We collect payment for the first night when making a reservation, including a non-refundable reservation fee of $45 for each room reserved. A 14-day notice of cancellation is required, or you will be charged 50% of the reservation total - minimum charge, one night. A 48-hour, 10 AM EST, notice of cancellation is required, or you will be charged 100% of the reservation total.

All cancellations must be made in writing via email to the Clarendon Square. Your reservation is not cancelled until you receive a cancellation number from our office. Travel insurance is often worth the small cost. Please purchase trip insurance if you have reason to be concerned about canceling your trip.

We try our best to accommodate every reservation while maintaining a boutique quality for our inn. In order to offer a personal guest experience, we give first priority to guests booking longer stays.

For this reason, there may be minimum stay requirements for the dates you request. These vary according to season and demand. Feel free to phone us for last-minute cancellations or for exceptions. We often offer discounts for stays 5 nights and over.
