everything was perfect until the end and we discovered we had left a silver oblong basket and a pair of shoes in the event room and possibly some earrings and a necklace in the changing room upstairs. your employees know where the items should go, to Anne Marie so she can call us, obviously they don't belong to you. The earrings and necklace could have been in a bag and thrown out. What I really would like to get back is my silver oblong basket. Also sound system needs replaced which we didn't know we could have brought our own.

The Handlery Hotel was the first venue that took me seriously when I said I wanted a wedding and reception with 15 guests. We grew in size to 23 guests and we were accommodated every step of the way. Ann Marie Schmidt was fabulous. Since it was a small affair, I was both the bride and the wedding coordinator. I didn't have much time nor desire to read bride magazines and Ann Marie was great in giving terrific tips for many aspects of the wedding and reception. For instance, on her suggestion we had guests sign a picture mat -- and I would have forgotten about a guest book entirely. The staff was wonderful. They were all very professional and quite pleasant. The outside private wedding ceremony venue was perfect (and it would have accommodated a lot more guests if needed). The food was very good as well. Ours was a small affair but as beautifully put on as if we had hundreds of guests. I can't recommend the Handlery Hotel and Ann Marie Schmidt any higher. It was a perfect day and much of that was because of the great venue. Thank you again Handlery and Ann Marie!

P.S. Full 5 star ratings are rare for me but it was definitely earned.

The Handlery was a great venue for a wedding reception. It was the best of both worlds with a outdoor garden and ballroom combined. If you don't like the traditional 4 wall ballroom (BORING), this alternative is very nice. The staff was friendly, courteous and helpful. They strived to make our day the best it could be.

Ann Marie and the staff at Handlery were very helpful and flexible. The entire time, we felt as if we were the most important clients. On the day of the event, we had some last minute changes which were accommodated with what seamed to be no trouble at all. Chef made the most fantastic meals and was very gratuitous to meet some of the dietary needs of a few of our guests. The venue was beautiful. I would definitely return to the Handlery for other needs.

I could not get over the exceptional service Ann Marie, Chef, and staff provided. Not only were my husband and I impressed, but our guests raved about the food, beautiful room we were in (Crystal Ballroom), the venue in general, and especially the accommodating staff. Everyone went above and beyond to make this day perfect, and they succeeded ten-fold. I couldn't be happier with every minute we spent planning and celebrating with the Handlery Hotel, San Diego. Thank you!

The attention we received from the Handerly was second to none. We received the kind of service you would expect from those fancy over priced venues. They made sure all of my guests had what they needed, and treated my husband and I like royalty. If you're looking for something special check out the Handerly.

The food was delicious and was positively commented on by our guests. The cost per person was half in comparison to the other hotels in the hotel circle area of San Diego and a third of the cost of some of the hotels in the overall San Diego area. The venue is a bit old and is not overly "glamourous", but the outdoor garden was beautiful for our ceremony. Great choice for those who are on a budget.

Handlery was an amazing location to be married at! We had our ceremony there and everyone commented on how beautiful the location was, how nice and peaceful and private it was! The garden made all of our pictures (even candids) look even more beautiful! Julia, the wedding coordinator there was amazing to work with - on top of things, very fun and personable and helped us out so much. She went above and beyond the call of duty to really make sure we were comfortable and the wedding went smoothly and perfectly! It was the most perfect site for our wedding.

The Handerly was a beautiful venue for my daughter's wedding. Ann Marie and her staff were great. Our guest did have some issues with the rooms. But overall it was a successful experience.

Ann did an amazing job with our wedding! She was always easy to get ahold of, and very flexible with our planning. We would definitely recommend her services to friends or family.

The outdoor setting for Wedding Ceremony was beautiful - the location was ideal for our wedding as we had a lot of out of town guests - having the ceremony and reception, and the option for them to stay all at the same place was perfect. Highly recommended venue!

Our wedding was beautiful. They have an outdoor ceremony site and several reception ballrooms indoors to accommodate most party sizes. We had there largest ballroom. Both sites could use some updating. The carpet looks fairly old and there are posts that could be updated. Once we got our decorations and lighting up it looked wonderful! The good here is really good also.

Okay so we originally booked with Julia. Somewhere along the line Julia left and Jennifer K. came along. We would not have booked the venue if it hadn't been for Julia. Jennifer was the worse with follow-up and doing what she said she would do. My husband had to hunt her down, so up unannounce, talk to her boss, etc. to get things accomplished. She did not return emails or calls and she was the manager! Geeze.

On the other hand. The value for the money was wonderful! My husband is from the Carribean and we wanted half Carribean dishes for dinner. Since no outside vendors were allowed, the head Chief worked with us to create our dishes and it came out fantastic! The food was really good and we got good reviews all night.

The outdoor courtyard was wonderful too. We had a Sept. wedding and it was breathtaking. The Terrace room sat up to 80 ppl for the reception and that was laid out nice.

We had a good time, just wish Jennifer was more responsive.

We had our reception in the garden and it was gorgeous!We had a dance floor and it was fun. We provided our own dj, but they provided some of the sound equipment and it sounded good. I was not too impressed by their food they offered though, and it was cold. The sales assoc for the hotel said she never misses a wedding- so she would be there to help us with whatever we needed...she missed ours. However, the hotel manager was helpful, more people showed than rsvpd and they quickly set up more tables. But over all it was beautiful and went smoothly and for the price it was definately worth it.

I wish I could give them a higher rating, the garden where the ceremony took place was beautiful, the food was delicious, but they were absolutely impossible to get ahold of, it would be at least a week, ususally longer, before they'd respond to an email or voice message. The week of my wedding, I had to call 5 times and email 4 before they responded, I understand that they were busy, but that much added stress was not appreciated right before the wedding, I really did need to make sure they had my final head count.

Now i understand why I only see the other girls name on this fabulous reviews for the handlery hotel. I wish i have met you too! I guess its not our lucky day coz the person we met was marissa dixon! She is not welcoming at all. It felt like shes just doing this job just for the sake of it. Gotta have personality. You have to make your visitors or guests comfortable at your hotel.
