Should you depart earlier than your confirmed departure date, you will be responsible for all nights originally reserved. Additionally, a processing and cancellation fee of $50 will be charged at the time of the cancellation and may not be applied as a future credit.

Groups – A 60-day notice of cancellation is required by groups reserving all rooms to ensure a refund of the deposit.
