Why You'll Love This Place
A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue ReviewRead More Show Less
This luxurious, urban oasis offers the quintessential San Francisco experience—relaxed sophistication, a prime location on the Embarcadero, front row views of the historic Ferry Building, and dazzling panoramas of the bay and Bay Bridge. Add in iconic trolley cars and a treelined promenade just outside and you’ve got a love letter to the city.
Their rooftop terraces are the perfect setting for an al fresco ceremony, especially the spacious Plaza Terrace that can accommodate up to 80, and the more intimate Waterfront Terrace for a group of up to 40. Both enjoy sweeping vistas of the bay and beyond, as well as the financial district’s dynamic cityscape. (If you opt for a “family and besties only” gathering, you might consider the Cielo Terrace and its elegant, adjoining suite.)
It may seem hard to beat those fabulous outdoor sites … until you see the Americano Lido Lounge, where you can say “I do” and/or mingle over cocktails indoors. The semicircular wall of floor-to-ceiling windows makes a beautiful backdrop for exchanging vows, and the dramatic modern chandelier adds a cool designer touch.
Options abound for your reception, from the more traditional Amalfi Coast Room, which can be styled to suit your vision, to the open-air Americano Patio, right across the street from the promenade and all the sights of the Embarcadero. As night falls, you’ll appreciate the glittering lights of the bridge, boats, and surrounding skyscrapers. In winter, when the patio is tented, chandeliers and strings of twinkle lights embedded in the surrounding foliage lend a warm glow to the area. And for the ultimate, seamless celebration, they offer an Americano Restaurant buyout for weekend events. That means you have use of the Lido Lounge, the award-winning restaurant (known for its handcrafted Italian and American cuisine), and the patio.
For those who want to stay past the last dance, this boutique hotel boasts upscale accommodations, most with stunning water or city views, free WiFi, and even pet bowls and treats for your furry friend. Also, couples booking a ceremony and reception package receive a complimentary room for their honeymoon night.
Indulge in some pre- or post-wedding pampering at the spa, work out in their fitness center, order room service, or cross the street to savor gourmet goodies in the world-famous Ferry Building. Then walk around the waterfront and take in the fabulous atmosphere. You can’t get much more romantic than this!
