InterContinental San Diego in San Diego, California
Opened in September of 2018, InterContinental San Diego has teamed up with fashion brand Kendra Scott to create the ultimate bridal suite experience.

Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards North Garden, Virginia
Every detail of Pippin Hall Farm & Vineyards’ bridal loft was designed with the bridal party in mind. Tucked away at the top of the central Virginia farm’s Granary venue (intended to give the space a secret, serene feel), the farmhouse suite features cream and gray tones throughout. The loft comes equipped with a hair and makeup bar, a bathroom, a shower, multiple sinks, and comfy couches and chairs. The bridal loft even has its own specialty lunch menu. For photo ops, brides have hung their dresses from the dark green antique armoire. They also can pose in front of a tri-fold mirror for that classic “getting-ready” shot.
The Post Oak Hotel at Uptown Houston in Houston, Texas
The dazzling Presidential Suite at The Post Oak Hotel at Uptown Houston—Space City’s only AAA Five Diamond hotel—is a posh, urban hideaway. Launched in spring of 2018, the lavish 5,000-square-foot two-bedroom suite comes complete with a private elevator, a fitness center, a kitchen, a living room, expansive windows, a dining room, and a secluded terrace featuring views of Houston’s skyline. Small, luxe touches include Christofle and Hermès crystal barware, hand-knotted silk rugs, and a collection of 11 (seriously!) chandeliers. Brides will also have their pick of indoor and outdoor spaces where they can pose for photos. And if that all wasn't enough, as an additional amenity, guests can purchase round-the-clock butler service.
Melrose Mansion in New Orleans, Louisiana
Built in 1885, Melrose Mansion is a restored Victorian mansion that’s located on the edge of New Orleans's famed French Quarter. And the boutique hotel’s second floor Residential Executive Suite is the most popular choice for bridal prep—and it’s not hard to see why. Overlooking historic, oak tree-lined Esplanade Avenue, the suite features two private balconies and more than 1,300-square-feet of living space where brides can primp. The suite offers a charming mix of historic and modern details including high ceilings, a fireplace, a glass coffee table, and a modern kitchen with a glass stovetop. A Melrose Mansion butler also personally attends to the suite. Butlers are trained to handle wedding day snafus and typically have sewing kits, steamers, and glam squad contact information available.
The William Vale in Brooklyn, New York
The Vale Garden Residence at The William Vale in Brooklyn is the ultimate luxe urban retreat. For starters, the suite makes up for what many New York City-area hotels lack: space. The two-floor, 1,320-square-foot indoor space features modern decor, walls dotted with contemporary artwork from renowned national and local artists, and floor-to-ceiling windows with expansive views of New York City. The 1,632-square-foot furnished outdoor patio allows your bridal party to relax in the private outdoor Jacuzzi (a rare gem in the Big Apple) or lounge on patio couches—all while they’re surrounded by stunning city views.
Grand Hotel Tremezzo Lake Como, Italy
For a grand Italian experience, consider booking the luxurious Rooftop Penthouse at the over-a century-old Grand Hotel Tremezzo. The iconic property (film star Greta Garbo was a frequent guest) offers brides jaw-dropping views of Lake Como in northern Italy. The suite—made up of a front suite with direct access to a corner suite—manages to feel both contemporary and antique. The bridal party can look forward to plush red couches, gold-framed photos and mirrors, marble bathrooms, and private terraces where they can behold breathtaking vistas of one of the world’s most beautiful lakes.
The Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada

In keeping with the Vegas setting, the entire suite, designed by Avenue Interior Design, is glamorous and fun. The space features blush-colored furniture (including one chair that’s shaped like a bird cage) and cream tones complemented by marble tables and gold furniture and fixtures—all topped off with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking The Strip. Up to four bridesmaids can prep at once at a beauty bar, complete with custom vanity mirrors. The oversized salon-style master bathroom includes a dressing room with seating areas, multiple sinks, and vanity mirrors. Additional in-room amenities include a complimentary WilsonGabrielle x ColourPop make-up kit, Dyson hair dryers, satin robes, and a welcome amenity.
Zingerman's Cornman Farms in Dexter, Michigan
The farmhouse at Zingerman's Cornman Farms was recently redesigned by the former editor-in-chief of Domino, Michelle Adams—which means it's chic beyond belief!
