No worries..i have booked my wedding with Hyatt to be held in Nov 08 period. Have placed deposit and gotten the pricing (overall) for one table so hope that can help.
Their perks is decent,wont say its fantastic cos they are rather strict..cant nego much unless u decide to forgo some stuff.
I only had 19 tbls so nt holding at the ballroom but at camelia room...cosy and intimate i presume..i wanted weekday but what to do, my father had a say in it as well...sigh..
yeap,had to pay slightly less than 1.1k for each tbl
thanks for yr reply.
I saw camelia room but i didnt like it . Sorry but it is too old and dim. Why dun u take the Sir Stamford Rm...they cater for 200 guests., u juz have to add another 10 of yr frens...to make it 200.
r u going down to the bridal promotion at hyatt this sat?
cos my AD date is too popular and there were probs securing a good venue. Maybe diff perception,i like cosy and intimate settings (warm lights vs white lights sorta analogy). Did u see a real wedding setup when u went dwn? I saw a black and red theme with the petals strewn on the table,plus cute bows tied to each seat which made the whole place look rather classy...
Hi everyone, I went down to Grand Hyatt for their bridal showcase today and I quite like their package and it still has the date I want (jun '09). Tried its food too and it is good! However the only minus point is that the magnolia + vanda rooms have pillars. The pillars are quite big actually. I dunno if guests will be put off by them but the catering manager actually told me that they will put 2 LCD tv to show a live telecast of what is happening on the stage for those ppl who are blocked. Anyone intending to book or has booked magnolia + vanda room?
i didnt like Magnolia/Vanca and even the camelia ballroom cos they have big pillars. Also their mosiac is black and very old. The lights arent attractive at all and it looks so old. plus it is black in color and very dim.
I'm actually looking at 30-32 tables. And I do not want to max out the no. of tables in the Sir Stamford Room cos it might be very squeezy. So only magnolia/vanda rooms fit. Yah.. my FH also feels that the rooms look old and dim. Didn't sign up with them but got them to reserve for us for the time being as we might be exploring other hotels with pillarless ballrooms.
Hyatt can hold 5 days for me. Today's the deadline and I'm finally going for it after much deliberation. Intercon is very ex esp on an auspicious date, and I heard that the service and food is not really worth the price. Anyway I'm just gonna play around with the layout of the tables to minimize blockage as I'm taking just the min no so I won't need all the space. Hopefully with the tables, they will "brighten" up the place. =)
Oh.. by the way Sir Stamford Room will be undergoing reno during Jun '09 that period.
I wanted to have SRR also, but i was not told it undergo reno. But I know Hibiscus is. I dun like when I sign a contract I like to function room, then they go for reno, u know the feeling and rest are very different...also most of the sales will tell u they do not have the mock up layout for u to see
I'm having my AD in jun '09. So initially wanted to change to SSR but the manager told me that it would be undergoing reno during that time. Think they are doing up the rooms one at a time. Anyway I checked ur earlier post you're having ur AD this nov right? so SSR will still be the same cos reno is next year. Katrina, the manager, emailed me the floorplan and layout of the tables for mag/van rooms without any hesitation. So I'm now able to plan where to place the tables to avoid the pillars =)
Hyatt is one of the hotels that I have shortlisted.I'm meeting the Hyatt co-ordinator Marie, this fri.
Having a wedding lunch in June 2009, heard comments that Hyatt's food is not very gd, but nevertheless I'm going down to take a look coz I like their package the best so far..decent pricing too..
I find Intercont way too ex...
Hmm......but it's also an 8 course meal...
and the price is abt $700-$900 for all the hotels..
Panpac is near $800,Marriot is abt $750,fullerton abt $840,Chjimes is ex,$900+,Intercont also ex...
no choice is you want a hotel
The price will be near $1000 or above for dinner..
i wish to have my WD in hyatt too in nov 2009..haben been able to go down and see..but jus to check with u guys whether is there any piliarless room in hyatt?? and how will be the cost like for weekday dinner for abt 38 tables?
Hi, Im actually looking at 8 Dec which is a Monday for dinner.
I think Hyatt is good in regards to the corkage, but what they offer in the package doesn't seem quite comprehensive. Only 1 LCD is provided & can only choose that between beer. Which is both required... Hmmm....
