The Holiday Inn East-Biltmore, just 1.5 miles away from Hidden River Events, offers our guests blocks of rooms at preferred rates (cheaper than any rate a guest will find online). In order to get this rate, notify your Event Manager who will then copy you on an official email to the booking agents at the hotel. You will not get the discounted rate by contacting the hotel directly.
If rooms are available, blocks will start at 10 rooms unless you request less. They will send you a contract with a code to give to your guests to use when they call to make reservations. As your rooms fill up more will be added to your block (if they are needed and available). Your blocked rooms will be reserved until 4 weeks prior to your event. At that time, all un-booked rooms return to the open market at the higher rates, so make sure your guests make their reservations ahead of time.
There is no pre-payment required to block rooms and no penalty if not all rooms are blocked.
