If you have a contract or anything in writing at all, I don’t see how they can back out of it without you being able to take legal action. I would remind the manager of that.

One thing to say in situations like this is “I will not hesitate to contact the better business bureau.”  It tends to always get things taken care of.  I would speak directly with the manager.  If he continues to threaten you continue to ask for his supervisor, and then their supervisor, and so on and so forth.  You just have to be persistant and not back down.  Also – document everyone you talk to and when and how (phone/in person) and the information they give you.

If there is a signed contract and money has been paid, you have the right to retain legal action. We handle these cases all day at work and the business will almost always without doubt lose.

I’m sorry this is happening 🙁 Do you have any emails or a contract or anything from the girl you made the block with? If you had ANYTHING in writting it might help. I hate that places do this when they have the opportunity to make more money. I hope that things work out for you

If you are going to be a doctor this will be great practice in being assertive.

Just tell him that you understand his predicament, AND that you are sorry you are not able to give up your block.

If you want you could extend an offer that if he is able to reserve your guests comparable accomodation in a similar hotel in the area, at the same rate and is prepared to discuss some sort of compensation for their trouble, you might be willing to negotiate.

@Miss Sequoia: ER RN so assertiveness is a necessity. But delegation is a necessary skill also.

I have done some convention planning- you just have to stand your ground-empathize with their problem but don’t ket them offload it to you.

Oh good!!  I am really glad it worked out for you.  Good for you for standing firm.  I am not always a firm person either, so I know it’s not fun or easy. 🙂
