If you wait too long, there is a good chance the rooms will book up for the weekend leaving your guests high and dry, how awful! Just call around to all of the local hotels to get different price points and block off so many rooms per hotel to make sure you have enough. They will tell you what to tell your guests when they go to book their room to make sure they’re on your block.

Then What?

Once you have your hotel rooms blocked, inform your guests! Then it is up to them to make sure they get a room on time and are aware of the different price points. Make sure your guests have all the correct information for booking as well as the code or party name to book under. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to keep an eye on your block to see how many rooms are left, how many more you need, and of course, if all of the blocks are full! Also be sure to tell them if you are providing hotel transportation to all of the weekend festivities!
