The throne room of Stormwind City is located deep within Stormwind Keep. This dome-shaped hall contains a large throne that is flanked by golden lions. The throne is known as the Lion Seat and it is found in the center of the room, surrounded by the Royal Guard. The recently returned King Varian Wrynn resided here until his death, after which his son Anduin Wrynn took his place on the throne. The throne room also grants access to the map room behind it, containing the battlemasters and Grand Admiral Jes-Tereth.

During the absence of his father, Anduin Wrynn watched over the city in his father's stead. Lady Katrana Prestor and Highlord Bolvar Fordragon aided the ten-year-old king in his rule, though many remain critical of Stormwind's interim government. Accusations of corruption within the House of Nobles ultimately led to the source of this discord, yet order and integrity was restored to the Stormwind government with King Varian Wrynn's return and the dispatching of the shadowy Lady Prestor by brave heroes, but not before she killed Reginald Windsor and kidnapped Anduin.

Elemental Unrest, Phase 1
- Main article: Elemental Unrest meetings
In patch 4.0.1, a meeting of the Alliance leaders gathers in the throne room (for the Horde version, see Grommash Hold). On the first step of the dais stands a semi-circle facing Varian Wrynn, starting from the left: High Priestess Tyrande Whisperwind, High Tinker Gelbin Mekkatorque, King Magni Bronzebeard, a curiously empty space where another person could stand, then Lady Jaina Proudmoore and Prophet Velen.
A ceremony for the Alliance leaders was later held here.
Battle for Azeroth
King Anduin Wrynn, Genn Greymane, Jaina Proudmoore, and Mathias Shaw held a war council here following the Battle for Lordaeron. With their Zandalari prisoners gone and aided by the Horde, Jaina decided to return to Kul Tiras and bring the kingdom back to the Alliance.
- In the Visions of N'Zoth cinematic, the entrance to the throne room is depicted differently compared with the in-game's. In the game, a straight hallway from the entrance to the Stormwind Keep leads directly to the throne room. In the cinematic, there is a wall at the entrance, meaning that the throne room is entered from sideways.
