Tips to Reserving Hotel Room Blocks for Your Guests

Tips to Reserving Hotel Room Blocks for Your Guests

You’re only months away from the big day and all of the details have been figured out, except for one: finding an affordable hotel for your guests. Although not required, it’s very courteous and takes the guesswork out of the equation when you reserve a block of rooms at a hotel for your out-of-town guests, and even those guests who are planning on getting a little tipsy at the reception and want to crash in a nearby bed in lieu of driving under the influence. Here are a few handy tips to help you in your search:

• Begin your search at least six months out from your wedding date, in order to give you and your guests plenty of time to make a decision as to which hotel you like best. Consider finding two hotels at different price points, so guests have the option of going with a really nice place or something more budget-friendly.

• Check if your wedding venue already has relationships established with any hotels in the area. If they do, this could help save a lot of time and money.

• To reserve a block of rooms, be sure to verify all of the items each hotel requires from you in order to honor your request. For example, many hotels have a minimum amount of rooms that need to be reserved in order to lock in discounted rates, as well as a minimum amount of night stays.

• It doesn’t hurt to ask for some freebies, especially if you’re reserving a substantial amount of rooms from a hotel. For example, some hotels will give you a free honeymoon suite if you reserve a set amount of rooms over a couple nights.
Even with all of these tips, searching for a good hotel at the right price can be almost as tough as searching for your wedding venue itself. So leave it up to the experts at The Abbey Catering & Event Design Company to do all the legwork for you. Give one our event consultants a call at (888) 238-0949.
