The Dana on Mission Bay: 2022 Year in Review

It’s been an amazing year at The Dana on Mission Bay. We were honored to be the hotel of choice for so many travelers! Our team had a thoroughly wonderful time welcoming San Diego visitors from all over the world to experience the unique vibe of Southern California. In fact, we had so many fantastic guests, magical memories, and on-site offerings that we’ve put together a 2022 year-in-review retrospective. 

Here’s a look back at some of our favorite memories from the previous 12 months.  


Wonderful Weddings

The Dana was honored to be the site of a number of truly breathtaking weddings in 2022. Cheers to all of the happy couples who were kind enough to allow us to help them begin their forever together.  


Sunshine and Staycations

San Diego has always been a vacation destination, but locals also love to staycation here in their own backyard. One of our city’s most popular sayings is, “We live where others vacation”. Take a look at one of our locals sharing their Dana stay!

As San Diego’s most pet-friendly hotel, The Dana welcomed some wonderful guests of the four-legged variety in 2022. Looking to bring your furry family member along on your next vacation? Our popular “Dana For Dogs” package includes a host of amenities — like tasty treats, a custom water dish and special privacy sign — designed to make their stay special.

Local families love October in San Diego, since it’s kids free month all over town! Countless museums, attractions and activities give young guests a pass to enjoy the best the city has to offer, and The Dana is happy to be a part of it every year by offering our “Kids Eat Free” specials at Firefly Eatery & Bar.
