The Private Dining Rooms
A group in a parlor

On the Washington Blvd. side of the ballroom floor a series of small private dining rooms could be found. These rooms could be rented by themselves or be connected as larger units thanks to wide doors between them.

There was a banquet room of 42 by 30 feet and three permanent parlors of 27 by 14 feet. Just north of these was a well stocked Library which could also be rented for private functions. The group of meeting rooms was completed by a large parlor measuring 27 by 30 feet known as the Ivory Room. The Ivory Room connected to the ballroom and for larger functions doubled as a ladies retiring room.

All but the large banquet room and Library have survived. The banquet room (seen above) became part of the English Room in 1937. The remaining meeting rooms retained their original Italian design save modern wallpaper and fixtures.
