Could you do blocks at both places? For me, if I’m staying in a town I’m not familiar with I’d honestly rather pay a bit more to be closer to the places that I’m going, so I’d want to choose the closer venue. But I’m sure there are plenty of people who’d rather save money, too.

I’d rather stay close….especially if I’m not familiar with the area.  That being said…I wouldn’t mind spending extra money a night to stay there…BUT…from my own experience with saving blocked rooms for my guests at my wedding…some people just do not like to spend more than they have to, so I would definitely block both and give guests a choice.

I would rather stay close.  Lucky for me, the closest hotel was pretty affordable with a discount.  They also are providing a complimentary round trip to and from the reception.

I would make a block at both.  It’s good to let your guests make their own choices.

Closer. However, are you offering transportation, like a shuttle or something? If you weren’t and the hotel wasn’t walking distance, then I wouldn’t stay anyway.

@GretaCT: I think that if you have a shuttle for either the further hotel or the closer hotel, both would be fine and just block rooms at each hotel giving your guests options.  Just a thought : )
