our guests will be traveling from out-of-town, and we've booked blocks of rooms
at two locations to accomodate you for
friday, may 6 and/or saturday, may 7. each hotel has its pluses
falls church (click picture below for map) is
located 4.5 blocks from clare & don's. there
are suites that can be booked for $84 a night. this may be
your best option if your plan is just to come
in for the wedding, without seeing any other sites.
falls church is about a 25-minute drive west
of downtown d.c.
we also are looking into
setting up one suite with local baby-sitters for the evening. we're
still gauging the interest for that. if it sounds
like you something that would interest you, please
let us know.
for reservations at the
towneplace, call 1-800-228-9290 and ask for the "greenwood
wedding room block."
do want to see some more of the
area, particularly our neighborhood, or just if you are interested
in somewhat fancier digs, we've also booked a block at
the hotel monaco (click picture above for map) one block from
our apartment here in old town alexandria. it's a great hotel,
with a really good restaurant and bar (ray's geeky trivia
note: it was also the site of the first union casualty of
the civil war, exactly 150 years ago this may!) and
is completely dog-friendly.
however, it is pricier than
the towneplace. rooms at the monaco are $159 for a queen or
$179 for two double-beds. it is also about a half-hour
drive from clare & don's.
at the monaco, call 1-800-368-5047 and request the
"greenwood-lehmann wedding." or you can book on-line by
