I'm trying to find the right wording to explain to our guests the hotel options for our wedding. A few things to note: we didn't block out rooms because we have a fairly small number of OOT guests, and there are TONS of hotel options that vary by price, ratings, etc. All the ones we recommended are about 12-14 miles from the venue, because the hotels that are closer to the venue (6-10 miles) are realllllllly sketchy and are located right off the highway with almost nothing around them. The ones we recommended are right next to a huge shopping/restaurant area so we feel the guests would appreciate that more anyway. Here's what I have on the wedding website so far:
"We've listed several options for lodging in (our town). We did not block out rooms given the large amount of lodging options available, so feel free to book a room where you feel most comfortable. The hotels we've listed are approximately 12-14 miles from the wedding venue, and are located in close proximity to many shops and restaurants in (our town)."
Then below that I'll list the 3 options we plan to recommend. Thoughts? Better wording ideas?
