Thank You, Lisa!

With most of our guests visiting San Diego from out of town, we wanted to have a wedding weekend welcome party in a San Diego hot spot - Old Town. We originally had our sights set on Barra Barra, however - in connecting with Lisa, she lead us in the perfect direction to hold our special event in the courtyard of The Cosmopolitan. Lisa was incredibly kind and patient through multiple postponements from the start of planning our event in early 2019 to finally celebrating July 2, 2022. Our guests found the party to be such a treat - great atmosphere, food, music and drinks. Thank you to Lisa and her team for coordinating a special evening to welcome our wedding guests to San Diego!

Wonderful wedding venue with service, charm, and history

My wife and I recently had our wedding at the Cosmopolitan Hotel. Our day was absolutely perfect and we thank Lynn for all her expertise and planning with our wedding. The food and drink were great, the rooms were comfy, the venue was beautiful, but most especially the service was above and beyond excellent! We received many compliments from our guests on how polite and professional the hotel staff was during the wedding. They really went out of their way to make sure that everyone was satisfied. Thank you so much for making our wedding the perfect day!

Dream Wedding!

No one from our party has been able to get over how absolutely perfect The Cosmopolitan Hotel & Restaurant was for our wedding! If you're looking for a rustic but classy feel with total privacy, plenty of space, gorgeous architecture, and fantastic service, this is your place. The staff were all fantastic and made us feel like family, and the events coordinator Lynn Simpson is a total pro and incredibly sweet - planning was a breeze. We opted to rent out all 10 rooms at the hotel so that we were the only ones on property and our guests loved the freedom to be able to enjoy the upper veranda and retreat to the guest rooms for a moment if needed. We had a buffet and the food was fantastic! It all tasted very homemade, not the frozen hotel food you get at bigger properties. I think my favorite part was that the venue was so gorgeous on its own that we hardly had to spend any money on decor! We just did simple candles in glass cylinders with a little greenery for centerpieces, and brought some picture frames and mason jars with candles for the lounge tables by the bar and done! My goals for our wedding were a to keep it low-maintenance (venue to provide food, furniture, linens, etc), have a beautiful outdoor venue, and stick to a fairly frugal budget - The Cosmo helped me meet all of these goals without any quality spared. This place is a total hidden gem and we couldn't be happier to have chosen it for our big day!

The Cosmopolitan Hotel in Old Town is a fantastic place to have your wedding! Lynn is a total sweetheart too, so working with them to get everything just the way you want it is easy. Two thumbs up for this venue and it's staff. P.S. Kinda unrelated, but the salsa is awesome! Try it! David Leeds (DJ LEEDS)
