How can I cancel a reservation?

All cancellations are managed by HVMB. Contact your HVMB representative for support.

Can I connect listings to more than one HVMB account?

Currently, only one HVMB account is able to be integrated with Guesty.

Can I connect to HVMB if I am already connected to Marriott via BookingPal or Rentals United?

Yes, it is possible to migrate listings that are connected to HVMB through Rentals United. See the steps below.


HVMB has paused migrations from BookingPal until further notice.

  1. Do not disconnect listings from the previous channel manager (BookingPal or Rentals United).

  2. Please contact (USA/Canada) or (outside of USA/Canada) for your new HMC ID relevant to Guesty. Please make sure to enter the new HMC ID provided by HVMB and not an old HMC ID connected to your previous channel manager.

  3. Connect your properties to HVMB directly from the Guesty dashboard by following the instructions in this article.

  4. HVMB will review the properties and complete a test reservation.

  5. HVMB will inform you when they are ready to go live with your listings from Guesty. From there, HVMB will deactivate the listings from your previous channel manager. 


Existing reservations with a future check-in date will remain live in HVMB via your old channel manager even when Guesty is connected. Therefore for a period of time, both connections will be active. You will have access to all accounts on the HVMB extranet to review future reservations. Payments to the PMC will continue as normal for the old reservations.
