I do not qualify for senior rates, but my wife will be travelling with me and she does qualify. Can I use my account to book a senior rate room? If not, can we combine our points if she gets her own Rewards account?
My experience is no. I recently booked a senior rate when traveling with my mother. When I checked in, I was told the name had to be under the senior's name/account. They let me keep the rate but informed me that I shouldn't book a senior rate under my account in the future.
I've had the opposite experience. I've booked the senior rate when traveling with my mother and never had a problem. While it's not something I've done often, it has come in handy once or twice.
My assumption is that you are not supposed to, but the level of enforcement varies by hotel. Please let me know if I am wrong. I've found the senior rate isn't always the best rate, but it would be a nice option to check out when traveling with a senior.
I've never had trouble reserving with AAA/CAA rate, while my gf holds the CAA membership. We've never had any issues with this (I don't book CAA rate when travelling alone though).As long as you both stay in the same room, I don't see an issue.
I have booked at the senior rate for years and never once has the front desk asked for proof of age.
imho as long as either you or your wife meets the age criterion, it shouldn't be an issue.
