Absolutely! We are happy to pass out generic favors to your guests during check-in at our front desk. For personalized favors or favors delivered directly to your guests’ rooms, there is a $4 / favor delivery fee.
May I reserve a room block?
To make securing accommodations for your wedding or special event seamless and easy, we offer discounted rates on contracted room blocks of 10 or more rooms. For contracted blocks, 80 percent of rooms must be filled per night to meet financial obligations. Contracted blocks require a 15 percent refundable deposit upon contract signing. Additionally, rates and availability of room blocks may vary by date, duration of stay, and number of rooms contracted. Blackout dates may also apply.
How soon should I reserve a room block?
We recommend reserving your room block between 8 months to one year in advance of your event. Although you may reserve a room block more than a year in advance, your guests cannot book accommodations until one year prior to your event. Additionally, we cannot quote rates without specific dates, approximate number of rooms, and duration of stay.
May I check into my room early?
Standard check-in begins at 4 p.m. and we cannot guarantee early check-in. If you plan on getting ready in your room on the day of your event, we recommend reserving your room for the night prior to ensure you have time to relax before your celebrations.
Will my guest rooms be in the same area?
Although we cannot guarantee that all your guest rooms will be in the same area, we are happy to note and accommodate your request to the best of our abilities.
