Our wedding hotel block is in Healdsburg, our wedding is in Kenwood, CA. I'm looking for a very special hotel for my fiancé and I to stay the night of our wedding - our first night as husband and wife. I need suggestions and some feedback.
Our budget? Well, it will be a gift from a family member and they didn't tell me a price. I’m guessing that I can spend around $300 and maybe up to $400/night.
What I'm looking for? A special room with a fireplace and plush bed and amenities. Not an ordinary room, something that we would need to save up for in future years and celebrate anniversaries there.
Am I wrong in wanting a special room at a boutique hotel?
Should I consider suites at regular chain hotels like Hyatt, Hilton and Marriott? I probably have enough hotel points to get a free room.
Any hotel suggestions? I've looked at the following:
Jim Ash Vintners Inn - love the look of their rooms, but has a minimum two night stay
Hotel Healdsburg – a little plain and a lot expensive
Healdsburg Inn – I like this one
Auberge du Soleil – too expensive
Madrona Manor - not what I’m looking for
DuChamp – completely lovely, but too expensive
