Hi there!

Rack Rate

"Rack rate" refers to the standard retail price for a hotel room before any discounts or promotions are applied. It serves as the baseline price that a hotel sets for a particular room type, usually displayed on a rack card or brochure in the hotel lobby. While the rack rate represents the maximum price a guest would pay for a room, actual rates may vary depending on factors such as demand, seasonality, and negotiated discounts. The rack rate provides transparency to guests regarding the standard cost of accommodations and serves as a reference point for pricing strategies.
