STD Etiquette Question

I'm planning to include hotel information (name, address, phone number) for our two room blocks on the back of our STDs.  Should I also include pricing?

    I didn't put the info on my STDs (space issue), but when I did list the hotel info anywhere, I did include pricing.  It's almost a way of reminding guests to mention they are in the block.

    I felt weird including pricing on both the STDs and invites, but I put pricing on our website. In both places I wrote "For more information about hotel accommodations, directions and wedding events visit blank.com"

    I'm not a fan of pricing on STDs or invites.  I'd put it on your website.  Just my .02...I've seen it done both ways.

    I didn't put hotel info on the STD at all but did include our Web site and on there I had the info and the pricing. I got a really good rate at the Wyndham and I wanted the guests to know that in case they were comparing it to other hotels.

    I didn't want to list the pricing on the STD, but we did say to ask for the "mylastname-hislastname wedding block discount". We did put the actual price on our wedding website.

    Thanks all!  I felt funny about putting pricing on the STDs too, but then the sample back that my stationer sent me had it on there.  I think I'll do as many of you suggested- just put hotel contact info on the STD, specify mentioning the LaFemme and L'Homme wedding when calling to book, and put a link to our website at the bottom.

    One of the hotels we blocked at gave us information cards for our guests that included the price. I designed a similar card for the other hotel and also included pricing. We put these in the envelope with our STD magnets. I didn't feel comfortable putting pricing on the invitations, but I knew my OOT guests would want to know the price differences (we purposely chose hotels in different price ranges), so I think the STD is fine.
