California's San Diego Marriott Del Mar Completes $3.3 Million
Renovation of Public Spaces and its 284 Guest Rooms

San Diego, C.A. (October 3, 2012)
—  The San Diego Marriott Del Mar is unveiling a brand new look — redesigned guest rooms, an all-new Concierge Lounge and upgraded event space. The hotel recently completed a $3.3 million renovation that features a fresh new look at Arterra Restaurant and extensive room upgrades with a stylish, Southern California design from CRA Studios in Santa Monica.

The renovation featured an overhaul of the hotel’s 284 guest rooms, including the addition of 10 allergy-friendly PURE rooms. Chic yet inviting, the updated suites boast a separate living room area that merges modern conveniences with the comforts of home. Guest rooms now feature queen mattresses instead of double beds and plush Marriott Signature Bedding. For tech-friendly travelers, each suite now has a flat screen TV, an iHome docking station for iPads, iPhones or iPods, a new sound system, and a comfortable workstation with wireless Internet.

The ideal oasis for business travelers looking to unwind, the San Diego Marriott Del Mar’s new Concierge Lounge offers the best perks to make any corporate stay complete. The new lounge offers hearty and healthy breakfast options, evening hors d’oeuvres, and an Honor Bar. The stylish space offers ample, comfortable seating with access to reading materials, computer workstations and flat screen TVs so guests can meet their business and relaxation needs.

With 14 function rooms, unique indoor-outdoor space, and more than 12,000 sq. ft. of meeting and event space, the San Diego Marriott Del Mar is an event planner’s dream. The Grand Ballroom offers a sophisticated, yet elegant meeting space and can be transformed to meet the group's unique taste and style. Featuring high ceilings, wall sconces, and beautiful chandeliers, the Grand Ballroom is an exquisite space for receptions or seated functions. With seating for up to 480 guests, the room provides ample room for pre-meeting and registration set-up.

San Diego is one of the country’s top wedding destinations and the San Diego Marriott Del Mar is pulling out all of the stops for couples to enjoy wedding bliss. Warm and inviting, the Rancho Santa Fe Ballroom is the ideal space for an intimate wedding reception. The hotel’s expert wedding planners work directly with each couple to customize the lavish space to add personal touches to match their own unique style. The hotel is also fully equipped to accommodate pre- and post-event wedding events like the engagement party, bridal shower, bachelor/bachelorette party, rehearsal dinner or post-wedding brunch.

The hotel’s signature restaurant, Arterra, has also refreshed its dining room, bar, and private dining space to offer a simple, yet refined atmosphere. Tucked away from the main dining room, the private dining space is perfect for small group meetings or luncheons. The space offers an elegant and intimate setting with modern light fixtures and ample lighting.

A San Diego innovator in field to fork fresh, Arterra Restaurant and Outdoor Lounge specializes in contemporary, seasonal cuisine that reflects the best of Southern California. Arterra’s menu is eclectic, yet approachable and created from fresh, local and organic ingredients. Arterra is also known for its renowned sushi bar, with Sushi Master, Andrew Hoh, crafting modern, flavorful dishes from the freshest sashimi grade seafood.

For business or leisure travelers looking to unwind, Arterra offers a spacious Outdoor Lounge to grab small bites, a fine wine, or specialty cocktails. Arterra takes pride in featuring the finest wines available from reputable West Coast growers and producers with an emphasis on small-production, organic blends to match the equally fresh fare. Handcrafted California beers and specialty cocktails round out the diverse beverage menu to perfectly complement any dish.

Positioned 20 miles north of San Diego, the San Diego Marriott Del Mar is a convenient seaside getaway. The hotel is close to beaches, shopping at the historic Del Mar Downtown Historic Village and the Del Mar Fairgrounds. The hotel has been awarded the highest level of certification in the state of California's Green Lodging Program. Stunning outdoor patio areas and a resort-style pool with cabanas make this Del Mar hotel a vacation destination for both tourists and locals alike.
