    I would just list the hotel that you have blocked and as much info about that hotel as you can, ie benefits, phone #, address, special rate, room block deadline.  If people need additional hotel options, they will probably reach out to you on their own.  Or if they’re smart enough they will google the area and find other hotels on their own.  This is what we had on the front of our cards.  We didn’t add anything about the shuttle or free breakfast because we added our wedding website to the info card.

    Keep it simple- give them the room block, and the special info (shuttle/breakfast.)

    @Future Mrs. Huban:  I agree! 

     It might be nice to book blocks at at least two hotels though, if possible at different price points.  (depending on your crowd that is…).  I booked blocks at two, but had a third one listed on my wedding website.  (In my case all the hotels in my town offered a similar rate, the third one was a little cheaper, but offered a lot less, so I decided it wasn’t worth my time to block it).  If your guests don’t like your hotel option they can always get on google and find what they prefer themselves.

    Yep, give them the hotel you blocked rooms at, the method for reserving a room (website, phone number, group code, etc), the deadline for booking at the discounted rate, and a few perks about the hotel (shuttle, breakfast, proximity to venue, etc).  If your guests want to book at another hotel, surely they know how to do that.  I don’t think you need to provide options.
