If you attended The Teddy Ball 2015, the Hilton San Diego Resort & Spa was the ideal place to host our 2,000+ guests who sold out the hotel. In anticipation of having even more guests, we are adding a 3rd ballroom, new entry, more bars, and even bigger TEDDY WALL! More information can be be found on the VENUE page and be sure to book your rooms early before it sells out again!
