Can you bill my company?
How does my company establish an account with BridgeStreet?
Yes. Many of our guests have their monthly bills sent directly to their company. In order to do this however, your company must establish credit with BridgeStreet.
Upon completion of a credit application, we will perform a credit check with your company. Once this process has been completed, we will contact your company to establish direct billing.
Why do you need my credit card if my company is being billed directly?
Every guest is required to provide a valid credit card number and expiration date at the time the reservation is requested, regardless of whether or not their company is being billed. The credit card will be used to guarantee payment for any incidentals, charges not accepted by your company or in case your company declines the invoice. If your company does decline an invoice, we will notify you before charging your credit card.
