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."

Westin Long Beach is anticipating wrapping up renovations by June. Since beginning in January, renovations have included updating guest rooms and hallways to bring calm and well-being to travelers' experiences. Fresh, cool color palettes are incorporated in the furniture, and guest rooms will include Heavenly Mattresses and 55-inch televisions.
