The location of the Porto Vista Hotel can't be beat. San Diego's Little Italy district is the largest in the United States, at 48 square blocks. It's also just on the northern edge of Downtown San Diego/Centre City, so there's lots to see and do with Porto Vista as your base.
Porto Vista itself is an art lover's destination. Every room is decorated with original works of art. The hotel has ongoing exhibits curated by the neighboring 1805 Gallery, including installations and murals by local and international artists.
The hotel's curator-in-residence and artist-in-residence programs are groundbreaking. Their aim is to support artists and curators who are committed to getting involved in the local community in multiple ways: through public art, education, and so on.
For weddings and other gatherings, Porto Vista has multiple indoor and outdoor spaces. The Ripassi Rooftop and Terraza are two open-air venues that are available for special events. The Terraza is best for small gatherings, whereas the Ripassi Rooftop can hold up to 300 people, depending on the configuration. The GlassDoor Restaurant is an excellent choice for a special dinner or cocktail hour.
