For your comfort and convenience, we have chosen the Hampton Inn in Overland Park (10591 Metcalf Frontage Road) for our wedding guests. We have a block of rooms reserved at the special rate of $72 per night. This rate include a continental breakfast, outdoor swimming pool and whirlpool, and even use of a nearby full-service health club. Rooms will be held at this special rate through May 15th, 1998.
To reserve your room, simply call Hampton Inn at 1-800-426-7866 and give them the confirmation number 87825240. No muss, no fuss, no cards to fill out and mail!
Important Note: A slight problem has developed with the block of rooms we have reserved at Hampton Inn. Despite initial verbal assurance that there would be both rooms with King-size beds and two double-beds in them available for us, our block of rooms currently includes only rooms with a single King-size bed. All of the rooms with two double-beds are currently being held for a soccer team that will be in town for a tournament. Hampton Inn believes that the soccer team will likely be canceling several of these rooms.
We suggest that you go ahead and book the number of rooms neccessary under the assumption that only the King-size bed rooms will be available - but be sure to let Hampton Inn know that you would prefer fewer rooms with two beds in them. Please keep us informed as to this arrangement as well (you can use the e-mail link above). Hampton Inn has assured us that rooms with two double-beds will be released directly to us as they become available. We will help get this sorted out for you the week before the wedding.
Hotel space in KC for Memorial Day weekend appears to be at a premium, so please do not wait for the double-bed rooms to become available to make your reservation. This is a "better safe than sorry" situation. Again, we will be happy to help get your reservation changed to double-bed rooms if that is your desire as soon as such rooms become available. Thank you for your patience with this little snafu!
