Why do I need to pay a $100 damage deposit for my room under the Student Group Policy?
This is the case with many resorts as student groups have historically been a riskier booking for resorts, so have put a damage deposit in place to protect them.The hotel will receive a guarantee deposit of $100 USD per person on arrival to the hotel, for any damage, expenses, losses, fines that customers might incur. If there is no damage, this deposit will be returned to the clients before departure.

Alcoholic drinks & access to the night club will be allowed to students older than 18 years old. “Rule of 10” will be in place, established by local authorities: In the case of damaged items, customers will be charged the value of the item multiplied by 10.

If you have any further questions, please email Courtney at milfordc@macewan.ca and she will help you out or direct you to our Travel Agent for more specific support.
