Hotel Information

You wouldn’t think something like setting up a block of rooms for your guests at a local hotel would be such a big decision, right? I can’t believe how much thought and debate went into this one! Kathy (our contact at Black Bear Crossings Pavilion…also the mom of one of my childhood friends!) was kind enough to send me over a list of vendors that they often work with. This was a great starting point for a lot of our vendor research. She listed a few hotels and even told me that one of them is only a few miles away and has a free shuttle for the guests! Earlier this year, my sister Erin was able to find a hotel that also had a shuttle. The shuttle was able to pick guests up at the end of the reception and drive them safely back to the hotel. This was not only convenient, it was AWESOME!

Now that I’ve got you all excited about this option, I will crush your spirit. The hotel that was recommended to us was booked to capacity back in May! To quote Stephanie Tanner, “How rude”. It seems that the Minnesota State Fairgrounds hosts a “Back to the 50’s” weekend every year and it just so happens to fall over Golducci Wedding Weekend next June. They always book that same hotel for all of the employees to stay in…lame.

So, after moping around about that let down for a few months, we started to research some other hotel options. It appears that no other hotel in the Como/Roseville area offers a shuttle option for their guests. But, with the help both of our mothers, we have chosen a hotel and set up a block of rooms for our guests to reserve.

Here are the details:

Holiday Inn Express Roseville

2715 Long Lake Road, Roseville, MN 55113

Phone: 651-636-5800  Fax: 651-636-9414


**Ask for the Goldin/Martinucci Wedding Block when you make your reservation!

 Here is also the number for Super Shuttle 1-800-258-3826. Super Shuttle is a shuttle service from the airport to us that you schedule ahead of time and it is $23 one way per person. A taxi will cost about $60 from the airport.
