honestly I would want to see it. Sometimes pictures don’t tell the whole story. I find it odd that she thought it was weird that you were asking…

Not at all!  I feel like half the people who deal with brides have forgotten what customer service is!  If you’re spending $300 on a room where you’ll be getting ready for the most important day of your life, you have a right to see it first!

Not at all.  I went to the hotel where we did our room block so I could take a look at their presidential suite before I booked it.  I think that’s totally normal.

I don’t think it’s odd, at all.  You’re shelling out your hard earned money, you ought to be able to see the place first.

@Ms.Charleston Pearls:  If she’s being that way, I wouldn’t give her my service.  You’re a customer and she should treat you with respect, not laugh you off.  I totally understand wanting to get the vibe of the room and see how things would be situated.

Not at all.  Pictures are nice but things can be changed.  The room might be smaller than you’d imagined or there are practical things to check like how many sinks are there? Mirrors?  Outlets?  Plus, I agree the “feel” is intangabale.. you just have to go and imagine the day in your head.. can you see yourself there?  Where would all your stuff go?  Not all of that can be surmised by pictures.

youre not alone! theres just something different about seeing something in person! i agree with you.  Pictures dont seem to do a space justice and can sometimes make it look either better or worse than it really is! 

A good example of this is  reception facility up the road from me.   The pics online make the place look AMAZING but I know they made it look way more than what it was.  It sits on the corner of a big intersection and so all you see are cars going by and there HUGE parking lot in front that all but swallows up the front of the facility.  But somehow they pictured a lavish backyard with lots of ground and space and ….a whole lot of other things that it just didnt have. haha.  its has good food though, so ill give ’em that. 🙂

You are not being unreasonable at all…the saleslady is!  I would want to see it in person.  In fact, Fiance and I make it a point to see everything in person regarding the wedding.  It all started when we found our first possible venue in Chicago.  It was a historic hotel and the pics online were stunning…we were ready to sign.  Then we visited in person and got the real story…wallpaper peeling off the walls, chipped paint, dirty carpet.  In the pics, the place looked brand new and beautiful.  In person it was drab, and the hotel was like a ghost town…not one guest in the lobby and the front desk was empty for like 10 minutes while we waited to say “we’re here to see the ballroom.”  Needless to say we left and now we see EVERYTHING in person down to the hotel rooms/suites for our hotel block.  

If she won’t show you, I would look elsewhere.  Like some PP said, the room could be tiny, or look nothing like the picture.  All they need is a good photographer, forgiving angles, and photoshop!

Not at all! They showed us all the different types of guest rooms when we looked at our hotel!

Of course you should see it! I don’t know why she was so dismissive on the phone, that is sort of rude IMO.

If I were you I would want to see it too. I think SHE is the one who is weird for thinking you are weird for wanting to the see the room.

What kind of people do they deal with that people just say ok take me 300 bucks and I dont care what the room looks like, geez……
