Mission: WSCA-NASPO Lodging was created to achieve two objectives. First, to ensure State and political subdivision employees are able to find lodging facilities that will honor GSA per-diem rates for their stay. Second, for the States to gather their travel spend. WSCA-NASPO Lodging contains a searchable database that will provide travelers a list of properties for their travel and will also gather all of the search information. When searching for lodging, please complete all the fields accurately. WSCA will keep track of the search results in hopes of leveraging the spend to achieve further savings.
Extension of existing in-state lodging programs: WSCA-NASPO Lodging is meant to be an extension of in-state travel qualified lodging lists. In-state lists may have a more comprehensive list that caters to the needs of that State. If traveling within your state, travelers should check any existing in-state list. If traveling out of your home state, travelers should use WSCA Lodging to search for lodging accommodations.
Pricing: Properties participating in WSCA-NASPO Lodging must offer at or below GSA per-diem rates for State and Political subdivision employees.
Fees: Properties shall not charge Participant Travelers the following fees:
- Change/Cancellation Fee if change or cancellation is received prior to 4:00 PM the day of check-in
- Booking, Deposit or Reservation Fee
- Short notice reservation fee
- Early Departure Fee
- Flat City Tax (State and local room taxes exempt from this tax)
- Parking fee when staying with no vehicle
- Resort fees
- Energy fees
Since this is a qualification program, a WSCA-NASPO Master Agreement is not needed and no Participating Addendum is required to be signed.
Booking a room: To book a room, contact your contracted travel agency if required by your state's policy or book online using WSCA-NASPO Travel Center. You may also book directly with the hotel, however you will need to provide them the appropriate corporate ID number. Corporate ID Numbers are located at the WSCA-NASPO Travel Center under the hotel tab.
Checking In: Travelers checking in at the hotel will need to produce verification of being a government employee. Verification types include: an employee ID badge, a business card with employees name printed on it, or a government credit card with employer name and employees name identified on the card.
Master Agreement: N/A
Participating Addendum: N/A
Please visit the WSCA-NASPO Travel Center to register and begin using the tool to book Hotels. Registration is free and limited to public employees using a work email address.
Searching Properties: The searchable database will display properties for the city you searched for. It contains icons showing amenities. It contains additional information (map, property details, and rates) by clicking the links on the right.
Estimated Costs: When searching for lodging facilities, the estimated cost is based on the per-diem and length of stay for the city searched. This estimated rate may change if the property offers a discount or if your search dates begin in one per-diem season and end in another. Properties that offer a discounted rate are identified with a green $ icon. Local taxes may vary by location and are subject to change without notice.
Preferred Properties: Green is Good. If the search results show a green leaf or & icon, it indicates that property is economically or environmentally preferable. Economically preferable indicates the property offers rates lower than GSA per-diems. Environmentally preferable means the property is using advanced environmentally friendly processes in their operation. Green star indicates that there are no blackout dates and a green key means the property offers last room availability.
