The staff was amazing and accommodating. Any issues that came up they handled right away we could have not asked for a better venue for our wedding!
Perfect garden to add personal touches for wedding ceremony.
There's large space for cocktail hour and reception.
Coordinator Ann Marie is so helpful. She has plenty of ideas to help couples have a smooth wedding. She is slways available to answer questions.
Ann Marie is fun to work with she makes sure that it is the wedding that the couples dream of. From beginning to the end she was there!
I would highly recommend handlery everything was perfect and stressful Ann Marie was amazing she took care of every detail she was very a compensating to our needs and we had the Mexican buffet the food was outstanding.... Thanks for making our day so special Scott & Sonia Berthiaume
Thank you, Sonia & Scott! It was our pleasure to host your Wedding here at the Handlery. We're so pleased to have Ann Marie back and working with all of our couples again! Best wishes to you both!
The Handlery Hotel was a wonderful venue for my wedding. It was very beautiful and everything was done well. The event planner was wonderful and very helpful. The food and service was amazing!
It was our pleasure to be part of your Wedding. We're thrilled you and your guests enjoyed our venue, food and service! Thank you, Marissa!
everything was perfect until the end and we discovered we had left a silver oblong basket and a pair of shoes in the event room and possibly some earrings and a necklace in the changing room upstairs. your employees know where the items should go, to Anne Marie so she can call us, obviously they don't belong to you. The earrings and necklace could have been in a bag and thrown out. What I really would like to get back is my silver oblong basket. Also sound system needs replaced which we didn't know we could have brought our own.
Thank you for your review Candi. We're very pleased that you enjoyed your wedding here at the Handlery! We're geniunely sorry that we were not able to find your missing items. Our team members are generally great at turning everything into our lost and found department. We'll be sure to contact you right away if your basket turns up.
The Handlery Hotel was the first venue that took me seriously when I said I wanted a wedding and reception with 15 guests. We grew in size to 23 guests and we were accommodated every step of the way. Ann Marie Schmidt was fabulous. Since it was a small affair, I was both the bride and the wedding coordinator. I didn't have much time nor desire to read bride magazines and Ann Marie was great in giving terrific tips for many aspects of the wedding and reception. For instance, on her suggestion we had guests sign a picture mat -- and I would have forgotten about a guest book entirely. The staff was wonderful. They were all very professional and quite pleasant. The outside private wedding ceremony venue was perfect (and it would have accommodated a lot more guests if needed). The food was very good as well. Ours was a small affair but as beautifully put on as if we had hundreds of guests. I can't recommend the Handlery Hotel and Ann Marie Schmidt any higher. It was a perfect day and much of that was because of the great venue. Thank you again Handlery and Ann Marie!
P.S. Full 5 star ratings are rare for me but it was definitely earned.
We're happy to accommodate all weddings big or small and so pleased you selected us for your wedding! Thank you!!
The Handlery was a great venue for a wedding reception. It was the best of both worlds with a outdoor garden and ballroom combined. If you don't like the traditional 4 wall ballroom (BORING), this alternative is very nice. The staff was friendly, courteous and helpful. They strived to make our day the best it could be.
Thank you, Maya! We're pleased to have been part of your special day and so glad you enjoyed our venue and staff!
Ann Marie and the staff at Handlery were very helpful and flexible. The entire time, we felt as if we were the most important clients. On the day of the event, we had some last minute changes which were accommodated with what seamed to be no trouble at all. Chef made the most fantastic meals and was very gratuitous to meet some of the dietary needs of a few of our guests. The venue was beautiful. I would definitely return to the Handlery for other needs.
Thank you for having your special day here with us at the Handlery! We take pride in our food and service and are so pleased we were able to accommodate your special requests and make your wedding day spectacular!
I could not get over the exceptional service Ann Marie, Chef, and staff provided. Not only were my husband and I impressed, but our guests raved about the food, beautiful room we were in (Crystal Ballroom), the venue in general, and especially the accommodating staff. Everyone went above and beyond to make this day perfect, and they succeeded ten-fold. I couldn't be happier with every minute we spent planning and celebrating with the Handlery Hotel, San Diego. Thank you!
Thank you Carlin! We're so pleased we were able to meet all of your expectations and make your wedding day unforgettable!
Ann Marie Schmidt the wedding coordinator negotiated a fair price.She also handled the fine details.The food was excellent as was the presentaion
Thank you, Carina! We're glad to hear Ann Marie was able to assist you with all of your needs! We take pride in our food and happy you enjoyed it too!
The attention we received from the Handerly was second to none. We received the kind of service you would expect from those fancy over priced venues. They made sure all of my guests had what they needed, and treated my husband and I like royalty. If you're looking for something special check out the Handerly.
Stefani, thank you for choosing us for your special day! It was our pleasure to host your beautiful wedding!
We had 190 people!! And the courtyard is AMAZING in June!!! Best location, perfect weather!! Loved every bit of this day! :)
The food was delicious and was positively commented on by our guests. The cost per person was half in comparison to the other hotels in the hotel circle area of San Diego and a third of the cost of some of the hotels in the overall San Diego area. The venue is a bit old and is not overly "glamourous", but the outdoor garden was beautiful for our ceremony. Great choice for those who are on a budget.
Amazing space (crystal ballroom), attentive servers, great reception area while waiting for us to arrive, Fabulous food!!
The venue was very nice, the staff was great, and overall the wedding was a success.
Always a pleasure working with Anne. She's a great asset for handlery. Very attentive to details and helped my clients throughout the wedding process
Thank you, Jacqueline! We agree, Ann Marie is great and does a fantastic job with all of our special events!
