to Friday, between 9am to 5pm, at the hotel's local time.
6. The rate comparison will be made net of any taxes, gratuities or any other fees or charges associated with the room rate, and the lower rate must still be available at the time the hotel validates the claim.
7. The Best Rate Guarantee is void where prohibited by law. Corinthia Hotels reserves the right to modify or cancel its Best Rate Guarantee policy at any time in its sole discretion and without prior notice.
8. Corinthia Hotels has the sole right and discretion to determine the validity of any claim, including without limitation, determining that the lower rate found is genuinely available and that the claim meets all terms and conditions. In case of dispute, Corinthia Hotels' decision is final.
9. In the case of a fully prepaid rate booked through corinthia.com, Corinthia Hotels will refund the difference to your credit card, if applicable, within 30 business days of submitting your claim. Corinthia Hotels is not responsible for any fees associated with cancelling a reservation made through a different channel.
10. Best Rate Guarantee will be suspended during times where corinthia.com or certain rates are not available due to an outage, a technical issue or a circumstance beyond Corinthia Hotels' reasonable control.
11. The Best Rate Guarantee does not apply to rates found offline, negotiated corporate rates, group or MICE rates, opaque provider rates or rates requiring membership in a club or other organization, governmental rates, direct mail or email solicitations, rates offered by providers that do not supply the name or location of the hotel until after a reservation has been made or other rates that are not available to the general public. We reserve the right to deny a claim if the availability of the Competing Rate cannot be independently verified at the time of processing the claim.
12. The Best Rate Guarantee does not apply to packaged rates. Packaged rates include Hotel accommodations sold as part of a travel package in which the Hotel does not provide all services (including but not limited to airfare and/or car rental, tours etc.) and Hotel accommodations sold with additional amenities.
13. Corinthia Hotels may deny a claim where the difference between the rates is less than 1%.
14. If the Competing Rate is in a different currency from the rate booked on corinthia.com, the Competing Rate will be converted into the same currency as the rate offered on our website using the exchange rate as published in www.xe.com in place at the time the initial reservation was made. Discrepancies may occur between Corinthia Hotels' rate and the Competing Rate due to differences in exchange rate sources. If the rate discrepancy is solely due to exchange rate fluctuations, we reserve the right to deny the claim.
