- Wedding: August 2012
I have been looking for a wedding night hotel for ages, and I am stumped. Our wedding is 45mins north of our home in Northern Virginia and about half an hour north of DC proper (at Woodlawn Manor in Maryland). We have two nights before we leave for our honeymoon, so it does need to be someplace romantic and fun. I don’t really relish the idea of spending those two days in downtown DC (in August) or in Old Town Alexandria, just because those places are so “normal” and near our house. I cannot find any luxury hotels in that part of Maryland, and being in downtown Baltimore isn’t much better than downtown DC. I just want a quiet, woodsy NICE hotel with real bathtubs and schmancy showers and good food. We’d could do a B&B, but generally, I can’t stand them. What is with all the old-timey decorations and squeaky queen-size beds? And there is no way I want to get up at 7am to be forced to have breakfast with perfect strangers. Any suggestions for a modern, secluded resort/hotel/Inn in the Capital region? We’re willing to drive up to 45 minutes after our reception ends.
