The Wayne Room

In addition to the spacious ballroom a large banquet hall was provided. The Wayne Room was located directly above the main dining room. Its dimensions matched those of the dining room exactly.

The Italian styled Wayne had a two story vaulted ceiling which was supported by stone pilasters. A set of five tall windows overlooked Bagley Ave. Opposite these was a huge two story mirror which identified the room's entrance. Noted for its beauty, in time the Wayne would also become highly regarded for its excellent acoustics. In its technical and artistic accomplishments it was one of the finest such rooms in the Statler organization.

The Wayne remained largely intact for most of its life. Following the Second World War it received much of the same updating seen throughout the hotel. The greatest change came in the massive facelift the hotel received in the late 60's and early 70's. The vaulted ceiling was covered with a drop ceiling.
