Do Some Research
As a companion option for calling the hotel directly, it is important to do some research in local hotels in order to secure the best price possible. By looking up the price of local hotels, it gives some price comparison points to negotiate with. It is important though to know what hotels are not connected to one another. Some chains are run by the same parent company, so attempting to bring down a hotel price when using a sibling hotel as a price example is not going go work. However, by using a competitors hotel cost as an example, it does make it easier to bring down the price.
