Hi ladies! This is my first post so please forgive me if I don't use the right lingo/abbreviations! I am getting married in Little Rock in May and I have a block of guest rooms reserved at the Peabody. I knew there was talk about it being sold to Marriott but I didn't know when everything was going to happen. Well, apparently it's happening this week. I just read that this Wednesday is the head chef's last day, along with the general manager and several "other managers." The name and ducks stay for another 30-60 days but then those go too. The article also said the new owners are planning $16 million in renovations and upgrades but didn't say when those will start.
I'm slightly freaking out! If the new Marriott raises their rates, will they still honor the rate the Peabody quoted me and that I've shared on our wedding website? And how can I find out if there will be construction going on while my guests are there? They haven't hired a new general manager yet so I don't know who to ask. Any brides been through this before and can tell me that it all worked out fine???
