The American Hotel in Seattle has a cancellation policy that states if the cancellation is made more than 24 hours in advance, the deposit is forfeited, as of 2016. If the booking is cancelled within 24 hours, a fee is required that covers the cost of a night's stay. If no cancellation is received, the maximum fee is two night's stay.

Hotels including the Adrift Hotel and Spa in Long Beach have a cancellation policy that states cancellations should be made at least two days before the intended stay. If changes or cancellations are required after this time, the hotel requires guests to take full responsibility for the booking. If rooms can be filled by other guests before the stay, full or partial refunds may be made to the guests who canceled.

Radisson Hotels offer no penalty if the booking is canceled more than 24 hours prior to the stay, but late cancellations and no-shows are charged the full rate.
