We celebrated our wedding at the BayView Ballroom in Berkeley Marina in a great and pleasant atmosphere.Sent on 10/22/2020
The space was big enough for our 40 guests and the food and service was what we expected.

Great Venue, Great Team
We had our wedding reception at DoubleTree by Hilton Berkeley Marina on 10/10/20 evening.
Their amazing team was so flexible, responsive, and hard-working for us. The pandemic really made planning this wedding very difficult, with policy and countless other changes on a weekly basis. Thanks to Natasha and team, we didn't have to worry--everything felt super smooth.
The ballroom was the perfect size, and pretty aesthetic--all glass. The view to the pier outside was a very nice backdrop, and a great place to take photos before the reception started.
Natasha helped my friends and family prepare the space ahead of our arrival, and was even present for much of the wedding to help oversee the program success.
The food was great. We opted for the Steak and Salmon, and got Crab Cakes as starters. The house wine was really good, too. A few of our guests even asked us what the wine was afterwards.
One thing to know is that at the time of our wedding, there was a very large homeless encampment about 1 mile from the venue. People driving to this venue will see this encampment. It really wasn't an issue for us. We considered it low to no impact on our experience, and this uncontrollable external factor was probably the only issue with the venue. If it was within the team's control, it was made perfect for us.
Overall, I enthusiastically endorse this venue, and especially the team for making our Special Day exactly that.Sent on 11/07/2020

Gorgeous Hotel & Amazing Staff!
We started planning our wedding before COVID and had reached out to the hotel back in summer of 2019. Our wedding was on Treasure Island and we live in the east bay, so we wanted to find a hotel along Hwy 80 for our guests. We looked at every hotel in Oakland, Emeryville, and Berkeley because we had a large wedding party and needed enough space for 25-30 people to get ready, including vendors. This was the only hotel that not only had a HUGE 2-floor Presidential Suite, but also had adjoining rooms for some of our wedding party to stay in. The hotel looks out onto the Berkeley Marina and has lots of outdoor space. There is a dedicated parking lot as well as free parking across the street. It is close to a small trail where we took our sunset photos.Sent on 12/12/2020
We booked everything through Shaun Valentine, who was incredibly professional and helpful and thought we were all set for our wedding in summer 2020. Then COVID happened. When we reached out to the hotel in spring 2020, Natasha Norman was so helpful and reassuring. She offered a very flexible cancellation policy for our room block and kept us up to date on how the hotel was handling COVID procedures.
Ultimately, we decided to follow through with our wedding, albeit a much smaller abbreviated version. Natasha set up a beautiful space outdoors for us to have a socially distant rehearsal lunch. Every common space had sanitizer and was cleaned regularly. Every hotel room was sealed with stickers verifying that it had been deep cleaned. We and our guests felt very safe.
Natasha & Shaun and the entire hotel staff really made us feel welcome and special. We were under so much stress planning...and replanning...and replanning our COVID wedding and it felt great to be able to rely on them.
We are happy to report that no one involved in our wedding, neither guests nor vendors, caught COVID and we know that is partially due to the safety of our hotel! We loved staying there and are hoping to spend our 1 year anniversary there! Absolutely would recommend them to anyone having a special event!
