Ohio-Columbus

Hotels

So....a week or so ago, I posted a thread about hotel blocks. Well, apparently, the weekend of July 9th, there is a "florist convention" that apparently books up almost every downtown and campus area hotel! I think I called over 15 places and only 3 would be able to accommodate the room block. We are supposed to get the contract today....so hopefully that goes off without a hitch. And....the room block covers the rest of the hotel rooms in that hotel! I never thought the room block would be a complicated part!

Side note: I started to use experience columbus, but I started to get worried (after receiving 4 emails from hotels saying they were full) and just began calling places again. If I would have been more on top of things and talked to experience columbus before, I probably would have had a better result.

    Seriously, I think Columbus should have their own special wedding planning timeline that says "If you need downtown Columbus hotel blocks, start making calls the day you get engaged".  

    I feel like there are more weekends with conventions/big events in this town than not!

    I agree. We have contacted Meg Gordon, too, finally. We are Sunday of Race for the Cure weekend and getting information on hotels has been harder than I thought. Em, were you the one who suggested Hyatt Place in Grandview? They were actually great at getting back to us so far.

    Any good news yet on your block, nnoble?

    Yes, we got the confimation and the group code today! Woo-hoo! I can send my save the dates knowing my family will be able to get that information! Whew! We are using Hilton Downtown. They have a shuttle to and from the airport. But, now we are determining how to get people to and from the wedding location. We may be using the Bexley Beat....as I am not renting a limo company's shuttle and paying for the 9 hours we aren't using it!
