Hotel Accomodations

We reserved a block of rooms at the Marriott in downtown Greensboro, under the "Shawn and Leilani Whitmire Party." This hotel is about a three minute drive or a fifteen minute walk to Studio B. Parking there is pretty high, so you may want to consider dropping off your belongings and parking on the street or the Greene Street Deck or the Washington Street Deck. See the next post for this info. Street and deck parking is relatively safe in Greensboro. We are under contract for a $92.00 nightly rate, plus tax.

To get to Studio B from the Marriott:

Head south on N Greene St toward Bellemeade Street

0.2 mi

Turn left at W Market St/US-29 Alt N

Take the 1st right onto S Elm St

You can also stay at favorite hotel, The Proximity Hotel, where we stayed after our wedding. It's modern and gorgeous, and the first LEED platinum hotel in the country. Its close to shopping, restaurants, and has a car service to dining, shopping and the airport. Parking there is free.
