The Union Hotel is the perfect place! We have a beautiful garden that seats over 250 guests, a gorgeous gazebo and Victorian koi pond, and large food facilities (as well as a beautiful Victorian period restaurant in which to dine in.)

The Union Hotel is a truly unique setting for a memorable event.
Few places in California have such a long tradition of hosting visitors as does the Union Hotel. For over 103 years the Hotel has hosted travelers, first stagecoach, then railroad, then early motorists, on the original Highway 101. We are just a minute off the highway, but that minute is like a voyage back in time.
Back in the 1920's, movie stars, on their way to Hearst Castle, stopped by to refill their flasks. In the early 50's, you might find Johnny Cash or Buck Ownes (before they were famous) playing downstairs. Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson made the memorable "Say, Say, Say" video here in the 70's.
We provide tradition and we value the past in a magical, romantic setting that appeals to all ages, 8 to 108,
Stories best tell the magic at the Hotel. An 85 year old man stood in the doorway for a long time. I went to see if he was okay. With tears in his eyes, he told me, "I'm remembering when my grandad brought me here. I was 8 years old." I could see in his eyes, he was a boy again, holding his granpa's hand.
Whether you choose to have your wedding inside, in the 1880's red plush Victorian parlour, or outside in our charming garden, by the frog pond, it will be a memorable occasion.
No two weddings are alike, because no two brides are alike. Each wedding is designed around you.
