Hotel Cancellation Policy: All hotel deposits are refundable if cancellation is received by the hotel on or prior to August 30, 2019. After August 30, 2019, please note the following: Cancelled reservations will result in 100% payment (room and tax) for the entire stay booked. The individual's credit card will be charged accordingly. If a credit card is not on file with the hotel, an invoice will be sent. A change in a reservation resulting in a reduction of room night(s) will result in 100% payment (room and tax) of the cancelled room night(s). By booking into the discounted room block offered by the MMPA and WCMA, attendee(s) agree to the cancellation policy which is now industry standard in the meetings and events industry. Last minute guestroom cancellations leave MMPA and WCMA exposed to large contractual commitments with no opportunity to resell the guestrooms. Careful planning will alleviate any financial exposure for the individual and the association. This cancellation clause overrides the online reservation clause posted by The Astor Crowne Plaza booking site and attendee(s) acknowledge and agree to this policy by booking into the discounted room block.
