The Space: 1,045 sq. ft., 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, dining room, living room & full kitchen

What We Love: With to-die-for views and luxury appliances (check out that bathtub!), you’ll never want to leave. And while many brides don’t get a chance to sit down and eat at their own weddings, Hotel Palomar has a remedy with 24-hour room service from Saltbox.

Order Up: Share small plates with your beau, such as Lobster Corn Dogs, Flash Fried Shishito Peppers, and Ham & Cheese Bites.

The Space: 3,250 sq. ft. 1 bedroom, 1 1/2 bathrooms, living room, full kitchen, dining room, patio with chiminea

What We Love: The bay view and the private outdoor patio are just the start. This extremely spacious suite, in contemporary tropical decor, allows plenty of room for your entire bridal party, relatives, in-laws, and whoever insists on being close while you’re getting ready.

Order Up: Keep things light for you and your bridesmaids on the big day with fruit smoothies from the hotel’s Tropics Bar.
