Sheraton Rant

Recommended Posts

We are having our reception at the d'Cortez restaurant at the Sheraton. They said that we could choose from the d'Cortez menu or the regular banquet menu. We thought the food on the d'Cortez menu was much more interesting and reasonably priced so made choices from that. Well, they are now saying those are not the prices - they have to charge more because the restaurant will be closed for our group. Which is why they are requiring a minimum spend (a quite large one too by the way) of our group! Now we have to go re-visit the entire menu and drink choices...argh! So annoying!

How many guests are you going to have? I would totally fight it.. What difference does it make if you fill the resturant for an "x" amount of time versus them taking the chance on not filling every seat. what day are you having your wedding? Seriously PUT UP A FIGHT..

They sent their menu, with prices, to my WC and we made selections from that menu. So yes, I consider that in writing.

We will have about 80 people. In order to have the restaurant private, we need to spend at certain amount.

It bothers me that the reason they give for raising the prices is that the restaurant is closed. We're already guaranteeing their revenue so that should be a non-issue, right?

I agree with you, it sounds to me like they are trying to double-dip.

hmm, how many people does the DeCortez hold? So I can see both sides if you want them to close their doors for your wedding party for a certain amount of time.. Say several hours for dinner, dancing and such.. then I guess I could see why they would want to charge some sort of fee. (because they would loose out on other people wanting to dine there) But with that said I feel that you should be able to work out a deal where maybe you will be charged extra but not a crazy amount. Once a resort knows it's your wedding everything is charged extra, so just keep going back and work out a number that both of you can agree on.

I think you should fight it. That's annoying that they told you one thing and now they are changing their tune. If they want to charge extra money fine, but they should have told you about that from the onset. See if your WC can fight this for you. Good luck!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
