BastilleDay 2001!

Hotel Information

The Wyndham Boston Hotel
We have reserved a block of rooms at the Wyndham Boston Hotel located at 89 Broad Street (Please note that there are other Wyndham hotels in the Boston Area). For these reserved rooms we have a discounted rate that you can obtain if you mention the Pomerance-Ulmer wedding when you call. A standard room (one king bed or two queen beds) should cost $209, and you can get a two-room suite for $284. The deadline for registering at this rate is June 15th. You can reserve a room by calling (800)-WYNDHAM or the hotel directly at (617)-556-0006.

The Wyndham Boston hotel is located fairly close to the the aquarium (about a 5 minute walk). The wedding party will be staying here Friday and Saturday nights. Parking is roughly $30 a night.

UPDATE: We've found that if you reserve a room for the Wyndham directly from their website, you can get a weekender rate of $199 without mentioning the wedding. Go figure...

If you're in the mood for something more sophisticated, we've also reserved rooms at Le Méridien. Le Méridien prides itself on its luxury and is located at 250 Franklin Street. We have rooms reserved at a rate of $245. The hotel is in the same area as the Wyndham, but is a few blocks farther away from the Aquarium. Weekend parking is around $15+a night.

UPDATE: We've noticed on Le Meridien's web site that they advertise weekend rates starting at $159 (and going up to $550). If you are able to get a good rate here, please let us know!
