Payment & Pre-authorisation

Reservation Terms

Parking Information


Payment and Pre-Authorisation

Upon check-in, a valid credit or debit card must be provided so we can carry out a pre-authorisation deposit.

The amount charged will be dependent on your room type:

  • Studio / One-Bedroom Apartments = £100
  • One-Bedroom Family / Premium Apartments = £200
  • Two-Bedroom Apartments = £200
  • Long stays (7+ nights) without a corporate agreement = additional £100

The amounts shown above will not actually be charged to your card or leave your account. The pre-authorisation will appear as a pending transaction on your account, but the funds will be unavailable for you to access. If your account is with an internet bank, e.g. Monzo or Revolut, you will see this as a minus transaction - not pending - due to the way these accounts operate. 

Upon check-out, the money will automatically be released and be returned to your account. 

If the pre-authorisation is unsuccessful, we will ask to take it from another payment method. If you are unable to provide another payment method, we, unfortunately, will have to cancel your booking.

We take a pre-authorisation to cover any incidentals or damages, including odour removal, deep cleaning, and loss of income incurred if the apartment has to be put out of service. You agree to allow us to charge your card for any amounts which may be due from you after you have checked out including additional charges or charges for any damage or loss to the accommodation after the end of your stay.

Releasing your pre-authorisation

The release of the pre-authorisation fee is actioned immediately upon check-out. How long it takes to release the money into your account depends on your bank and could take between 5-to-10 working days. 

If this is taking longer than expected and you are concerned, please send a copy or screenshot to reservations@citysuites.com of the pending or settled transaction for £100.00 / £200.00 from CitySuites Operating Company for pre-authorisation and we will investigate further.

If you do not have a pending or settled transaction, the pre-authorisation has already been released back to your account.

Manchester ABID's "City Visitor Charge" 

This is a visitor charge that will apply to all bookings made commencing 1 April 2023, implemented by Manchester Accommodation Business Improvement District (ABID).

Manchester ABID has stated that the reason for this tax charge for tourists in Manchester is to "attract and retain more visitors" in the city, which will be delivered through "better visitor experiences" that will drive more visitors. 

We've created an easy-to-read guide on ABID's new charge that will affect CitySuites guests.

For any stays after April 1st, there will be a VAT-inclusive charge of £1.20 per night’s stay for all guests. This is inclusive of the £1 ABID charge plus VAT, as mentioned by HMRC’s forum.

Embankment Kitchen & Embankment Cafe Co.

Please note that we are unable to charge any food or drink to your CitySuites apartment. Any items ordered on these premises must be paid for via a credit or debit card at the point of sale.

Other payment terms

Payment for your booking will be taken before or upon arrival unless you have paid in advance. Any failure of payment is a breach of all Terms and we reserve the right to escalate as appropriate. 

You agree to allow us to charge your card for any amounts which may be due from you after you have checked out. This includes any incidentals or services you have used, including parking and dinner in Embankment Kitchen, or damages, including odour removal, deep cleaning, and loss of income incurred if the apartment has to be put out of service. The card used will be the card on file or provided at check in.

CitySuites is a cashless operation.
