If the Client cancels the Event or moves the Event to another city or facility, such decision would constitute a breach of his or her obligation to the Hotel, and the Hotel would be harmed. The Client will pay to the Hotel, as liquidated damages, and not as a penalty, within thirty (30) days after written notification to the Hotel of the cancellation. Cancellation must be received in writing. Until receipt of such notifications, the Client will continue to be liable and responsible for 100% of all estimated charges:

Date of Cancellation Total Amount of Liquidated Damages
More Than 9 Months Out The initial deposit or 25% of Total Estimated Revenue (Whichever is Lower)
More Than 6 Months But Less Than 9 Months Out 50% of Total Estimated Revenue
More Than 3 Months But Less Than 6 Months Out 75% of Total Estimated Revenue
Less than 3 100% of Total Estimated Revenue

The total liquidated damages are calculated by multiplying the contracted total room nights by the contracted rate(s), plus the estimated total function charges including space rental and minimum food and beverage spend as agreed upon. The Hotel agrees that after receipt of such amounts, it will not seek additional damages.

Any or/all advance payments held by the Hotel are non-refundable and will be applied toward any outstanding charges due to the Hotel, including liquidated damages due as a result of cancellation.
The Hotel will not assume responsibility for damage or loss of any merchandise or articles brought into the premises, or for any items attended. With advance notice, the Catering Department would be pleased to assist you in arranging for security officers.
