  • Rooms may be reserved for a maximum of two hours, in increments of 30 minutes; reservations may be extended at the time of checkout if there are no other reservations on the room.
  • Reservations not claimed within 15 minutes of the scheduled reservation start-time will not be honored and the room will be made available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
  • When a room is not reserved in advance, drop-in use is first-come, first-served.
