Hotels for Wedding Parties near Garfield Park Conservatory

We are having a wedding ceremony at the Garfield Park Conservatory next spring. We need a hotel(s) that are somewhat easily accessible to the conservatory as well as near potential rehearsal dinner options. Any thoughts! Thanks!

No hotels immediately near the conservatory. GPC is not in the greatest area of the city.

Plan on arranging private transportation from a downtown hotel to the event and reception.

Garfield Park is not safe. There are no hotels and you don't want to be eating ( notice I didn't say dining) in the area. The Conservatory is wonderful and the neighborhood was lovely- 100 years ago. Hire limos or a bus to take your guests to and from the conservatory for the wedding and have the wedding at midday when the sun is out.

You can have the event at night. There's lots of evening events there. But no hotels. As the others have said, plan on everyone staying downtown.

Wes is correct, you can have evening events at the Garfield Conservatory. Just make sure that your guests don't mistakenly walk into the surrounding neighborhood and do not park your car on the street at night in that area.
