Presidential Ballroom

The Presidential Ballroom opened in 1910 as the open-air Palm Court, a central roof garden terrace landscaped by Kate O. Sessions. In 2006, it was newly unveiled as the Presidential Ballroom, paying homage to the 14 US Presidents who have stayed at the hotel.

Celestial Ballroom

Distinguished as the heart and soul of the hotel, the 6,000-square-foot Celestial Ballroom embodies the iconic hotel. The sophisticated ribs of the vaulted ceiling are hand painted and lacquered in subtle shades of metallic blue and supported by grand columns intricately restored to reveal the detailed woodwork of the room's 1930s heyday.

Palm Court

The 3,000-square-foot Palm Court's four grand columns draw attention to the 14-foot-high cove ceilings which host nine chandeliers and are flanked by a wall of west-facing windows, honoring the legendary vision of the hotel's circa 1920 terrace. This magnificent room originally opened to the public as the Grant Hotel Dining Room.

Crystal Ballroom

Unveiled in 1927 as the Italianate Ballroom, the Crystal Ballroom's private socialite salon was built to complement the hotel's original Grand Ballroom. Today restored to its original splendor, the venue boasts a travertine floor, embellished European plasterwork, and a hand-painted ceiling.
