The Site may contain technical inaccuracies and typographical or other errors in connection with information displayed on the Site, including, without limitation, rates, fees, stay details, or availability applicable to your transaction. Hyatt and Hyatt hotels assume no responsibility or liability for such errors, inaccuracies, or omissions. Hyatt and Hyatt hotels shall have the right not to honor reservations or information affected by such errors, inaccuracies, or omissions. Hyatt and Hyatt hotels shall have the right to make changes, corrections, cancellations, and/or improvements to such information or reservations based on such information, at any time, including after confirmation of a reservation.
The Site may display or provide information regarding specific programs, offers, or promotions (“Promotional Offers”).

Hyatt and Hyatt hotels reserve the right to alter or withdraw any Promotional Offer at any time without notice. Each Promotional Offer is void where prohibited by law.
Any commercial use of the Site is expressly prohibited unless you have obtained prior written consent from Hyatt. You may not use the Site to post or transmit any unlawful, infringing, threatening, libelous, defamatory, obscene, indecent, inflammatory, pornographic or profane material or any material that could constitute or encourage conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any law, or for any other purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by these Terms & Conditions. You agree that you will not (a) interfere with or disrupt the Site, (b) use, place, or distribute any viruses, worms, time bombs, and/or other computer programming routines that damage, intercept, disrupt, or harm (or are intended to do any of the preceding) the Site, including the underlying software, hardware, systems, and any users of the Site or their devices, (c) use or attempt to use any robot, spider, automatic device, or automatic or manual process to monitor, scrape, or copy the Site, or any information contained therein, without Hyatt’s prior express written consent, (d) use any device, software, or other instrument to monitor, copy, disrupt, alter, destroy, impair, restrict, tamper, interfere with, or attempt to interfere with the Site, its content, or its operation without Hyatt’s prior express written consent, or (e) take any action that imposes an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our infrastructure, systems or the Site.
You may only make reservations for yourself and your invited guests or for an individual for whom you are authorized in advance to act. You may not make reservations for any other purpose, including without limitation for purposes of reselling rooms, reservations or other benefits, posting, marketing, advertising, or otherwise distributing rooms, reservations, benefits, or availability (including without limitation on third-party web sites), making false, fraudulent, or speculative reservations, reserving rooms in anticipation of demand, making reservations for purposes of reselling rooms, or in an attempt to circumvent Hyatt or hotel practices, policies, terms or conditions. You may not use this Site to make reservations related to any commercial activity (unless specifically permitted by the hotel) or any unlawful activity. Reservations made, sold or transferred in violation of these Terms & Conditions may be cancelled without advance notice in Hyatt’s or a hotel’s sole discretion.
Certain rates are offered only to members of a designated group, such as World of Hyatt members or other qualified groups. Additionally, at certain times or on certain dates, reservations at a hotel may require a minimum length of stay, and that may affect whether a hotel appears to have availability. Hotels are only obligated to honor such rates for qualifying individuals or stays. It is up to you to verify that you qualify for the rate that you have booked. You may be required to establish that you qualify either at the time of reservation or check-in. If you cannot establish that you qualify, Hyatt reserves the right for Hyatt and/or the applicable hotel reserve the right in its sole discretion to cancel your reservation and/or charge the publicly available rate for your stay.
All reservations are subject to the cancellation policy of the hotel where the stay will occur. Please review the applicable cancellation policy during the reservation process.
Payment / Deposit
All reservations must be guaranteed with a valid major credit card, or an alternative hotel-approved form of payment, such as an advance deposit. Except for when making a reservation for a prepaid rate, you will be charged during your stay rather than at the time of making a reservation. In some situations a hotel may require a deposit, in which case the deposit requirement and amount will be disclosed at the time of making the reservation. You may also be charged as disclosed in the hotel’s cancellation policy.
No Arrangements for Prohibited Persons
The United States Department of Treasury maintains and publishes lists of “prohibited persons” who are government officials, residents of certain embargoed countries, terrorists or drug traffickers (“Sanctions”). There are limits on Hyatt’s ability to provide services to those prohibited persons pursuant to the Sanctions. You agree you are not a prohibited person and you agree not to make arrangements for any such prohibited persons to stay at, use or tour any Hyatt location, unless such prohibitions do not apply to the location, pursuant to a license, permit, or exclusion under the Sanctions.
If you choose to display a rate on the Site in a currency other than the Hotel Currency or ask for the rate in a different currency through a Global Contact Center, the Hotel Currency rate is converted for comparison purposes only using a regularly updated exchange rate. Except as noted below, guests are charged in the Hotel Currency. For clarity, the Hotel Currency is identified on the Site.
Certain hotels operate in a currency other than the Hotel Currency. Those hotels convert the Hotel Currency rate to such other currency, using the hotel’s exchange rate, at the time you are charged. For example, a hotel may show a Hotel Currency on the Site of U.S. Dollars even though the hotel may operate in Mexican Pesos. In such a situation, the hotel would convert the applicable amount from U.S. Dollars to Mexican Pesos using the hotel’s exchange rate, and you would be charged the Mexican Pesos amount.
Please contact us or the applicable hotel for additional information regarding currencies and exchange rates used at hotels.

Forward Looking Statements
Certain statements and assumptions in the Site contain or are based upon “forward-looking” statements or information and are being made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

Such statements are necessarily based upon estimates and subject to numerous assumptions and uncertainties as described in our Annual Reports on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and other SEC filings which could harm our business, financial condition, results of operations, or cash flows or cause our actual financial results or performance to differ materially from those expressed in or implied by the statements and information contained in the Site.
