Congressional Room

This function room is ideal for large meetings or celebrations in any type of setting. The Congressional Room has two large glass door twin sets and a full size kitchen in an attached but separate room. The meeting space 2,000 square feet and can be set up in a variety of layouts. We can set this room for theater style seating for up to 175 participants or we can put it in a classroom style for up to 100 people behind tables. When a party or reception is held in this room we can seat 120 people comfortably at 15 round banquet tables and still have enough space for the dance floor and a food service area.

We also have a video tour of this meeting room on our YouTube Channel at www.youtube.com/hampshireinn labeled Congressional Room Tour.  Our YouTube channel is designed to give an additional perspective on our entire hotel.  This room has been popular for reunions, bridal showers, company gatherings and wedding receptions. We can assist you in finding a DJ for party or you can supply your own.  In addition Guest Reviews #4 and #5 are specifically about the Congressional Room function room.

Our kitchen in the back of the Congressional Room contains an oven, a four burner stove top, a microwave oven, a sink and a large refrigerator as well as significant countertop space. Right next to the kitchen is another door for easy access for any caterers or party support personnel. Remember, we do not have an exclusive contract with a caterer so if you would like to bring in your own food or caterer we can help keep your costs for the meeting as low as possible. If you are not familiar with the local caterers we would be glad to help you find some of the best food in the area. We can also provide a mobile bar set up to help distribute beverages.

This room is our largest room and is located on the ground floor conveniently next to the parking area and side door. Please give us a call at (800) 932-8520 with any questions about our vast services or the function rooms available here at the Hampshire Inn and Conference Center.
