Travel Information

Everyone’s invited to…

Pre-Wedding Drinks & Post-Wedding Brunch (click for details)


Riverside is 60 miles east of Los Angeles, 101 miles north of San Diego, 440 miles south east of San Francisco, and 630 miles south west of Utah.


The closest airport is the Ontario Airport (about 20 miles from the wedding site).  Some hotels offer a shuttle from the airport.


There are several hotels that are within walking distance of the Ceremony and Reception sites.  And, there is free parking at both the ceremony and reception sites (which are within 1.5 blocks of each other). We recommend that you book your hotel rooms sooner rather than later because due to a large event going on that weekend some of the hotels in the area are already booked up!

Mission Inn Rotunda Stairway

1) The Mission Inn
3649 Mission Inn Ave
(800) 843-7755
Distance to Wedding Site: 0.1 miles
Prices: $150-190 and up

The Mission Inn is a beautiful and historic building.  Even if you don’t end up staying here, we highly recommend that you stop in just to check it out. There is even a museum inside (plus, it’s just across the street from the ceremony site!).

Note: We have been unsuccessful trying to book rooms over the phone directly with the Mission Inn (they say it’s booked). However, we have been successful booking rooms on a couple of different on-line sites, so if you’d like to stay here, please try booking through these (or other) on-line sites:

  2. AAA Travel (Remember to use your AAA card for a discount – if you have one)

2) The Thunderbird Lodge
2711 University Avenue
(951) 683-2070
Distance to Wedding Site: 0.6-1.0 miles (depending on the on-line source)
Prices (with group discount):
*Queen: $60
*2 Queens: $70
*King: $70
*Honeymoon Suite: $90 (King bed, heart-shaped Jacuzzi)
*1 Bedroom Suite: $90

Mission Inn aside, this is our number one hotel recommendation. It was just awarded the Historical Preservation award by the Old Riverside Foundation and has very reasonable prices. We also have a group rate setup for our wedding (these are the above listed prices).

The Riverside Marriott

3) The Riverside Marriott
3400 Market Street
(951) 786-7189
Distance to Wedding Site: 0.3-0.5 miles (depending on the on-line source)
Prices: $99-160 and up

This is a classic Marriot.  It too seems to have limited availability, so if you want a room here, we recommend booking soon.

The Santa Cruz Inn

4) Other Options

i. The Santa Cruz Inn
3425 Market Street
(951) 369-0238
