Q. What is the check-in process?
A. The check-in process is seamless to you when you book through us at the Alexander. Since you are renting privately, you avoid any long lines at the front desk and proceed straight to your room when you arrive. In fact, the front desk is run by a separate rental agent not involved or familiar with your reservation. Therefore, if you need any assistance upon arrival or during your stay you need to contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and we generally respond within minutes. For reservations at the Fontainebleau and Seacoast you will need to stop at front desk to register and check-in.
Q. Is cleaning included with my reservation?
A. For Alexander and Seacoast reservations a checkout cleaning is included in your booking. The cleaning is performed after you check-out in preparation for next arriving guest. If you would like interim or daily cleanings we offer several options and additional fees apply. Trash removal is provided daily by one of our cleaning staff as a courtesy. Cleaning services at Fontainebleau is arranged and paid for at the front desk and is not included in your booking.

A. Yes, each reservation requires a security deposit of $500, but can increase based on size of unit and number of guests. The security deposit is a separate hold on your credit card that will be authorized before arrival and maintained as a hold in your account until after inspection of unit and no damage or violations have occurred. An authorization hold on your credit card does not charge your card, it verifies that funds are available and holds funds until after unit is inspected and funds are released back to your account within several business days. If a hold was not placed on credit card we still maintain right to recover costs relating to any damages that occurred to property.
