Best Hotel for Wedding Guests

After a long day of celebrating with family and friends, it’s time for a quick refresh before jetting off to your honeymoon. Readers agree The Lismore (333 Gibson St., Eau Claire) is the best hotel for you and your wedding guests. Be sure to check out The Dive for some of the best drinks in town, and head over to The Informalist for brunch. In second place, check out The Oxbow Hotel (516 Galloway St., Eau Claire), which offers complimentary vinyl records to soothe your ears. Grab an Old Fashioned from The Lakely, too! Staybridge Suites (1515 Bluestem Blvd., Altoona) offers a home-like environment that is perfect to rest and recharge. –Rebecca Mennecke
