Grand Ballroom and Grand Balcony
Many people want to hold their events at the Grand Ballroom not only because of the food, ambience and quality service but because this is the only ballroom that has built-in lights and audio-visual technical equipment acquired from different parts of the world such as China, Italy, USA, Germany and Japan.

The Grand Ballroom was renovated in 2015. From its original size of 756 square meters that can accommodate 500 guests on a banquet set-up, it is now at 1,099 square meters and can accommodate up to 800 guests. The ballroom is also a flexible venue because it can be divided in three different ways.

“Marco Polo Cebu is also only the hotel in Cebu City that has a grand balcony and it can accommodate 2,000 people. During New Year, people come here to watch the fireworks happening around the city,” said Alcazar.
