i know its long… sorry..
Let me clarity how many girls would be staying with me.. I said there are 9 in bridal party, 10 counting me….And I called the Marriott today to go over the room again, because I can’t remember everything about the room and when I go to the website and do the 360 view I can only see one TV area and it turns and looks into the bedroom. The floor plan keeps showing me the wrong suite.. so I explained how the suite is set up, and would like some of your opinion on the types of sofa beds they told me they use, and also a type of futon mattress they said they use PLEASE. I’m clueless about this stuff, so just let me know if they are the “good quality” like the woman claims..the names and everything I bolded if you want to scroll down to just that part! THANKS.
Of my 9 Bridesmaid or Best Man & MOHs, 2 BMs have asked if they can stay with me the night before in the suite (because they its a far drive home, and they are just going to have to come back early in the AM)….there are 2 are from out of town and don’t have the money for a plane ticket, and money to rent a car plus money to rent the hotel room for two nights..(as they only planned on a plane ticket and wedding night at hotel) and they are both stressed as to what to do, so, I offered them the suite to stay in with me. I also told them about hotels that are close and cheaper than $169 but without a car and none of them cheaper enough to also rent a car, they quickly picked to stay in the suite.
My Maid/Matron of Honor is doing all the personal flowers as she is a floweriest and she has to be there after the rehearsal dinner and make/ help them, also she has to early in the AM, so I have offered her the suite, and she jumped at the offer!
I am going to bring it out to my other 3 Bridesmaid or Best Man that are local… although the rehearsal dinner and hotel are a good 45minutes for 1 and over and hour and a half for 2 in opposite directions! One is married so I sure she will either opt to stay with her hubby in a room to themselves, one has a bf and will do the same, and the other will probably pick the suite.
So counting me thats a total of 7 girls, that all know each other…like have been friends for the last 7years type friends, some over 14 years now and the oldest of my Bridesmaid or Best Man is 26!
Let me clarify a little on the suite.. its more like an apartment lol. I looked it up and called the hotel (Marriott) today to find out more info about the layout, sleeping arrangements, they allow up 18 adult guests to sleep there. It’s 1390sq ft. thats 140 sq ft bigger than my 2bedroom and 2 and a half bath condo !
It has 2 full bathrooms, one in the lobby but has two doors, u can enter from the lobby area and from another bedroom, it has a stand up shower in there, then theres a the master bathroom connected to the bedroom via two doors, there’s another room that contains a free standing Jacuzzi tube w/ a rainfall shower head above, it’s not big, just perfect to take a nice bath, and shower if needed…. so theres 3 showers total, 2 toilets.
As far as beds go…there’s the main bedroom has the king bed and the room has a sofa bed in it being that everything has been remodeled in this hotel, and its a suite, the woman told me the ALL of the sofa beds in this suite are the “upgraded ones”.. I had to write it down because I had no idea what she was talking about but all the sofa beds in the suite are: Brighton Queen or DOUBLE Size Sleepers w a Sealy Posture Royale Mattress (I HAVE NO IDEA ABOUT SOFA BEDS or mattresses really.. so PLEASE let me know if this is a nice one girls can sleep on comfy). Nice to know..Though.
There is also a big “sitting area” thats part of the main bedroom that contains another sofa bed, but full/double size.. not queen.. whichever size is just slightly less than a queen? Although it is part of the MASTER room, they have HUGE sliding wooden doors between where the bed is, where the “sitting area” is so they are seperated but both have access to the bathroom, and where the master bed enters the living room area/rest of the suit, theres another set of doors,and they are sound proof.
The living room has two sofa beds, 1 is double, the other is a queen. Where the 2nd TV is, by the bar there is a futon, again, the lady told me it was “top of the line” with a Pulsar Futon Visco Mattress, and is bigger than a normal futon (anyone know futons to let me know if this in fact a good mattress for futon? I looked it up and just say it cost like $700 without a frame included..but price to me means nothing..someone with knowledge- lt me know)
There is one other room, I did not know about that contains a queen bed,on the opposite side of the suit, its closer to the lobby because the bathroom that is in the lobby is connected to the room.. thats where the 2nd door opens up into, a smaller bedroom! That room has one of the doors to it also thats sound proof.
So without cot, there’s a king bed, a queen bed, 4 sofa beds (2 queen, 2 double or full), and 1 double or full size futon, so each girl would have her own bed/sofa bed…and some are such good friends & we’ve had sleep overs since we were 10.. will pass out in the same bed! And I told them all, lights out NO MATTER WHAT.. 10:45pm. With the sound proof doors, I will get the peace, and quite I need as will the other girls, and privacy.
And as one mentioned I am going to see my BMs all AM the next day, but I haven’t seen some of them in 4years..all 10 of us have not been together at the same time in 4 years.. that’s a lot to catch up on.. and I am excited to spend time with them over a short period of time.
And yes, I asked the woman on the phone about getting the room nice, cleaned, and ready for when we get ready for pics and what not, and since my parents are getting a similar suite that will be pretty close to mine (just a few doors down the hall)- we are doing room service in their room 1st thing when we wake up, and they will be cleaning the room while we eat..so when we get back it will be picture perfect. Lol.
