The music begins... your partner takes your hand... you waltz onto the ballroom floor. All eyes are upon you as you swirl around the resplendent recreation of the Court Theatre in Versailles. And today, the stage belongs only to you.
Preferred by America's luminaries for their grandest events, the Grand Ballroom is New York City's only four-storey, two-tiered ballroom for weddings of truly regal proportion. Limitless possibilities unfold in this spectacular space, home to distinctive events such as Induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and The Opening Night Gala For Carnegie Hall.
One of America's most prestigious locales to see and be seen is the Park Avenue Lobby of the Waldorf Astoria hotel; yet it can be exclusively reserved for your wedding. Guests dine and dance in an atmosphere of rare appeal, surrounded by priceless Louis Rigal murals; glide gracefully across the famed Wheel of Life mosaic, following the paths of presidents and kings.
Brilliantly festooned with seasonal decorations, the Park Avenue venue is a particularly dazzling choice for holiday weddings. Available as an ensemble with the Park Avenue Lobby are the Empire and Hilton Rooms, fashionably adorned with gold leaf cornices, nickel silver railings, and soaring, two-storey ceilings.
With a legacy that spans generations, beginning with its reign as America's most notable supper club, the Starlight Roof is an unparalleled beacon of prestige and style. Dramatic, floor-to-ceiling windows present sweeping views of New York City and Park Avenue, eighteen storeys below. Magnificent Art Deco grillwork gilds the ceiling, reflecting concealed lighting upon a scene of gracious brilliance.
This extravagantly configured space offers 20-foot ceiling heights, and accommodates up to 300 guests. It can be accessed directly via elevators from Park Avenue & Waldorf Towers, guestrooms and suites, enabling you and your guests to enjoy a majestic experience that is private to your party.
With their elegantly attired yet discreet spaces, the urbane Conrad Suite, and richly romantic Louis XIV Suite, bestow an ambience of noble intimacy. Weddings of up to 100 can unfold gracefully, as guests move from one scene to the next, from the receiving line to the wedding banquet to the joyous reception.
The effect is of an indulgent, private event staged in the seclusion of a grand manor home. The formality of a black and white marble foyer precedes the rich tones of the grand two-story Conrad Salon. An oversized marble fireplace mantel, etched mirrored paneling and extraordinary four-tiered chandeliers create appropriate adornments. Dressed in French blue, swathed in gold and silver leaf and crowned with an art deco tray ceiling and sparkling crystal chandeliers, this court designed suite carries regal touches that enhance its pure opulence.
