Hotels in California are gearing up for an expected boom in same-sex weddings business after a ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court that lifts the ban on same-sex marriage in the state. The Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law predicts that nearly $500 million in spending for same-sex weddings will be added to California's economy over the next three years. Hotel chains and properties across the U.S., including W Hotels, Joie de Vivre Hotels and Morgans Hotel Group, have launched special packages celebrating LGBT pride.
