Do I need to give my credit card information when I reserve online? Is it secure?
Yes, your credit card is required to guarantee your room. When you reserve your room with a credit card, the room is held for you regardless of your arrival time. This means the hotel is required to hold your room for you until 7 the morning following your date of arrival.

Your credit card is not charged for your stay prior to your arrival unless the hotel has a prepayment or deposit requirement. Prepayment and deposit requirements are displayed for hotels during the CONFIRMATION process. A warning will display if the hotel requires a deposit or prepayment. If you do not want to give your credit card over the internet, please call our Reservations Center.

What are the check in and check out times at the hotel?
Each hotel sets their own check in and check out times. To find this information, type in the city name you wish to know this information about.  Once you have a list of hotels simply click on the hotel name, this will take you to information specific to this location. Look for the section that says "Hotel Details." The check in and check out time is listed there.

What happens if my plans change and I forget to change or cancel my reservations? Will I be charged?
Since you guaranteed your room for arrival using your credit card, you will be billed a minimum of one night's stay if you do not cancel your reservation prior to the cancellation deadline. Since cancellation policies vary from hotel to hotel, you may have additional liabilities. Please be sure to note the cancellation policy when making reservations online. This information is originally displayed once you have selected a room to reserve and will also be included once your reservation has been confirmed.

If you do not understand a hotel's cancellation policy or need further clarification, please email us or contact our Reservations Center.
