Increasing Hotel Policy: Cancellations Could Cost You Big

Increasing Hotel Policy: Cancellations Could Cost You Big
Ryan Boyd

At the end of July, Hilton Worldwide will begin implementing a mandatory fee for customers who cancel their reservations outside of the 48-hour window before stays, joining Marriott International in the practice. Hotel companies believe that these policies will open up room availability in heavy-traffic locations such as Los Angeles and New York City.

“Last-minute cancellations in particular have prevented rooms from being made available to our guests,” said a spokesperson for Hilton Worldwide in a statement.

    The cited article speaks only about cancellations WITHIN 48 hours of the scheduled arrival. Your summary implied that there would now be a penalty for earlier cancellations.

    So the higher price charged by Hilton for a “cancellable” reservation isn’t enough for them??
