I put everything – Hotel name, address, phone number, cost information, noted that there was only valet and that was an additional cost per day, also noted the particularly high taxes that would be added (thanks NY), deadlines to book, and how to book -ie say your with x party. I’d also include the free shuttle and continental breakfast. Ours had a shuttle, but I forgot to include it. As a guest, this would help me decide if I wanted to rent a car at the airport or not. I just wanted to be sure the guests had everything in one spot. I didnt want them to have to call to figure out if our hotel block option would be good for them.

I also listed hotels that we did not have a hotel block at, but which received good reviews. I did this in case we had a guest who wanted to stay in a different area, didnt like our hotel, or for other reasons.

I included links to yelp and tripadvisor as well, so guests could read reviews.

It seems like a lot of info, but really didnt take any space.

I just put name, address, phone number, and distance from wedding venue. I told them to call them for a reservation. Mine was a Hampton Inn, so I think everyone knew there was a continental breakfast and small details like that. But if I had a shuttle to/from the reception then I would definitely mention that as well.

I put the name of the hotels, a picture, the locations (with a links to google maps) a descriptions and contact information. I didn’t put exact prices, because their prices may change. Instead, I just put $ for the cheapest hotel and $$$ for the most expensive one (I gave them an option of three different hotels. Some of my friends probably just want to stay somewhere cheap, but many of the adults want nicer accommodations).

Like the PP I put everything; name, address, telephone number, price, and time for the shuttle to the venue. I also put a link to the hotel’s website for the guests to look around before booking.

I didn’t put reviews as they are both well known chains but that is a great idea.

@GreenEyedMoon: Yea we only had one hotel. I had my wedding on a farm, so it wasn’t exactly near any upscale hotels. The Hampton Inn to us is really nice 🙂 Plus, I knew the only people staying in the hotel would be family, and possibly some friends who lived 10 hours away. Everyone else (2-3 hours away) would either stay with friends or drive back home.

Please make sure you put the actual address with zip code and maybe the hotels website. I hate getting only a map or directions provided by the venue because i want to use my own navigation system or google maps, map quest ect. I think people should be able to do what works for them.  Searching on a small screen shot of a map for Valley Road in a small town with Valley Lane, Road, Street, Court ect can be frustrating and create problems.
