Murder Mystery Dinner Show Comes Alive in San Diego

Dinner Served With a Twist, Along With Discounted Accommodations, at Courtyard San Diego Downtown Hotel

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 31, 2011) - Guests never know whom to expect. But at this thrilling, murder mystery show, they'll know what to expect -- a great meal and fantastic evening. The Dinner Detective®, America's largest murder mystery comedy dinner show, puts on an action-packed performance where everyone is considered a suspect. The interactive show makes an appearance at the Courtyard San Diego Downtown Hotel, a 1920s landmark and one of the area's historic hotels in San Diego.

While enjoying a four-course meal, guests help to solve this hilarious who-dunnit that's been voted Best Dinner Show in various locations for four consecutive years. Guests will be treated to hors d'oeuvres, salad, and an entrée of their choice that includes chicken, fish, or vegetarian. A dessert completes the indulgence and helps keep minds sharp for an evening of sleuthing. The Dinner Detective is held at the Courtyard San Diego Downtown Hotel a few times a month, and includes shows around Thanksgiving and during the winter holidays. Guests can read more about the show and view the schedule for the remainder of the year.

When not busy crime-solving during dinner, guests can also enjoy the superb location of our downtown San Diego hotel near the trolley. We're just a block away from the Gaslamp District, an enjoyable stroll to San Diego's waterfront, and a short ride to some of the best beaches in California. A landmark of hospitality with modern amenities, the hotel features spectacular 32-foot ceilings in the historic lobby, spacious guest rooms, a well equipped fitness center, and event facilities.

For a limited time, a discounted room rate is available to guests by entering the Promotional Code I9z in the Check Rates & Availability area of the Marriott website. Or, guests can search under hotel packages in San Diego.
