Marquam Room

The Marquam Room is a favorite of our clients with mid-sized groups for holding meetings or giving parties.  With windows on three sides, it is bright, well-lit and airy.  From seminars and banquets to weddings and Sunday church services, it adapts to a variety of uses.  Our clients have hosted workshops and lectures, trade show exhibits, dinner and dancing, and cocktail receptions. The adjoining lobby to the MLK Boulevard entrance provides a welcoming area for reception, registration or even a full dinner buffet.

The Marquam can seat 150-200 at banquet rounds, and hold up to 300 for a standing reception.  With a mounted projector and built-in audio system, our room is ready to go for most or all of your A/V needs.  Customizable lighting is available to dress up the room for festive events.  Our built-in dance floor is perfect for parties, but disappears under the carpet for other professional events.  Our portable stage comes with the space as well.  The Marquam Room has its own adjacent rest rooms, and an entrance to the Ambridge parking lot for easy loading. The Marquam Room is often used as a secondary space to the Ballroom, for exhibits, larger break-outs and meals.

Testimonials, General

It’s always my first choice. I like the availability of parking, and the staff is very accommodating and responsive to our needs.
The people who attend our career fairs at Ambridge comment that it’s a good-looking venue and a very convenient location. When I find a venue like Ambridge that I like, I stick with it!
I’ve seen my fair share of ballrooms and big meeting spaces, but this is the first time I remember actually being impressed with one. Highly recommended.
It’s more than just renting space, the staff at the Ambridge Center provides an old fashioned hospitality that says, “welcome to our home.”
The Ambridge facility is beautiful, and it’s quieter than a hotel where people are coming and going all the time.

Their customer service is fantastic, and the price point is awesome! Other venues nickel-and-dime you – not Ambridge.

The conference rooms are comfortable and I love that most of them have windows which let in natural light, a feature which is oftentimes missing in hotel conference centers.

I’m really pleased with the Ambridge staff.  They notice that we need things before we do!
I can’t say enough good things about Ambridge. Their staff are uniformly excellent — friendly and responsive to all of our requests. It’s close to mass transport, and their parking options are very popular with our clients.
They have large spaces for sales meetings and  food shows plus smaller breakout rooms, and this combination works very well for us.
