We'd love it if you would mention that you found Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina on the Here Comes The Guide website.
Why We Like This Place
The Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina combines the refreshing ambiance of a seaside refuge with the deluxe amenities of the finest resort, including sophisticated dining, a Spa and Fitness Center, and accommodations with private balconies overlooking the bay or the hotel's private marina.
Yet the most spectacular feature of this location has got to be its unmatched panoramic views: The Bay Tower faces the harbor and marina with its ever-changing tableau of colorful boats, while the Marina Tower offers a million-dollar vista—a dazzling display of glittering city lights.
The hotel's waterfront location is ideal for outdoor ceremonies, most often held at the Garden Terrace. Here, fragrant white tea roses, lavender, gardenia, jasmine, and magnolia trees line a latticed arbor walkway, which leads to a fountain that trickles soothingly in the background. Friends and family take their seats on a manicured lawn alongside the water, with the harbor scene providing a gorgeous backdrop. Another site, the Bayview Lawn, is nestled under shade trees near the Marina Tower and affords southerly views of the bay. This lawn is also perfect for hosting a unique rehearsal dinner—one that combines food trucks with hotel catering for a truly special dining experience.
If you prefer a ceremony at sea, board a private yacht and have the captain officiate your wedding. Participate in the tradition of scattering rose petals to the wind, and watch the waves carry them to the horizon.
During the cocktail hour, numerous patios, terraces, and lounges invite guests to mingle in the glow of the setting sun, perhaps taking in the customary evening regatta or departing ocean liners. Clear glass panels surrounding some patios allow unobstructed views, while comfortably protecting everyone from ocean breezes.
Then it's off to one of the Sheraton's half-dozen versatile ballrooms for dinner and dancing. The Catalina Ballroom is a popular choice for larger events, boasting sensational floor-to-ceiling water views, along with its own foyer and terrace. But whether you choose an intimate room for 10 or the 20,000-square-foot tented Pavilion for 1,500 of your closest friends, the hotel can accommodate any size reception.
In addition to the array of impressive event spaces, the food here is topnotch. Named "Best Caterer" multiple times by San Diego Magazine, the Sheraton's team of culinary all-stars will serve up a custom menu that showcases fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
The Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina is a premier choice for a destination wedding: Your guests will appreciate the luxurious accommodations; recreational activities like sailing, bike riding, and paddle boarding are steps away; and the hotel is just minutes from all of San Diego's attractions. But, most importantly, you can expect a memorable celebration that reflects not only your vision, but the expertise and warmth of this venue's very accommodating staff as well.
