Waterford chandeliers, cherrywood paneling, opulent sofas and armchairs make the scene complete. After The Townsend Hotel’s 2000 multimillion dollar expansion, creating over 9,000 square feet of meeting and catering space avaialable, additional Ballroom space suitable for events to 500 people, elegant marble conference boardrooms and a popular nightspot – The Corner - were added to an already impressive array of meeting and restaurant facilities.
