We don't pay the hotel bill until we arrive in NY so wondered if hotel has to accept payment in cash. We will of course be happy to give cc# to cover incidentals, damage etc.
Husband is happy to carry a stack of cash on the plane to pay bill immediatly but we don't want to be stuck carrying around alot of cash if they won't accept it.
