    Have any University's out there developed partnerships with hotels or B&B's, and if so, how was that partnership structured? Were they permitted to use institutional logos? Was there a benefit structure in place? Any info would be very appreciated. Thanks, all!

    We have a partnership with a hotel that is located near campus. We sign a contract with them every year that covers the discounted rate that the university gets as well as 5 free nights that usually are allotted to the President's office for special guests or Commencement. The hotel is also a sponsor for our Athletic teams so they wear buttons on game days and have Willamette logos and announcements on their electronic marketing boards in the lobby. Most of the hotel use is for visiting candidates during the interview process and parents and visitors that are attending athletic events or other major events on campus. We have had this longstanding relationship for many years and it has worked well for us and them.

    Arcadia has partnerships with 2 local hotels.  Both give the University discounted rates for guests of the University.  One also gives Arcadia one free night for each 15 bookings.

    We have negotiated rates with about two dozen local hotels and these rates are negotiated annually for each calendar year.

    A number of the hotels offer rewards - eg. a free hotel night for x number of nights booked through our link/code. I typically use these freebies as raffle prizes for staff/student events.
