Hotels for Large Briar Patch Weddings and Parties

We are often asked at Briar Patch Bed and Breakfast Inn about nearby hotels for out of town guests for whom there is no room at our inn (which accommodates about 20 people). We have developed strong relationships with several hotels in the Leesburg and Chantilly areas, each about a 20 minutes drive from Briar Patch. These hotels offer significant Friday and Saturday night discounts for Briar Patch guests blocking rooms there. Some even extend those discounts to Sunday night as well, so be sure to let them know you're with Briar Patch. Two of these hotels offer a free shuttle to and from Briar Patch for guests staying at the hotel (usually one run each way for up to 14 passengers), subject to availability and usually with a minimum of ten rooms booked.

These hotels are:

Comfort Suites Leesburg (80 Prosperity Ave, Leesburg, VA) 703-669-1650

Dulles Homewood Suites (44620 Waxpool Rd; Dulles, VA) 703-723-7500

We strongly urge you to talk directly to the hotels as to the availability of the free shuttle service on any particular date. They have also been very generous by waiving the minimum room requirements on several occasions. If you need additional shuttle service, you can talk to us about our driving a Reston Limo van or going through us to get a 20% discount off the posted Reston Limo rates.

In addition, you can check with the other hotels listed on our Briar Patch resource links page where you can see the various hotels with which we have relationships, as well as many of the B and Bs in the area. So, for example, we have had many guests use the Hyatt Dulles, the Staybridge Suites, the Hampton Inn, and others -- all of which, at a minimum, offer a special discount for Briar Patch guests, some of which provide shuttle service at a minimum cost, and some of which will also provide a free shuttle occasionally, although most only offer a free shuttle to and from Dulles Airport.

We have made arrangements with these hotels primarily because there are no hotels in Middleburg or the immediate area, although there are two very nice inns -- The Red Fox Inn and Middleburg Country Inn -- both of which are right in downtown Middleburg, about 4 miles to the west of Briar Patch.
Like us, they each have a limited number of rooms, however. In addition, there are several inns who are members of the Loudoun County Bed and Breakfast Guild.

You can also get in touch with us if you need any particular advice on additional lodging and/or shuttles, of course.
