Vernon, NJ: May 7, 2024 – Crystal Springs Resort, the premier four-season resort in the Northeast, offers the expansive Canyon Ballroom at Minerals Hotel in Vernon, New Jersey. Opened in the fall of 2023, the 15,000 sq ft venue (which includes the dining room, kitchen and back of house) services up to 500 guests for a single seating and serves as an elegant multi-purpose venue – ideal for corporate groups, expos, trade shows and weddings.

For this project, a collaboration with the globally acclaimed Manhattan-based firm INC Architecture & Design was undertaken.

This renowned and sought after studio has partnered on various high-profile hospitality ventures including Crystal Springs Resort’s Wine Spectator Grand Award-winning Restaurant Latour and the Biophilic-inspired guest rooms at the AAA 4-diamond Grand Cascades Lodge.

The room’s design features a color palette of grays and creams plus wood paneling. Two stunning bars made from dramatic vendome stone with mirrored walls of glass shelving complement the stylish decor.  Overall, the room’s organic and serene color palette suggests the influence of a modern space morphing with nature.  Upon entering the Canyon Ballroom, guests feel surrounded by the influence of a forest, feeling enveloped by serene woods.  The tranquil carpet design represents the trees, with their slim trunks stretching as far as the eye can see. The open midnight ceiling and twinkle of the lights are reminiscent of stars at dusk.

Given the Resort’s extensive experience in hosting thousands of events, the decision to construct an extraordinary venue of this stature was executed in a deliberate and thoughtful manner. “Crystal Springs Resort’s expertise with group gatherings and weddings lead us to develop a ballroom with both a visually stunning design and a high-tech kitchen,” stated Chris Mulvihill, Chief Marketing Officer of the Resort.  He continued, “The Canyon Ballroom offers an unparalleled experience for our guests, and we look forward to welcoming clientele who expect nothing less than an exceptional and memorable experience.”
