Dream wedding, An Eventective User from Mountain View, CA

This place is absolutely beautiful. Situated on the 15th story of the Merchant Exchange building, the elevator opens to a room with a fireplace, bar and lounge type area. I attended an event here that had over 350+ people. The bar service was quick, helped get people moving and was well organized and decorated. The detail in the ceiling and the floors is amazing. The ballroom itself has a grandiose fireplace at the center and very high ceilings. Everything is so gorgeous! This would be an amazing venue for a wedding or special event. We had a full sit-down dinner and the servers were the best of the best. They were nice and prompt and very helpful. There was a dance floor set up in the room as well with all the tables surrounding it. The building, even down to the entrance and the elevators is just amazing.
