Fla. Hilton Hikes Commissions on Rack Rates October 23, 1997 Share 1 -- FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- The 297-room Fort Lauderdale-Sunrise Hilton increased its commission on rack-rate business from 10% to 12% on stays completed by Dec. 31. The recent decrease in agent commissions by major airlines from 10% to 8% prompted the hotel's decision. "Travel agents have supported our hotel through good times and bad," general manager Harve Rosenthal said. "Their role in providing an ongoing flow of visitors for any hotel property is enormous."
