The Terrace Room

Weddings & Celebrations

Oakland’s Most Enchanting Wedding & Celebration Venue

Our panoramic view encompasses the blue-green of Lake Merritt and the lush Oakland hills. A special treat for evening events is the Necklace of Lights, which is a chain of lights on ornate Victorian light poles that surround the entire lake. View beautiful weddings celebrated at The Terrace Room at The Lake Merritt Hotel.

“We had the most amazing time at our wedding at the Terrace Room. To top it off, our guests had a great time too, the compliments continue to flow. The venue is just gorgeous and the views are definitely impressive. What we liked most is that there are a variety of areas for people to hang out in, yet still be connected to the main room. Elizabeth and Matt helped us with all the logistics and were always professional. You have no worries when it comes to working with these guys, at this venue. They have everything worked out when it comes to putting on a beautiful and smooth event.” – Danielle W. via
