Stars at Night Ballroom
The new 54,000 square foot Stars at Night Ballroom draws design inspiration from the beautiful Texas night sky as the sun sets gently over the horizon and the stars begin to give their first light in the evening. The feature design elements of the room are custom tailored to this stunning space, beginning with the walls, a series of wooden slats encircle the room and hover in front of the walls washed with soft light. The ceiling is comprised of an undulating custom metal grillwork whose pattern is a modern interpretation of the classic quatrefoil symbol of the City of San Antonio. The undulating ceiling is accented by 1,642 programmable LED lights that provide a sparkling ambience to this stunning ballroom. The ballroom is surrounded on two sides by ample pre-function space allowing for flexibility in pre and post event receptions. Another dramatic feature of the new ballroom is the 5,100 square foot balcony adjacent to the main pre-function space. The ballroom balcony is cantilevered over two lanes of traffic in Market Street, providing a dramatic view into the heart of downtown San Antonio.
The Stars at Night Ballroom is also a highly flexible space capable of dividing into 3 distinct spaces, each with its own front of house and back of house access. The ballroom is immediately adjacent to the newly expanded main kitchen providing direct food service unparalleled in the industry.
Hemisfair Ballroom is divisible into three sections. It is 39,576 sq ft and the adjoining pre-function area perfect for registration or a small reception is 9,203 sq ft. The ballroom was named after Hemisfair Park built for San Antonio’s World Fair in 1968. It is carpeted with our signature “Rose Window” carpet design.
