John Marshall Ballrooms
A historic venue in the John Marshall Hotel, this venue is right downtown as the building stands out on the skyline when approaching from I-95. After laying dormant for 20+ years the venue reopened to its original grandeur. The Marshall Ballroom has nine chandeliers and 30 foot high windows. The adjacent Virginia Ballroom has a huge wooden dance floor surrounded by a balcony, and has a grand staircase for the entrance. They can handle up to 150 guests but no prices are listed.
