Here are detailed answers to the questions most frequently asked by JARO Hotels' customers to our customer service team.
Arrival and Departure
You may check in from 4:30 PM on the day of arrival (5:00 PM for guests who have not booked directly with Les Hôtels JARO). However, you may arrive at the hotel as early as 1:00 PM and enjoy the facilities, even if your room is not yet ready. If the reserved room is available upon your arrival, we will gladly hand you the keys.
Yes. You can book a room without having to use a credit card. To do so, you must send a payment equal to the amount of the first night by check or money order. Payments by money orders must be received by the hotel before 11am the day prior to arrival, while payments by checks must be received by the hotel at least 21 days prior to arrival so they can be verified. In the event where the required payments are not received in time and no guaranteed has been given, the reservation is cancelled at 11am on the day prior to arrival.
Why do I have to give my credit card number at the time of booking?
Your credit card number is necessary to confirm your reservation. About 24h to 48h before your arrival, a pre-authorized fee of $100 will be withdrawn from your credit card. If your credit card is refused, the hotel reserves the right to cancel your reservation.
Are prepaid credit cards accepted at the time of booking?
No. Prepaid credit cards are not accepted at the time of booking. However, prepaid credit cards are accepted for room payments, if made at the front desk of the hotel.
Why is a security deposit requested upon arrival?
A security deposit is requested to every reservation holder upon check-in. The security deposit is used to open the credit of your room and to cover room service charges, long-distance phone calls, equipment damages and thefts, if applicable.
How much is the security deposit?
When rooms are paid for by credit card on arrival, an additional pre-authorization of $100 for rooms and up to $500 for suites will be charged to your credit card.
Upon departure, the pre-authorization taken on arrival will either be reversed, or topped up with the total amount of charges incurred during your stay.
***Please note that there is a delay of 5 to 10 business days for the reversal of any pre-authorization.
When the room is paid for by cash or Interac on arrival, the security deposit is returned to you on the original method of payment, in full or in part, depending on the service charges deducted, after an inspection of your room only. The amount of the security deposit varies according to the number of nights you stay and the type of room you reserve.
***Please note that the security deposit MUST be paid EXCLUSIVELY by credit card at Auberge Québec. NO cash or Interac deposit will be allowed at this establishment***
What is the hotel’s cancellation policy?
