Early Arrivals and Late Departures

Check-in time is 3:00 PM and check-out time is 11:00 AM (Noon on Sundays). We will be happy to grant requests for early arrivals and/or late departures as our occupancy permits. There is a day rest rate which allows you to extend your check-out time to 3 p.m. The rate varies by season. Please check with our guest service agent, 800-463-6465 or email, to confirm the rate that would apply to your booking date.

If your arrival is early in the day and you prefer immediate access, we recommend reserving for the prior night to guarantee access. Similarly, for late departures, reserving an additional night will guarantee access until you leave the hotel. If you choose not to reserve, we will be glad to store your bags.
