The 30-story tower overlooking San Diego Bay has 1,190 guest rooms and more than 165,000 square feet of meeting space. It opened in late 2008.
Cvent ranked hotels by the number of meeting proposals, total room nights, market share and other criteria.
“Hotels are aggressively competing for group business, which can be a substantial part of their revenue mix and more profitable than leisure or transient business travel,” said Bharet Malhotra, senior vice president of sales for the Cvent Supplier Network. “This year’s list has a number of changes throughout the top 100, including 18 new properties that knocked some off of last year’s list. Hotels are constantly investing in upgrades to their meeting and room space as well as their capabilities for supporting meetings and events.”
The top 10 hotels on the list are:
- ARIA Resort & Casino, Las Vegas
- Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center, Nashville
- The Venetian and Palazzo Resort, Hotel & Casinos, Las Vegas
- Omni Nashville Hotel, Nashville
- Hyatt Regency Chicago, Chicago
- Hilton San Diego Bayfront, San Diego
- Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center, Grapevine, TX
- Hilton Anatole, Dallas
- Fontainebleau Miami Beach, Miami
- The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Autograph Collection, Las Vegas
Other San Diego hotels on the list are the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina at 18, the Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego at 19 and the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina at 79.
