Built in 1886, The Crescent Hotel was (and is) a marvel of the state, featuring opulent rooms and unmatched service. The luxurious resort attracted visitors from far and wide to Eureka Springs, putting the resort town on the map. The building was designed with a unique blend of French Renaissance and Richardsonian Romanesque architecture, while utilizing the natural exposed stone that the Ozarks are famous for. Upon completion of the project, builders boasted that it would withstand the ravages of time for years to come. Over 130 years later, The Crescent continues to be a pillar of the community, and a premier wedding location for brides across Northwest Arkansas.
When it comes to wedding packages, the Crescent Hotel has a location to suit every couple, no matter their vision or guest list. Indoor and outdoor options are available, as well as multiple packages for brides planning a more intimate gathering.
For large, indoor gatherings, the Crescent Hotel’s Crystal Ballroom is the venue of choice. The hotel’s largest and most ornate venue will accommodate up to 300 guests, with room left over for a band, buffet, and round tables for your reception. Large, white windows let light into the room, complementing the dark wood paneling. Crystal chandeliers hang throughout the space, adding a touch of elegance. The wooden floors where guests will dance the night away go back 120 years to the hotel’s founding. The cost of renting the ballroom ranges from $1000-$1500, depending on your chosen date.
Large outdoor weddings will find their ideal location at the fountain garden. The 15 acres of colorful garden provide a stunning natural backdrop for your ceremony, complete with manicured hedges, gazebos lit with twinkle lights, and of course the historic fountain. In the background, The Crescent glistens majestically on the hill, harkening back to an earlier era. This location is ideal for a spring, summer, or fall ceremony, and will hold approximately 350 guests. The Crescent recommends renting a large canopy or tent, should Arkansas' unpredictable weather provide a brief shower during your service. Couples can expect to pay $250 when reserving this location as an addition to their reception rental.
