It will be ok – it’s great that the 2 hotels are so close to each other.  If they were on the other side of town, I could see how this is would be a problem – but a 1/2 mile is really not a big deal at all.

You might also ask the original hotel if they anticipate any other rooms opening up (perhaps from other blocks they have that aren’t filled).

we had 2 hotels and it worked great. I was at the one where we had our ceremony and the first night  we got a room at the other hotel for my husband. I was totally freaking out about hotel blocks too but it worked just fine 🙂

I have the exact same situation, only there are no other hotels! Well, I should say, there are other hotels but they’re super sketchy strip mall haven’t been cleaned in 20 years type hotels. Ugh. If I wouldn’t stay there, I’m not asking my guests to! Basically we warned everyone in advance (months ago) that the hotel was going to be filled up really fast and to book early. All our wedding party and families got rooms which is what we were most concerned about. I don’t have an Option B unfortunately but I’m not going to sweat it.

My 1st hotel block filled up about 3 months before I sent my invites. It was only family that fit in those 25 rooms. I contacted another hotel who just gave us a group code and an unlimited number of rooms so others are able to go there. Similarly they are about 3 blocks apart so I think it should be fine!

Good luck! Just remember everyone will find a place to stay!

We only have one hotel because we were able to get a good rate and get enough rooms. However, our original plan was to have two hotels at slightly different price points and different ammenities. I think that if the hotels are close, it’ll be fine, and people can still take the transportation to the first hotel and then walk to the other. I’d definitely block a second hotel though so that no one has to seek out lodging on their own.

The early bird gets the worm, IMO. You can’t be held responsible for the hotel arrangements of your entire wedding – obviously 20 rooms wouldn’t have originally been enough. If you have time and can get discounts at a second place, that’s great, but people are perfectly capable of getting their own rooms without a little discount!
