How to Encourage Guests to Book at Host Hotel?
Posted 03 August 2009 - 03:13 PM
We have worked out a deal which we beleive should be VERY attractive to our guests. We have also scheduled a lot of events on property so to encourage people to stay and book the AI and not have to worry about cabs and stuff.
However, does anyone have any suggestions on how to really really encourage people to do this? While other hotels may be cheaper in the area...the one we are at is a million times nicer, and based on the amount that our group drinks makes it a cheaper option for them. They should figure this out on their own but how can I make sure they do?

There are other places to stay in Puerto Vallarta, but just be aware that you can only enter the Dreams property if you are staying there or pay a $70 per day guest fee. We will spend most of our time at the resort pool, bars, and restaurants to maximize the time with our guests.

I could just not mention other options, but then I feel I would run the risk of a guest being put out $100+ by not giving them full information. It is not in my budget to cover these day passes and I don't think it is right, considering I would not have put money towards anyone's cost to stay at the resort where the wedding is hosted.
"Of course, you can stay at another resort or a hotel but will need to purchase a day pass to access the resort for the wedding celebrations. More info to come. "
Is that a good idea? I have not sent them off yet. I want them to stay at the resort and I'm feeling guilty for wanting them to stay at The Royal/Gran. That is why I picked The Royal/Gran because Gran is cheaper and they can come to my wedding at The Royal. I am not paying for any day passes, that's for sure.

I was contemplating paying for guest passes for the people I REALLY want to come but cannot afford to pay for my resort, or getting a condo for people who cannot afford to stay in the resort and then having them pay the guest pass. I don't know!!! aghh!!!! Are you really not paying for the guest passes?
