@ElayneRunner:  I had an accomodations insert.  Went something like “for your convenience, we’ve located the following hotels” and listed off 2 mid-range hotels.  The bottom of the insert referred them to the website which contains more options as well block info that we arranged at 2 hotels.  We aren’t paying for any rooms, but we’ve atleast reserved 20 rooms nearby that they can book.

I just listed the hotels and the phone numbers.  I assume that most people will just use the internet to research.  If it was a long time ago where people would need to call each hotel and find this stuff, I may have included more information.  Since you can now google that information in five minutes, I trust them to find it.

We have an accommodations card but we also reserved a block of rooms at a hotel for a discounted rate and we wanted our non tech savvy family to have the info because they would never go online. 

Reserving a block doesn’t cost you anything, but it gives your guests discounts. We blocked 60 rooms at a hotel at a rate of $79 per night and the usual rate is $140. If they don’t like the hotel they can search on their own but we got an amazing rate for this block, better than any other hotel could give us.

@ElayneRunner:  I think what KristenLiz said is the norm.  We did a block of rooms at a discounted rate & included an accomodations card in the invite.  If cost of another inclusion in your invitation is a concern then just post the info on your website if you’re using one & use word of mouth as well.

We only did one hotel block, but I know others do blocks at multiple hotels at different price points so that is something to consider if you have some guests that stay in luxury hotels & some that stay in budget hotels, etc.
