Honeymoon Sweet

3 sumptuous Texas hotel suites for celebrating an amazing wedding night.

1. Penthouse at Hotel HavanaSan Antonio

The Vibe On the romantic Riverwalk, this 1914 Mediterranean Revival mansion has been whimsically reimagined by LGBT tastemaker Liz Lambert, its rooms thoughtfully curated with retro-chic pieces, including Tivoli Audio clock radios with Bluetooth and colorful mid-century modern–inspired SMEG refrigerators stocked with tempting treats. The 650-square-foot penthouse, with pine-wood floors and vintage armchairs, accesses a breezy veranda.

Favorite Features Organic Red Flower bath products, serape robes, delicious full breakfast in your suite or at the gorgeous, conservatory-style Ocho Restaurant.

From $520 nightly

2. Hacienda at the Inn at Dos BrisasWashington

The Vibe An hour’s drive from Houston on a verdant equestrian ranch, this peaceful Relais & Châteaux boutique resort hosts stunning weddings and farm-to-table receptions. Each of the five 1,795-foot haciendas exudes elegance—with French oak floors, a lofty pitched ceiling, and deep leather sofa—and the opulent master baths make a splendid milieu for your first night of matrimony.

Favorite Features Heated plunge pool and outdoor shower, fireplaces in living room and bedroom, use of personal golf cart to get around the 313-acre property.

From $989 nightly

3. Deluxe Loft Suite at Joule HotelDallas

The Vibe This cosmopolitan 1920s neo-gothic high-rise shimmers with a dazzling interior by acclaimed designer Adam Tihany and museum-quality contemporary art, including pieces by gay icons Andy Warhol, Ellsworth Kelly, and Roger Hiorns. The 1,000-square-foot Deluxe Loft Suite is far smaller than the hotel’s four palatial penthouses, but it’s sleek and split-level, and perfect for celebrating a romantic wedding night. The next day, enjoy a lavish brunch (green chile pork migas, perhaps) at CBD Provisions, Thai massage at the 8,000-square-foot spa, and shopping for honeymoon threads next door at the flagship Neiman Marcus.

Favorite Features Massive bathroom with deep soaking tubs, arty Taschen books set throughout the suite, plush Sferra bedding.

From $692 nightly
