The Primary Registered Guest, defined as the individual whose first and last name exists

card or passport upon arrival / check-in for the check-in to occur. The credit card holders first and last name

If the guest is staying for two nights at a rate of $299, then an authorization for $598 plus an additional $100 dollars for each day (hotel policy to cover lodging taxes and incidental charges) will be authorized on the credite card. This means that the particular authorized funds will be “earmarked” specifically for the Market Pavilion Hotel and will become financially unavailable to the guest from that point forward. If the guest does not exhaust the full $100 dollars for each night in incidentals during their stay, then authorizations for those funds will be released at the discretion of their financial institution (usually 2-4 days) after the check out date. DEBIT card holders must factor in the hotel's authorization policies when budgeting their finances during their visit.
