At The American Hotel Banquet Room we aspire to offer the Virginia wedding of your dreams in a straightforward and elegant style that you desire. Our Virginia banquet hall is located in the heart of the historic downtown wharf area of Staunton Virginia, thirty minutes west of Charlottesville, and thirty minutes South of Harrisonburg, in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Offering an inviting atmosphere, our mid 19th century graceful design features dramatic chandelier lighting with exquisite hardwood floors, and rustic decor that was recently renovated. The Banquet Room hosts a year round uniquely beautiful site for rehearsal dinners, weddings, receptions, anniversaries, engagement parties, bridal showers, civic events, family reunions and business events.
We believe every wedding should be as unique as the happy couple with whom we celebrate. Bride and Groom may enter from our cobblestone grand entrance. The American Hotel Banquet Room provides numerous indoor and outdoor photographic sites including sites related to the historic Staunton Train Station.
