AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT COMPLIANCE

The property has seven rooms certified as compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. We are also able to provide additional devices for hearing impaired guests. All common areas are ADA compliant.

BAG STORAGE

Should guests need to leave their baggage on our property before checking in or after checking out, the hotel will oblige and issue a bag check. In consideration of the free storage of the property covered by the check, the hotel is not liable for the theft, loss, damage, or destruction of the property in the absence of gross negligence on the part of the hotel or its employees. If the property is not claimed within 24 hours, the hotel shall have the right to examine its contents, in the presence of management, for security purposes (as advised by NYPD and Operation Nexus). After 10 days, it will be treated as lost and found (see Lost & Found below).

BATHTUBS

The majority of our rooms are equipped with bathtubs. Our ADA and standard rooms do not have bathtubs.

BUSINESS CENTER

Use of our business center is complimentary. We ask that guests be considerate of others regarding session length, illicit content of pages viewed, and the sound volume. Talking on a cell phone is discouraged unless absolutely necessary. Our computers are PCs only and use OpenOffice, which offers all of the features of Microsoft Office. You can view, edit, print, and save in all document formats.

CHECK-IN & CHECK-OUT TIMES

Check-in time is at 3 p.m. and checkout is at noon. If you arrive early or need to depart late, our Bell team will likely be able to store your luggage. We cannot guarantee early arrivals and late departures, but we will attempt to accommodate requests. Late departures up to 4:00 p.m. are subject to a half-day rate and departures after 4:00 p.m. are subject to a full-day rate.

CLOSURES/CALENDAR

The Roof at Park South is subject to closure on occasion for private events. The hotel shall make every attempt to notify our in-house guests of these closures with appropriate signage in our Lobby and elevators. We also post these closures on our website once a party is confirmed.

DAMAGE TO THE ROOM, FIXTURES, OR ITEMS

Any type of damage to our room, its fixtures, or the loss or damage to items in the room will result in a charge that will be at the discretion of management.

DIETARY RESTRICTIONS

If a guest or patron has any dietary restrictions and is staying in the hotel, we ask that you notify us by phone, email, or Open Table as soon possible so that we can do our best to accommodate you. If you are dining with us, please notify the server upon being seated of your restrictions.

DO NOT DISTURB POLICIES

The interior of each door has a "Do Not Disturb" (DND) and a "Please Clean Room" hanging sign. When the "Do Not Disturb" sign is on the outside of the door it will alert all staff members not to knock or enter the room for any reason. When the "Please Clean Room" sign is shown, the staff knows they should clean the room as soon as they can. Management reserves the right to enter a room with a known status of "Do Not Disturb" in the event of an emergency or if suspected illegal activity is taking place.

DRINKING AGE/INTOXICATION/CONDUCT

The drinking age in the USA is 21 years old. All underage patrons must be accompanied by a parent or guardian for admittance. However, no minors are permitted at the bar at any time. Valid proof of age is required for all guests when consuming alcohol on our property. Public intoxication will not be tolerated on our property. Disrupting the guests’ experience with inappropriate behavior including harassment, offensive or insulting language, or any other means deemed inappropriate by management will result in dismissal from the property.

EVENT POLICIES

In order to maintain a comfortable atmosphere for all of our guests and patrons to enjoy, we ask that patrons consider those that are sharing the space. We do not allow for decorations, entertainment, outside food and drink (including cakes and cupcakes), or other items or activity that would affect our atmosphere unless the space has been rented exclusively. Exclusive rentals are subject to the terms of a contract.

FITNESS CENTER

The fitness center is for unlimited use to guests over the age of 18 (unless accompanied by an adult) and is at your own risk. It is assumed that patrons know their physical limitations. Proper attire, including shirt and shoes, must be worn at all times and equipment must be wiped down after use.

GRATUITY

A gratuity of 18.25% will automatically be placed on all parties of six or more that dine in our restaurant.

GROUPS

Ten or more reservations are considered a group and must be booked through our Sales Department.

