Terms and conditions

General Terms and Conditions

The membership period in the Biddle Very Important Parent Program is from August 1 to July 31 of the following year. The membership is valid for one year, unless you have purchased a four-year membership. Membership renewal is not automatic, therefore you must respond to the renewal process. During your renewal process it is essential to update the hotel of your student's graduation year. If you have purchased a four-year membership you will be sent a membership update and graduation year confirmation. Should we not receive an update prior to the beginning of membership sales for the year, we cannot guarantee a room will be available for your student's commencement year. Therefore, the earlier you notify the hotel of graduation changes, the more likely your room can be guaranteed. The membership is not transferrable. Benefits apply to a maximum of two rooms during a single stay. All membership purchases are final, refunds will not be given. Benefit coupons are available based upon availability in the hotel's general inventory. The hotel is unfortunately unable to substitute the terms of any benefit coupons. To ensure you are able to use benefit coupons during your preferred dates, we suggest advance reservations. Benefit coupons expire each year on July 31. Four-year membership packages will be issued coupons for each year of membership. Unused benefits of this program cannot be redeemed for cash value.

Guaranteed Hotel Room for Commencement

We pledge to provide you with one room during the commencement year of your student. During your membership registration process you %indicated the year of your student's graduation. This will be the year that your room will be guaranteed for. Should your student's plans change, you must indicate a year change during your yearly renewal procedure. Four-year members must indicate on the graduation year confirmation form, this form is sent out during the same time as membership renewal. Deviations to graduation year will be accommodated on a first come, first serve basis. Should a graduation year not be updated, we cannot guarantee a room to your party. The hotel will contact you via email in September prior to spring commencement with instructions on how to reserve your room. We cannot guarantee a room type; therefore we will honor the room type requests on a first come first serve basis. Room rates are based on prevailing rates and will be quoted during the time the reservation is made. This benefit only guarantees one room per membership, and does not specify a room type.

Renewal Process

The renewal process for the following year will begin in February. We will contact you by US Postal Service or electronic mail via the address listed on file. During the renewal process you will be asked to update or confirm your student's graduation year. It is essential to ensure the graduation year is current to ensure your guaranteed room. We will process all changes on a first come first serve basis. Late changes to graduation year may affect the status of your guaranteed room. The hotel cannot be responsible to the loss of a guaranteed room due to late changes in a graduation year.
