We have a block of 10 rooms but tomorrow is our final day where we can release the rooms without penalty. We've got 6 of the 10 booked which means that we would need 4 more to book and I think its just too risky to hold these rooms because if we hold them and they don't book, then we will be penalized. So, we've opted to release the rooms but the flip side to this is that we will now have to pay for the cocktail hour which will be $400-600. Its unfortunate but there is nothing that we can do about it.
My WC sent me a 'wedding rooming listing' spreadsheet which she has asked me to fill out with all the guests booking information and send it back to her. I guess this is how they track the guests that are part of your group when you don't have a group contract.
I think we need a Moon Palace Economic Stimulus Plan.
