Downtown Newark’s Robert Treat Hotel has completed the renovations of its Crystal Ballroom. And befitting a place named the Crystal Ballroom? A three-tier chandelier with 30,000 hand-cut and polished crystals, of course! To top it all off, the chandelier is equipped with technology that enables the staff to change the chandelier’s color.
