Hi all … we’re trying to set up hotel room blocks for our wedding in downtown area Long Beach, but so far they’ve all wanted us to pay for any unbooked rooms! A lot of our guests will be from out of town, so we were really hoping to get them some kind of discount and the hotels downtown are really expensive. Our reception is at the Reef and normally they recommend the Coast hotel next door, but they "may be closed for renovations" next April.
Has anyone else dealt with this? Any recommendations for hotels? Thank you!

There are lots of good hotels in Downtown Long Beach, try the Westin, Hyatt, Renaissance or Hilton. All of them are within a few blocks of each other, and just a quick 5-10 minute drive or water taxi ride away from the Reef. Good luck!

We ran into the same situation with hotels in that they wanted us to be responsible for the unbooked rooms in order to meet their guarantee. Upon further explaining the situation, and talking to a few different people, they granted us a discounted rate and a very low minimum.
