From the moment brides and grooms step over the threshold into the Ferrante’s Bay View Ballroom at the Monterey Marriott, their decision is made. With the highest viewpoint in Monterey and three walls of windows, the Ferrante’s Bay View Ballroom overlooks Monterey Bay and the harbor and offers couples an incredible setting for their wedding reception with the most breathtaking views imaginable.

At 3,520 square feet and able to accommodate up to 180 attendees with a dance floor and band, the Ferrante’s Bay View Ballroom is the only facility on the hotel’s 10th floor, giving brides the ability to have a wedding venue all to themselves. Your wedding party doesn’t ever have to leave the 10th floor as everything you could want or need is here and completely at your service.

One of the greatest benefits of a wedding in the Ferrante’s Bay View Ballroom is that with such an incredible view outside the windows, you don’t need to do much to decorate the room inside. Sunset brings a unique radiance to the room as the orange hues on the horizon create a special glow inside. And come nightfall, the setting becomes even more spectacular as the harbor lights twinkle like stars off in the distance.

And planning a wedding at the Marriott Monterey couldn’t be easier — particularly if you are doing so from out of town. Brides and grooms receive a Marriott Certified Wedding Planner to help them every step of the way and if you are having a destination wedding and are not familiar with the city, the Marriott Certified Wedding Planner will recommend a list of preferred vendors of everything from flowers and décor to entertainment, invitations, and more.

Today’s biggest trend in weddings seems to be simple elegance, and the Marriott Monterey certainly fits the bill. With their wide range of facilities, they can assist couples with everything they need from a rehearsal dinner to spa treatments for the wedding party at their on-site spa to a post-wedding brunch! And for those out-of-town guests, Monterey is the perfect playground for pre- and post-wedding exploration.

If you are looking for a venue to host a larger wedding, the San Carlos Ballroom at the Marriott Monterey is 8,112 square feet and can accommodate up to 450 people.

There’s never been a better time to say “I Do” to one of Monterey’s most picturesque wedding venues with a view: the Marriott Monterey.

I had my wedding on 5/25/2014 at the Ferrante's Ball Room of the Monterey Marriott hotel. The venue is absolutely breathtaking, with a panoramic view of the entire Monterey Bay. I had wanted to have an outdoor wedding, but later changed my mind because I didn’t want to take the risk of having the unpredictable weather of Monterey ruin my wedding experience. Ferrante’s gave me the same view without the chills of cold ocean winds, which was perfect. The hotel’s wedding package offered many services for free, such as a salon, champagne toast, cocktail reception’s hors d'oeuvre, etc. The hotel was also generous enough to offer me and my husband a complimentary stay in one of their presidential suites for the wedding night. I also wanted to give a shout out to my event planner Blanca Erban. I reached out to her last November and since then she has been following up with me constantly to remind me of the planning timelines and offer advices on vendor selections. She tried her best within her means to give me discounts on ceremony packages and finishing touches. She communicated with me and my husband efficiently on menu tasting, wedding themes, decorations, rehearsals, etc. and was always available whenever I needed her, even on the days that she’s out of office. I had specific designs for the decors for the arch, the chairs and the reception venue. I laid out my instructions and the decors in the salon for Blanca in the morning of wedding day and by noon everything was already arranged exactly as I had envisioned. Blanca literally read my mind. At the beginning of the ceremony, our DJ encountered some technical problems which delayed the start of the ceremony. Blanca was able to make necessary coordination to make sure that all proceedings can still go smoothly. She was there with us from the very start of the ceremony until the end of the dinner banquet. Her professionalism and attention to details are unparallele.Without her, my dream wedding would not have come true.

The entire Marriott staff was wonderful! They honored the prices for beverages that we had signed the contract with, despite the fact that they increased by the time the wedding happened. Amanda and Blanca, the event manager and the wedding coordinator, were very attentive and made sure that all of our requests were taken care of. Blanca also managed to upgrade the wedding night room accommodations for me, my parents, and the groom's parents! All of the wait staff during the reception were very professional, too.

