Great Hall

Great Hall

The Great Hall of the Bancroft Hotel is a beautiful location to hold any special event.  An original feature of the building, the fully restored ballroom is now one of the most impressive special event venues in Berkeley.   Original woodwork, stained glass windows, and mosaic depicting the building’s architect provide not only provide a warm and intimate ambiance but the base on which to build an unforgettable get together.


The Great Hall seats a maximum of 180 guests for seated meal service.  We are able to accommodate up to 200 guests with theater style seating and up to 250 guests for a stand up reception.


The Great Hall is available for tours anytime there is not an event.  Please contact us to setup an appointment with one of our knowledgeable catering coordinators so that we may best be able to answer any questions that you may have.
