Westgate Resorts, which operates 25 properties across the U.S., will maintain its standard 10 percent commission rate for third parties and raise it to 12 percent during seasonal promotions, the company said. The announcement comes on the heels of IHG's disclosure last week that it would follow Marriott International and Hilton in cutting commissions to 7 percent at its properties in the U.S. and Canada. 
"We value the service independent meeting planners provide and will continue to reward it accordingly," said Westgate Resorts chief business officer Jared Saft in a statement.
Among Westgate's hotels are multiple resorts in Orlando and Las Vegas. New and upgraded meeting space can be found at properties in those locations, as well as in destinations such as Park City, Utah, and River Ranch, Fla. During certain time frames and in specific locations, Westgate will raise commissions to 12 percent over the coming year.
