Venue Love: The Atrium Room

The venues of the Basin Park Hotel serve as gathering places, and historical preservation displays; the Atrium Room in particular. It is located on the first floor of the 1905 Basin Park Hotel in downtown Eureka Springs. The site is many times used for wedding ceremonies as pictured here, but it is also a lovely room for a small reception of 40 or fewer, or a small meeting.

Reflections Photography

The Skylight Ceiling remains a wonderful feature and provides one of the most interesting views in town, as you can see up the interior sides of the hotel, as well as the mountain side the building is built up against. This feature especially makes the room a desired location for a wedding ceremony. The Skylight Package is perhaps the best way to take advantage of the room for a wedding, and includes the Ozark Room for the reception.  

The history of the Atrium Room is also interesting, and makes us love the room even more.  

In 1995, the Atrium Room was constructed out of the rooftop and existing walls of the hotel. Then in 2005, the general manager had the display cases constructed out of existing windows for the hotel’s centennial celebration to display a variety of history that had touched the hotel during its 100 years. Seven history display cases line the walls of the room and contain memorabilia from various periods of the hotel’s existence. The following are photos of these display cases and the various artifacts they contain.

Although we love the history on display, you are welcome to cover the cases for your wedding celebration if you wish. Small tension rods fit perfectly within the frames, and any sort of curtained fabric will hang beautifully. Call today to talk to a Basin Park Hotel sales manager about the details of your special day!

Leave time to enjoy your Special Day

After months of planning, family traveling in from across the country and all the highs and lows of getting to the big day make sure you leave time to enjoy what is truly important.  Time with your loved ones.
While there may be many places to simply rent for a two hour “unique” wedding ceremony, there are few places that offer iconic backdrops for the ceremony paired with a two-day celebration for family and friends to honor the new couple while making joyous lifetime memories together.
 
At the 1905 Basin Park Hotel and the 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa in Eureka Springs, we “uniquely” pair together our decades of experience serving as wedding professionals and a passionate desire for creativity while welcoming new challenges.   
 
It is inspirational to see families reconnect at a Friday night gathering; college friends together once again playing in Eureka Springs’ Historic Downtown Entertainment District; the joyous anticipation and perfect preparation “for the ladies” in the New Moon Spa Salon and Bridal Studio; golfing “for the boys” at our nearby partner course; the audible hush of delight when you as a bride appear to your family and friends as you start down the aisle decorated with smiles on both sides to match your own; the beautiful ceremony; that memorable kiss; finished with a lavish reception for the ages; and perhaps followed by a farewell breakfast for all the next morning… all  delivered with ease and excellence. 
 
It is you that make your wedding unique; we are simply honored to be a part of the celebration, helping to craft memories that will truly last for a lifetime.
 
Try as some do, lifetime memories are not made in two hours… but they are indelibly created during a Two-Day Celebration.  Allow us to help as you start planning yours TODAY!
