Frequently Asked Questions
This is Quikbook.com's core service: individually negotiated discount rates at hand-picked boutique hotels in America's larger cities. This is what we do best.

Our praise-winning policies are designed to provide frequent travelers with the flexibility they need.
Quikbook.com partnered with Hotel Marketplace to offer you rates at hotels in even more destinations, including smaller US and International cities.

Hotel Marketplace agents can be reached at (877) 999-3112 for reservations or at (866) 270-2849 to charge or cancel existing reservations.
How does Quikbook.com determine which hotels to offer?
Quikbook.com represents a full range of hotels from 5-star hotels and resorts to boutiques, from business hotels to budget-priced properties. They range in size from 40 to 1,700 rooms. Quikbook.com selects boutique hotels that are well located near business, entertainment or transportation centers. Our goal is not to offer every boutique hotel in a market. Instead, we aim to offer a well-chosen selection of premier hotels that offer guests a range of options. The result is a more concise, pre-selected list of boutique hotels that simplify the booking process.
What does the term "Boutique" mean?
Here at Quikbook.com, we use the term "Boutique" to describe one of a kind hotels that differentiate themselves from larger chain hotels by providing more personalized accommodations. Our boutique hotels typically exude a unique style and ambiance and are usually furnished in a themed or distinctive manner. Boutique hotels generally have less total rooms than their chain counterparts.
What is Book Now. Pay Later?

What is Pre-Pay?

Making a Reservation
What is Quikbook.com’s lowest rate guarantee?
This guarantee applies to every hotel and every room offered by Quikbook.com. If, within 24 hours of making a Quikbook.com reservation, you find a lower total price for your entire stay at the same hotel in the same room type on the same dates, we'll match the rate. Visit our contact us page and provide the following information to verify the lower rate: The hotel's name, the date(s) of the stay, room type, the rate per night and the URL (web address) where this information was found. This guarantee does not apply to rates quoted on sites that let you bid for prices, or private sales with unpublished rates.
Does the Quikbook.com lowest rate guarantee apply to rooms booked through Hotel Marketplace?
No. If you can't find a hotel or destination you want at Quikbook.com, we recommend that you try Hotel Marketplace. This separate website offers 55,000 hotels worldwide at rates quoted by the hotels.

Do I qualify for hotel “frequent stay” points through my Quikbook.com reservation?
