Room Blocks

We offer a small block at a discounted rate to couples hosting their wedding with us in the Main Hall. Most nights require a two night minimum stay. Our hotel rooms typically go on sale about 6 months out.

Due to the huge number of inquiries for wedding blocks and the small number of rooms that we have here we simply cannot meet the demand and only provide room blocks to couples hosting their wedding reception at the hotel.

A 50% deposit is due with the signing of your contract.
Wythe Hotel accepts checks, money orders, and all major credit cards.

What is your cancellation policy?

Please inquire with the events department on our cancellation policies. Details will be outlined in your contract.

The Ides Bar as an After-Party spot?
