We have to get the minimum # of rooms... and I need to politely "encourage" our guests to book through our contact.
    This is the direction I am going in. The rooms are about $30.00 less a nght through the group rate and we get incentives for booking 10 or more rooms. Some of the incentives are they WE get an upgrade in room and all our guests get $100.00 credit at the hotel for food and drinks.

    That being said, I still have to ask what would happen if we don't hit the 10 rooms?? How is it working out for you? We have yet to book the rooms or sign any contract. Just wondering how your making out with getting people to book through the group rate.
