    Why don’t you get a block at both hotels and let guests decide?  Personally Fiance and I always stay close to the venue because he’s usually unable to drive at the end of the night… but others may prefer the alternative.

    If you are providing transportation between the hotel and venue on the wedding day, I would prefer the hotel with free parking. It doesn’t really make much difference to me if i’m sitting on a bus for 15 min or 30 min as long as someone else is driving 🙂

    I’d try to do blocks at both and give your guests the info so they can choose.

    However, if you had to pick one, I might go with free parking, especially if your guests are from areas where parking is free/cheap normally.  I’m from such an area and it totally irks me when I visit Chicago (or other large city) and have to pay $50/day to park at the hotel!
