Marriott Marquis San Diego
San Diego, CA
BUDGET: $16.9 million
OWNER: Host Hotels & Resorts
With beautiful views from every room, it’s no wonder the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina is a favorite get-away destination for business and leisure travelers alike. Only a short distance from many of San Diego’s prime waterfront attractions, the Marriott Marquis has been a staple property within the marina for years and now, thanks to a contemporary refresh and expansion, it encapsulates the luxurious coastal ambience of its surroundings.
Over the course of 12 months, Continental completed a 1,366 guestrooms and suites renovation in addition to building out six new rooms in the property’s revamped north tower. Continental began work on the property in November 2021 and completed the total renovation in March 2023, spanning the construction over two phases between the hotel’s north and south towers. All guestrooms received new soft goods, case goods, and carpets, and bathrooms were updated with new vanities and stone tops, as well as new plumbing accessories and fixtures. Luxury vinyl tile was also installed in all of the refurbished hotel suites.
In addition to the complete guestroom renovation, Continental also worked on the M Club, an exclusive guest lounge and new addition to the hotel’s ground floor. Configured to allow as much natural light as possible into the soft, contemporary space, the M Club lounge required drywall partitions and HVAC installation, intricate millwork, FF&E, and new lighting.
