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." For information, call (800) 533-9555 or (954) 748-7000.
