How we collect and use your personal information
- Personal information refers to information that we can use to personally identify a specific individual. Different States and countries define personal information (and similar terms, such as personal data, personally identifiable information, and PII) to include different things, but it generally includes information like your name, mailing address, e-mail address, and phone number. it may also include your computer or mobile device IP address.
- Providing personal information is your choice, and you are generally in control of whether you provide us with your personal information. For example, if you want to sign up for our email list, make a reservation, or apply for a position with us, you will need to provide certain mandatory personal information related to the action you are taking.
However, if you are not comfortable with providing information to us, you should not do so. Although that will affect our ability to communicate with you and provide you with services, that is your choice.
- We may obtain and use personal information as described below:

Identification and Contact Information: This is information that identifies you as an individual (like your first and last name), and information that enables us to contact you (like your email address, mailing address, or phone number). It also may include information about you, such as information about your personal characteristics, guest preferences, and how you have interacted with us online or in person. This information is collected if you sign up to receive our emails or other promotional materials, if you contact us with an inquiry, if you make reservations with us, if you visit our hotel, lounge, or restaurant as a guest, or if you participate in any events we may offer from time to time. We may also receive information indirectly, for example if someone makes a reservation on your behalf. we collect and use this information for the purposes of (a) verifying your identity; (b) transacting business with you, which may include managing your hotel and dining reservations, completing your purchases of products and services, providing customer service, allowing you to participate in promotions and events, and seeking feedback on our services; (c) responding to any inquiry you send to us; and d) subject to your right to opt out and subject to applicable law, sending you newsletters and other promotional materials about products and services you may be interested in.
Billing information: If you transact business with us, such as by making a reservation or purchasing products or services from us, we will collect applicable billing information from you, such as credit card or bank account information, or, depending on payment options, information about your other payment method. We collect and use this information to hold reservations, complete purchases, and process required payments.
