Hotels, Hotels, Hotels

We were very surprised to learn just how few hotels there really were in the area. There's some hotels out by the airport (too far: "Thanks for coming to our wedding and sitting in traffic for an hour on the way over from your hotel), and all up and down 3rd ave (too industrial: "Thanks for coming to our wedding, but don't worry you won't get mugged, it just looks like you will"), but for the most part Park Slope has a YMCA and handful of BNB's.  I imagine they don't have 20 room blocks they could hold for us, six months out with no down payment but thankfully corporate America comes through again! We've already received a response from the Brooklyn Bridge Marriott, and have submitted an RFP to the new Sheritton just around the corner. I doubt we can squeeze a bidding war out of them, but at best we'll be able to offer guests a choice depending on whichever reward program you might have.  They're gonna be in the $200/night range, not sure about parking but there are plenty of garages in the area.  If that's a little too steep, you better call dibbs on our couch now as the current resident (or mayor if you go by 4Square methodology) will probably beat you to it.
