- Under search enter the country, city, state, arrival, departure dates, and number of guests, bed type, and special requests and click on Find Hotel.
- This will result in a geographic display of the city and state you have selected. Scroll down and you will see a brief description of each property in that geographic area and rate ranges for that location- these rate ranges include the SkillsUSA discount.
- The SkillsUSA MMA (Mid Market Account) rates will usually be displayed first (unless the hotel is offering an advance purchase rate which will charge the entire reservation booking in advance and does not offer a refund policy). The SkillsUSA discounted rate is calculated off the hotels Best Flexible Rate Structure (which is set to maximize hotel occupancy based industry standards of past performance, group demand, etc). As a result of this system, if you visit a specific location frequently you may see that your rate fluctuates based upon these different factors.
- Last step—select your location and preference choices, secure the reservation with a credit card and receive a confirmation number.
