Marriott’s (the world’s largest hotel chain due to the Starwood merger) changes their cancellation policy from 24 hours to 48 hours. The hotel chain will charge a fee equivalent to one night’s stay for cancellations under 48 hours.
Guests will need to cancel their room reservation by midnight – 48 hours before their arrival date. This new policy will only apply to locations in the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, and Latin America and does not apply to Design Hotels and Marriott Vacation Worldwide hotels.
It is true that some already had a 48 or even 72 hour cancellation policy. Some of the ones that already had the 48 hour policy, plan to increase it to 72 hours. This should help customers seeking last minute reservations since the 24 hours cancellation rule led to a significant number of unsold rooms.
So if you plan to cancel an upcoming hotel reservation – don’t wait until the last minute.
TIP: Always you check the fine print for cancellation rules and policies.
