Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Nestled on the serene shores of Shelter Island, this welcoming waterfront hotel exudes island charm. Stunning panoramas of the marina, Point Loma, and La Playa Cove—all brightened by San Diego's abundant sunshine— are on dreamy display from every guest room and the lovely event spaces.
  • Say "I do" in the garden as the sun sets over the marina; from there, the Grand Marina and Sunset Ballrooms beckon, offering a fresh, coastal-inspired palette and bright walls of windows that bring the outside in.
  • Their generous packages make planning a breeze, with an experienced catering staff on hand to help customize your menu to fit your foodie palate and fabulous event planners to set up a destination wedding weekend your guests won't soon forget.
