You can search for hotel Accommodations by using criteria like check-in and check-out dates. Search results are ranked based on their relevance to your search and other criteria. We use a variety of factors to determine search rankings, including location, category, competitiveness of the hotel’s rates, and bookings on Book To Stay, as well as the compensation we earn for listing the hotel on our site and facilitating your booking. We also personalize search results based on your preferences and other data related to your search criteria. In order to continually optimize our service, we may test different ranking algorithms from time to time.
To refine your search results, you can filter by the number of rooms, number of beds, or amenities you’re looking for. You can also sort by top deals, lowest price, or most premium.
Hotel Content. Suppliers provide us with information about the Accommodations they wish to offer through the Service, including property name, address, amenities, and photos (“Hotel Content”). Book To Stay is not responsible for the accuracy of images or content provided by Suppliers and disclaims all liability for any errors or inaccuracies in Hotel Content. Hotel photos that appear on the Service are representative of the approximate type and standard of the Accommodations offered by the Supplier and should not be construed as guarantees of the Accommodations you will receive.
By booking an Accommodation through the Service, you authorize Book To Stay to (i) facilitate the reservation on your behalf, including making payment arrangements with the Supplier, and (ii) charge your payment method for the total reservation price. You agree to pay all charges for your booking, including the nightly room price, applicable taxes and fees, and any other charges identified during checkout. You are responsible for paying the Supplier directly for any incidentals, room upgrades, resort fees, or other fees due on-site at the hotel, as well as any associated taxes.
You will be charged by Book To Stay in the currency indicated in the site during check-out for your booking. Some banks and credit card companies may impose currency conversion fees (for example, if you are making a booking in a currency other than the currency of your credit card). Currency exchange rates and conversion fees are determined solely by your bank. If you have any questions about these fees or the exchange rate applied to your booking, please contact your bank.
The nightly room price displayed includes the room rate set by the Supplier and a facilitation fee that we retain as part of the compensation for our services. Book To Stay makes no guarantee that the prices offered by Suppliers through the Service represent (i) the lowest price then available for the same hotel room or (ii) the published price for a hotel room on another website or publication not affiliated with Book To Stay.
Hotel Overbooking and Cancellations
If a Supplier is unable to honor your reservation, please contact us immediately. We will do our best to work with you and the hotel to find alternative accommodations, but we do not guarantee that we will be able to rebook your reservation.
Unless otherwise specified during check-out for your booking or otherwise permitted by our policies or terms, reservations made on Book To Stay are non-cancellable and non-refundable. If your reservation is specified during check-out as being cancellable, you may cancel through the Service up until the time and date provided in your confirmation email.If you cancel the booking before that time, the amounts paid will be refunded to the payment method and Book To Stay account used to make the booking. Any promotional consideration earned on a booking that was cancelled and refunded will be removed from your account upon cancellation.
Room Assignments and Check-In
Upon check-in at the hotel, you may be required to present a form of payment acceptable to the Supplier (such as a credit card or cash deposit) to cover additional expenses incurred during your stay. The minimum account balance or amount of available credit may vary by Supplier, and any such deposit is unrelated to any payment received by Book To Stay for your booking. Please confirm these details with the Supplier prior to your travel.
All rooms booked through Book To Stay can accommodate two guests unless otherwise specified in the hotel’s profile. You may not exceed the maximum number of allowed guests. Any extra guests are at the Supplier’s discretion and may be subject to additional fees imposed by the Supplier. Unless otherwise specified, no specific room type is guaranteed with your booking. Room assignments are based on availability and are at the Supplier’s discretion. If you have special requests (including bed types, preferences for smoking or non-smoking rooms, a specific room, floor location, pet accommodations, or wheelchair or other accessibility needs), you must contact the Supplier directly to inquire whether special requests can be met. Book To Stay has no control over which room a Supplier will assign to you and cannot guarantee special requests in advance of your booking.
Contact the Supplier if you will be checking in late. If you fail to check in to your Accommodation on the date and time of your reservation, the remaining portion of your reservation with the Supplier may be cancelled, and you will not be entitled to a refund unless your booking was specified during checkout as cancellable or unless otherwise permitted by our policies or terms.
