Ballrooms

The Grand Restored Ballrooms

The Hotel John Marshall opened in 1929 as the largest hotel in Virginia. 
Its rooms welcomed Elizabeth Taylor, Mary Tyler Moore, and Elvis Presley 
along with political figures such as Presidents Nixon, Ford, and Carter.  
After sitting vacant for over 20 years (save a few attempts to open) 
the building recently underwent a $80 Million renovation, 
spanning two years of construction to strip it back to the bones 
and restore it to its original 1920's grandeur.

The Marshall Ballroom

The Virginia Ballroom

The elegant Marshall Ballroom will wow your guests with 
nine vintage crystal chandeliers & three walls of grand, 
thirty-foot windows. The lead-paned glass encased in elaborate hand-crafted molding emulates that classic Richmond feel.
The stunning Virginia Ballroom features a wrap-around 
mezzanine balcony that leads into the main floor from 
a split staircase for your grand entrance. 
The room is illuminated by the three original 
Swarovski crystal chandeliers and your guests can dance 
the night away on our recently restored hardwood dance floor.
We also offer elegant dressing suites and a stunning lobby for your cocktail hour.
The John Marshall and Homemades by Suzanne, Inc. will manage all of your catering needs 
with setup, clean-up, & in-house tables, chairs, linens, & china.
