Book Your AMG 2008 Hotel
« on: May 12, 2008, 11:05:17 PM »
Hello Everyone,

Great news!  We can finally book our rooms for AMG 2008.  I am so sorry for the delay.  However, this has been out of my control and have been doing everything within my power to speed up this process.

Please call 1-800-343-7821 to make your reservation 

When making reservations, please refer to:

AMG - DENNIS BURNHAM GROUP FARF (13/08/2008-20/08/2008) // GJTLR


If anyone needs any assistance in making reservations, please do not hesitate to send me a private message. 

Please post below once you have made your reservation in an effort to help me manage our allotment of rooms efficiently.

Thanks
Dennis

Hi Dennis

Thank you so much for all your hard work.  I did call the reservations # today and found out the following:

1.  When asking for the group rate--it is not under AMG, we have to request the Dennis Burnham Group or use the confirmation code GJTLR.  (No wonder I was having a problem, I was only asking for AMG--that'll teach me to more closely read your instructions.)

2.  They are saying the group rate is only available from the 13th - 20th.  In a seperate thread you had posted that the group rate would be available for 3 days prior and 3 days after.  Not according to them.  They want $133.00 per night (inc tax) for anything before August 13. 

Was this a mistake on their part?  If so can you correct it?  (Sorry to ask buddy--but it's a factor in booking the two rooms I'm trying to book.)

RAB

Edit to add:  I probably should have asked this via PM so as not to clutter up this thread.  OOPS!

Thom and I have confirmed reservations for a 8/13 check-in and a 8/19 check-out (6 nights).

I had requested a Deluxe King room and was told that our block of rooms includes only Deluxe Double rooms.  The rate quoted was $84.00 USD per night which includes the 17% tax, so don't be alarmed.

I fully appreciate everything that Dennis had to go through putting this together as the language barrier was a definite problem when communicating with the reservation agent.  My call took 28+ minutes.

Now all our travel details are in place.  Just have to book accommodations for Miss Tucker at her grandma's kennel.

See you all soon.  Hugs, R&T

I've sent an email requesting the rate for pre/post to be corrected.  I'll let you know when this is done.  May I suggest locking in your rooms for the 13th - 20th and revising once corrected?

Thanks
Dennis

Thanks Buddy.

I did as you suggested and booked the two rooms for the 13 - 20, smoking, upper floor.

I'll add the additional days on the front end when you give me the go ahead.  (I hope I don't forget!!! ::))

Looking forward to seeing everyone there.   :-*

Hey Dennis!
You are hard at work.....again! Your efforts are so appreciated!

I noticed Ric's posting above......MrTallGuy here is....um....TALL!  So when I book a room it will be a King... I will have to pay more but I wanted it to be credited to the AMG block of rooms, etc.  Anything special I should do to accomplish this?

I booked my room today.  Arriving Aug 13 in the late afternoon (3:30 - 4:00) and departing on Tuesday Aug 19.  I will advise you to be patient when booking...it does take awhile (not nearly as efficient as an American hotel.)  Make sure you use the 800 number that Dennis gave us.  It is at the beginning of this thread and the name of the group "Dennis Burnham."  You may be on hold for awhile when you call (almost 10 minutes here) and when someone answers they are working for a group of hotels, so it is helpful to tell them the name of the hotel.

Looking forward to August!

THANK YOU DENNIS! for taking care of this so quickly.

I have amended Jan's and my reservations to their correct dates.  It should show a total of 20 nights for group credit, and 1 night outside the group reservation window.  (Jan is moving from her IAC hotel to the AMG hotel on the 9th).

I'm  getting excited!   ;D
Hopefully the rest of the group will book their rooms as soon as possible as you've requested.  UHUM!   :-*

I just want to know, do they charge your credit card for a reservation? Just need to know that little bit of info.


Edited to say that I have to do a little jig once or twice a day because I'm getting excited, too!  Love my cat hearder!

Hi Creighton, yes you give your credit card # to reserve your room...You get a reservation confirmation # and you give them your e-mail address and be sure to print out your hotel itinerary via e-mail which will contain all pertinent info.  I'm not exactly certain how much the initial charge is, I think in other cities we have visited they take a down payment and the rest is paid off when you depart.

Hope this helps and hope to see you in Mexico City.

Hey Creighton   ;D

The short answer is no.  They will not charge your card when you make a reservation.  They require a CC # to "confirm" the reservation only.  What that usually means is that in the event you don't cancel a "confirmed" reservation by the deadline, then they will charge your account for 1 night.

I've just checked the CC I used to confirm my reservation, and there has been no charge to my account.

Not only that, but they haven't even requested  an "authorization" for 1 night.  Meaning my "available credit" has not been impacted either (which is what happens when a merchant requests "authorization" but doesn't actually post a charge).

If you are concerned about making a reservation and being charged I don't think you have anything to worry about.

If you are concerned about making a reservation and having your "available credit" reduced because the hotel has requested an "authorzation" I also don't think you have anything to worry about.

The only thing that could happen is if you make a reservation, confirm it with your credit card, and then don't cancel within the defined deadline, then and only then, you might be billed for the 1st night.

Hope this helps.

Little Miss Mini and I are all booked up and ready to go.  1 room, non-smoking.  Checking in on Wed. 8/13 and checking out on very early on Monday 8/18.  I had Hubby call since he's fluent in Spanish and everyone he talked to spoke perfect English..lol.  Took a total of 10 minutes to book. ;D

  They asked if I cared about a low room or a high room.  I told them as long as they have an elevator to our room, I didn't care.  Does this mean that we're not going to be together, but spaced out all over the hotel?

Typically we're spaced out a little (insert joke here) but at a minimum smokers and non-smokers will be on different floors.

Ok, I finally booked our rooms.  The reservation guy said the room was for 'two deluxe queens'.  Oh, and we'll have two big beds, too!  :D  Ms. Bonnie is supposed to be in a room next to ours.  This way we can keep an eye on her; you know how those blonds can be! 

Dennis, thanks for your help with the room rates and everything else.  We really appreciate it.

I know you told us at some point, but I can't find it now.  What is the deadline for booking rooms at our rate?  Isn't it coming up?

I know there are still some dawdlers so they may need a reminder.
