When you book it says deposit may be required? What exactly does it mean? Also do they do anything cute/special if you mention you have a special occasion going on for your visit?
You don't have to put down a deposit but I suggest to give your credit card as a deposit to hold your room but if you decide to cancel make sure you do it 48 hours in advance so that way you won't be charged a night stay. Ask for an upgrade it can't hurt. Standard, Deluxe, or Premium rooms.
