What is a pre-authorization of my credit card?

Pre-authorization, if done at your hotel, is a hold on your credit card credit line for a purchase placed there by the merchant who has initiated a charge, but not completely processed it. When the merchant finalizes the transaction process, the pre-authorization amount will be replaced by an actual charge to your card. We swipe your credit card at check-in to ensure that sufficient funds are available to settle your final bill –- and we hold this amount throughout your stay. The amount we check for will depend on the length of your stay and which hotel you are residing at. The member of staff checking you in will explain this process clearly. No money is taken from your credit card during a preauthorization, however, it will show as a pending transaction. The authorization of your card will last the length of your stay and it will take up to five days after your departure to be released. You can use a different card to pay your final bill. If you have any questions about pre-authorization, please inquire at the check-in area.
