Best decision you'll ever make!
If I could give this place 100 stars, I would!Sent on 08/17/2020
1) The venue space is INCREDIBLE. The best views of Raleigh with mix of city and nature out of the windows (which span 3 out of the 4 walls). The natural light, bar, and all of the amenities (includes tables, chairs, COUCHES, etc) really make it so simple for couples to focus on the other details of their day.
2) The staff, wow, where do I even get started... they really helped this #RonaCouple figure out the best options with what we had available. Sarah is AMAZING. She's responsive and a blast to work with.
3) As a budget-conscious bride, I felt like their pricing was super reasonable AND they have a recommended vendor list with vendors at different price points! You can also choose your own vendors not on the list as long as you get them approved!
4) LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION. It is within walking distance of great hotels and restaurants and parks, this place has got it all

Timeless Event Space
Very classic, upscale design. Loved all the windows that brought in the natural light. The bar area was very large. No heavy decor needed because it really is a classic space. The best part was working with the staff. Christie was the onsite venue manager and also the wedding coordinator at our wedding event. She went above and beyond to make sure the guest had a wonderful experience. We would highly recommend brides take a tour and look forward to coming back.Sent on 04/26/2019

The Cannon Room is such a gorgeous and accommodating space to work in. Between the downtown views, to the gorgeous decor and the original details, this space is perfect for any event! Working with the team at the Cannon Room is a dream. They are so flexible and ready to assist. We can't wait to be a part of another event there!
