I usually let Wendy handle the pricing with family/friends but she consults me on the pricing. During our Feb 2010 stay at BLT, we offered our friends Kim & Allan the opportunity to pay us equivalent to what they would book at POR which seemed like a win/win for them and us. But rather than have them pay us cash outright, they paid the cash equivalent for our DDP. In the end, we didn't get top dollar (which was fine because they're friends) but we covered some of our out-of-pocket expenses. My main concern was charging a price that would sour the friendship (no dollar amount is worth that) but we also couldn't give the rooms away for free either. I think we got the GC hotel for $350 or maybe a little less when we booked with a wedding, but definitely not too many deals offered by DL.
