Niall Deegan worked with us about half way into the planning of our wedding at the Delfina. He is absolutely AMAZING! His pure goal is to ensure that every detail meets your expectations and beyond. A pure professional with a heart of gold! Anyone who has him on their side for their big day is a very lucky bride.

We chose the Delfina because of its contemporary decor that resembles the Viceroy, which they are owned by the same company. I'd like to say that you get Viceroy style at Sheraton prices!

The ballroom has views of the beautiful California coastline. On the North side you can see all the way up Malibu as well as Hollywood. To the South you can see Palos Verdes. We have an evening wedding so our guests could see the sunset then the sparkling lights of the city which add to the ambiance perfectly. The food is delicious. The staff was very accommodating. I highly recommend the Delfina.

I think that the Delfina was like, one of the 3rd or 4th venues we had looked at for ceremony and reception. We loved the way the venue looked, it's really boutique-y, and after our tour there, we decided we wanted to have the wedding there. Our contact there was Li-Ling, who is super awesome. She worked with me though most of the planning process, until our wedding coordinator took over the last month or so. They were able to work within our budget, which was super important to us. We showed up there on Friday, for our Saturday wedding, for rehearsal and stuff. Li-Ling was always there to greet me when we arrived, making sure she was taking care of anything we needed. We had several out of town guests staying at the hotel, and she made sure they were taken care of as well. The wedding ceremony and reception were perfectly setup, in the way we had specified, and the day went off without a hitch. It was super nice to not stress out the day of the wedding. We had so much fun. And the food was absolutely AMAZING. All of the service staff and bartenders the day of were very professional. Li-Ling Li was our catering manager and Brenda Coykendall was our hotel room block manager, and both of them did a PHENOMENAL job! Thanks for making sure our day was epic!

Li-Ling was such a great Event Coordinator. She was responsive from beginning to end. She was always there when we had any questions. I really enjoyed working with her. In addition, David the Catering Manager helped us execute the day of. He made sure everything was great and made us feel at home when we got to the hotel. All the staff was super helpful including the bartenders, waiters, banquet staff, etc.

Great view and wedding packages! I'm happy we had our reception here.

We couldn't have been happier!

My wife Toni and I are LA natives and foodies. We've lived in Santa Monica/Pasadena 15 years if it helps qualify our food standards. We wanted a classy wedding, but not stuffy nor extravagant. We wanted a reception with a view over an outdoor wedding. Even LA rains sometimes. Why have a reception in Santa Monica if you don't know you're in Santa Monica? Thus we didn't want a windowless, claustrophobic ballroom, which is all that was offered by some much more expensive places.

What we got:

-killer food, hors d'oeuvres, house-made cocktails. (cocktails were extra but worth it). Perfectly executed salmon and filet. The chef gave us a personal promise during tasting that he would *not* overcook the filet, and he delivered.
-killer view from the penthouse. We started at 6pm with cocktail hour and our guests enjoyed sunlight, sunset and evening views of the city, mountains and the bay.
-a well-organized gig. we've seen a few complaints of the coordinators. Yes, the person we originally signed with left the Delfina, but his replacement in-house coordinator Kylee picked up the pieces and did a flawless job.
-an affordable event by LA standards. Price some other places near the beach. You won't get a better deal for a high-class venue near the beach. Just remember this is 8 blocks from the beach, not on the beach, if that's a dealbreaker for you.
-beautiful rooms at affordable rates. Plus, they and the lobby were recently redone. Don't let the outside of the hotel fool you. Look at the profile pictures. This place is NICE.
-Great upgrades, including the entrees, cocktails and Viennese table. Our upgrades were reasonably priced, just above the standard pricing.
-VERY friendly and attentive staff throughout the cocktail hour and reception. This includes the bartenders, servers, coordinator, and reception desk. They made us and our guests feel special.

If there is a negative to give, you shouldn't walk to the beach/promenade at night from this hotel. But many of our out of town guests did do so during the day.

Thank you Delfina!

Just held my wedding reception at the Sheraton Delfina and had a wonderful experience!! Li-Ling, our banquet manager, was very flexible and easy to work with throughout the entire process! She was very responsive to emails and work with us on all our little requests. The food here is also EXCELLENT! With such a gorgeous view from the penthouse and such yummy food, we really could not say no, especially when we would be paying about the same at any other location. The ocean view suite included in our package was also amazing!! During the reception, the food was served on time and everything flowed smoothly. We even got to save our own uneaten food to take back to our room after the banquet. Thank you Sheraton Delfina for being an awesome host to our wedding reception and guests!

I selected the Sheraton Delfina because of their fantastic view in their ballroom. I wanted to get married in Santa Monica but did not want an outdoor wedding. The staff at the Sheraton Delfina were great to work with. They were professional and attentive throughout the entire wedding process. My only issue would be that they switched contact people on me 3 times in the 9 months we planned our wedding. Each time they switched contact people, we had to review all the wedding details over again. However, each person we worked with was attentive and very professional. Overall the wedding went well. The hotel went out of their way to accommodate our request and was very involved the night of the wedding. The food and service was great throughout the entire day. The hotel recently went through a renovation so the decor is very modern and bright. The only issue with having a wedding here is that there are not that many places to take pictures on-site. You will need to plan photography locations out with your photographer to make sure you get all the pictures you need.
