Frequently
asked questions

I don't know how many people will be traveling in our group yet. Can I still make a block?
Yes! Good news, you don’t need to know the exact number of rooms that you will need. A rough estimate will do just fine. 
My guests are excited about staying at the same hotel. Will our rooms be right next to each other?
Generally, hotels assign specific rooms day of. While we can't ensure that your rooms are together in advance, we recommend calling your Venue Report travel agent or the hotel the day before you book to place a request for the block to be together.

What if I am going to book for my group, but want each individual guest to pay for their stay?
Not a problem! Simply book a group reservation with your credit card and indicate to the hotel in the group contract that you want each guest to pay for their own room. At the reservation cut-off date, you may need to indicate to the hotel the final number of rooms and nights your group needs. You would also need to send the hotel a rooming list so they can verify the guests in your party and assign rooms to them.
