Your wedding day is one of the few chances in life to really go all out. A goofy gift bag? Yes, please! A crazy-tough workout regimen? Why not! Continue the trend when you book your hotel suite. After all, there's only one first night as a married couple. You might as well spend it in one of these luxurious rooms to ensure it's a night you and your new hubs will never forget.

Coming home at the end of the night to a two-story penthouse in the heart of the city ensures your day keeps getting better and better. The next morning, you can recharge in the soaking tub and snuggle into Frette terrycloth robes as you start your first day as a married couple.
Trump International Hotel
The views of Lake Michigan, the Chicago River, and the famous skyline serve as the perfect backdrop for your getting-ready photos before it all begins. The Trump's Deluxe Suite feels roomy with more than 1,000 square feet, 10-foot windows overlooking said views, and a fireplace. Extra perks like a deep soaking tub and a Nespresso machine make coming back to reality the next day a bit easier.
On one of the biggest nights of your life, why not treat yourself like a celebrity? Opt for one of the Ambassador Celebrity Suites, each inspired by celebrities who stayed there when it was the Ambassador East Hotel—from Frank Sinatra to Marilyn Monroe. The one-bedroom suites feature clean, white décor and luxe Frette sheets to carry the bridal white theme through to the very end.
The Penthouse Loft at the James Hotel stole our hearts with its modern Eames chair and warm wood accents. But then we peeked at the bathroom—with a soaking tub and a rain shower to rival any spa—and fell even more in love.
The Drake Hotel
You can join the ranks of Walt Disney and Julia Roberts when you spend the night at The Drake Hotel. To make it even more extravagant, opt for the Princess Diana Suite, where Lady Di herself stayed once upon a time. With a foyer, dining room, living room, bedroom, and more, there's plenty of space to spread out with elegance from a bygone era carrying through the décor.
The Bottega Veneta Suite, designed by the brand's creative director, is all about rich textures and undeniable style. You'll find a cozy wool carpet, leather chairs, and the signature Bottega woven leather on the bed frame, plus a view of Michigan Avenue to greet you when you wake up.
