Palmer Commons

Pricing Increase

Due to rising labor and operational costs, some Palmer Commons room fees and services will increase in price on July 1, 2022.  Pricing will be updated on the our website once the new rates are in effect.  Please note that pricing for any previously reserved space and services will be honored, even if the service date occurs after July 1.  Your Event Manager will be happy to answer any questions and looks forward to working with you!
