I have procrastinated long enough! The hotels in San Francisco are not willing to do blocks unless I agree to pay for any unreserved rooms 2 weeks prior. I don’t want to make this commitment because all hotel rooms near us are $300-$450 a night. And most guest are not from out of town.
I wanted to mention where we will be staying in CASE someone wnats to try to get a room.
My hotel room is $450 a night ( I only paid $250 through hotwire) and I don’t want guests to be offended.
CAn I get away with writing :
Parking information with map
Couple will be staying at the Westin St. Francis on Powell Street
Or is that too random? It’s just that IF someone wants to stay in the city I’d want them to stay with us IF they were willing to shell out the $. I have already told my Bridesmaid or Best Man and Groomsmen by word of mouth to start looking via hotwire and other discount sites for good deals. So should I just leave that info blank?

I would word it as “Suggested Accomodations” and then list the hotel name and a phone number. I agree that “Couple will be staying at the Westin St. Francis on Powell Street” sounds really random.

I agree with amandaks86. I think it sounds really random to announce where you’re staying. Other than the bridal party, we aren’t telling anyone where we’re spending the night after the wedding.

I would probably list the two or three best hotel options, by price: budget, moderate, and the Westin. Something like:
Here are several of the hotels convenient to the reception site:
Budget Hotel, Mason St. ($99/night)
Boutique Hotel, O’Farrell St. ($199/night)
Westin St. Francis, Powell St. ($450/night) (bride and groom will be staying here)

With my invites, I included a list of the top accomidations with the rates beside with **rates may change** at the bottom. Alot of the prices were different, but this way it have the guest a choice and different options. And I’m definitly not telling people where we will be saying!!

You could just do it by word of mouth since it sounds like you don’t have too many out of towners, but something about listing where the couple is staying makes me think about old customs of checking to see if the marriage was consumated…

THANK YOU! Sometimes…I just hit a road block with things like this 🙂
I have seen other posts abuot listing 3 different priced ranged hotels but seriously the CHEAPEST is $300 a night…YIKES! So there are no budget freindly hotels in the area. Even the Holiday Inn is $200!! I do NOT consider that economical.
Thats why I don’t want to “suggest” any hotels…
maybe I will write “nearby hotels” or
” There are 19 hotels within walking distance
Westin St Francis (bride and groom will be staying here)” and that’s it? ugh. So, is it weird/ bad ettiquite to state on the invite info card where the couple is staying?

Ok, after reading the other posts I guess I am weird for wanting to tell my friends and fam where we will be staying 🙂 lol! I guess i will just do word of mouth. I am really getting to the point of over thinking EVERYTHING. SO type A. smh I have this idea in my head of having the after party at the hotel like we have been doing with all the other weddings we have been to this year. But maybe it will be nice to just get away from it all and just “be married” 🙂

@Angelz_love: That’s really surprising to me! Whenever I’ve stayed in San Francisco I’ve been able to find a boutique hotel near Union Square for $100 or even less a night. Granted they are a little bit close to the Tenderloin but still. Is something going on that weekend that there’s nothing affordable in the area?

I agree with other posters – maybe just something like “hotels in the area” and provide a list at different price points.

@Over the Moon: It’s def the time of year. ALL hotels told me it is peak traveling season so no one was willing to give us a block without us putting our card down for all the rooms. it doesn’t help that our venue is in the finacial district between fishermans wharf and Union Square! Pricey pricey!
