    Our TA just got the final contract for our group of rooms and the rates are acutally lower than we were origionally quoted!

    It sucks because I JUST sent out a post card with "actual rates" but I don't think $20 per night would make or break anyone...just maybe make them a little happy when they book :)

    Origional Prices we were quoted (per night) & new prices
    Single - $412 now $397
    Double - $452 now $422
    Tripple - $654 now $609
    Quad - $840 now $780

    Like I said, not a huge difference...but at least it's something!

            Well $20 adds up for a several night stay. Is that a AI?

              That's great news! It might sound sneaky, but I would consider keeping the extra to cover an additional party or something there. $20 to each person is not a lot spread out over a week (or however long) but if you have to pay $1000 for a reception, that's a lot out of your pocket. Just a thought...

                Yes, it's AI...and the resort is going to lose money with our group!!!! Most of our friends plan to be trashed from morning to night LOL I told them that's fine as long as they can function the day of the wedding!

                Our TA is going over it with a fine tooth comb right now. I agree that every bit counts! Especially since we have some singles with money issues who want to come and share rooms...this way, the Quad works out to $198 per person per night...All food, drinks, taxes, gratuities included (although, people usually tip anyway, but they don't have to)

                  We're kindof doing that already with the TA :)

                    We thought we would get our monies worth too, but we had a hard time getting drunk. Not sure if it was watered down booze or too much food in the belly! LOL

                      Haha, we learned during our 2004 trip, that a couple of tips in the beginning on the night help to get your drinks strong! I actually had to have FI go back and get me a soda so that I could dilute my drink, it was SOOO strong I couldn't drink it!!!!!

                      We have some big drinkers as friends! :)
