I don’t know what their prices are like, but if you’re open to the East Bay you might check out the Bellevue Club (http://www.bellevueclub.org/). We’re using them just for guest rooms for family since we live nearby, but they took me on a little tour of the banquet and ceremony areas, which were pretty and classic, and they’re redoing all of the flooring and upholstery this spring. I have no idea what their food is like, though, and you do have to use the in-house caterer. It’s on the shores of Lake Merritt near Grand Lake Theater and overlooks the lake. They have some info posted on their website, but also worth calling their events manager, who was super open to working alternate arrangements out.

Another option in that vein but less under the radar is the Berkeley City Club in Downtown Berkeley, which is basically the same deal—I’ve never been but I hear it’s really beautiful. Downside is that it’s pricier, I think. Both are 1920s era spaces. The Claremont Hotel in Oakland also does weddings, but based on the room prices I have to imagine they’re pretty pricey on all fronts….

@ms.snuggie – You might also look at Hotel Shattuck in Berkely, or some of the smaller, boutique hotels in the city.  Some of the Joie de Vivre properties or Kimpton properties might be less pricey.

I attended a wedding at the City Club of San Francisco. The venue is beautiful and so was the service. I dont know much about cost but you can contact and see if they fit your budget. Here’s the link: http://www.cityclubsf.com/index.html

Hope you found a place by now.  These places are under (around) $100 for dinner 3-course meal and they are nice/modern hotels that i personally approve.

Marriot San Mateo

Marriot San Francisco Airport

Westin SF Airport

Crown Plaza SFO (that’s definiately on the lower end price range and negotiable, but the ballroom doesn’t look “Grand” at all) It’s modern but like more suitable for fancy birthday party or anniversary party.

DO NOT GO TO HILTON by SF AIRPORT – their ballroom looks as bad as Clarion Hotel (low end hotel) and their bathroom looks like a high school stall.  The lady who was showing us around did not seem helpful either tho she is nice, she didn’t care to spend much time with us except “here it is” and we were done in 15min, where as other hotel managers took like an hour explaining their packages, what they can or cannot do for us, etc.

The other hotels are NICE, nice cartering manager to work with.
