  • Wedding: September 2010

We were in nearby Nahant for our wedding, and ended up booking at the Hampton Inn in Revere, about 15-20 min away. Places in Lynn/Nahant did not allow blocks and were very expensive.

I wasn’t pleased with the Hampton Inn, unfortunately, since we worked through them to shuttle our guests back and forth, and they were not prompt and stranded the whole wedding party at the reception for 1.5 hours after the event.

Fellow North Shore bride here! (well, I still haven’t finalized my venue yet, but I’m pretty sure I’m gonna end up on the North Shore…)

I have a feeling I’m gonna run into the same predicament as you, MissBoston.

It seems like most of the chain hotels are in Danvers, which I’m also considering.  Danvers is only 20 minutes from Gloucester – you think that’s too far?

Have you tried the Wylie Inn at Endicott College in Beverly? It’s a *little* bit closer to Gloucester than Danvers…

  • Wedding: April 2010

I went to a wedding in Gloucester last year. They did not block rooms at hotels, and rather put the names of all of the B&Bs in the area on their wedding website. It was slightly annoying to have to do the legwork myself rather than to just book at one place with a known price, but overall it was fine. I don’t know what prices are like during the season of your wedding, but the wedding I attended was in September and I was able to get a relatively inexpensive room at one of the inns (<$100). For me, staying at one of the inns within walking distance of the wedding meant that I did not have to rent a car (although I would rent a car if I did this trip again!). Some of my friends stayed in Boston and drove in for the wedding, too.
