I posted yesterday about the hotel we want to book at having a crappy policy (90% rule, if you book 10 rooms, 9 have to be full. If under 9 then you pay for the remainder and NO cancellations).
That really sucks. We’re getting married at Caffe Luna and that was the Marriott. Has anyone else gotten married downtown and can recommend a hotel that can handle 30+ rooms without such a crappy policy? Ideally, I’d like it to be within walking distance, but I’ll settle for not a crappy hotel!

My FI took care of the hotel, but I think the Sheraton downtown has the same crappy policy….. It may be a little better-you have to fill 80% of the rooms that you have blocked. They do theirs by “room nights” so, if you block 20 rooms for a Friday and Saturday night, you’d have to have 16 booked on the two nights combined-not each night. We had looked at the Doubletree near NC State, but it is not walking distance from Caffe Luna. It was nice, but not as convenient. The Clarion downtown never even contacted us even though we called them several times. I took that as a bad sign.
