Venues and spaces


We have venues that can expand your dreams. With Historic Downtown Lancaster as the backdrop, the majestic Imperial Ballrooms and the spectacular outdoor Imperial Terrace offers you the opportunity to dream in Technicolor taking in the Lancaster City Skyline. Think marble dance floors, inspiring decor, large and private bridal suites, and an outdoor Terrace that can accommodate medium or large size functions with an open-air covered dining area. All in the heart of Lancaster. Our niche is providing unique and desirable spaces while maintaining a feeling of playful intimacy for your wedding, special event, conference or meeting.

Imperial Grande Ballroom

“Elegance” best describes the look of the Imperial Grand Ballroom.  Flexibility and functionality best describe how it can work for your conference needs.  In the Imperial Grande, up to 275 of your attendees can enjoy the conference in upgraded King Louis chairs for sit-down dining.  If you have a lecture or theater-style meeting, 360 attendees will all have a clear view of the speaker and also be able to enjoy any technology you need to get your message across.  A built-in bar, ample pre-function space, and meeting rooms are all steps away from the seating area. The Imperial Grande has the flexibility to support a formal presentation or offer a casual setting to learn or relax. View Spaces and Specifications

Imperial Blue Ballroom

An electric ambiance greets your attendees as they step into the Imperial Blue. This gathering space reflects a polished, timeless style that’s ideal for any gathering. Built-in natural light from the wall of windows facing Ewell Plaza and Downtown Lancaster allow rays of sunlight illuminate the Imperial Blue. Its’ relationship to both the Atrium and the Imperial Terrace makes this assembly space unmatched in flexibility to meet your conference needs. View Spaces and Specifications

Imperial Terrace

Prepare to be “wowed”! The spacious Imperial Terrace is really too cool for words, and yes… on the Terrace you can have your cake and eat it, too.  A green roof covers over half of the open-air space, and can accommodate table seating for up to 160 guests. The Imperial Terrace works, rain or shine! The uncovered area next to Ewell Plaza captures dazzling sunshine by day, and provides an ideal viewing area to watch the stars and moon illuminate the night sky. The Imperial Terrace is the ultimate setting for both networking and leisure. Embrace the city vibes with Binns Park in the background. Frame your experience and ensure your event is a success.

When you first step on the escalator and get whisked up to the open space, a sense of awe takes over as you experience the open, skylight-covered Atrium at the Imperial Ballrooms. This 35-foot-high skylight space is also graced with a stunning ornate chandelier by Italian designer, Massimo Scolari. The Atrium space flows directly to the Imperial Blue Ballroom and the Imperial Terrace. It is also connected to the Imperial Grande Ballroom by a grand staircase with a glass railing, or it can be accessed via the elevators.  When used for your pre-reception, this glorious space becomes an ideal setting for love-filled moments, and a wonderful location for making memories with your friends and family.
