A Hotel Block is an agreed upon amount of rooms which the hotel will hold for you and your wedding guests to reserve. You will require a Hotel Block for your wedding if you are going to need more than (9) hotel rooms.
If you have guests that are coming from out-of-town, you need a room block. Elovaire works with the hotels on your behalf to provide you with the best discounts and concessions.
When you choose Elovaire to assist in your hotel search, you get the full buying power of Elovaire behind you- we are connected heavily within the industry. Due to this, the hotels prefer us and our business, and this helps you get the best rates and availability.
Finally, that buying power means that we can negotiate contract terms that fit your needs as well as competitive rates and concessions.
Contracts can be intimidating and the Elovaire team will make sure you are comfortable when it comes time to lock in the rooms. Hotels usually offer two types of contracts (depending on how many rooms you need). When you sign a Courtesy Contract, you are not held financially obligated if you do not book the rooms that you blocked. Standard Contracts usually require you to book a "minimum" amount of rooms and the contracts usually have an attrition clause.
Elovaire will work with the hotels to make booking hotel rooms under your block seamless. Hotels usually provide a customized link, code, or phone number you can send to your guests to reserve the rooms and get the discounted rate
The sooner you book, the better rates and concessions we can negotiate for you. We recommend you reach out to Elovaire as soon as you know where and when you are getting married.
Elovaire will make sure payment options are outlined in the contract and fit your needs. Your guests can reserve the rooms with their own payment method or you can create a master account to pay for room charges.
