Hotel Blocks

If you’re coming in from out of town, explore all the awesome things that Madison has to offer. When we explore a new city, we usually do it through AirBnB. If you’re traveling with a large group, VRBO may also be a good choice.

If you’re a hotel-or-bust type of person, we’ve also got you covered! We won’t be having any specific hotel-centered activities, so there are three options. Chose your own adventure: ALL BLOCKS ARE RESERVED FOR FRIDAY 9/2, SATURDAY 9/3, AND SUNDAY 9/4 WITH CHECKOUT ON MONDAY 9/5.

  1. Park life! We have reserved a large hotel block near our wedding venue, Olin Park. It’s a quick drive to downtown, and just a hop, skip, and a jump to Olin on Sunday so you don’t have to worry about a designated driver. Score!
    • Sheraton Inn, $119/night.
      • Ask for the Bushnell.Barnett Wedding. Call 608-251-2300, or online at
  2. Stay downtown. You’ll be closer to the cheese curds and the Capitol, but wear comfy shoes if you want to walk back from Olin on Sunday.
    • Best Western Inn on the Park, Single $179/night, Double $199/night (no Saturday-only stays)
      • Ask for the Bushnell/Barnett Wedding. Call 608-285-8000, online link

  3. Blaze a trail! Are you a rugged individual who can make your own choices? Then buy local and stay at one of these great hotels that don’t have an official Bushnell/Barnett wedding block.
