Full Answer

Many hotels offer senior discounts, but with an age minimum of 60 or 62. However, senior discounts are often available for anyone who meets the age minimum or for members of a retired persons organization, such as the American Association of Retired Persons. Anyone age 50 or older can join the AARP, but it does carry a yearly fee.

Besides discounts, hotels may offer seniors other amenities, such as an earlier check in time, a later check out time, a complimentary room upgrade or a free meal. Common senior discount amounts are 5 or 10 percent. To book a hotel room in advance using a senior discount, a person may have to call the hotel, use a discount code online or simply select the senior rate online. Proof of age or AARP membership is typically required at check in to validate a senior discount. Depending on the hotel, a senior discount may or may not be able to combine with other room discounts. Blackout dates may apply.
