Umm since when is October off-season? I cannot believe they told you not to block rooms! Hmm. Well if the hotel is full, the hotel is full. They aren’t going to kick out other guests who reserved rooms. I would definitely complain to them about how you were completely misled, possibly try to get them to comp you something (are you guys staying there? they should comp your rooms for that screw up). But as far as your guests go I think your hands are tied and you need to set up blocks at the other, worse hotels. It sucks but I don’t see what other choice you have.

So sorry about this!

I would honestly get a room block at one of the other hotels in the area and offer a shuttle for your guests. Our country club has 11 rooms, I paid the deposit on all of them to ensure my family had a place to stay that night. The next closes hotel was a couple of cities over and they aren’t really luxurious at all, they are a step above motels. It offers people a place to stay for those who need it and there is really nothing else I can do.

Is it a destination wedding? If not I wouldn’t worry much about it. A lot of people will probably just got home that night anyways.

I agree with your FI that it sucks! But really what is raising hell going to get you?

If they are booked they are booked! It is not like they are going to kick guests are out of the hotel to make room for your guests!

Could you talk to one of the other hotels about getting a really good rate?

Do you know how many of your guests may have already booked at the hotel?

Are there any local motels or B&Bs that would be better for some guests than the other hotels?
