    I voted for the homewood suites b/c a friends wedding last year had them for the hotel and it worked out so great for all the guests. That being said, we had our wedding at a Marriott and had them be the sole hotel for eveyone – call the 800 number and talk to some of the corporate peoples – Sometimes they can/will make deals that the local ones cant/wont (especially when it means loosing a big ol blog of rooms to cometitors!). Not always – but its worth a call.

    Just a thought, if you’ve got a 3pm wedding – keep in mind that many of your guests might want to arrive the night before.

    I think I’d just give all of the information of all of the hotels and see what your guests would rather do.  If they’re like me, they’ll do their own research.  So maybe you can try to arrange a special room rate a couple of your fav’s?  Just make sure you won’t be charged if for some reason no one stays under those blocked rooms (that’s in the fine print sometimes).  If that’s not an option, I’d suggest the last option.  Its less expensive and people won’t be staying there for too long so they won’t have a chance to encounter much of what the negative review(s) mentioned.

    Honestly, I don’t know what the prices are like there since you are in NY but I wouldn’t want to stay at either of the first two at almost $200 a night.

    I would talk to someone in the sales department of the hotel and not someone at the front desk.  Also, ask about signing a contract, a lot of hotels will give you a lower price if you sign a contract saying they can release the rooms after a certain date, etc.  And you seem to have used some negotiation skills with the friend-of-a-friend girl, say you can get rooms cheaper else, but you would rather use them, etc.
