BEST RATE GUARANTEE – GET YOUR FIRST NIGHT FREE


At Corinthia, we always strive to provide the best rates on our website. If you don’t think we have, we’ll pay for 100% of your room on the first night, and price match the rest. Should you find a lower price elsewhere, please submit a claim within 24 hours of your original booking and we will respond within two working days. Please note, this also applies to discounts and promotions available on Corinthia.com.

Process for making a claim:

Step 1. If within 24 hours of a confirmed reservation with Corinthia Hotels made on Corinthia.com, you find a lower rate for the same hotel, room type, inclusions, stay dates, discounts and payment conditions, please contact the relevant email address from the list below to make your claim. All claims must be made within 24 hours of the original booking and at least 24 hours prior to the standard check-in time of the hotel.

Step 2. Your claim should be supported by the URL where the lower rate was found and a screen shot which clearly displays the date of stay, room type, same hotel, inclusions and payment conditions of the lower rate offering on the competing website. Please include your contact information (name, email and phone number).

Step 3. If we are able to verify that the lower rate found qualifies for the Best Rate Guarantee, and all other terms and conditions are met, Corinthia Hotels will pay for 100% of the room charges of your first night, and will price match the room for the rest of your stay. You will be charged for all nights booked at the matched rate, minus the first night which will be free.

To make your claim, email the relevant hotel on one of the following:
bestrateguarantee.london@corinthia.com
bestrateguarantee.budapest@corinthia.com
bestrateguarantee.prague@corinthia.com
bestrateguarantee.stgeorges@corinthia.com

bestrateguarantee.lisbon@corinthia.com
bestrateguarantee.stpetersburg@corinthia.com
bestrateguarantee.khartoum@corinthia.com
bestrateguarantee.tripoli@corinthia.com

First night free, match rate for rest of stay, no minimum nights

Terms and Conditions:

Corinthia Hotels guarantees the best online rate on corinthia.com based on the following terms and conditions:

1. Your original booking must have been made through corinthia.com.
2. The lower rate must be found and the claim submitted by email within 24 hours of the original booking and at least 24 hours prior to the standard check-in time at the hotel. If the original booking was made within 24 hours of arrival, the Best Rate Guarantee is not applicable.
3. The Best Rate Guarantee only applies to published rates available to the general public online, which can be found and booked immediately without any kind of restriction or payment restrictions.
4. The lower rate found must be for exactly the same booking criteria - the same hotel, the same room type, same inclusions, the same stay dates, same number of guests, the same rate description and, if applicable, the same promotion. The cancellation and advance purchase policy and all other terms and conditions of the stay must also be identical. If the claim refers to a reservation consisting of several nights' accommodation, the average rate for each night will be compared to the average rate for each night, for an identical reservation, using the website where the lower rate is found.
5. Corinthia Hotels will verify the lower rate claim and respond within two working days of the claim being made. *Claims will be processed from Monday to Friday, between 9am to 5pm, at the hotel's local time.
6. The rate comparison will be made net of any taxes, gratuities or any other fees or charges associated with the room rate, and the lower rate must still be available at the time the hotel validates the claim.
7. The Best Rate Guarantee is void where prohibited by law. Corinthia Hotels reserves the right to modify or cancel its Best Rate Guarantee policy at any time in its sole discretion and without prior notice.
8. Corinthia Hotels has the sole right and discretion to determine the validity of any claim, including without limitation, determining that the lower rate found is genuinely available and that the claim meets all terms and conditions. In case of dispute, Corinthia Hotels' decision is final.
9. In the case of a fully prepaid rate booked through corinthia.com, Corinthia Hotels will refund the difference to your credit card, if applicable, within 30 business days of submitting your claim. Corinthia Hotels is not responsible for any fees associated with cancelling a reservation made through a different channel.
10. Best Rate Guarantee will be suspended during times where corinthia.com or certain rates are not available due to an outage, a technical issue or a circumstance beyond Corinthia Hotels' reasonable control.
11. The Best Rate Guarantee does not apply to rates found offline, negotiated corporate rates, group or MICE rates, opaque provider rates or rates requiring membership in a club or other organization, governmental rates, direct mail or email solicitations, rates offered by providers that do not supply the name or location of the hotel until after a reservation has been made or other rates that are not available to the general public. We reserve the right to deny a claim if the availability of the Competing Rate cannot be independently verified at the time of processing the claim.
12. The Best Rate Guarantee does not apply to packaged rates. Packaged rates include Hotel accommodations sold as part of a travel package in which the Hotel does not provide all services (including but not limited to airfare and/or car rental, tours etc.) and Hotel accommodations sold with additional amenities.
13. Corinthia Hotels may deny a claim where the difference between the rates is less than 1%.
14. If the Competing Rate is in a different currency from the rate booked on corinthia.com, the Competing Rate will be converted into the same currency as the rate offered on our website using the exchange rate as published in www.xe.com in place at the time the initial reservation was made. Discrepancies may occur between Corinthia Hotels' rate and the Competing Rate due to differences in exchange rate sources. If the rate discrepancy is solely due to exchange rate fluctuations, we reserve the right to deny the claim.

