My husband and I stayed in the Presidential Suite for our wedding night and it was nothing short of amazing. The wonderful staff left us a complementary bottle of Chardonnay with a card congratulating us and thanking us for our patronage. Not to mention giving my mom and I a short tour of the room the week before, when we stopped by to make sure it was a decent choice for the big day (Having only read reviews online about it). The front desk staff is young, cheerful and very accomodating. When my husband and I arrived after our wedding, we were greeted and given fresh baked cookies and some fruit to snack on. After a quick check-in we headed to our room. It's a smaller hotel than we've stayed in before, but it had a nice "private" feeling to it, perhaps due to the size and more upscale decor. We had a perfect view of the pool area and the ocean from our top floor, centre room suite. It was incredible falling asleep and waking up to the gentle sound of the Pacific Ocean right outside our large balcony window. In fact, the way the room and bed are positioned, we could actually watch the ocean as we lie in bed. It was far enough into the room, however, that there was no worry of anyone outside looking in. The spa tub in suite was huge and extremely comfortable, easily fitting my 6'2" husband and my 5'2" self with room to spare. The toiletries were nice and they provided toothbrushes and toothpaste in addition to the usual upscale soaps, hair products and lotions. Our toilet did stop working after one use, but after a quick call to the front desk, an "Engineer" came and fixed it within minutes. We were very impressed.
For all the bigger name hotels we could've picked for our wedding night in San Diego, we're both in agreement that we made the best choice going with a smaller, but perhaps more detail-oriented hotel such as the Pacific Terrace. We'll certainly be back next November to celebrate our anniversary.
