productive, rewarding meetings >

Tired of meeting in subterranean conference rooms? Isn't it boring to get stuck in one plain vanilla room for the whole day? Do you prefer sitting on sofas instead of hard, straight-back chairs? You have this option - plus boardroom, classroom and theater seating - at the mansion and o museum.

The mansion is one of the most unique and creative environments in the world. Our expansive footprint includes 12 conference rooms, large meeting galleries, and a host of unique spaces ideal for generating new ideas, motivating teams and getting things done, from 2-300.

Our one-of-a-kind environment with creative spaces (and traditional ones too) draws people out of their day-to-day surroundings, and challenges them to solve problems by thinking out of the box.

start to finish the experience at the mansion was incredible. they were so knowledgeable and gave us incredible ways to think about hosting our retreat. my enrite team and even the president of our organization had phenomenal things to say about their experience.

— Vanessa Stair from United Nations Foundation

                            Today's event was spectacular! To bring such a diverse group to your space was so much fun for me. Some reminded me of country bumpkins who had never been to the big city before! Everyone was in awe and they were so impressed with the venue, the food, the desserts (oh my!) and the fun Ted provided with the history of the house and his insights into H's designs. We had an incredible time and will be back - as a group and individually for sure.

                            Thank you and your wife again for the friendly hospitality and helping me and my family in this time of transition in our lives. We truly enjoyed our stay at the Mansion and all it had to offer! We will definitely come back and visit the Mansion many times whether for brunch or a show!

                            The Mansion truly is a way of life. We share this world, it's all about letting go. Taking risks. Opening your heart.

                            It's where CEOs inspire their employees. It's where business associates and friends meet for drinks and sweets. It's where artists and authors find their Muse. It's where families gather for Sunday brunch. And it's where the music plays on, beyond forever.

                            At The Mansion we believe if we are true to your vision, committed to your path and willing to share, we all can achieve things beyond what we know.

                            We encourage being yourself, support creativity and embrace passion of expression.

                            Of course you will want to check with your host if you are coming for a private event. So, whether it is flowers in your hair, business attire, a feather boa or your favorite sports teams colors, feel free to wear them here... all we ask is that you don't come nude!

                            Did you know?

                            Today's event was spectacular! To bring such a diverse group to your space was so much fun for me. Some reminded me of country bumpkins who had never been to the big city before! Everyone was in awe and they were so impressed with the venue, the food, the desserts (oh my!) and the fun Ted provided with the history of the house and his insights into H's designs. We had an incredible time and will be back - as a group and individually for sure.

                            A fantastic setting for our team-building retreat. The Mansion staff delivered on every aspect of what we were promised. It was also a fun experience for my staff, who enjoyed settling into deep comfortable furniture for our group discussions - and then wandering around in awe of the place during their breaks.
