Do the bride and groom get a complimentary room for the wedding night?
All of our ceremony packages include a complimentary coastal view guest room for the bride and groom on the night of their wedding.
Can the complimentary room be upgraded?
The complimentary guest room may be upgraded based on availability, and will be determined on the day of arrival. You may choose to extend the complimentary room to a member of your bridal party or family. A separate room reservation for an upgraded room would be made for you by your Special Events Manager and the room would be charged at the prevailing rate.
Where does the bridal party get ready before the wedding?
We recommend guest room reservations be made for a minimum two-night length of stay with a check-in date of the night before the wedding and checkout the day after the wedding. This will eliminate the stress on the day of the wedding of having to check in and out of guest rooms.
The bride, groom, bridesmaids and groomsmen can also enjoy services and treatments at The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Naples. Hair styling, makeup, manicures, pedicures, massages and couples treatments are all available on property.
Does the hotel offer a discounted room block?

Holiday weekends may be subject to a three-night minimum stay. Please note check-in time is 4 p.m. and checkout is 12 p.m.
