I was invited to one of the most exclusive party’s! Last weekend marked the grand opening of The Pendry Hotel, located in the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego. As I sauntered through the boutique style entrance I immediately got the vibe of class, excellence, and fun! The interior design is a perfect mix of young and old glam. But before I continued on my way to the lounge area, I stopped by the succulent flower wall — a blogger’s dream backdrop!
As I entered the lounge, my friends and I were greeted with champagne, h’orderves, live entertainment, and beautiful women floating in the air on chiffon ropes. The Pendry also offered a signature margarita that was to die for! My girls and I walked the first level and took in all the beautiful decor spanning the space, from the receiving area to the chaises and fireplace.
We made our way to the second floor to check out the ballrooms and event spaces. All I have to say is, “Can someone please put a ring on it, so I can book this hotel as my venue?! Sheesh!” Lol! The party didn’t end there. The grand opening festivities included a photo booth, a doughnut wall (yeah, that’s right, a wall covered in sweet, center-holed pastries from The Doughnut Bar San Diego). Normally I wouldn’t indulge but these doughnuts were totally worth the extra mile I had to run the next day!
Next we hit the third level to see The Pendry’s suites and pool area. The rooms blew my mind! They were all so intimate and featured glass showers in the middle of the room! Talk about a great date night! These rooms also overlooked the pool, which was nothing short of amazing, including the city views.
Finally, we headed to the basement to party at the Oxford, the hotels nightclub. My first impression was how breathtaking the utilization of the space was! I instantly felt like I was transported from sunny San Diego to a secret, speakeasy in NYC. The club is decked out in velvet, tufted couches, beautiful oriental rugs, a 15-foot chandelier, and excellence dripping from the walls! I had a BLAST with great music and GREAT VIP hosting and service! This is hands down my favorite nightclub in San Diego (trust me I’ve been around the Gaslamp a time or two, lol).
Whether to check out the wonderful lounge areas, watch a game at the bar, or enjoy some rest and relaxation with family and friends, The Pendry Hotel in downtown San Diego is it! It’s the perfect mix of boutique, fun, old glam, and sophistication.
