“The Cypress Ballroom is impressive in its design, functionality, technology and décor,” stated Director of Sales and Marketing, Tim Pyne. “The largest pillar-free resort ballroom in the nation is simply something you have to see to believe!”

Larger than a football field and with a volume of 1.8 billion golf balls, the new Cypress Ballroom can seat as many as 9,000 attendees in rounds of 10, or 13,000 theatre-style. Together with the Palms Ballroom, it provides 150,000 square feet of contiguous, pillar-free carpeted meeting space and more than 50,000 square feet of convenient pre-function space.
