Crowne Plaza Redondo Beach
I held both my ceremony and wedding reception at the Crowne Plaza in Redondo Beach. Our ceremony was on the Terrace which overlooks the water. It was a wonderful spot to experience the outdoors, although a bit noisy and a bit windy. It's a little on the expensive side to rent but I'm sure that it's a popular spot.
Our reception was in the Mezzanine room which was the perfect fit for our 65 guests. I wouldn't have many more than that there if you are having a dance floor.
The food was good, but not amazing. I had some comments that the some of the steaks were overcooked but some were just fine. My guests really loved the ice cream sandwich bar which was an awesome summer treat.
The hotel staff treated us all very well and everyone was professional. We did have issues with family members not able to check into their rooms a little bit early which was stressful, but when I talked to the front desk they took care of it.
Sheree DeWeese is amazing! She is very responsive, flexible and really goes to bat for her events. She took great care of us and I'm so happy we got to work with her.
Overall, I'm really pleased with how my event turned out and my criticisms are really minor compared to everything that went well.
If I could work with just Sheree Deweese this would be a 5.5/5.0. The moment we started planning she was flexible and accommodating with all our requests.
On the day of the event, we had the ceremony on the Terrace. Extremely windy and loud which made it difficult for the candle part of the ceremony. Also, the mics kept cutting in and out throughout the ceremony which was annoying. Sheree was very flexible with the timeline.
Then during the reception, Sheree left and it was the banquet manager who stepped in. Once Sheree left, everything seemed to go downhill pertaining to the hotel staff. Our wait staff seemed to disappear, and our wonderful DJ took it upon himself to dim lights and find wait staff to cut the cake. We even had to look for the cart that had the small plates and something to cut the cake with prior to the cake cutting. The food we ordered was delicious during the tasting, but something happens when you cook in bulk.
Overall place is lovely, price was within our price range with their special deal, but peeved about the reception mishaps.
We loved having both our ceremony and reception here at Crowne Plaza Redondo Beach. The wedding coordinator Sheree helped us immensely and was available, flexible and personable. The entire staff at Crowne Plaza provided us with top-notch customer service and made us and our guests felt welcome from the very beginning. We had our wedding reception in the seascape ballroom and it was beautiful.
Quite honestly working with Sheree DeWeese and her staff at the Crowne Plaza was perfect. She almost made it stress free! She and her staff were honest, helpful, professional, and flawless! We had a great experience, and I would do it again! We had over 375 people attend our Wedding Reception with an invited list of 425. Sheree helped us work through all the details. It was a fantastic wedding! Thank you Crowne Plaza and Sheree!
Everyone on the event staff was responsive to any questions or requests we had. It was great to work with them. The restaurant wasn't responsive at all and as a result we went elsewhere for our rehearsal dinner, that was really the only negative aspect of the experience. The wedding day went really smoothly and we got a couple compliments on the food. A family member liked the hotel so much that they booked their wedding night there later in the year. My package included the cake, champagne and room so it's an added value to the price per plate that we paid. If you're looking for a beachside location you should definitely consider this place :)
When my new hubby and I found this place, we fell in love with it. It has a beautiful view of the ocean for the ceremony. It is located on the pool deck. Then our guests were guided to the cocktail area before going in the magnificent ballroom.
I was a little stress on the big day I have to admit, but everything went really well. One of the vendors hired by the hotel brought the wrong color for the organza sache to be placed on the chairs. Luckily, our personal consultant took care of it, and we obtained the correct color for the sache right on time.
Otherwise, the food at the SPLASH restaurant is delicious. Our guests loved the salmon and vegetarian entree. It was just awesome, and we got so many compliments. I would highly recommend the food for any kind of big event.
Thank you for letting us do our wedding at the hotel,
we wanted a reception site by the beach and this was one of the more affordable, but still very nice venues. the food was excellent. we had the seascape ballroom which has an outdoor patio. the guests really enjoyed this.
The wedding coordinator was terrific. We didnt have to worry too much. =D
We have enjoyed working with our seaside neighbors at the Crowne Plaza Redondo Beach for many years and have always had a great experience. Their professionalism, hospitality and attention to detail along with a teamwork approach have resulted in truly successful events.
We love working weddings at the Crowne Plaza Redondo Beach. Not only is the view beautiful, the dance floor is great as well. Guests will have an amazing time dancing the night away whether it is in the Seascape Ballroom or the Coral Ballroom. This is a fun yet gorgeous location and we look forward to our next event here.

Sheree Deweese at CP Redondo Beach is awesome! She's super easy to work with, organized, and open to all suggestions. I love it when venues keep an open mind to what the bride wants and not what they are used to doing. Sheree has always been efficient in getting back to me, which is super important in this business. I'd recommend this location to any bride! The serving staff was also great to work with.
