Maybe if they would hand out welcome/OOT bags free of charge?

How long they will hold the block for you (our how many weeks from your date will they release the block).

And most importantly, if there are any obligations of you if the rooms blocked are not entirely booked.

Make sure they don’t charge a fee if your guests don’t book up enough rooms.  Ask if you get a free room or suite if your guests do book a certain number of rooms.  Also basic stuff like whether or not they have blocks available for your dates, how many rooms you can book in a block, what the rate would be for your guests and how guests would go about booking to get these rates (phone, email, etc).  I’ll try to remember what else we asked…

You also might want to ask about parking and/or transportation options to your local airport.  If they have a free shuttle, for instance, that might be a bonus that puts one hotel over another.  And your guests will appreciate that!

What are their cancellation policies?  Are they willing to give your guests free internet?  Will they provide the bride and groom with a free room if enough guests book there?

– If your reception site is close to the hotels, Do they provide a shuttle service?  If so, how many runs will they do?  Does it cost extra if you want two runs?

– How many rooms can you block?  Do you have to pay anything if you block out 10 rooms and say only 6 get used?  Are you getting the rooms at a discounted rate?

– Are you and Fiance planning on staying at one of the hotels after the wedding – if so, do they offer a complimentary suite for the newlyweds?  Also, some places (the hotel that we have a block in) offers a complimentary continental breakfast and/or 15% off brunch for the next morning (if we want to do a small gathered brunch for the next morning).

Those are some of the questions I asked when I called hotels a couple weeks ago.
