Beautiful location for a wedding. Our guests have been raving about amenities and ease of attending. Shuttle from airport, lovely rooms, deep sea fishing/whale watching across the street, bonfire facilities overlooking bay & much more created fun for all. Food & drinks at the firefly terrific. Brunch morning after in the Bayside Conference Room was just the right ending to wonderful week. Rachel Averella responded to our every need and made so many helpful suggestions. She is a true professional. The Dana provides perfection for a once-in-a-lifetime experience . . . or a getaway anytime.

Rachel from the hotels catering team was wonderful! She helped us with everything we needed. The hotel food was great and very helpful staff. When I was in need of a podium for my service they provided it, and when I felt it was ugly and requested it be covered with a table cloth they did that as well and made it look beautiful! If i could do it all over again I would!!

Rachel was great to work with and very responsive despite her busy schedule. The rest of the staff -front desk, housekeeping, management, drivers and event coordinators - were always pleasant and so eager to help and provide outstanding customer service. The accomodations were excellent and alowed for our large group to fully enjoy this wonderful weekend with no worries.

We got married this September in San Diego and The Dana on Mission Bay made our dream wedding a reality.
The ceremony site was simply breathtaking!!!
Rachel, the Sales & Catering Manager was great to work with. From the get-go she was extremely helpful. She responded to all our needs in a timely manner and was very flexible. On the day of the wedding she went ABOVE AND BEYOND what was required of her to ensure that we could enjoy the wedding without having to worry about the arrangements. She and her staff knew exactly what needed to be done with no prompting from us and everything ran smoothly and seamlessly from start to finish. Tim, the Banquet Manager was also super helpful! The food at the wedding was awesome! We had asked for a few changes to the menu and the chef Eric worked with us and had everything we had asked for.

Rachel and her staff did such a great job for our wedding on June 28, 2014. When she found out there was a wedding at a nearby park, she worked her magic to ensure that our wedding was priority. Out of all the locations that we scoped out in Mission Bay, I found this place had the most modern ballroom and the staff was very accommodating to our needs. There was no cake cutting fee and everyone enjoyed the venue and its location. The guests really enjoyed the filet mignon. We had 220 guests and it didn't feel crowded at all. Thank you so much Rachel for everything!

The Dana could not be more perfect for us. Right when you arrive, you feel like you are on a vacation and every muscle in your body relaxes. We searched high and low for ANY venue on the water all the way down the coast. There was no other place that had the elegance but laid back feeling that The Dana has and you cannot even find a place with this kind of price point. The options that they have available were so wonderful and it was a pleasure to work with Keith. COMPLETELY STRESS FREE. He responded to my emails sooo fast and answered everything with such detail and precision. The wedding day was perfect and all of our guests feel the same way about The Dana. Elegant and relaxing. Everyone had an incredible time,the drinks were great, the food was delicious, the staff was incredible, and everything went perfect. If you have not looked at The Dana, go look! You will not be disappointed!! To Keith and all of the Catering Staff, Thank you for allowing our dreams to become a reality.
