Room Blocks

If there is availability then there is an opportunity to secure a room block through the group sales department of your chosen hotel or resort. Your group sales contact will likely give you a timeframe to market the room block rate and location to your guests. You will want to make sure your guests know that in this town hotels book up quite quickly. This is important, particularly if you would like your guests to stay in the same complex OR if you want to organize a room block. During the off-peak season in Wisconsin Dells, acquiring a room block for your guests comes more easily and with less stress.


Discounts (and the Two-Night Minimum)

Hotels differ on their policies regarding group rates and discounted room blocksFor example, most hotels in Wisconsin Dells require a two-night minimum during their peak season.  However, most will offer a group rate discount of 10% on the two-night stay. Conversely, that same resort will gladly accept room blocks (if there is availability) with no minimum stay during off-peak season months and will also give a discount of 10%.  It is best to contact each Group Sales department, find out exactly what their expectations are, and book accordingly.
