    Best Customer Service Ever!

    We toured the Marriott back in 2019. Our wedding was originally Oct. 2020 but of course we postponed due to COVID. Michele was absolutely amazing. We rescheduled our wedding 8 times. She was so patient with us and helped us with everything and anything. The day of the wedding Michele was amazing. She helped with the big and little things. We didn't have a wedding coordinator and everyone told me that we would regret it but with Michele I never once had a worry about the venue, our vendors, or the food, and really the day of. She even kept some of the family drama calmed down which was totally out of her job description but she is what made my day run so smoothly. I would hold another event here just because of Michele.

The Ferrantes Room at the Monterey Marriott affords a beautiful water view. The room is elegant but does not feel like a cookie cutter hotel ballroom, so you have the amenities of a hotel yet you have a room that feels completely private. The downtown location is very convenient for your guests as they are within walking distance to restaurants, a movie theater, Custom House Plaza, and Fisherman's Wharf. Steve Ezzo Entertainment
