The Carmen Hotel(“The Carmen Hotel”) will make available the best guest room price for the hotel (the “Best Price Guarantee”). “The Carmen Hotel Website” are the websites owned or operated by or on behalf of The Carmen Hotel bearing the logo and branding of The Carmen Hotel .
In the unlikely event that a lower price at The Carmen Hotel is made available on a non-The Carmen Hotel website (the “Competing Price”), upon its receipt of a claim that satisfies these Best Price Guarantee terms and conditions (the “BPG Terms”), The Carmen Hotel will honor that Competing Price and provide the individual that submitted the valid claim one of the following: (1) an additional 10% discount off the Competing Price per room per night; or (2) a voucher that the guest can use during their stay, the amount of the voucher will be equal to the difference between the original reservation rate and the competing price.

- Package prices (e.g., prices that include a combination of a room and airfare, an overnight cruise, car rental);
