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

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.

From lively vinho verde to full-bodied Port, Portugal is home to some incredible wines. Just north of Lisbon, the Lisboa wine region stretches up northwards along the coast. Influenced by the Atlantic winds, steep slopes and clay soils, the region’s wines are elegant, with distinct personality. Here’s our guide to the best Lisboa wines, and where to try them.

KNOW YOUR WINES

Over twenty types of grapes are grown across Lisboa; in fact, it’s the region that produces the most wine in Portugal. There are nine sub-regions and DOC (Denominação de Origem Controlada, Portugal’s highest wine classification) wine types:

Alenquer: A tannin-rich red wine made with Castelão, Alfrocheiro, Aragonês (Tempranillo) and Touriga Nacional grapes.

Arruda: Light, fruity red wines that include international grape varieties like Syrah or Cabernet Sauvignon. Arruda produces Doña Blanca and Fernão Pires white grapes too.

Bucelas: Dry, light-bodied, citrusy white wines made with the Arinto grape. They’re very good after 4+ years of aging.

Colares: Made from grapes grown in sandy soil near the coastal cliffs, this is an unusual wine. Golden coloured, full-bodied and made with Malvasia Fina.

Óbidos and Lourinhã: Light-bodied, fragrant white wines made from Fernão Pires grapes.

Torres Vedras: Easy drinking, refreshing white wines that are low in alcohol.

WONDERFUL WINERIES

For an immersive Lisboa wine experience, head out to the countryside and visit one of these wineries.

A stunning contemporary winery, the high-tech AdegaMãe eschews tradition in favour of innovation. You can see the entire creation process of their six wines, from presses to fermentation to peeking inside their laboratory. Just 30 minutes from Lisbon, the historic family estate of Quinta de Sant’Ana produces Pinot Noir, Branco, Tinto, Alvarinho and Merlot. Their excellent wine tastings are accompanied by local delicacies.

The former estate of the marquis of Pombal, Quinta do Gradil sits in the foothills of the gorgeous Serra de Montejunto. It produces three wine ranges (affordable to premium), along with a quality brandy. Visit to explore the vineyards, cellar and tasting room.

WHAT TO TRY

As the largest wine producing region in Lisbon, Lisboa does easily quaffable, crowd-pleasing wines in abundance. To sample its finest drops, however, seek out complex, dense and aromatic Alenquer reds. The sub-region is warmer and less windy, allowing the grapes to fully ripen. If you’re looking for white wines, Arinto grape wines from Bucelas are superior quality; famously aromatic, with citrus and tropical fruit notes. Sharing similar terroir to Champagne, Óbidos produces the best sparkling wine in Portugal.

WHERE TO BUY

In Lisbon, the best showcase can be found at Garrafeira Nacional. Founded in 1921, it’s a cavernous emporium in Barrio Alto, and an oenophile’s paradise. You can pick up a 1934 Colares red or a 2015 Arinto. They ship internationally, too. Napoleão is a family-run chain that specialises in the finest wines, spirits and gourmet food products too. You’ll find seven scattered across Lisbon. Peruse their aisles of Arrudas and Bucelas, and get some Azeitao cheese to enjoy alongside.
