I do know that the other guests staying there for this wedding are paying around $280.
There is also a place called Ghallagers, or something like that were other guests are staying for cheaper.
The cost of food is really high there. A gallon of milk is $8.... OMG

PS I asked my Wedding planner about that low price at the Westin--they got that rate only because it is smackdab in the middle of hurricane season combined with a group rate. I was quoted a group rate of $346 in June.

Ive never been to the Westin in St. John, but I have been to MANY westins and they are some of my favorite hotels. On St. John, the beach is man made, so that is a downfall, AND there are a lot of families. So very popular but not overly romantic as from what I hear Caneel Bay is on St. John, which is were we may end up staying for our Honeymoon.....Im still torn b/c I LOVE the MODERN look of the Westin, would like to know more about Caneel Bay which is MUCH larger, with some of the most beautiful beaches on St. John....7 beaches actually!!
The Ritz on St. Thomas ROCKS....we love it there...if you email me I can pull up some pics for you. This is where we are staying for the wedding. Mostly St. Thomas b/c it is easier for our guests....it is amazing! They have their own catamaran, beach activities, and well, it is the Ritz....I cannot wait to stay here!!
Problem with Ritz...$$$$$ if you want a wedding there. Now my FI and I are both doctors, and cannot pay what they want for a reception. Minimum of $5000 on reception ONLY and IF it is not sold out to another huge corporate event first, then if not, you wont get the spot until 3 mo b/f the wedding....I cant wait that long. Now this is for a spot where you can have dinner/dancing, ect. You can always just have dinner there and it will be cheaper....just depends on what you want...you have to call and talk to them.
Hope this helps
