Hotel Prices/Policies During Upcoming Ryder Cup Golf Tournament in MSP
The Ryder Cup Golf Tournament will be in Minneapolis/St. Paul on September 27, 2016 through October 2, 2016. Many local hotels have instituted minimum stay requirements, are requiring deposits, and/or are modifying their rates to be non-refundable and non-changeable. We are seeing these new rates and requirements on reservations beginning several weeks prior to the tournament.
These new requirements can potentially put these hotels in violation of company Travel Policy. Thus, if travelers are making the hotel reservation through an online booking tool (i.e., Concur, NuTravel, etc.) they will see a big red exclamation point [!] in the booking area and they will not be allowed to reserve or even view the hotel rates. Additionally, company preferred negotiated rates are not honored during this timeframe due to “special event” language within in the contract.
As always, contact Travel One Account Manager or Consultant at 952-854-2551 or 1-800-247-1311 for the most current travel information.
