There was a large foyer at the second floor of Hogwarts Castle. It was carpeted and had high ceilings, with four archways leading to other corridors. There were vases and display cases exhibited here. The room had large portcullises that could be lowered, sealing the room. Peeves trapped Harry Potter in the room this way in 1991. It appears to be a popular hang-out spot, as students of all Houses went there during morning hours. Marilyn could usually be found here in the 1991-1992 school year.[1]
