San Diego boasts attractions, fine year-round weather and beaches. But, hidden by the Marina just across from Coronado Island lies one of the most enchanting resorts. The Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina, with its 1,360 guest rooms is perfectly framed by the San Diego bay and the heart of Downtown. The vibrant and lush setting of the resort makes anyone feel as if they are in a tropical paradise.

Marriott Marquis San Diego not only provides you with a plethora of amenities for fun in the sun, but also expeditiously offers many luxurious options and services to make your wedding the event of the year. The ballrooms, wedding venues, and meeting rooms have a vast range of sizes and amenities including rooms with views of the pool, downtown or the bay. These are our favorite picks: 

The Marina Ballroom offers a stylish ballroom that comfortably seats between 150 to 700 guests that will enjoy beautiful, waterfront views. It is currently being renovated to bring a fresh new look to compliment the views and will be done in late 2024.

The Marriott Grand Ballroom, one of the largest ballrooms in California at 25,000 sq, ft. opens from a grand foyer with expansive and impressive windows that would beautifully illuminate your guests as they enjoy a cocktail hour or walk into the ballroom. Inside, you’ll find some of the finest decor including sleek and contemporary chandeliers.

For an outdoor setting that perfectly encompasses the San Diego feel, The Coronado Terrace is perfect for ‘I Do’s’ under the sun. Boasting the only private terrace in Downtown San Diego, the Coronado Terrace overlooks the San Diego Bay and gives the most stunning panoramic views of it and Coronado Island.

Just minutes from the San Diego International airport, your friends and family will have an easy, expedited way to the hotel and venue. Once there, the full list of options of amenities will be sure to have guests happy during pre- and post-wedding fun.

The sparkling jewel of the resort is the oasis of the swimming pool. Set apart from the rest of the hotels in downtown, it is the largest pool in the area with the largest pool deck to lay out and enjoy the sunshine in. As a family friendly hotel, it would not be complete without a separate children’s pool for the youngest guests to enjoy. Fancy a nice cold drink while soaking up the rays? The Agave Bar and Grill is just steps away from water and offers an impressive menu of drinks and bites.

Marina Kitchen inside of the hotel is an elegant flex dining space that welcomes guests at any state of their trip. With grand floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the pool, the menu reflects a spin on American cuisine enhancing your experience. Or if grab and go is more your speed, the conveniently located market provides a menu of delicious sandwiches and drinks along with some locally sourced treats.

Enter a private elevator that will take you to a place of ultimate pampering. The Hideaway Spa provides respite for the body while indulging in its many services, such as massages, facials, and body scrubs. To keep your skin looking its best before celebrations, The Hideaway offers a wide array of skincare products for sale. 

Luxury, coastal charm, waterfront experiences and warm hospitality, the Marriott Marquis will be a stay (and event) to cherish forever!
