Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Perched on Fisherman's Wharf in the shadow of the Golden Gate Bridge, this historic 1907 hotel has long attracted couples searching for authenticity, style, and charm. Whimsical nautical styling, postcard-perfect views, and thoughtful, customized service from the planning staff combine for a truly spectacular celebration.
  • Gather with loved ones in the Del Monte Courtyard, where you can say "I do" against the backdrop of the hotel's historic brick exterior and light-wrapped trees. Truly exceptional receptions are held in the Golden Gate Ballroom, which is awash in neutral tans, taupes, and golds to highlight the historic architecture and complement your unique wedding vision.
  • Being just a cork's throw away from California's food and wine wonderlands, the in-house catering team from the hotel's popular Blue Mermaid Restaurant know just how to showcase the best of the region in inventive, carefully crafted menus and beverages.
