What a great service! I had no idea how to go about booking hotel room blocks for my wedding and Skipper made it so easy. They walk you through step by step and are always available for questions. My booking agent was Rob and he was great. He kept me informed every step of the way and was very quick with answers to my many questions! I have a great rate at a great hotel and I know my guests will be so pleased. I highly recommend using this service and take some of the stress off wedding planning!

Skipper is an amazing resource. It easily gives you hotel options in your area and does all the initial inquiries. Why do all that work when there is a service that will do it for free? McGowan Day was very nice and responsive on the quest. My only note is that once a hotel was selected it felt like it would be easier if I could call the place and finalize directly instead of going through Skipper. Though I’m starting to see they did some chasing for me as far as follow up. And it overall is just very comforting to know I can go to this resource if I have any issues. Thanks Skipper!

My booking agent, Alina could not have been more helpful! I usually received responses to within an hour and she answered all my questions and gave advise when asked. The website is extremely easy to use and I would highly recommend this service! It made finding hotels and booking our room blocks stress free!

We worked with Michael to secure the hotels for our wedding next summer. His work was INCREDIBLY helpful. Skipper is so user friendly, and Michael was responsive and efficient in getting our hotel contracts secured even when the weekend of our wedding has several events meaning hotels are hard to come by. All in all, fantastic service! Definitely recommend to anyone planning a wedding and looking for help setting up rooms for folks!

Super super impressed! Hate to say it, but I'm one of those people who dislikes talking to people over the phone and would much rather schedule appointments or pay for things online. Skipper does a fantastic job at ensuring that all your questions are answered within 24 hrs and your advisor is a REAL human! Devin was my advisor and she was so friendly and helpful when getting back to me. Choosing my hotels, comparing rates, adjusting amount of rooms I needed to signing the contracts - all of that was so simple and easy! Definitely recommended!

Using Skipper was so easy! I had a consultant who emailed me and even reminded me about expired offers. He was very professional and personable, which I did not expect from a third party website. Not all hotels I requested were able to accommodate my request, but the offer we did end up getting was great! I honestly did not expect this to work, but I am very pleased and relieved to not have to do the negotiating myself!

Great service! I was able to block rooms for my guests for free at hotels near my wedding venue with no hassle! Skipper did all the leg work! I only had to supply the basic info & choose hotels from a list of hotels that met my criteria! I'll definitely be using this service again in future when I need to block more rooms for a big event! Thank you so much Skipper!!!!!!

This idea and website is great! The site is easy to navigate and very informative. Devin is my contact for my bridal room block, and she did a fabulous job with answering questions, sending updates, contract agreements, and more. I will definitely share this site with other brides. Thank you guys! Huge stress reliever in the midst of wedding planning.
