Half price is only based on store price

  According to media reports, a family of 13 from Chengdu Xu Feng (pseudonym) were stranded in Sanya due to the epidemic. They lived in the well-known resort hotel, Mandarin Oriental, in Sanya. The room rate per room per night was 5,000 yuan.

After the stay, Mandarin Oriental, Sanya agreed to renew the stay at half the price of the previous reservation in accordance with government regulations, that is, 2,500 yuan per room per night.

  However, a reporter from Sino-Singapore Jingwei noticed that the reservation price of this room type on the Ctrip platform is 3,300 yuan. If it is half price, the actual price paid at the store is only 1,650 yuan.

In this regard, the above-mentioned front desk staff said, "We are paying half the price according to the store price. We do not know the price of Ctrip. You need to ask Ctrip whether 3,300 yuan is half price."

  Ctrip's customer service said that 3,300 yuan is the preferential price for cooperation between the platform and the hotel. It is the full price, not the half price at the front desk. How to implement the half price in the hotel is subject to what the hotel says.

  However, according to the regulations of Sanya City, tourists will be given a half-price discount based on the price of the original hotel for their continued stay, and new tourists will be given a half-price discount based on the lowest price announced on Ctrip's official website.

He told a reporter from Sino-Singapore Jingwei that on August 7, the price of the room with a sea view king bed that he continued to live in was 1,296 yuan on that day, and he enjoyed the half-price occupancy policy stipulated by the government.

  However, according to the Ctrip platform, the price of the same room type that Mr. Lu stayed in was 2,548 yuan, and the half-price price should be 1,274 yuan.

Why is the actual price of continued stay higher than 22 yuan, the hotel staff explained, "Half price is discounted on the basis of the official website price."

  Mr. Zhao revealed that at present, he can still stay at the price of 145 yuan per night before the price increase, but he cannot enjoy the half-price renewal policy.

But as far as I know, I stayed at the price after the price increase. Tourists can enjoy the half-price stay policy." Mr. Zhao said.
