Seating Capacity

The Best Western NewEnglander has two ballrooms, each able to break down into twp separate rooms.  The below seating chart shows the entire ballroom and both of the partitioned spaces.  The setup styles listed below - Classroom, Theatre and Banquet - are the most common setups.  The numbers represent the maximum capacity per that particular setup.  Theatre Style, or Lecture Style, are rows of chairs only.  Classroom style are three chairs with a classroom table (1.5 x 6) facing front.  The hotel can do two chairs per table upon request, but this would cut the capacity by half.  Functions can elect to do Herring Bone or Chevron Style, which is a type of classroom setup, but the rows of tables are instead at angles, and again would limit the capacity by roughly half.  Banquet Style, or Rounds, are round tables of 6 feet in diameter with 10 chairs around the table by default.  The hotel can do Half-Rounds, which is five chairs around a round table all facing forward, which is good for working lunches and/or a way to promote cooperation amongst the attendees at the table.  U-Shape Style, or Closed U-Shape, are not on this grid and capacity is half that of classroom.  Please check with the Catering Department for more details.  The final setup is Conference Style, or Boardroom Style, which has people sitting around one table.  The setup can be done in any room at a maximum of 30, except for the Boardroom.  The Boardroom can only be used in conference style.
