The recommended host housing is the Marin Suites Hotel in Corte Madera, only a handful of miles from the wedding sites. We believe it has the best balance of cost, comfort, and convenience for individuals, couples, and families in a central location. The one-bedroom suites have a queen bed and a rollout sofa in the common area to sleep up to four. The two-bedroom suites have three queen beds and a rollout to sleep up to eight in reasonable comfort---at least by college student standards.
The website, marinsuites.com, linked above is pretty extensive with useful descriptions and information so potential guests are encouraged to check it out.
We have many one-bedroom and two-bedroom suites reserved for guests of the "Dale-Reichardt Wedding" for the period Friday, October 6th through Monday, October 9th. There are a few studio suites available as well. They will be able to tailor the duration of their stay as appropriate during the booking process. Guests need to book the individual suites by phone BEFORE the end of September to receive the reduced rates. The guests cannot use the online booking service to get the reduced rate and must use the 800 number given above. For best service, call between 9-5 PDT Mon-Fri and request to speak directly with the sales director who is familiar with the wedding arrangements. Also, make sure you are getting the reduced rates listed on this page.
Most of the hotels in the area are right off the freeway, US-101, which is convenient when driving, but less so if you're a particularly light sleeper. The Marin Suites is better than most in this regard. We checked out the rooms nearest the freeway and they aren't bad at all. Just in case, however, we suggest that guests request rooms "near the pool" on the WEST side of the hotel, rather than near the eastside of the courtyard, which has bedroom windows facing the freeway. However, this option will be less and less available as rooms fill up, so please book your accomodations as soon as possible.
Guests are certainly welcome to seek out their own accommodations at their convenience and preferences. There are many wonderful bed-and-breakfasts all over Marin County, as well as elsewhere in the Bay Area.
Of course, one can find everything up to and including the most extravagant accommodations in San Francisco or even Oakland without being too far away from the wedding activities.
