A Wedding Staycation :: Astoria at Central Park West Apartments, Irvine

*A complimentary stay was provided in exchange for this post.*
Planning a local getaway for your wedding weekend? This is the place to go!...


During the weekend of my wedding (a couple weeks ago), I was debating where to have a slumber party with my bridal babes. So when the Astoria at Central Park West Apartments offered a complimentary stay in a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment guest suite, I couldn't resist booking it for my wedding weekend. And you know what? My girls - plus the Mister - loved it!

The guest suites here already come fully furnished so you don't really have to worry about much. There's a full kitchen with a fridge, oven, microwave, and even plates, bowls, and silverware. It really does feel like it's a home-away-from-home and we immediately felt so at ease right when we walked in.


The Astoria at Central Park West Apartments team were also so kind and surprised us with all these yummy goodies and treats - thank you! From chocolates to popcorn to wine, we really didn't know where to start first. Everything just looked so delicious!

What sets this place apart is that it has the comfort vibes of an apartment but also the luxury amenities of a hotel. There's complimentary valet during your stay and for your guests, 24-hour concierge service, a pool and spa, as well as a fitness center. I must say though, their concierge service ROCKS. On the day of my wedding, I actually forgot my veil here and I was able to ask the concierge to find it for me so we could Uber it to my wedding venue (thanks to my middle sisteroo Kaf for this idea!). Without this amazing service they provide, I wouldn't have been able to wear my veil on my wedding day so I am truly thankful for them for that.

You can also bring in food and cook it yourself. Or, in this case, some sweet and savory pastries. I just attended a media tasting of Bakery Habana the day before my wedding (more on that later) so I packed these to-go for my girls and the Mister! Kept them refridgerated then next day popped them in the oven and baked to a crispy finish. YUMS.

Great view? Check. Centrally located in OC? Check. Spacious area? Check. I mean, really, what more could you ask for? For our small bridal party of 5, this place had plenty of room for all us girls! Two of my bridesmaids slept in one room and my two maids of honor (aka sisteroos) and I slept in the master bedroom. It fit us all comfortably and perfectly with lots of extra space to still go around!

Picking a place to stay to prepare for your wedding day can be tough but Astoria at Central Park West Apartments made it so easy for our vendors to come here. Our hair and makeup artists as well as our photographers and videographers were able to find the place and utilize the complimentary valet service. This turned out to be very helpful because then they don't have to spend too much time looking for parking and can get to your unit faster to get things done right away.

My "last single night" slumber party was a hit and we had so much fun sharing this time together! All my girls loved staying here. If you are getting married (or know someone getting married) in the near future, skip the hotel and rent one of the guest suites here instead. Trust me, you'll be happy that you did!

After the wedding, the Mister and I got to enjoy the guest suite just for ourselves with our Boston terrier dog Truffles. Downstairs in the lobby, they have a Peet's Coffee and Starbucks machines (coolest thing ever!) that makes freshly grinded coffee, chai tea, and more. We got ourselves a couple cups of hot cocoa, threw on some blankets on the floor, and all snuggled up together for a slumber party of our own. It was super comfy cozy and we totally cherished this moment.

Are you more of a Peet's Coffee or Starbucks kind of person?

With their two machines side-by-side in the lobby, we took a hot chocolate challenge test and Peet's Coffee won! We are now a fan. Thanks for reading and sending you hugs!
