Operator Services

Important Reminder: When using operator services of any vendor, you are not permitted to charge your room telephone number for the cost of the services, nor are you permitted to accept any collect or billed to third party calls charged to your room telephone.

If these guidelines are not followed, an additional $5 service fee will be assessed for each call charged. This service fee, plus the cost of the call, will be charged to one of the residents assigned to the room, with payments and reimbursements to be settled among the room's occupants.
