Guests who book and hold their weddings between now and Tuesday, Dec. 31, with weddings occurring Sunday through Thursday, will receive the following complimentary amenities:

  • Event self-parking for all wedding guests.
  • Wine service with dinner featuring two bottles of house wine per table.
  • Chiavari chairs, including choice of gold and silver chairs, along with a choice of black or white pads.

Hotel Maya and Fuego, the Latin-infused, indoor-outdoor restaurant, provide spectacular views of the downtown skyline, Queen Mary and Pacific Ocean.

“Hotel Maya is the perfect wedding location at the beach, near the waterfall or beneath one of the world’s largest canopies,” said Kristi Allen, general manager at Hotel Maya. “Our staff of certified wedding coordinators and catering team will create an unforgettable experience.”
