5 Reasons Companies Choose CLC Lodging vs. The Other Guys

Apr 25, 2023 | News

Over 1.2 million travelers rely on CLC Lodging, America’s workforce lodging leader, for comprehensive travel management solutions. You might be wondering, though — what really makes CLC Lodging different from our competitors? Let’s break it down.

1. Deeply discounted hotel rates.

There’s a reason that our customers book and stay almost 19 million nights annually: When compared with our competitors, CLC Lodging Network Hotels typically offer lower rates for hotel reservations. We negotiate great rates with individual hotels, so our customers save on hotel reservations, with best-in-class every day savings upfront and a Rate Match Guarantee.

2. More booking flexibility.

We get it — plans change, all the time. That’s why we offer a number of flexible booking policies, including no minimum usage fees or costs to join, zero prepayments for CLC Network hotels, and the ability for walk-ins with the CLC card when time doesn’t permit making a reservation. CLC Lodging members also benefit from flexible cancellation policies.

That’s not all. Our members also have access to four ways to book:

  • Online, through our web-based hotel search
  • With the CLC Lodging Hotel Locator Mobile App, which can be downloaded on the Apple App or Google Play Store
  • By calling our US-based reservation team, which is available for traveler support 24/7/365
  • Walking in or directly calling approved hotels in the CLC Network

And if your company needs lodging for longer stays, our corporate apartments team can find the perfect housing for project-based programs staying 30+ nights. Our apartments include move-in ready, fully-furnished housing with activated utilities so your team members have a comfortable place to stay after a long day of work.

3. Comprehensive, simplified lodging management.

A CLC Lodging membership includes custom reporting and consolidated, audited billing. Our lodging management portal allows users to gain total insight into their lodging spend, view hotel usage and reservation activity, and break down reports by dates, locations, divisions and projects. Our members improve their lodging programs over time by customizing their program to control costs as they track, analyze, and improve every aspect of lodging. 

As company travel volume increases, so does the complexity of their travel program. For companies that need more travel management support and customizations to scale, we offer full-service lodging management. Members with complex project and extended-stay programs can outsource their lodging program to CLC Lodging experts and we’ll handle reservations, travel policy adherence, and consolidate your billing and lodging reporting.

4. Even more expense solutions.

Along with tools and insights to control lodging costs, CLC Lodging offers innovative payment solutions, including the CLC Trip Card and CheckINN+ Card. With the Trip Card, our virtual per diem solution, companies can load a fixed amount onto a virtual card for travelers to use on meals, fuel, or other travel-related expenses within a specific timeframe. The CheckINN+ Card has all of the standard features as our membership card with an added Mastercard, which can be used as a payment solution for travel expenses.

5. Ability to book transportation. 

In addition to low hotel rates, CLC members can use our streamlined travel management portal to make flight and rental car reservations for their next trip. Book every part of your employee travel in one place to make managing workforce travel simpler than ever. Plus, when you add transportation, you can view all reservation details in a single trip on CLC’s portal.
