Event services

Audiovisual equipment
Your event will go off without a hitch thanks to the state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment in our modern meeting rooms. If you’re planning a celebration, free high-speed wireless internet and our integrated sound system keep the dance music flowing. Planning multiple conference breakout sessions? You can take advantage of LCD projectors and 12x12-foot ceiling-mounted screens in each meeting space. Our rooms also feature videoconferencing capabilities to include your remote attendees.

Parking
Located across from the hotel, the Jefferson Street Ramp offers plenty of parking spaces for your guests. The ramp is connected to the hotel by a skyway to ensure ease of access.

Dining
Whether you’re planning a working lunch with colleagues or an intimate dinner for the bride and groom’s families, you can reserve a private dining room at Benvenuto’s City Grill, which is adjacent to the hotel in the same building. This contemporary restaurant offers an elegant setting, a well-curated wine list, and a crowd-pleasing menu of American and Italian favorites.

Meeting rooms
Spanning 8,000 square feet, our meeting rooms offer the flexible options you need to host events both small and large. Run videoconferences or small team strategy sessions in our two boardrooms, or choose from several pre-function areas for receptions and exhibits. Organizing a large event? Our Grand Ballroom combines the Lincoln, Washington, and Grant rooms, and our Ultimate Grand Ballroom adds to those rooms the Jefferson Room.
