If you find a rate on a competing website that is lower than the lowest rate shown on the official The Central website, The Central will honor that rate for the nights for which the lower rate was found, plus give you an additional 10% discount off the lower rate found upon its verification by The Central Hotel & Conference Center.

For the purpose of the Lowest Internet Rate Guarantee, a competing website is defined as a web site that is not owned by The Central Hotel & Conference Center .

Rooms on the other website must be publicly available, viewable and bookable on the Internet at the time of verification.

Lower rate found must be for the same type of accommodations and for the same dates.

If a lower rate is found on a third party website, or is lower due to the currency exchange rate and/or rounding applied on the third party website, the Guarantee does not apply.

Guarantee does not include rates that have been negotiated by the hotel with corporations, membership rates (e.g. AAA, Entertainment Card, Industry Rates), corporate rates, government rates, promotional rates or travel agency rates; only publicly available rates apply.

To use this Guarantee, you must advise the Central Hotel within 24 hours of booking your room by calling 717-561-2800 or by filling out the online Lowest Internet Rate Guarantee Form with your booking details.