GUARANTEE, NON-REFUNDABLE, CANCELLATION, OR CHANGE OF RESERVATION

A valid credit card is necessary to reserve a room and a full 24-hour notice prior to the 3:00 p.m. arrival time is required to cancel or to make a change to a reservation. We charge a full day’s room and tax to the credit card used to guarantee the reservation if a cancellation occurs within this period. Non-refundable rate reservations are not subject to cancellation policies and are non-transferable. In order to secure the lower rate at the time of the booking, the guest has waived the ability to cancel. The amount for the entire stay is due at the time of the booking and is not refundable for any reason.

HOUSEKEEPING

For the safety of our staff and our guests, all occupied rooms will be serviced while guests are not present. We can service a room at any time that is convenient up to 6:00 p.m. Please alert the front desk, or a housekeeping supervisor, if you would like to schedule service at a particular time.

Guests that return after 6 p.m. to find they left the DND sign on will not be able to have full service of the room, but an attendant will empty garbage and provide new towels and amenities. Should you need further assistance, contact the front desk.

ILLICIT ACTIVITY, NOISE, & COMPLAINTS

The hotel will report all suspected illegal activity to the appropriate authorities and reserves the right to refuse service to anyone suspected of involvement in such activity. The hotel reserves the right to enter any area of the hotel, including guestrooms, should there be a reason for suspicion of illegal activity, or if we suspect our property, staff, or guests are at risk.

All guests are expected to exhibit appropriate civil conduct while on our property and in our rooms. Public intoxication will not be tolerated on our property. Disrupting the guests’ experience with inappropriate behavior including harassment, offensive or insulting language, or any other means deemed inappropriate by management will result in dismissal from the property in addition to paying for any charges the hotel incurs as a result of the disruption.

MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY, ROLLAWAYS, ADDITIONAL GUESTS, & REGISTRATION

Room rates are based on single or double occupancy with $30 (plus taxes) added to the nightly rate for each additional third and fourth adult. Adults are considered 12 years of age and over. Maximum occupancy for a room with one bed is two and four for a room with two double beds. The hotel does not have rollaways or cots, nor do we allow additional bedding to be placed in the rooms, as ordered by FDNY. All additional guests must be registered with the front desk at the time of arrival.

MEETING ROOM POLICY

All requests for the usage of our meeting space must be made in advance with our sales department and are subject to the terms of a contract. Unless stated in the contract, all reservations, hotel, and food and beverage policies apply.

MINIMUM AGE REQUIREMENTS

In order to reserve a room and check in to our property you must be at least 21 years of age and provide a valid driver's license and credit card. The hotel requires that someone at least 21 years old actually stays on the property and is responsible for all activity that takes place.

OPERATION NEXUS

The New York City Police Department’s Operation Nexus is a nationwide network of businesses and enterprises joined in an effort to prevent another terrorist attack against our citizens. Members of Operation Nexus are committed to reporting suspicious business encounters that they believe may have possible links to terrorism and the Park South is an active member.

OUTSIDE FOOD & BEVERAGE

The hotel does not allow for any food or beverage purchased from another provider. In the case that a specific item is needed or requested and we are not able to provide it on or own, please contact management from either the restaurant or hotel in advance for approval.

PACKAGE RECEIVING & STORAGE

The hotel has limited storage space. We will store small to medium packages arriving a maximum of two days prior to the arrival date. The shipping label must contain the name of the reserved guest (please include the arrival date) or we will not accept the package for security reasons (as advised by NYPD and Operation Nexus). We reserve the right to charge a $5 storage fee per day, per package, payable on arrival.

PARADES/STREET CLOSURES

Because of the diversity and grandeur of New York City, parades and other events will force the NYPD to close down certain streets in Midtown (usually on Sundays, with the exception of Thanksgiving Thursday for the Macy's Day parade on 6th Avenue). The hotel is not responsible for any effect a street closure may have on the agenda of one of our guests. Click here for more information on street closures and events scheduled that may affect your stay.

PARKING

The hotel has a partnership with a local garage that provides valet parking service for our guests. Self-parking is available throughout the city and prices vary per garage. There are a number of garages within a few blocks of the hotel. We do not recommend parking on the street, regardless of posted signage, as damage, theft, or parking tickets can occur at any time without notice. The hotel is not responsible for fines, loss, or damage to cars on the street or in the loading zone directly in front of the hotel. Currently, valet parking rates are $45 per night for a sedan, with a $10 surcharge for oversized vehicles such as SUVs, trucks, vans, or wagons. Rates are subject to change. This rate is based on a 24-hour period with no in and out privileges.

