Depending on how you booked the accommodation, you may be able to contact the hotel or pension directly by phone or internet to make the necessary change/cancellation. If it was booked through a travel agent or consolidator, you may need to go through them.

Pay attention to the cancellation policy when you make the reservation.  Most hotels will require a credit card number to guarantee the room.  They will usually charge you for one night if you cancel less than 24 hours before arrival.  In some popular tourist destinations such as Hawaii or Las Vegas, this minimum notice may be as long as 72 hours, or you may be charged for the entire stay.  Availing of the special/promotional rates also impact on your ability to cancel your reservation.  If your accommodation, as they often do, requires payment at the point of booking, then the rates are usually non-refundable if cancelled.  Even if they don't require payment upfront yet, your reservation may still come with strings attached as far as cancellations are concerned so read the cancellation policy carefullyThe cost of your stay will unlikely be prorated if you wish to cut your trip short in this case.
