House Limit

Updated: 2017-03-27.

In accommodations parlance, the house limit refers to the maximum amount the hotel will allow on credit before requesting payment. For example, if you rent a room, you may be able to charge some items, say perhaps pay-per-view movies or telephone calls, to the room, without having to put a credit card down in advance; however, too many may trigger the house limit, and you may be blocked from further transactions until you get the limit increased, usually by putting a card down or paying down the balance.
