5. HOW THE WEBSITE WORKS
The Website is designed to be used to introduce member Hosts to member Guests, and to facilitate the booking of residential units, apartments and or rooms (“Accommodations”).
Hosts post listings of available accommodations and services. Guests peruse the accommodations postings to identify potential locations. Guest then submits a request for accommodation for the desired dates. Mysuites matches the request with available accommodations. My suites forwards the date request to the Host, who will either accept or decline the Request. Guest will be notified of the Host’s response, and provided that both parties desire to proceed, Guest shall remit payment for booking the requested dates through the Website. Guest will receive a Booking Confirmation after the deposit has been made and accepted. Payment shall be forwarded to Host once Mysuites is notified of Guest’s check in. Guest is booking the specific dates, but not any specific location.
The reservation is for specific dates not for any specific accommodations. My suites and its hosts offer two types of reservations; Best Available Suite, and Preferred Suite. With a Preferred Suite reservation, the guest will select a preferred accommodation in their reservation. My suites will then use its best efforts to match the Guest to the preferred accommodation. However, due to the smaller exclusive membership nature of Mysuites, it is possible that the Host will encounter management issues, such as a prior guest holding over, making Mysuites unable to match Guest to the preferred accommodations, for all or a portion of Guest’s stay. In such event Guest will be matched with substitute accommodations.
With a Best Available Suite reservation, Mysuites will assign Guest to the Host with the best available suitable accommodations within 48 hours prior to arrival.
Mysuites is not an owner, operator or provider of any of the Accommodations. Mysuites does not own, sell, resell, provide, rent, re-rent, manage and/or control the Accommodations or any of the Services offered. Unless explicitly specified otherwise on the Website, Mysuites’ responsibilities are limited to: (1) facilitating the introduction of member hosts and member Guests and (2) serving as the limited payment collection agent of each Host for the purpose of accepting payments from Guests on behalf of the Host.

The deposit will be refunded 24 hours after check out, unless Host makes a claim for damages against the deposit.

Damages include stains on the floor, bedding, towels and sofas.
