Article 2: Payment
A valid credit card in the client’s name will be required as a guarantee upon arrival.
Otherwise, the Hotel reserves the right to refuse access to the room.

The credit card in the client’s name, which served as a guarantee or payment, will be requested by the establishment upon arrival. If the client does not have the card used for payment of the non-cancellable and non-modifiable reservation, Hôtel Montaigne will ask for a credit card in their name that will be immediately debited for the total amount of the stay, and the card that was initially charged at the time of booking will be credited.
