IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT – as of mid-June, we have been notified that our room block for both the Hilton Branson Convention Center AND the Hilton Promenade across the street are almost completely full.

When a property is sold out, it will still appear when one clicks on the Book Online icon, but the “Book a Room” link under that property will not be available. (If/when cancellations occur and a room(s) becomes available, the “Book a Room” link will re-appear under the appropriate property.)

Reservation Guidelines: To secure a guest room reservation, a major credit card will be required. Reservations cancelled within 24 hours of arrival will incur a charge for the first night’s Room/Tax charge.

Check-In/Out Time: Our check-in time is 4:00 PM; check-out time is 11:00 AM. All guests arriving before 4:00 PM will be accommodated as rooms become available. Hotel bellmen can arrange to check baggage for those arriving early when rooms are unavailable and for guests attending functions on departure day.

Early Departure Fee: If a guest checks out prior to the guest's reserved checkout date, the Hotel will add an early check-out fee to that guest's individual account (currently, one night’s Room/Tax). Guests wishing to avoid an early checkout fee should advise the Hotel 48 hours prior to day of arrival.

Parking Options/Fees: Guests of the hotel can either park at our Self-Parking Garage for $15/Day for unlimited in & out privileges, or Valet Park for $25/Day for unlimited in & out privileges. Guests will check into the Hotel prior to selecting their parking options.

Incidental Hold on Credit Card: Guests that provide their own credit card for Incidentals, will have an authorized hold of $50/day on their credit card account. If no Incidental charges are made during time of stay, anticipate 3 – 5 days post check-out before authorization hold is released. Discourage use of debit cards, as release of funds may take longer.
