Thank you for your recent review regarding your stay with us. I hope you enjoyed your time in New York, and we hope to see you soon. Regarding any sort of refunds, if you're talking about your security deposit, you need to contact your financial institution, and they can give you a better time line on when that will be processed. Please bear in mind, your deposit is not a charge. It's a hold from your bank. If there is anything else I can do to help, please let me know.
