Beautiful venue, amazing experience from start to finish!
We simply cannot speak highly enough of Bobby Fader and his team at Hilton San Diego in hosting our fusion Indian American wedding this past May 2019. From the very first moment we met with Bobby, to the weekend of our wedding and after, Bobby was consistently one of the most professional, considerate, and supportive people we worked with in planning our wedding. In working with many vendors, we learned Bobby is well known and highly respected in the wedding planning world in San Diego, and he completely lived up to these expectations. Bobby’s catchphrase is “I hate the word ‘no’,” as in, he will always try to accommodate your requests to help you get the wedding you want, and we found this proved to be absolutely true in working with him. We could share countless examples, but it might be easier to just say that he was able to satisfy even the most demanding of Indian family members in getting every detail just right. Bobby was probably the single most reliable person we worked with in our wedding planning—his communication was excellent, he was always quick to follow up on our questions and requests, and by the time of our wedding weekend we really felt like every detail had been covered. And throughout the stressful process of planning our wedding, Bobby did such a great job of being a calming and supportive presence: he was never fazed by even the most frantic of anxious calls or last-minute changes, and he often reminded us that at the end of the day, our wedding was going to be special and fun because of who was there, and he helped us not to sweat the small stuff (which came into place perfectly anyway with his help). In summary we would unequivocally recommend working with Bobby Fader for your wedding or any other event. You will not be disappointed!Sent on 09/28/2019
In terms of the Hilton San Diego itself as a venue, we were beyond happy with how beautiful our outdoor ceremony space and indoor reception space turned out, and the large beachside hotel/resort was perfect for accommodating our guests visiting San Diego from all over the country. The site is very near to many major attractions and to the Trolley station, which many of our guests took advantage of. As a couple, we felt very taken care of… the day before our wedding we realized we had some very noisy neighbors and the staff at Hilton immediately responded and quickly moved us to an even better room overlooking our ceremony site. It was perfect! Almost all of the guest rooms have been recently remodeled as of 2019, and the hotel staff was exceedingly professional in helping us ensure our wedding party had a great experience. We would gladly choose the Hilton San Diego again for our wedding venue.

Great Wedding Venue!
We choose the Hilton San Diego Resort and Spa/ Hilton Mission Bay for our wedding last November and we are so happy we did!Sent on 03/30/2019
We looked at about half a dozen venues in person before deciding to book with this Hilton. We set up an appointment to see the property with Bobby about 10 months before our wedding date. The property was so beautiful and Bobby was so kind and helpful we booked with them the same week.
The price per person was very reasonable. It included quite a lot, including a plated dinner, a wedding cake, water, etc. A one hour cocktail hour with complementary bar was included in the price; it was especially nice because the cocktail hour was at this bar/ lounge area near the pool area called Frescos.
We chose the have our ceremony at the gazebo, which the staff repainted a couple days before the wedding to make sure it was beautiful for our wedding day.
Bobby was very helpful in the months leading up the wedding. Picking out the linens and seating arrangements was so easy. My husband and I also were able to have a tasting at the hotel before choosing our menu. We ended up choosing the beef with duck confit ravioli and roasted chicken, which all our guests loved. Bobby and the Hilton were also very accommodating with special food request. We had quite a few vegans; Bobby provided us a few options for them. They also served them dairy-free sherbet during the reception, which was a really nice surprise. It was really thoughtful of the staff to do that.
We chose to have a hosted bar up to a certain dollar amount which was a good choice. Whatever you don’t spend, you get back. The drink menu is really customizable; we were able to include beer, wine, and a signature cocktail in our hosted-bar menu.
We had a lot of guests from out of town. We were able to make a very reason hotel room block for our guests. The staff were really helpful to everyone with their bookings and throughout their stay.
The entire staff did such a great job making us, our families, and our guests feel welcome at their property. It's such a lovely hotel and we're so happy we chose it as our venue for our big day.
Hilton San Diego Resort & Spa's reply:I was so impressed by the flower stands your dad made as well. I wish I had that talent. It would be great to see both of you again. Please feel free to stop by to say hi and maybe a cocktail or two:).....Bobby
