4 Southern CA Hotels Your Wedding Guests Will Love

Suggest these Southern California hotels when friends and family come to town for your wedding.

For relatives coming from far away

Send them to St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort in Orange County for some pampering after the long trip. A Mediterranean massage or a grape-seed mud wrap at the spa should do the trick. And after sleeping on 300-thread-count sheets, your guests will wake up refreshed for your wedding. St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort, Dana Point, (949) 234-3200

For guests with tykes (and pets) in tow

The Sofia Hotel in San Diego has pet-friendly rooms and pet daycare to keep an eye on your furry family member while you're at the wedding. They'll even take Rover on private walks! The hotel's near SeaWorld, the San Diego Zoo and other theme parks, so entertaining the kids is easy. The Sofia Hotel, San Diego, (619) 234-9200

For your parents' friends

Marilyn Monroe and Clark Gable used to stay at The Hollywood Roosevelt in Los Angeles, which first opened in 1927 and was the original home of the Academy Awards. Though recent renovations have made the rooms more modern, the hotel's vintage charm is still intact. The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, Los Angeles, (323) 466-7000

For your friends

The Oceana in Santa Monica, a laid-back boutique hotel with a courtyard pool, is the perfect place for your friends to chill out after partying at your reception. They've got a swanky fitness center, but your friends can also go for a run in Palisades Park, just minutes away. The Oceana, Santa Monica, (310) 393-0486
