This hotel listing was printed from Active International's Travel Website at travel.activeinternational.com. Greater detail about each hotel may be found on the website. You must be a client to log on and purchase any travel inventory.
We facilitate your purchase of hotel accommodations but do not ourselves sell hotel accommodations nor are we a co-vendor associated with the vendors of hotel rooms booked through this Site.
Hotel accommodations marketed on our Site are offered pursuant to two different models.
Under the first model, you will pay Active the prevailing room rate available to Active at the time of reservation request, including estimated state and local room taxes and a service fee to cover Active's costs of processing and handling the payment of your room taxes (this is referred to on the Site as the "Estimated Taxes and Service Fee"). We provide an estimate of such state and local room taxes based on tax rate information that has been provided to us by the hotels or which we reasonably expect the hotels to charge. Taxability and the appropriate tax rate and the type of applicable taxes vary greatly by location. Active makes reasonable efforts to ensure that the estimated tax rates charged through this Site are accurate. If you pay to Active the Estimated Taxes and Service Fee, you will have no liability to Active should additional room taxes be due in respect of your room rate beyond what you are charged upon completing your transaction for the room and room nights booked through the Site. In the unlikely event that actual tax rates are in fact lower than the estimated tax rates charged through this Site, Active will retain the difference as part of its service fee.
Under the second model, you will pay Active the prevailing room rate, excluding room taxes. When room taxes are excluded, i.e. required to be paid by you directly to the hotel rather than to Active on the Site, you will be required to pay all such applicable room taxes directly to the hotel at checkout. In this case, we will still provide to you estimated state and local room taxes based on tax rate information that has been provided to us by the hotels or which we reasonably expect the hotels to charge (this is referred to as "Estimated Taxes" on the Site). We do not include any service fee with respect to Estimated Taxes, which are not paid to Active. While Active makes reasonable efforts to ensure that the estimated tax rates are accurate, the actual state and local room taxes charged by the hotel and required to be paid by you may vary.
Please be aware that you (and/or any guests) may also incur charges at hotel(s) that are not payable to Active or included in your quoted price on the Site which nonetheless are your sole responsibility and must be paid by you directly to the hotel at the time of check-out in accordance with the hotel's prevailing policies, including, without limitation, any other governmental charges or taxes, any resort fees/service charges, charges for food and beverage, extra-person or extra-bed charges, gratuities, hotel energy surcharges, parking fees, internet, WI FI, telephone fees, room service, movies, mini-bar, transfers/transportation, and any other incidentals. For this reason, you will be required to provide a valid credit card at time of check-in to cover all such charges. All Members, authorized users and hotel guests must comply with each hotel's standard terms and conditions.

13. SERVICES AND CONTENT
We will use our reasonable commercial efforts to keep our Site available on a 24-hour/7-day-a- week basis, subject to necessary scheduled downtime for maintenance, unscheduled maintenance, and system outages. We cannot promise that access to the Site will be uninterrupted or available at all times. We assume no liability or responsibility for any delay, interruption, or downtime. Our Reservation Center is open M-F 8:30 am to 5:30 pm excluding all major holidays and may be contacted at 1-800-852-8864 or email@example.com
Through our Site, we provide an online platform through which you can browse different types of then available Products and Services and make and/or request to make a Booking, including making payment for such Bookings on line in advance with a credit card.
When rendering our services, the information that we disclose about Products and Services is based on the information provided to us directly or indirectly by Providers (or service providers engaged or licensed by us or Providers to provide information about Providers), including all rates, availability, description, pictures, booking conditions, accommodation policies and other information which is displayed on the Site. Although we will use commercially reasonable skill and care in performing our services we will not verify if, and cannot guarantee that, all information is accurate, complete, correct or up to date, nor can we be held responsible for any errors (including manifest and typographical errors), interruptions (whether due to any (temporary and/or partial) breakdown, repair, upgrade or maintenance of the Site or otherwise), inaccurate, misleading or untrue information or non-delivery of information. Additionally, changes in market conditions or circumstances may occur on short notice which may make information displayed on the Site inaccurate or outdated. We assume no liability or responsibility for any errors or omissions regarding information provided on the site about Products and Services or any Provider. You are responsible for evaluating the accuracy, completeness, and usefulness of any opinion, advice, or other content available through the Site.
In case of problems, our Reservation Center customer service will use its commercially reasonable efforts to assist you and serve as a point of contact with the Provider. Please note that Active’s inventory with Providers is finite, and that when a search result indicates that a particular Provider is not available through our Site, that means the room type is not available for reservation through us.
The Site does not constitute and should not be regarded as a recommendation or endorsement of (the quality, service level or rating of) any Providers or Products and Services listed on the Site. We hereby expressly disclaim any representation, warranty or undertaking in relation to the quality, status or adequacy of any Accommodation listed on the Site.
To the extent permitted by applicable law, we reserve the right to, and our discretion, refuse or cancel bookings in exceptional cases and will notify you of the refusal or cancellation by email to the address you provided when you made your booking. Typical reasons for rejecting or cancelling a booking include, but are not limited to: Provider request(s), actual or suspected violation of Club rules, e.g. reselling of any accommodations booked through the Site on an individual, breach of the Terms, force majeure events, trade or economic sanctions, embargoes, legal restrictions, closures (by reason of pandemic, e.g. Covid 19 or otherwise) (suspicions of) fraud or theft, suspected criminal activity, suspicious bookings, submission by you of misleading or erroneous information, payment instrument problems, inappropriate behavior, threats, insults, violence, refusal to supply information, practical obstacles, communication problems, obvious errors (see below), history, blacklisting by governments or international organizations, etc. If your booking is rejected or cancelled by Active and a payment has already been made, you will receive a refund of the total booking value, (except in the case of breach of the Terms wherein refund of the total booking value or any part thereof is not justifiable).
In rare cases, we may also have to cancel or reject a booking or make adjustments due to “obvious errors”, independent of the origin of such errors. For clarity, an obvious error is a mistake on the Site (e.g. in terms of price, conditions, points) which a reasonable person would not consider to be normal. If your booking is affected by an obvious error, we will notify you by email at the address you provided when you made the booking and will adjust the booking, and will, if relevant, refund some or all of the amount charged.
A star or other denoted ratings, or any reference on the Site to a rating on the Site are provided for your information only and are based on information we have received from Providers or services providing information about Providers to our Site. We do not independently verify star ratings. Please be aware that star ratings can vary greatly on the basis of location, available alternatives, local market conditions, practices or other circumstances.
