under-booked hotel block...crazy attrition rates...HELP!!!!
We booked a total of 30 rooms over a Friday and Saturday (8/15 and 8/16) assuming that among our 70+ out of town guests, plus the wedding party, that we would be able to fill it. However, our guests are setting up DDs and staying with family and doing all they can to avoid staying in a hotel. We have less than 1 week to secure the block for the discounted rate and only 8 rooms are booked. We're reaching out to everyone we can to get a reservation, but with little luck so far. People are willing to make 1 1/2 hour drives home to avoid a hotel (rate is reasonable, hotel is the gorgeous Hyatt Regency). I love my smart, frugal guests but right now my fiance and I could end up paying about $7500 for these unused rooms...I never in my wildest dreams imagined that this would be a problem...please help
