Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina is releasing a new catering program for meetings and events called "Neighborhood," inspired by the flavors, culinary specialties and cultural diversity of the dining scene around San Diego's neighborhoods.

The program features custom, chef-crafted menus, complemented by theme and decor, and overlooks the marina and San Diego Bay on the hotel's Marina Terrace. Planners can design an experience and choose flavors reflective of the distinct neighborhoods around San Diego.

These neighborhoods include Little Italy, Point Loma, Barrio Logan, East Village/Ballpark, Beach Communities, North Park, La Jolla and Gaslamp Quarter.

“The Neighborhood event experience gives planners creative power to design an authentic, one-of-a-kind experience of San Diego’s culinary culture,” says hotel general manager Tim Herrmann. “As the city's leading destination for meetings and events, we believe in weaving the ease of our state-of-the-art property with San Diego’s vibrant gastronomic landscape to fully immerse guests in our city’s sights, sounds and flavors, all of which contribute to making meetings at the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina so unique."

After two-years of refurbishing, General Mendoza, general manager of Sheraton Pasadena, revealed the completion of the hotel’s multimillion-dollar renovation. The property is excited to offer its reimagined accommodations, meeting space and public areas including its Restaurant Soleil.


The new concept restaurant designed by Howe & Brown Hospitality has maritime inspired food and craft cocktails that will prove to be a delight for travelers and locals. Using locally-sourced ingredients, the cuisine emphasizes technique and texture to highlight the exuberance of in-season seafood. 


Despite being open for only 15 months, Somni is awarded two Michelin stars. Led by Chef Aitor Zabala with Chef José Andrés, the SLS Beverly Hills restaurant celebrates the honor as well as the Michelin Guide’s return to Los Angeles after a decade.
