If rates, deposit, penalties are exactly the same, I guess everything else is like icing on the cake. some examples that your guests would appreciate is how convenient parking (price of parking), transportation to and from reception, is. How late restaurant/bar opens? Is there breakfast? Location of the hotel relative to other things in the local area? wireless?

Make sure that they are actually saving rooms for you, not just providing a special rate.   Maybe this is obvious, but I thought a hotel was saving a block of rooms for us, but all they were doing was giving a special rate to people who booked and mentioned our wedding.  Yikes!

This wouldn’t be a deal-breaker, but it is good to find out whether your guests have to pay for parking, and also whether they will charge you for distributing Out of Town bags.  We’re using Marriott, and they don’t charge, but I have heard some places do.
