    I chose Hotel Laurance for the rehearsal dinner for my son's wedding. This venue is a recently restored boutique hotel in the center of Luray. The restoration is just gorgeous! It was the perfect setting for a memorable evening. I had to plan the dinner long distance and Leah Pence, Event Coordinator for the hotel, was extremely helpful. She answered every query promptly and completely, coordinating with our caterer Main Street Bakery, to make my evening stress-free! She also created fabulous wildflower arrangements for the table and parlor ... the decorations were a casual but elegant addition to an already beautiful venue. The overall experience with Hotel Laurance was exceptional ... and having had a tour of some of the guest rooms, I would also recommend the hotel as a destination for any event.

    The Hotel Laurance is absolutely stunning! I want my house to look like this one day. Our room was HUGE and so clean. It felt more like an apartment than a hotel room. I loved everything about this hotel and the woman who runs it. Gail was incredible. She even put rose petals on our bed because it was our wedding night! The ONLY hiccup we had is that we didn't receive our code to get into our room so when we showed up after our reception we didn't know how to get in. However, all it took was a quick phone call and that was that. Yes, she answered the phone at 10:30pm and was all ready with the information!

    We had also rented out rooms here for my parents and really close family and friends (there aren't many rooms) and they loved it as well. My aunt said it was the most beautiful hotel she had ever stayed in.

    So if you are planning a trip to Luray and are looking for a wonderful place to stay, this is it! I would highly recommend to anyone looking for accommodations for their wedding night as well because it was truly luxury.

    We reserved all 12 rooms in the hotel for our wedding party and guests. The Hotel Laurance is beautiful and the rooms and common areas provide a lovely backdrop for wedding photos. The hotel is beautifully decorated. The hotel does not have 24-hour staff but they make checking in at any time a breeze. The limited hours that they have personnel on site did make the process for reserving the hotel a little slow, but they are very pleasant and it was well worth it. Our guests all loved the hotel and it was very close to our venue (as well as several other venues in the area).
