    We held our ceremony and reception on the roof deck of the Porto Vista hotel on 1/25/14. Because of some staff turnover, we had some issues and miscommunications during the planning process. But, John took care of us and in the end we were very happy with our choice of venue.

    Our guests loved the location of the hotel and all that the neighborhood had to offer. The Glassdoor restaurant was very accommodating to my large family, and everyone was happy with their rooms.

    We didn't use a wedding coordinator, and the hotel was very accommodation about giving us ample time to set up, and Les was a big help in the set up process. The space is very customizable to colors/styles and can accommodate a large crowd easily.

    The food came out amazing, and our guests raved about it all. The chef took care of us, and even did a second tasting with us to ensure we got exactly what we wanted.

    The weather was amazing, and being able to have an outdoor wedding in January was a treat. Overall, we loved our wedding and are happy with our choice. We felt it was a great value, particularly for the San Diego area.

    Our wedding turned out beautiful. There were a few hiccups throughout the planning process and the actual day of. My main complaint was there seemed to be a lack of organization on the behalf of the wedding coordinator at the hotel.
