All attendee reservations must be accompanied by a first-night room deposit, or guaranteed with a major credit card of Group. The hotel will not hold any reservations unless secured by one of the above methods.

Cancellation less than 48 hours prior to arrival will result in a charge equal to one night’s room and tax,

and the balance of the canceled reservation will be considered when calculating any Group attrition

charges. Early departures and no-shows will result in the same charge and consequence. If a rooming

list is sent by Group, Group will be responsible for no-shows if a credit card is invalid or declined.

If you require an early check-in you will need to book the night before, otherwise, early check-ins can be requested, however, they are not guaranteed.  Cancellations less than 48 hours prior to arrival or No Shows will result in a charge equal to one night’s room and tax.


In the event a guest who has requested a room within the Room Block checks out prior to the guest and reserved checkout date, Hotel will add an early checkout fee of one night’s room and tax to that guest and individual account. Guests wishing to avoid an early checkout fee should advise Hotel at or before check-in of any change in planned length of stay.


Reservations by Group and attendees against the Room Block must be received on or before Monday,

January 20, 2020 (the “Cut-Off Date”). At the Cut-Off Date, Hotel will review the reservation pickup for the Event, release the unreserved rooms for general sale, and determine whether or not it can

subsequently, accept reservations based on space and rate-available basis at the group rate after this
