What is Pre-authorization?
All reservations must be guaranteed by a valid credit card at time of booking.

What is Pre-Authorization?
To adhere to proper card acceptance and validation norms defined by credit card associations, all hotels are required to pre-authorize - or separately, charge - all provided credit cards. A pre-authorization will place the pre-authorized amount in a holding-state and temporarily reduce one's credit card limit, but it is NOT a transaction charge and will not be reflected in one's credit card statement. Depending on one's credit card bank's set up, the pre-authorized amount will drop off typically after 14 days.
For assurance, guests whose credit cards have been pre-authorized are encouraged to check with their respective credit card bank to:
- Confirm the above understanding of pre-authorization;
- Confirm that a pre-authorization - and NOT a charge - has been performed; and
- Affirm the pre-authorized amount and when it will drop off as scheduled.
