If this warning is not followed or the disturbance occurs after 10:00 p.m., you will forfeit all advance deposits and must leave the hotel immediately. The Catamaran reserves the right to evict a guest without warning if the circumstances warrant. Additionally, guests are liable for all damage to or theft of the property of the Catamaran. Your participation is appreciated as it helps assure a safe and restful stay for everyone.