Whether the question’s been popped, or your looking for the perfect ring to accompany your proposal, these are the best Lisbon jewellery shops to help you find it

The Portuguese capital may not be famed as one of Europe’s great shopping cities, but when it comes to jewellery shops, it punches well above its weight. Nestled amid the shopping districts of Bairro Alto and Baixa or planted grandly on the Avenida da Liberdade are jewellery shops of varying vintage, specialism, and price range. Add to this Lisbon’s charming sense of old world romance and you have a city high on amour but refreshingly low on cliché. In short, the perfect place to make that all-important purchase. From classic international brands such as Cartier and Piaget to individual and sought-after Portuguese designs courtesy of Leitão & Irmão, if your heart’s set on tracing down the perfect engagement ring, here are the best Lisbon jewellery shops to help you find it.

Anselmo 1910 at the Amoreiras Shopping Center

After a century in the Lisbon jewellery trade, Anselmo 1910 remains a family business – and a thriving one at that. This Portuguese jewellery institution has two branches in Lisbon, one in the upmarket and iconic Amoreiras Shopping Center on the Avenida Duarte Pacheco, the other in the Centro Columbo in the Avenue Lusada. If you’re looking for the prestige that comes with luxury international brands, Anselmo 1910 is the registered stockist of numerous big names, most notably, the Swiss engagement ring specialists Piaget.

Boutique Cartier

The Avenida Liberdade is Lisbon’s designer shopping stretch, where high-end stores, from Armani to Zegna, line the broad, leafy streets. Unsurprisingly, this is where the renowned French jeweller is located – and Boutique Cartier’s premises are fittingly opulent. The service is, of course, excellent, and here you can choose a ring from Cartier’s nine different engagement and wedding collections of varying styles. Do you want white gold? Yellow gold? Pink gold? All three? For the exclusive touch, you can have your solitaire made to your own specification.

Joalharia Ferreira Marques

In contrast, over in the Baixa district, retro-fronted jewellery stores ply their trade with the honed service you’d expect from decades in the business. You certainly sense that the famous Joalharia Ferreira Marque has barely changed throughout its lifetime. Indeed, a shot of its façade, looking exactly as it does now, was featured in the 1969 Bond film On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. What was 007 doing at Joalharia Ferreira Marques? Buying a wedding ring, of course. Nowadays, engagement rings from international manufacturers nestle side-by-side with more unique, Portuguese-made designs in a stock that’s frequently changing.

Joalharia do Carmo

The 1920s frontage of Joalharia do Carmo certainly has curbside appeal, with its giant crest and sweeping lines. Accentuating the sense of history is the fact that this Lisbon jewellery shop has remained in the same family since it was founded. Once granted entry, shoppers are greeted with a wealth of handmade pieces, most notably filigree pieces in silver – the shop’s specialism. While it may not be known for its engagement rings, the vintage style of much of the jewellery on offer means the chances of discovering something special are high.

Leitão & Irmão

Originally founded in Porto in 1822, it wasn’t until Leitão & Irmão was made Crown Jewellers to the Portuguese Royal Family in 1887 that it set up shop in Lisbon. Their illustrious legacy continues today through their traditional Portuguese manufacturing techniques and procedures – although their modern designs are anything but old-fashioned. Famed for their bespoke and customised jewellery creations (their Bairro Alto-based goldsmith workshop is the oldest in the city) this if the place to come to if you want your engagement ring to be something truly unique – as well as something truly Lisbon.
