For couples wanting European flare without the oceanic flight, look no further than The Westgate Hotel in San Diego, California! This luxury hotel is popular for destination weddings and honeymoons and sets itself apart by its over-the-top design inspired by the Palace of Versailles in France. More specifically, the lobby is modeled after the anterooms of the historically grand palace. To get married at the former home of French royalty would cost millions, but The Westgate Hotel in San Diego is much more manageable. The property is in the process of putting together destination wedding-specific packages, but they will begin at 25K and please see below for what will be included.
