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."

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.   

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.
