    Awesome resort and wedding venue!

    I can’t say enough amazing things about San Diego Mission Bay Resort. The resort coordinator, Donna, was a pleasure to work with and she went above and beyond to make sure that our wedding day went smoothly. My wedding guests loved all the amenities offered by the resort. Highly recommended!

    e will We will be returning for our 5yr and 10yr anniversaries!

    We booked our Sept 2021 wedding originally in Nov 2019 due to COVID. We fell in love with the venue with the beach.
    Venue was great with us in downsizing and rescheduling. The resort was renovated, staff was uber friendly and accommodating, everything from handing out all my 120 guests gift bags, to special needs for a 10 piece band! to setting up a UNI (Sea Urchin) STATION and a FRESH COCONUT station!
    They made us a custom dessert petit 4s that fit our theme. The venue coordinator Donna has been doing this a long time, she is responsive and was personally there every single event and even rehearsal and took care of every hiccup before they actually occurred.

    The went way above and beyond just what their banquet offerings and accommodated ALL my custom orders as we wanted to stand out!

    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!

    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.