The Monterey Marriott is a charming hotel in the heart of downtown Monterey with easy access to area attractions. The hotel's helpful and professional staff worked with us well ahead of time to plan our rehearsal dinner and stay at the hotel. The hotel has a top floor room with commanding views of the bay on one side and the surrounding countryside on the other making it ideal to host our guests. We were also upgraded to a beautiful suite during our stay for the wedding compliments of the friendly event planners at the hotel - Amanda Mitchell and Blanca Erben. The menu was excellent with the hotel Chefs providing us with a delightful dinner. We had a great time staying at the hotel and throughly enjoyed our 4th of July wedding in truely American spirit. Both my husband and myself are thankful for the love and support shown to us by the staff at this hotel.

The Monterey Marriott, located in downtown Monterey, is a beautiful venue in a perfect location! Guests could enjoy the activities of downtown/wharf/ocean before the reception began which was important to me since guests had 2.5 hours down-time. Marriott personnel (Blanca and Amanda) were a SINCERE joy to work with. They were very responsive to my questions and easy/flexible to work with. Food was fantastic (we appreciate the chef's flexibility) and the honeymoon suite upgrade was UNBELIEVABLE (thank you, Blanca)! We also appreciated the free valet parking for the bride/groom and the champagne/strawberries in the honeymoon suite (thank you, Blanca).

The only reasons why I didn't give the Marriott 5 stars is because

1) Reception personnel were not informed to bring out bottles of wine for each table leaving the guests wondering if wine was to be served. It wasn't until just before dinner that the reception staff accommodated...a simple miscommunication.

2) Although bottles of wine were included in the reception dinner, we were not allowed to keep any remaining unopened bottles even though we had paid for them.

Overall, I HIGHLY recommend the Monterey Marriott as a reception venue. Our guests continue to rave about the reception/food and we are still flying high from the event!

I did a lot of research on various venues in the area (evaluating ~10 other venues) and given the location/price/service, felt the Marriott provided the best value for our budget.

Thank you, Monterey Marriott!!

We had multiple out of town guests and the Marriott was very accommodating. Service, planning and accommodations are all 5-star. Our planner, Blanca, was constantly in touch with me and made me feel at ease with everything. All I had to do was ask. She even came to my room to introduce herself after our numerous emails, I thought that was customer service- above and beyond. She even emailed me after to congratulate us. She really made our weekend wonderful.

The Marriott and it's staff, mainly Amanda and Michelle, were very professional and knowledgeable. They went above & beyond to make our wedding day special & memorable. I felt confident all the way through that things would go according to plan. The food and ambiance for the wedding along with the accommodations for our guests were the most important things to us and they were prefect. I can't stress enough how great the food was! (I still crave the mushroom bisque, butter lettuce salad with the oba basil vinaigrette and tomato dressing and parmesan crusted halibut.) They gave us access to the space before hand so our vendors had plenty of time to set up. I requested a certain chair in a certain color and they got it for me. Michelle even spent time decorating the dance floor, which I'm sure is well under her typical job duties. Any anniversary we are not flying away somewhere to celebrate, will be spent here. (We went to Europe this June to recreate our honeymoon.) We fully intend on having our 5 year &/or 10 year anniversary party at this Marriott.

Our guests were amazed at the service and we still receive compliments to this day on the food and how their wine glasses were never empty. It was a gorgeous and memorable evening thanks to all the help of the Marriott! Read less

