From the moment brides and grooms step over the threshold into the Ferrante’s Bay View Ballroom at the Monterey Marriott, their decision is made. With the highest viewpoint in Monterey and three walls of windows, the Ferrante’s Bay View Ballroom overlooks Monterey Bay and the harbor and offers couples an incredible setting for their wedding reception with the most breathtaking views imaginable.
At 3,520 square feet and able to accommodate up to 180 attendees with a dance floor and band, the Ferrante’s Bay View Ballroom is the only facility on the hotel’s 10th floor, giving brides the ability to have a wedding venue all to themselves. Your wedding party doesn’t ever have to leave the 10th floor as everything you could want or need is here and completely at your service.
One of the greatest benefits of a wedding in the Ferrante’s Bay View Ballroom is that with such an incredible view outside the windows, you don’t need to do much to decorate the room inside. Sunset brings a unique radiance to the room as the orange hues on the horizon create a special glow inside. And come nightfall, the setting becomes even more spectacular as the harbor lights twinkle like stars off in the distance.
And planning a wedding at the Marriott Monterey couldn’t be easier — particularly if you are doing so from out of town. Brides and grooms receive a Marriott Certified Wedding Planner to help them every step of the way and if you are having a destination wedding and are not familiar with the city, the Marriott Certified Wedding Planner will recommend a list of preferred vendors of everything from flowers and décor to entertainment, invitations, and more.
Today’s biggest trend in weddings seems to be simple elegance, and the Marriott Monterey certainly fits the bill. With their wide range of facilities, they can assist couples with everything they need from a rehearsal dinner to spa treatments for the wedding party at their on-site spa to a post-wedding brunch! And for those out-of-town guests, Monterey is the perfect playground for pre- and post-wedding exploration.
If you are looking for a venue to host a larger wedding, the San Carlos Ballroom at the Marriott Monterey is 8,112 square feet and can accommodate up to 450 people.
There’s never been a better time to say “I Do” to one of Monterey’s most picturesque wedding venues with a view: the Marriott Monterey.

From the beginning until the end, the Monterey Marriott was there for every step of the way to ensure that our wedding reception was a dream come true! Our wedding coordinator was accommodating, caring and flexible during our planning process and throughout the big day. We were thrilled with the level of professionalism of every Monterey Marriott staff member we encountered throughout our wedding process, from the service staff to the chef and our coordinator. Our hats off to the chef who made delicious entrees for our wedding guest. To this day, our guest still talk about the wonderful flavors of all the dishes, specifically the mushroom soup and the huge steaks served ! Thank you to the Monterey Marriott from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding day so special and memorable!!!

Wedding at Monterey Marriott
We highly recommend Monterey Marriott for wedding venue. It has an amazing view of the coast so that you don't need to worry about bad weathers. The team is also amazing. Nancy and Jamie was always prompt to respond to our emails, and took care of all the details of the wedding. We didn't need to hire a coordinator because Jamie and Nancy did an amazing job organizing everything including on the day of the wedding. On the day of the wedding, the team took care of all little details such as proactively help change our sweetheart table flowers from a tall vase to a plate so the flowers didn't blocked people from seeing us, helped put out white aisle runner right before the ceremony so that guests won't step on it and make it dirty, helped grabbed vendor meals, etc etc. We could not be happier about the wedding venue and highly recommend to anyone considering Monterey Marriott. Thank you Nancy, Jamie, and the team!

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
