We have hotel information on our wedding website- is it considered poor form to include our block rates on there? Or should we add them so our friends/family know? Our wedding is about 2 hours away from where we live so 90% of the people are going to get a hotel. The hotel for where we are actually having our reception requires a 2 night stay so most people will be staying at this other hotel. It’s one of those hotels that also has a water park/is kid friendly. Our rates are a lot lower than the actual rates for the hotel (I think because the majority of our guests are not going to use the water park) and there are tons of different choices for rooms…This is what I was thinking of putting:
Request *********** room block in order to get our rates. Hotel does not require a 2 night stay. Great option for families with kids (or people who are kids at heart!) Transportation to and from the reception will be available.
Rates for our block are below and based upon 2 guests:
Family Suite- $129 (6 guest max)
King Suite- $139 (4 guests max)
Kid Cabin Suite- $159 (5 guests max)
Whirlpool Suite- $159 (2 guest max)
Deluxe Family Suite- $229 (8 guests max)
Vacation Villa- $209 (9 guests max)
Luxury Cabin- $409 (18 guests max)

I think that’s perfect. We have something similar (only less options) on our website. It reads: we have reserved a limited number of hotel rooms at the luxurious Westin, located steps from BUsch Stadium and public transportation. The rate is $xyz per night (down from the regular rate of $abc). Parking is also discounted to $xx a night. To reserve, please call….”
people like to know the price before they call for a reservation! Plus, with your wording your cousins or bffs or whomever can go “hey, it’s be cheaper if we all shared a family room!” Or whatever.

definitely include the pricing- that way if guests want to compare (if they have points with another chain, etc.), they know what they’ll be looking at

@StL.Ashley: Thats one of the things I was thinking- it might be a good idea for friends or family to get a bigger room together! It just felt… i dunno, cheap? putting it up there.
@rebwana: makes sense- always want to be able to compare

@FutureMrsGG: I agree with PPs that it’s good to include the pricing so your guests don’t have to hunt down that info on their own.

I put on my website as well the rate of the rooms. That ways it’s a lot easier for them to make a choice of where to stay. Regardless, I still put down address and phone numbers of nearby hotels as well just in case the hotel I chose is not particularly their taste. Just whatever is easier for them!

We put our room block rates on our website. That’s the point, keep guests informed!
