Hilton Downtown Color Idea Help

We are doing our reception at the Milwaukee Hilton Downtown, and I'm having a hard time trying to figure out what our wedding colors should be to compliment it.
The room has lots of dark red/burgandy and gold. I origionally wanted purple, what do you think?

    We are getting married there in September 2012 and I had the same fears because of all the red and gold in the room.  We decided to do black, white and purple because those are the colors that I like.  We are going to do some uplighting which I'm hoping will tone down all the red/burgandy.  But I think my FI asked what colors wouldn't look good and I think the only one she said was a blue/teal color.

    Thanks! I'm thinking purple and grey.

    I'm having a similar problem but with a differnt venue, after looking at the room for probably what was WAY too long, I realized if I do all white table cloths (I orginally wanted to do black) it will help wash out the burgandy and gold tones of the room.  I am also thinking about using up lighting and hopefully my pink, white, and black will have no problem shining through!
