I want to reserve a block of rooms for guests at a hotel downtown, like the Hilton or the Westin. To do this, their websites make you fill out a pricing request and even ask you what your budget is for guest rooms. There isn't anything (as far as I can see) that states that you would need to cover the cost of these rooms if they aren't booked by guests, but the wording of the questions suggests that MY budget somehow comes into play.
For instance, if I reserve a block of 25 rooms at the Hilton for the wedding and only 15 of them are actually reserved by guests, would I be on the hook for those extra 10 rooms? Has anyone been through this with these hotels before? I'm having trouble finding information to confirm or deny my suspicions. The last thing I need before leaving on our honeymoon is a bill for a bunch of unused hotel rooms! haha
(For the record, we also have a block reserved at another downtown hotel and they simply told us to tell our guests to reserve by one month prior to the wedding or else all the rooms would be put up for sale again to the general public. I just can't tell if this is also how it works with the other hotels. At the hotel we booked, we literally took all 20 of their last remaining rooms so I want to book another block at a different hotel just in case!)
