This was probably just a $20 additional authorization only in case you had incidental, if you did not charge anything to your room this will drop off within 3-5 business days.

Thank you for being our guest. I apologize that you room was not ready at check in time. We don't guarantee a check in time until after 3 o' clock. I understand that this is frustrating. Since COVID a lot of businesses have been short-staffed and overwhelmed with the business and we are in the same boat. We have a great team who work together to make sure that you receive a clean room and great service and for this reason, the rooms may take a little longer to clean. I hope that you will give us another opportunity in the future.
