The JW Marriott will assist in designing and decorating the tented space to fit the group’s desire. Whether it is a posh lounge, swanky clubhouse, casual sports bar, Polynesian paradise, or traditional inaugural flair, guests of the “Build your own Ball” package will witness history from a private terrace above the crowds.
