After carefully narrowing down our choices and then visiting over 10 venues, my husband and I randomly decided to check out the Sheraton Carlsbad since we were in the area. It was love at first sight! We were sucked in by the classy yet tropical feel, beautiful ocean view, and well-kept buildings. Our wedding consisted of over 200 people, which many were coming from out of town so it was perfect for our guests to get the "so-cal experience."

The catering manager, Louise was very calm, encouraging and helpful from our very first meet to the actual day. She responded promptly to my numerous emails and I really appreciate how she even sent me pinterest ideas. On the day of, we never went hungry (I actually ate everything) and the staff were checking on us throughout the reception. The supervisor in charge (sorry, I can't remember his name) even came up to us a few times to make sure our night was going great. It wasn't until after the wedding that I learned that some of my family members had also requested extra tables and chairs last minute, which the staff were very accommodating to. Superb service!

The food at our taste testing appointment was really good, but the food at the reception was even better. Many of our guests came up to us afterward with pleasantly surprised remarks on how chicken could taste so good. My husband is a picky eater too, so when I saw that he was happy, I was happy.

The only thing that was missed where the lights in the reception. I had wanted the room to be a little dimmer as guests walked in, but I may have not communicated that clearly. Besides this one minor detail, everything was perfect. I mention this because I want this to be an honest review.

Overall, everyone was very professional, friendly and flexible (like even Jeffrey, the Audio Visual Manager). I love this venue and would come back here for future events. Thank you for helping to make this the best day of our lives!

After careful consideration of many venues, my husband and I had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Sheraton Carlsbad. From the initial contact with the hotel, to meeting the catering manager, Louise Lambert, to planning all the details, and exchanging 100's of emails, our overall experience was stellar. Not only was Louise helpful, supportive, and quick to respond, she also seemed very genuine which was an important quality for me throughout this exciting yet stressful process (as other brides may know:)).

We picked the Sheraton because of its sprawling open feeling, gorgeous views of the ocean, and tropical feel. The grounds are immaculately maintained and I was drawn to the outdoor space which is where we had our wedding, on the ocean blue lawn. Our wedding was intimate with about 40 people and the Sheraton was the perfect location for all our closet friends and family to celebrate. While the grounds do provide for an indoor reception I would highly recommend having it in Palm Court which is adjacent to the beautiful pool. It was simply magical with string lights woven between the palm trees and delicious food. The hotel even provided hedges for privacy for the event which I thought was a lovely touch.

It is for these aforementioned reasons I highly recommend the Sheraton Carlsbad as well as Louise and her staff for any bride looking for a stunning location to create many wonderful memories of a lifetime!

We decided to have our wedding ceremony and reception at the Sheraton Carlsbad mainly due to location, location, location! We had family and friends mainly coming from San Diego, Orange, and Los Angeles counties. It was the perfect middle point.

The onsite coordinator we worked with, Louise Lambert, was very helpful and responsive. She responded to all my questions and I was so happy to see her as my new husband and I entered the reception room.

What really stood out for us and our guests was the food! It was so good. One of my friends said she had been to many weddings, but never tasted food that was as good as what she had at our wedding. Kudos to the chef!

Everyone who worked at our reception was very courteous and professional. They made us feel really special.

As part of the wedding package, we got a corner King room. It was not quite as big as I would expect, but it had two patios and was convenient to get to the parking space.

The Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa is an amazing venue with gorgeous views of the ocean. The staff was extrememly helpful. I live out of the area, and they always accommodated my schedule when I was in town to work on our wedding. They provided excellent service, and some of our guests had allergies to certain foods we selected in our menu package, and the Sheraton servers made sure each of these guests had their meal specifications met. They made us feel extremely welcome upon our arrival for the wedding weekend, and I would definitely have another event there again!

This venue was exactly what I dreamed of as a little girl to be married at. It was beautiful! Aside from it's spectacular scenery, the service was amazing! Nicole Whittman is the best catering manager ever! She made everything possible without stressing out the wedding party. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding venue.

I could not have chosen a better venue for my wedding on October 2nd, 2010. My husband and I we so pleased with the wedding thanks to the wonderful service we received at the Sheraton in Carlsbad. They were very accommodating and helpful leading up to and the day of the wedding. I have only received positive feedback from all my guests regarding the ceremony site, reception food, and service. I would recommend this hotel to any future engaged couples as a perfect place to get married.

My experience at the Sheraton has been nothing but positive. It breaks my heart to not give them a perfect score because my wedding day and everything leading up to it was the best experience of my life, however the point of a review is to give other brides honest feedback and allow the Sheraton to correct their mistakes for the next bride. Nicole was absolutely incredible; always responded to me within a timely manner, was so accommodating, had an answer to everything, and her demeanor and attitude is infectious giving you joy and peace the day of your wedding.

Hiccups – My biggest disappointment was that we didn’t get the honeymoon suite as promised. Trivial, I know, but we spent so much money to wed there and the wedding day itself is so busy and full of excitement that after the reception it’s truly just you and your hubby time. Time to relax and be married. I had a lovely time with my husband in the beautiful room but it was just like any other hotel room. There were also a few little things that they didn’t deliver on; we were told there would be a plate of h’ourderves set at our table as we entered the ballroom since we didn’t get any during happy hour which didn’t happen. We were also told that since we most likely wouldn’t eat (which was accurate) that they’d deliver a plate of food to our “honeymoon” suite which again didn’t happen subsequently leaving our famished bodies to munch on protein bars that I brought because the kitchen/room service closed at 10:00. And other small things like no mirrors in room, coat racks for dresses, etc.

At the end of the day I decided to attribute all of that to human error – things will go wrong as they did at my wedding but that didn’t take away from all the good that the Sheraton did and how special the day was. I would recommend this venue to any bride looking for elegance, professionalism, and a stress free magical day.
