Much of the interior and exterior of the building have been kept intact, with modifications made to create the cloak room, ballrooms, and main bar. With the features that have been left over from the past 2 centuries.
Michael A. Cocca Jr., who has been in business since the 1970s, bought the Franklin Plaza in 1992. It quickly became the Capital Region’s most elegant and successful ballrooms.
