The lobby-level Crystal Ballroom, replete with gold leafing, Austrian crystal chandeliers and an ornate coffered ceiling, is opulent and refined. New, modern carpet inspired by an elegant European motif and new drapery at the cathedral windows complement the antique detailing and create a dramatic backdrop for weddings and special events. Brass-framed mirrors on the paneled walls brighten this grand ballroom.
The Mayfair Ballroom, and its prefunction area, features new technology, lighting and finishes throughout. Custom chandeliers, designed to mimic the historic fixtures of the lobby, are the highlight of this room. Over 150 crystal ceiling fixtures repurposed from the hotel’s original guest room corridors create dramatic shimmering light and bring sophistication and refinement to the 5,800-square-foot ballroom.
