Where better to tie the knot than the American Riviera? Here at Mar Monte Hotel, we maintain a stunning spread of event spaces overlooking the Santa Barbara beachfront, and reinforce these indoor and outdoor floorplans with the assistance of an attentive support team, world-class catering, and boutique Hyatt Unbound Collection accommodations and amenities.

Santa Barbara Wedding Venues at Mar Monte Hotel

Our event spaces here at Mar Monte Hotel cover more than 10,000 square feet all together, both indoors and out. Whether you’re intending a small, intimate nuptials ceremony for a grand affair, we can likely accommodate!

Those venues include the magnificent Pacific Ballroom with its dazzling views stretching from the Santa Ynez Mountains out to the ocean and the Channel Islands. Adjoining this ballroom is the Seaview space, which connects directly via a spiral staircase to our costa Kitchen & Bar restaurant. If so desired, the Pacific Ballroom and Seaview can be combined to offer our single largest event space, accounting for 4,325 square feet and accommodating as many as 320 guests.

Other Mar Monte Hotel wedding venues include our Fireside Room, the wraparound Terrace Ballroom, the Oceanfront Terrace, and the Ocean Lawn, not to mention the 3,500-square-foot Cabrillo Arts Pavilion Ballroom.

From the wedding ceremony itself to receptions, rehearsal dinners, farewell brunches, and any other associated festivities, Mar Monte Hotel’s elegant spaces fit the bill beautifully.
