4 Texas Hotels Your Wedding Guests Will Love

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

For your parents' friends

The Fairmont, located right in downtown Dallas, is near plenty of shops, restaurants and museums to keep everyone entertained. If they’d rather not leave the comfort of the hotel, there’s an Olympic-size pool and in-room massages. Gold-floor suites have views of the city, lounge areas and baths with rain showers (with plenty of room for two -- wink, wink) so they can feel like they’re on a second honeymoon. The Fairmont, Dallas, (214) 720-2020

For long-distance relatives

Family members coming in from out of town are likely to make a vacation out of the trip, so send them to Hotel Valencia Riverwalk, where they can soak up some San Antonio flavor. Not only is the hotel located right in the city’s most hopping area, rooms feature sleek décor, 42-inch flat-screens and waffle-wave bathrobes. Hotel Valencia Riverwalk, San Antonio, (210) 227-9700

For guests with tykes in tow

Families will love Vintage Villas, a retreat that’s half hotel, half bed-and-breakfast. King rooms include double-sized whirlpool baths (bring on the rubber duckies!), and some villas have their own living room and kitchen so parents don’t have to look for kiddie menus all weekend (the extra space doesn’t hurt, either!). Bonus: Bigger kids can go tubing in the lake right on the property. Vintage Villas, Austin, (512) 266-9333

For your friends

Recommend the super-luxe Hotel ZaZa. Many of the spacious rooms have dining and lounging areas -- perfect for an old college crew looking for a late-night hangout. The hotel also has a swanky restaurant, lavish spa and pet-friendly policy, even if pooches aren’t invited to your wedding! Hotel ZaZa, Houston, (713) 526-1991
