Yes.  We blocked rooms at our hotel venue and at a motel just a short walk away to give our guests cheaper options.

Just make sure you know all their rules on blocking rooms – do you need a certain percentage to be booked or you have to pay the difference?  Does a discount only apply to a certain amount of rooms blocked?  Do you have to put a fee down?  Stuff like that..

Kaites4:  My daughter’s hotel increased the size of the block, after it was full. I think they set aside 25 for each night; when we told them only a few would stay two nights (the rehearsal and dinner was the week before), they put more rooms onto the night of the wedding. I think they ended up with 3 the night before and 52 the night of the wedding. (Luckily their check-in was 3:00, for a 5:30 ceremony, or guests might have had to book 2 nights).

Yes, you can have hotel blocks at different hotels. That way people can have a choice of where they stay. It’s probably better for you to have courtesy blocks so that you have the rooms blocked but you won’t have the financial obligation for a certain percent of the rooms in the block. We are not staying or renting out facility space at either of the hotels where we have our courtesy blocks.

We blocked rooms at two hotels as well. Definitely doable, and a preferred option so you can give guests options at different price points.
