These room minimums vary depending on the time of day and day of the week. Please contact the banquet office for specific room minimums for your event. If the room minimum is not met, you will be required to pay the unmet amount as a room fee. The room minimum includes both food and beverage invoiced sales prior to service charge and tax.
