Hall of the Doges
The design of this venue was inspired by the Doge's Palace in Venice, built in the elaborate Venetian Gothic style. When it was completed in 1914, the Hall of The Doges was called the most opulent ballroom north of San Francisco.
During the 2002 restoration, the Hall of the Doges was lifted intact by crane to become the only "flying ballroom" in the world. When the new building was erected, the ballroom was carefully placed back into the new structure as the foyer to the Grand Pennington Ballroom.

- 2,976 square feet in size

Marie Antoinette Ballroom
Named for the iconic 17th-century queen, the French Neoclassical design of this intricately decorated ballroom is perfect for festive and romantic occasions. No expense was spared during its construction: its three original chandeliers were purchased for an unbelievable $10,000 each in 1914.
The perfect backdrop for weddings and galas, this grand ballroom features a beautiful inlaid quarter-sawn oak dance floor and elegant full balcony. The main floor of the ballroom can comfortably seat 300 dining guests. Classroom-style seating accommodates 150 guests, and 320 attendees can be seated theater-style.

Early Bird Room
The Early Bird Room got its name from the original Early Birds Club that use to meet in this very ballroom through 1968. And it sometimes takes the early bird to book it — the comfortable size and elegant layout of this space mean that it is frequently reserved for a variety of functions.
It is tucked away on the lower lobby level, right across from the serene environment of the Davenport Spa. The room has a built-in dance floor and is able to accommodate groups up to 140 people for dinner, 250 people for theater-style seating, and 120 people for classroom seating.
