I've worked in a few hotels, PD.  Aside from going online - which will get you rates better than anyone at the hotel can - the biggest trick is understanding room availability.  If there are a lot of rooms available, asking for the "Best Available Rate" can get you a better rate than AAA/AARP, which is only 10% off the Rack Rate.  (FYI, Rack Rate is the regular, undiscounted rate.)

Also, if you know the area is going to be busy when you are travelling, check prices well in advance at multiple hotels.  That way you might be able to benefit if one of the hotels is slow to up their prices in anticipation for the high demand.
