How can I change my reservation? To modify your reservation, please send us a detailed request using our assistance form.

Identification: Photo ID will be required at check-in.

Can I pay for my reservation without a credit card? At the time of booking, a credit card is required as we take a $250 prepayment as a security deposit. If you wish to pay cash, it is possible. You will only have to pay for the entire stay upon arrival and leave a $250 cash or debit deposit which we will refund upon departure if you have no additional expenses. You will have to come by the reception to get the deposit back when you leave. However, to limit the risks during the COVID-19 pandemic, payments by credit card or debit card will be preferred.

When will the “prepayment” appear on my credit card? Within 24 hours of your reservation, a $250 deposit will be charged to your credit card.

How does the security deposit work on my credit card? You should allow 5-7 business days for the remaining security deposit – if greater than the actual amount – to become available again. The pre-authorization amount will not appear on your monthly statement, but it does affect your available funds, as it is a pending transaction from the time of the pre-authorization until 7 days after the actual capture of funds. Only the amount captured will appear on your monthly statement. Example: The total amount of your stay is $400. If you spend an additional $50 on goods and services during your stay, your balance is $450. The $250 prepayment will then be deducted and $200 will be captured. The remaining $200 will appear as available again within 5-7 business days.