THIS is the place!!! I did lots and lots of research on a different venus, esp with my budget and let me tell you i hit the jack pot with the Monterey Marriott. Im not the richest lady in the world,(nor is my hubby) my parents arent wealthy either so being on budget was really important to us, as well as location & service. Lindsay Bays is the sales rep for Monterey Marriott and she did everything in her power to work with my budget! she made my dreams come true! after i signed the contract, Tara Quashnick was assigned to be my event manager, and let me tell you she was soo pleasant :) and very very easy to work with.She would always answered my emails, never ever left me hanging. As a new bride i had many questions and changes and she was more then happy to help me. SO let me jus tell you that my Ceremony was at Berwick Park over looking the pacific ocean!! Monterey Marriott has ceremony packages and they do all the permit paper work from the city so i didnt have to worry about any of that. My ceremony was picture perfect!!! MY reception was at the Ferrantes Room at the MOnterey Marriott...it was on the 10th floor with nothing but windows all around the room! over looking the beautiful town of downtown Monterey, fishermans warf and the of course the ocean!!! ALL my guest were soo amazed on how beautiful this room was! NOw let me tell you about the food!! OMG the food is the BOMB! boneless short rib that just melt in your mouth! yum!!! and also a choice of a chicken plate which was also yummy! Our guest were amazed! EVEN before the main course we had some appitzers for cocktail hour and everyone was pleased! THE SHrimp with the truffel oil and Palenta was to DIE FOR!! my husband (awww my husband now ) doesnt like seafood but he ate up all his shrimp! they were soo fat! they looked like chubby legs :). ALL the staff at Monterey Marrioitt was sooo friendly and accomedating they took care of us and all our guest! whatever they needed they helped them! Everyone from the employees working the front desk, to the bellman, to the door men, to valet workers, to housekeeping...everyone was sooo friendly to all of us. MY guest were soo amazed! alot of my guest had traveled a long ways to attend my wedding and they had no hassels with anything. Tara had upgraded me to a suite and all i can say is WOW! i was able to have my bridesmaids join me in the morning for some champagne and snacks out by the patio just enjoying the day. P>S. if your looking for a Rehearsal dinner venue and dont have allot of money to spend, you should have it at Characters Sports Bar located in the Marriott on the same floor as the lobby. James was soo accomadating he even set up the WII station in the corner for the kids and it worked out great! while the adults were mingling, the kids were occupied. We had lots and lots of finger foods but there was soo much of it that we were able to even offer food to outof town guest and we STILL had food left over. They even had little bowls of chicken ceasar salad, some pasta for some of our guest who wanted more of a MEAL then just finger foods. THe atmosphere was truely amazing!! i will post some pics of my ceremony, reception & rehearsal dinner. I was never ever stressed or worried about anything!! MONTEREY MARRIOTT RULES!!!!! :) THEY MADE MY WEDDING A DREAM COME TRUE!!!!!

We had our wedding reception at the Ferrantes room in May of 2011.
It's an excellent place to have a reception.
Everyone loved the view and the food was amazing.
(Even the bride's French family loved it, and that's saying something :).)
They were really flexible in accommodating what we wanted, including special requests.
Tara, our wedding coordinator, did an excellent job and was very professional.
Everything was extremely well organized and went off without a hitch.
We would recommend the Marriott to anyone.

Do not think twice about having your reception at the Monterey Marriott! The venue we had booked pulled out 2 weeks before our wedding. We called the Marriott to check their availability (our wedding was scheduled for Thanksgiving Day) and they invited us in the same day we called and worked out all of the details for our reception. All of special cultural requests were taken care of without any issue. We were brought back in for a tasting within a few days (remember the wedding was only 2 weeks away) and the food was incredible. During our tasting the chef came out and treated us to a special meal that wasn’t on the wedding menu (boneless ribs...we went with it for the wedding). Michelle, Amanda and staff met our every need above our expectations. We dropped of the personal items for the reception the morning of and were completely blown away by the presentation of the reception room when we returned from our beach wedding in Carmel. We had to completely rely on the Marriot to put together a reception in less than 2 weeks and it turned out better than we had planned from the very beginning. The Marriott has a working relationship with the vendors in the area and do not force you to pick from a list if you want someone from out of Monterey. What was turning out to be a nightmare event became the perfect wedding day for my wife and I, thanks to the experienced staff at the Marriott.

After months of searching for the perfect ceremony and reception site in Monterey, CA we came upon the Monterey Marriott's Ferrante's ballroom at the top of the Marriott. They had a great package for ceremony set up at the Memory Gardens in historic Monterey where we were planning to have our ceremony in the first place. The services of the Marriott and especially their coordinator Tara Quashnick were all that my new husband and I could ask for. The room, food, and service were amazing! We had a blast partying with the beautiful view of the Monterey Bay. We highly recommend the Monterey Marriott for a wedding reception and ceremony set up at the Memory Gardens.
