The Westin will charge a non-refundable deposit equal to one (1) night's stay plus applicable taxes on December 17th, 2018, roughly one month prior to the convention. This deposit will be applied to the final room bill. To cancel a room without having to pay the deposit, you must contact the Arisia Innkeeper by December 9th at @email. This deposit policy applies only to reservations made at The Westin, not the overflow hotel.

If you do not have a valid card on file when deposits are run your room will be released. That means that you will not have a reservation at all. Please ensure that you are using a valid card number and that your card information is updated as necessary by that time.

For more information about the deposit, please see our Hotel Deposit FAQ
