The Lotus room was wonderful for the chamber music concert I attended. It was set in the Japanese garden which is very lovely. The Lotus room would be great for weddings also.

Beautiful and amazing. Serene and quiet. The children’s botanical garden is worth the trip alone. My son absolutely loved it.
