What happens after I sign the function agreement for my event? Who can I contact with questions about my upcoming event? Our Catering Team will contact you approximately 45 days prior to your event to discuss the following items: menu, setup arrangement of meeting or banquet room, audiovisual and equipment needs, exhibits or displays, and special needs pertaining to your event. Until then please do not hesitate to contact the team member who initially coordinated your event. They will have the greatest understanding of your upcoming event and are eager to help. When can I make menu selections for my upcoming event? When will the hotel guarantee my pricing? We always suggest that, when possible, menu selections are made within the season of service. Prices are subject to change, however we will guarantee final banquet pricing up to 90 days prior to your event. Do we need to provide a minimum guest count? Yes, the hotel will ask for a guaranteed minimum guest count 72 business hours prior to your event. This will be the minimum number of guests for which you will be charged. The hotel will prepare for an additional 5% guest count. The final number charged will be the greater of your guaranteed count or actual number of guests. How is payment expected for my event? We have included a credit card authorization form with your function agreement. Please complete and return this form with your signed agreement. The hotel accepts all major credit cards and deposits made by cash, card or check. An application for direct blling is available in certain circumstances.

The team member who is coordinating your event will outline this in detail on your function sales agreement. Can we hang decorations on the walls or ceiling? We also have some special displays that will require assistance. How will these be handled? Our Catering team will be happy to assist you in planning the decorations for your event. We ask that all decorations be approved in advance of your event to avoid damage to walls, ceilings or carpet. The hotel reserves the right for staff to handle electrical needs, the use of ladders and other items which may result in additional setup fees. We have the capability to offer almost any service if coordinated in advance. What happens if I cancel or down-size my event from the original agreement? When you authorize your function agreement you agree that you have reviewed our Cancellation & Policies page. Please take a moment to review this document and ask your Sales Representative to clarify the details. If you down-size or cancel a definite event the hotel will charge fees that vary from 25% up to 100% of your anticipated charges, depending on how close you are to the date of the event. If you anticipate major changes to the scope of your agreement please contact your Sales Representative as soon as possible.
