The Crystal Marquis Banquet Room's deep burgundy draperies frame tall multi-paned windows, and light filtering in makes the oak parquet dance floor gleam. Original art deco wall sconces grace the walls, and on either side of the drapery valances are bronze deco bas reliefs. There's a small stage for a band or DJ at one end of the room, and a mahogany marble-topped bar at the other. Behind the bar, an arched mirror reflects light from the brilliant chandeliers. Ficus trees laced with twinkle lights provide both greenery and sparkle.
An arch is available for ceremonies, and several white lattice partitions can be moved anywhere to act as a backdrop for cake or gift table. If the bride or groom needs a private moment before the event, a sitting room off to one side of the ballroom is available. It's a cozy nook with a large working fireplace, a small restroom, and an art deco ceiling with chandelier similar to that of the ballroom. Nothy and her staff are completely committed to making each special event here a success. Given this level of dedication, it's no wonder the site is booked almost every weekend. "It's important that every client and guest be treated with the utmost respect," says Nothy, Crystal Marquis Coordinator/Owner. "Our role is to pay attention to the details, and make sure we deliver a high level of service."
