Hotel blocks for weddings, business meetings and other events allow guests to stay in the same hotel (or couple of hotels), which makes things like planning and transportation easier. And it's more fun for your guests, who may want to mingle and enjoy their own after-party.
We are able to negotiated the room rate for your block. It might save everyone some money.
A hotel block is a set of hotel rooms that has been set aside for a group or event at an agreed upon rate. The smallest block typically starts at ten rooms.
