Part of Hilton's upscale Curio Collection of global properties, Carté Hotel will open its doors in San Diego's Little Italy next month, offering 16 floors with 246 rooms and three new, distinctive dining and beverage options, including a rooftop bar with expansive city views.

Located in close proximity to some of the city’s best restaurants, the Embarcadero waterfront and the downtown business district, Carté Hotel will house three new food and beverage options. The hotel’s full-service all-day restaurant Watercolors will offer sustainable, local seafood and serve a sea-to-table menu from Executive Chef Cesar Oceguera, a native San Diegan who has worked at Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill in New York and Gordan Ramsey’s Pub and Grill in Las Vegas. The full-service wine bar and specialty spirit tasting room Fonte di Vino will showcase a spirit-driven tour of the region, with a menu featuring local wineries and distilleries from Southern California and Mexico. Above Ash Social will serve as the hotel’s rooftop venue overlooking the city and bay, showcasing curated cocktails, numerous fire pits, a large LED TV wall ideal for outdoor movies and a daily sunset toast. Carté also offers over 8,500 square feet of event space, with seven on-site private event options.
