Hilton continues to monitor the path of Hurricane Sandy as the storm moves north and affects the Southeastern, Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern United States in its path. Our emergency preparedness procedures are active and we continue to work closely with local officials and tourism partners to communicate the most updated information to our guests. Our hotels in the affected areas are making the necessary preparations and, as always, the safety of our guests and employees remains our top priority.
From today, Sunday, October 28 through Tuesday, October 30, 2012, cancellation fees will be waived for advance purchase reservations for those hotels located in evacuation zones and affected areas. If guests check out before their scheduled departure date or time because their stay is negatively impacted by Hurricane Sandy, early departure charges will be waived at all applicable hotels. We continue to monitor and evaluate Hurricane Sandy's path and will update our policies accordingly.
We urge guests to check on the status of existing reservations by calling 1-800-HILTONS. Please continue to visit the Hilton Global Media Center (www.hiltonworldwideglobalmediacenter.com) as we monitor Hurricane Sandy's path and provide updates.