Cars exceeding the 24-hour period by more than one hour will be charged for a full night. Under normal circumstances, the hotel recommends allowing roughly half an hour to retrieve the vehicle for departure. The hotel and garage are not responsible for personal belongings left in the car or glove compartment. We recommend removing all valuables from the car when you arrive and ask that you leave only the key to the ignition. All claims for loss or damage must be made to the garage attendant at the time the car is returned. After guest departure, insurance regulation states that the hotel and garage assume no liability for loss of or damage to the guests’ property or vehicle.

PAYMENT POLICIES

Unless otherwise stated at the time of booking, payment must be guaranteed on arrival. A valid credit card is required and will be authorized for the full amount of the stay, plus taxes and an additional $50 per day to guarantee incidentals. While most authorizations release immediately upon departure, some credit or debit card authorizations may take up to 30 days to release depending on the issuing bank. The hotel is not responsible for any fees or inconvenience that may result. If you are experiencing an issue with a pending authorization, please contact the issuing bank by calling the number on the back of the card and feel free to contact the front desk if they require the hotel’s assistance in getting an approval released. We accept the following payment types: American Express, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, Diner’s Club, JCB, travelers checks (USD), and bank transfer*.

Cash is only accepted upon departure. A valid credit card and proper identification must be provided upon arrival.

Personal checks are not accepted without advance written request and management approval. Foreign currencies are not accepted, nor exchanged, but locations for these services are nearby (please contact the Front Desk). Bank transfers must be accompanied by an additional $50 for associated transfer fees and require advance written notice and management approval.

PERSONAL REFRIGERATORS & COFFEE MAKERS

The hotel does not have the ability to provide personal refrigeration units and coffeemakers in all rooms. They are based on availability—free of charge—on the day of arrival.

PET POLICY

We do not allow animals of any kind on our property, with the exception of registered service animals with certification. Noncompliance will result in a $200 cleaning fee and dismissal from our property.

PORTERAGE

A one-time fee of $8 per item may be assessed in the event a large amount of luggage or packages are handled by the bell staff for a particular guest. This will be determined on a case-by-case basis by hotel management and notification will be given to the guest. The full amount is payable to the hotel with 100% being issued to the bell staff responsible for handling the items. Groups of 10 rooms or more may be subject to porterage as stated in their contracts.

SAFES/LOST & FOUND/PERSONAL PROPERTY

In-room safes are provided in every guestroom to store any items of value. However, the hotel is not liable for the theft, loss, damage, or destruction of the property in the absence of gross negligence on the part of the hotel or its employees. The hotel will make every effort to retrieve and hold any items accidentally left behind for up to 30 days. After that period has passed, and the item remains unclaimed, it becomes property of the hotel or it is disposed of. To contact the Lost and Found department dial extension 7030 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday or email frontdesk@parksouthhotel.com.

Any items left in or next to the garbage bins are considered refuse and will be discarded. The hotel is not responsible for items that appear to be for disposal. Guests are encouraged to avoid confusion by placing all items in the drawers and cabinets provided or in their luggage.

SHIPPING

The hotel is able to provide shipping supplies if available. However, pickup and payment must be made exclusive of the hotel.

SMOKING POLICY

The Park South Hotel is a non-smoking property and all guest rooms are non-smoking. Smoking in the rooms or tampering with the smoke detectors will result in a cleaning fee of $150 and continued noncompliance will result in dismissal from our property.

TRANSPORTATION

We kindly inform you that we work with a third-party transportation provider and, therefore, are not liable for any delays or missed transfers due to issues experienced on their end.

VALET LAUNDRY

The hotel has a partnership with a local dry cleaning and laundry service. Same-day service is available if the clothes are received by 9 a.m., and they are returned that evening at 6:00 p.m. If the clothes are received after 9:00 a.m., they will return the following day at 6:00 p.m. The hotel is not responsible for loss or damage, but will make every effort to work with the dry cleaner and the guest to form a resolution should a problem occur.
