Hi Family and Friends,
We need your input. We are trying to get a good sense of what our wedding guests will need hotel-wise. We are eager to lock in some group rates, so you can all start booking your stays.
We have three favorite hotels in mind. Below you’ll see: descriptions, links and the price points we have been tentatively quoted (tax not included). We’d like you to check out the different locations and tell us your plans. We understand that this is just preliminary, but it will help us secure the right number of rooms at the right places.
*For those who plan to be here on Columbus day, Erin and I hope to have a group activity planned so we can all spend some more time together!
The Marriott Residence Inn at Courthouse
Located just outside DC in the desirable Courthouse/Clarendon area of Arlington, VA, this hotel is within walking distance of lots of great restaurants, bars and shops. It’s only two stops (10 minutes) to DC from the Metro station located right across the street. Newly opened in 2009, this hotel features spacious studio suites with full kitchens, complimentary buffet breakfast and an indoor pool. (Splash!) If you have a car, on site parking is available at $14 p/day. Quoted group rate $129.00
The Hotel Palomar,
For those who prefer to stay in the heart of DC, this contemporary luxury boutique hotel is located right off Dupont Circle. It is a stones throw away from a metro stop and stumbling distance from plenty of DC nightlife. If you are looking for modern elegance in a prime location, this is a great option. Valet parking with full in-and-out privileges is available for $36 per night, although when in DC it is best to leave the car parked. Quoted group rate $229.00
The Tabard Inn
For those seeking the charm of historic DC, this option is for you. This is a 40 room historic Inn on a quiet street smack in the middle of everything. Rooms range from quaint with shared bath to luxurious with pianos, fireplaces and sitting rooms. National Geographic puts up their photographers here, and the bar/lounge and restaurant are among DC’s finest. Rates vary from $113 – $203 (No special group rate quoted yet)
Fall is a busy and popular time in the DC Metro area, and we know that two large conventions are scheduled for the same weekend; accommodations will be in demand so we will start reserving blocks of rooms next week. Here is what we need from you:
Please leave us a comment with:
- The day you’re planning to come to DC…
- The day you’re planning to leave…
- The hotel where you’d like to stay…
- And how many rooms you expect to occupy.
Thanks so much for your help! We’ll let you know when the “blocks of rooms” are reserved and how to go about booking yours.
