Redondo Beach Wedding Venue
300 North Harbor Drive
Redondo Beach, California 90277
Located in the heart of the Redondo Beach Marina, the Crowne Plaza is just a few steps away from the Redondo Beach Pier and within walking distance of many local attractions.
The hotel’s proximity to the water makes it popular for weddings, and their second-floor Harbor Terrace is a stunning spot for an outdoor ceremony. This expansive area gives you a 180-degree panorama of the sailboats in the marina as well as the Pacific beyond, and on very clear days you can see Catalina Island. A refreshing sea breeze keeps things cool as you exchange vows, with the glittering ocean as a backdrop. And because you’re so high up, a gorgeous sunset is practically guaranteed to add a romantic glow to the occasion.
Reception possibilities abound. Medium-sized events work well in the Seascape Ballroom and the adjacent Coral Foyer. We love the high planked-wood ceiling here, an unusual touch for a hotel ballroom. A wall of glass lets in natural light, and French doors open out onto a private patio. Large events are held in the Coral Ballroom, which features modern chandeliers and comes with its own foyer. Since this ballroom divides into three sections, it provides a lot of flexibility.
The completely private Promenade Room on the mezzanine level is an attractive choice for smaller weddings, vow renewals or rehearsal dinners. Serve cocktails in the private foyer, and then move into the room itself for dinner and dancing. Large windows on two sides overlook the ocean, and at night the view sparkles with lights from the boats in the marina.
Splash, the hotel’s California/Mediterranean restaurant, offers a completely different ambiance for events. Its sophisticated private room (it has a high black ceiling and fireplace) can be used on its own or with an adjoining patio for your rehearsal dinner or farewell brunch. We also can’t resist the fun of the Chef’s Table, which seats 10 in the exhibition kitchen. After the staff has helped personalize your menu (they’ll even create specific dishes just for you), you and your guests will have the pleasure of watching the chef cook dinner right before your eyes!
The hotel takes maximum advantage of its ocean exposure, so 85% of their stylish guest rooms have water views and private balconies, while special room packages and suite options give you amenities usually found only in boutique hotels. The on-site European day spa will tempt you with their couple’s treatment room, and there’s even a package for your entire bridal party. You won’t have to worry about looking fantastic on the Big Day, either: Le Room Salon specializes in wedding-day hair and makeup. And if you’re experiencing any pre-wedding jitters, you can work them out at the gym next door, complimentary to hotel guests.
The Crowne Plaza Redondo Beach staff take care of everything: Not only can they customize one of their all-inclusive wedding packages to fit your budget and style, an Event Manager will assist you from the planning stage through the end of your reception.
