It is imperative that individuals indicate their PIUG affiliation when making reservations.  The Hotel has a 24-hour cancellation policy. Any reservations that are not cancelled 24 hours in advance of the arrival date will be charged one night’s room and tax as a no-show penalty.

All non-guaranteed reservations will be held until 3:00 pm on the day prior to arrival, unless specifically designated as guaranteed. A guarantee may take the form of an advance deposit for the first night’s room and tax or an appropriate valid credit card number and expiration date (MasterCard, VISA, American Express, Diner’s Club, Carte Blanche and Discover Card), or other appropriate arrangements with the hotel's Credit Department, prior to your arrival.

If there are changes to a reservation, the Group representative or the individual with the reservation should inform the Hotel immediately. Should a reservation not be cancelled by 3:00 pm on the day prior to the scheduled arrival, the Group (or individual) will be charged one night ’s room and tax as a no-show fee.

Room rates are quoted exclusive of applicable state and local tax (which are currently 12.45%) or applicable service, or hotel specific fees in effect at the Hotel at the time of the meeting.
