Presidential Ballroom Social


Choose from six exceptionally romantic venues to host a one-of-a-kind wedding reception in downtown San Diego.

Bivouac Ballroom Wedding

Bivouac Ballroom

Capacity: 300

A breathtaking venue, the Bivouac Ballroom features 5,632 square feet of space, plus a 204-square-foot stage. It exudes 1920s-era glamour, replete with spectacular vaulted ceilings, shimmering hanging pendants and classic woodwork detailing.

Historically, in1910, the Bivouac Ballroom served as our hotel's Bivouac Dining Room, a formal restaurant honoring President Ulysses S. Grant's military legacy, replete with murals of famous war victories and flags to represent each nation. Soon after, it transformed into a popular San Diego Speakeasy during Prohibition. In the 1940s, the space evolved and became known as "La Plata Real," welcoming legendary entertainment to its stage. Eventually the nightclub was transformed again into a ballroom and in 1970, the space played host the very first Comic-Con.

Today, the Bivouac Ballroom is one of San Diego's most requested wedding reception venues, providing a majestic setting for glamorous events.

Crystal Ballroom

Crystal Ballroom

Unveiled in 1927 as the Italianate Ballroom, the ornate space was reserved for San Diego’s elite, and features its own private entrance from the street. Restored to embody its original splendor, the Crystal Ballroom today boasts a black and gold travertine floor, embellished European plasterwork and a hand-painted ceiling.

This signature venue sparkles with four Crystal chandeliers and a romantic fireplace; it is adjoined by a marble-lined reception foyer, showcasing an intricate Spanish Colonial carved ceiling and original bronze entry doors. The Crystal Ballroom is equally elegant for wedding ceremonies and small receptions.

Palm Court Social

Palm Court

Capacity: 250

Presenting 3,705 square feet of space, Palm Court is located off of our hotel lobby. Featuring ample natural light from a wall of windows looking out onto downtown San Diego, the Palm Court ballroom pays homage to our hotel's 1910 open-air Palm Garden terrace designed by Balboa Park landscaper, Kate Sessions. Adding a touch of glamour to this storied venue, the Palm Court also features a stunning collection of nine chandeliers dangling from its 14-foot-high ceilings.

Originally opened as the 1910 Grant Hotel Dining Room, and later transforming into our hotel's popular coffee shop in the 1950s, the sophisticated ambiance of the Palm Court ballroom today is ideal for an evening or afternoon reception, or a post-wedding day brunch.
