Downtown Newark’s Robert Treat Hotel has completed the renovations of its Crystal Ballroom. And befitting a place named the Crystal Ballroom? A three-tier chandelier with 30,000 hand-cut and polished crystals, of course! To top it all off, the chandelier is equipped with technology that enables the staff to change the chandelier’s color. For a recent political event, they used what else – red, white and blue.
There are also two dozen crystal wall sconces around the room. The 4,200-square-foot ballroom, accommodates up to 300 people banquet-style, more than 800 theater-style and more than 150 people classroom-style. There is also a removable dance floor.
Other improvements include new carpeting and new wall coverings, a bar with mahogany detail and marble top, and a drop-down A/V screen and surround sound system for live or piped-in music, speeches and presentations.
The Crystal Ballroom is tucked inside the historic Robert Treat Hotel. The century-old hotel is located across from Military Park in Newark’s central business district, across the street from NJ PAC and within walking distance of Newark Penn Station, the Broad Street light rail, and many cultural and entertainment venues. It became the first hotel in Newark to be listed on both the State and National Registers of Historic Places in 1980.
