We were so excited to have the famous Crown Room brunch but when we arrived found that Sunday the brunch had been moved to another (nice) room since a private company had booked the Crown Room. Ask before you book.More

I don't know if you can rent out the room - you'd have to call the hotel for that but it can easily hold a couple hundred people.

The brunch is $90.00 and they automatically add on an 18% gratuity. The cost is payable upon reservation, not when you actually go and eat the brunch.
