Hotels & Travel

If you are flying into San Francisco or San Jose, please expect about a 1.5-2 hour drive from these locations. We suggest renting a car from these airports. If you are getting a connecting flight into Monterey, the airport is about a 15-20 minute shuttle ride from the hotels. We will be arranging airport shuttles for Thursday, Friday and Sunday to the Monterey Airport. Shuttles will be provided to the events from specific hotels. You will only need a car if you plan on exploring Big Sur or the area. For more transportation details click here.

We will be providing transportation from Bernardus Lodge, The Hideaway Carmel, Monterey Hyatt and Carmel Mission Inn during the wedding weekend. When making your reservations, please be sure to specify that you are with the Hines-Gardner Wedding group to receive the group rate.
