Sonesta St. George Hotel - Luxor

Planning

Planning Schedule
Sonesta St. George Hotel Luxor encourages planners to outline a preliminary program at the initial contract signing phase. Upon receipt of said contract, our catering & conference management department will send a letter of introduction to the appropriate party providing contact information and a detailed description of our services.

We invite the planner to contact the hotel at any time prior to arrival. Our conference service department will make an initial telephone call approximately 60 days prior to the group's arrival. At that time, discussion will commence on a specific itinerary of activities and locations of meetings and functions.

Once the hotel receives a tentative itinerary, we will send a preliminary group agenda of the program. A copy of this program will be provided to all hotel departments. Final itinerary will be completed 20 days prior to arrival, so that it may be reviewed at the hotel's weekly staff meeting.

Pre-Convention and Post-Meeting Review
Group meeting planners are requested to meet with the director of catering & conference management prior to the arrival of the group to review all final arrangements. We recommend scheduling a pre-conference department head meeting with planners of groups exceeding 100 rooms. A post-event meeting is always requested at the convenience of the meeting planner, to review any comments regarding the hotel's performance.

Group Billing Instructions
Upon receipt of agreement, the hotel provides a billing instruction form to determine and clarify how the sleeping accommodations, room charges, food and beverage functions, recreation, incidentals and miscellaneous charges are to be settled.

The billing instruction form provides an opportunity to specify exactly what charges are to be billed to the master account and who is authorized to sign. All accounts are payable at checkout.

Once the conference is being held at the hotel, every effort will be made to present food and beverage function checks and all other charges to the authorized person for signature prior to posting to the master account. Our billing coordinator will be happy to meet with the meeting planner prior to the meeting to review billing instructions and is available by appointment to review the master account prior to the group's departure.
