Is there parking available at Hotel Contessa?

This We offer valet parking for $38/night plus tax. This does include unlimited in and out access.  For guests wishing to self-park, there are a very limited number of open-air lots and garages in the area, however these are not affiliated with the hotel. These off-site garages will charge per entry and exit, as well.

Can I have packages shipped to Hotel Contessa?

Guests are welcome to send packages to the Hotel Contessa.  We ask that all packages have the guests name on the package and have a scheduled arrival date prior to the guest’s arrival date.

What are Hotel Contessa's cancellation & credit card pre-authorization policies?

Cancellation Policy

  • Reservations made directly through the hotel have a 48-hour cancelation window. Guests can call to modify or cancel their reservation without penalty up to 48 hours before their arrival.  If a guest cancels outside of this window or does not come in for their reservation they will be charged for the entirety of the reservation.
  • There are some reservations that are non-cancelable and non-refundable which are typically pre-paid promotional rate reservations.  Reservations booked through third party vendors may only be cancelled or modified through the third party and are subject to the cancellation policy of that party. The hotel may not modify or cancel any reservations made through a third party.

Credit Card Pre-Authorizations at Check-In

  • We pre-authorize $75 per night for incidentals. The authorizations are not charges, they will show on your statement as “pending charges” and are not finalized until check out at which point all excess authorization is released.  It typically takes 3-5 business days for the authorization to fall off on the account.  We recommend credit cards over debit cards for this as when debit cards are authorized your bank will make the funds inaccessible.
