I think Karla's was even a tad bit cheaper because of her date also, there is an option where for $49 bucks per person you can get two meals per day and 2 for 1 drink (I think this is non-alcoholic though)
    Yeah, I'm sure what they gave me was the rack rate. Plus it's for 2008 (rates go up every year.)

      So where did you end up booking? did you stick with the Hilton?

        I haven't booked anything yet. I was planning on booking the Hilton but then we ran into some issues with their coordinator. She left for vacation before we could resolve them. She's back today though and I'm sure she's going through a TON of emails. I sent her an email and followed up with a phone call. I'm pretty sure she'll get back to me tomorrow and then we can book it.

        I better get this booked soon. There's still so much to do.

        Are you excited you booked the Westin?

            Hey Jen, yeah I'm super excited about booking the Westin. I'm just really glad they had availability for the date I wanted as my schedule is pretty tight with school & everything. I just think it's such a beautiful place and is so colorful which is one of the reasons I chose it because it reminds me of my personality. I only hope they can pull of a great event. It gives me that south beach/art deco feel which I love. We should keep in touch and swap notes since our weddings are one day apart......I'm hoping to get save the dates out by the end of August. So far the event sales coordinator at the westin has been great...I just finalized my contract last week and am awaiting being assigned a coordinator on site. I'm working with a wedding planner & traveal agent here at home to make my life a bit easier. What all have you gotten done so far? By the way, there is a great place in Manhasset to find a wedding dress if you haven't so far....it's called the Wedding Salon...that's where I found mine. This lady named Rosemary was so sweet and helpful. I PMd Karla so hopefully she gets back to me regarding some Westin tips.....that sucks that they quoted you like five something as the cheapest room. If you go back for another site visit let me know. I'm headed down in September.

              Thank you for the post! I am having my wedding at Hilton in May, and I have heard great things about Emiline so it is nice to see that recently confirmed.

                Jen - Sounds like you had a pretty successful trip. We enjoyed our wedding at the Hilton and all of our less affluent friends stayed at Marbella and loved it. It was perfect because it's a quick 5 minute drive away (though I wouldn't recommend walking - it's like a death march if you go via the beach!).

                All our guests loved the Hilton and the food was excellent (we did a buffet though). The music has to shut off at 10:30pm on the terraces but then we mioved down to the beach for a bonfire ($100) which was fun. We brought an iPod to play music but honestly by then we never even started it up.

                You can also serve smores down there if you'd like but again by that time everyone was so full (and drunk) that i don't think it's worth it.

                Let us know what you decide!
