Hotel Incidental Policy: Upon your check in to your assigned hotel, the hotel will require you to present a credit card. The hotel will hold a pre-authorization amount for the amount of room nights you are there (inclusive of tax and resort fee) and $100 per day for the length of your stay. Depending on your bank, it could take up to two (2) - 30 days for the unused funds to reappear back on your account. This is not an MiLB or Baseball Winter Meetings policy, but a policy directed by the hotels.
